Chelsie + Vincent

Our mutual love for the outdoors and fishing brought us together for a lifetime of love, happiness and adventure. We first met on the river floating through Paradise Valley on a hot summer day. Though I caught more fish than him, he still decided to go on a date with me. Our passion for new adventure led us to moving to Big Sky Resort to pursue a new life and career path. On a cold spring afternoon Vincent and I decided to hike up to the bowl at the ski resort. Little did I know a ring was hiding in his pocket. The proposal was perfect complete with the custom ring he designed and the mountain goats and fox that paid a visit on the hike. After living in this mountain paradise, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. Vincent and I come from a large and passionate family, so we knew that it would be an unforgettable wedding filled with laugher and impromptu gatherings throughout the week. Our cakes were made by Vincent’s Aunt, Sandra Barnick, and truly captured our passion for nature and the outdoors. Most of the decor came from my family’s land, making the day even more special and representative of our inner spirits. Even though there were a few road bumps along the way, it will be a day we remember for the rest of our lives. ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES...
