Lexi & Tim’s Big Sky Barn Wedding

Lexi and Tim are seriously one of the most adorable couples on the planet and their summer Big Sky Barn wedding was so dreamy! The soft blue details, the white washed wood walls, the beautiful bridal party, the sweet family, I could go on and on about this day! Can we just go back and do it all over again?!?!  : ) These two are so perfect for each other and it’s so obvious how much they are loved individually and as a couple by all their friends and family. It was a totally packed house in the chapel as everyone gathered to watch these cuties say “I do!” It was such a sweet ceremony and Lexi’s grandpa marrying them was the icing on the cake! Here are a few of our absolute faves from their sweet day!

We photographed the wedding of this sweet couple, Marissa & Zach, just a few weeks before so it was fun getting to see them and their families again!  Marissa & Lexi’s little sisters are best friends so their families are super close.  : ) Love you guys!

Their last dance was one of favorites of all time! No distractions, no other guests dancing with them, just the two of them for the last time on their wedding night! Full disclosure, I almost cried!  It was SO sweet!
