Blushing Spring Montana Wedding with Locally Sourced Decor

Montana weddings typically make you think of sweeping mountain views, rustic decor, and a heavy focus on ranch themes. This amazingly talented team of Bozeman event pros wanted to showcase the romantic side of Montana, starting with a blushing spring color scheme, delicate floral arrangements, and the cutest little white dress! Keeley McKay Photography and Happenings Montana are truly a dream team when it comes to marrying chic city style with locally sourced details that showcase the beauty of Montana!

Blushing Spring Wedding Ideas with Montana Chic Style

Montana may be known for rough and tumble living and rugged beauty, but this team wanted to show the softer side of spring in Montana! With a focus on delicate ikebana-inspired design, blushing spring colors, and graceful bridal styling, they created a stunning take on a Bozeman wedding!

 Full of local details, from foraged florals to locally handmade ceramics, this spring-inspired bridal session is a beautiful blend of romantic and whimsical elements, grounded by a handful of earthy, masculine, and modern touches. Designed and coordinated by Kris Bart with Happenings Montana, the objective was to bring some modern flair to Montana wedding design, while honoring Montana’s roots with handmade leather and wood accents.

Blushing Spring Bouquet

Bozeman bridal boutique Jasmine Lilly Bridal helped find the perfect wedding dress looks to capture the wild and free at heart style of a Montana bride!

Embracing both the feminine and the modern, we chose a beautiful, romantic Anna Kara ceremony dress that felt fresh with the deep plunge neckline without foregoing the traditional silhouette of a wedding dress.

Ethereal Hair & Makeup Artistry paired the delicate lace and tulle dress with a side braid hairstyle that felt perfectly untamed. A smoky eye and blush lip were a gorgeous complement to the bride’s long platinum hair.

The blushing spring flowers for the bride’s bouquet and the intimate reception table decor added an ethereal beauty that was inspired by the surrounding nature.

At the heart of everything we did was the inherent beauty of the Gallatin Valley in the spring: the colors and textures first and foremost. But we knew that we did not want to fall into the traditional “rustic” Montana trap and it was important to us to incorporate a modern take on Montana wedding design. In addition to the colors and textures of springtime in Montana, we were inspired by the balance between feminine, romantic elements and organic, more masculine ones that is so abundant here, from feminine florals and pastels to handmade leather goods and wood accents.

To create a locally sourced wedding with artisan roots, they turned to local crafters to find the perfect tabletop details!

Bare Minimum Ceramics provided the handmade plates, cake stand, and flower vases. Sleek and neutral without being stark, they were the perfect compliment to the modern, organic feel of the shoot and added a touch of masculinity to the flower-heavy table.

The table was truly a labor of love: Montana is known for its hospitality and we wanted to convey that sense of invitation and welcoming in an elevated and beautiful way through color and texture. The warm tones of the florals, taper candles, and the velvet napkins, along with the handmade ceramic plates made the table feel inviting and approachable, while glass stemware, and elegant place cards.

Florist Rowan and Larch created a hanging flower chandelier over the sweetheart table to add an organic design element. The blush and gray tabletop was set with minimalist centerpieces inspired by Japanese design to add creative arrangements to the classic spring colors.

The florals were the focal point: they provided much of the modern elements, from the Japanese ikebana arrangements on the sweetheart table and as lounge decor, while emphasizing the romantic feel through a neutral color palette with pops of blush pink. The organic shapes of the centerpieces, installations, and bouquet brought in a touch of the wildness of Montana.

We chose a fun, flirty Odylyne The Ceremony mini dress for the reception: the puff sleeves and short hemline made for such a fun and modern take on the reception dress!

Tailored and Tied provided the wood cocktail tables and modular lounge backdrop, which was created specifically to bring life to Rowan and Larch’s floral vision for the space. The wood tables honored our agricultural roots here while grounding the space, and the modular backdrop was so easy to quickly set up and construct the floral installation. The clean lines added a touch of modern flare to the otherwise organic space.
