Making Memories in Missoula

When one of your dearest friends falls in love and decides to get married, you go. Even if it means driving your family for 10 hours. You go.

So go we did.... to Missoula, Montana!

Heidi and Michael.... Ahhh, love!



Chloe's toes looked super adorable for the occasion!....



I don't think I can properly explain what a cool town Missoula is. If you've never been there, you need to consider a little visit. It's an outdoorsy urban oasis with beautiful views in every direction and mild temperatures. Wow, we have loved it so far and have another day still!

The historic downtown is super cool with cafes and boutiques galore....


The ceremony was just outside of Missoula at Placid Lake. The scenic drive was stunning every bit of the way. Here is just a taste of what we saw....


We got there just a little early to help set up. The scene could not have been more gorgeous!....






Chloe made fast friends with all the little girls while we waited. They were SO cute with her!....




The ceremony was beautiful....



and Heidi made a beautiful bride!....



Theirs is a beautiful love story. They were high school sweethearts who went their separate ways, then became dear friends after Michael's divorce and fell in love all over again. Heidi not only became a wife today, but a mother to Michael's daughter too. What a special new family they make!....



Congrats, you two. We are so happy for you both!....

Love the photos - what a lovely family indeed.


My old roommate lives in Missoula now. I've been thinking of a visit for a while and if I knew you would be there I would have tried to get there for this week so us and the girls could meet in person! Let us know if you plan another trip there and we just might catch up!

I just found your blog thru a friends blog... our daughters are so similar! It was good to read her story. Whitney had IS also, and was treated with topamax and steriods. She also had the incessant crying as an infant. I stole the quote from your blog sidebar and put it on mine. Hope you don't mind. I'm gonna add you to my reader. Nice to "meet" you ;) Your angel baby is GORGEOUS!! PS. I live in UT too...
