Rustic Chic Wedding at Snowline Acres

February 10, 2023 BY: Bailey

“Shawn and I met in April of 2020. I was a travel nurse coming to Kalispell, Montana to work. I had a very difficult time finding housing until a relative made some connections for me. When I moved into the area, I met my landlord Shawn. We hung out every day for a few weeks while I quarantined. We did a lot of hiking, golfing, skiing, fishing and he even took me hunting. We fell in love with each other very quickly. When you know you know. Shawn proposed on Christmas Eve of 2021. We were in Mesa, Arizona for my new travel assignment. He chose Christmas time because it is my favorite time of the year and Christmas Eve is when my family exchanges presents and since Shawn and I were alone in Arizona he didn’t want that tradition to end so he gave me the most special gift of all when he asked me to be his wife. We wanted to get married soon but still have the perfect wedding. I chose one of the available weekends in September and actually came to find out it was my grandparents wedding anniversary, so it was extra special. Planning a wedding from Arizona was hard so I knew I was going to need help. So I was overjoyed when Kate with Huckleberry Weddings was available to help me with design and styling. I knew I wanted our wedding to resemble a rustic glam. I wanted the natural woods with metals and earth tone colors with ivories, terracotta, rust, cinnamon, green with some copper tones. Shawn had a custom suit made in a beautiful olive green made for our wedding and inside he had it embroidered with our names and wedding date. Wedding days are unpredictable, things can happen, weather can change especially for us in the mountains, but the smoke cleared enough to see the mountains, the temperature was perfect, and everything came together beautifully.”

– Kelsey, the bride
