Elegant Bozeman Wedding | Brooke + Joe

As seen in Montana Bride magazine, this stunning tented wedding in Bozeman had us at hello. Photography by Montana Bride Vendor Matt Ehnes Photography.



“Joe and I met at a Montana State University barn dance. I entrusted him (who was a mutual friend I’d just met) with my grandmother’s ring while I went dancing with a friend. After the dance, I completely forgot about the ring and went outside to cool down. Joe, concerned that I was leaving, ran after me to return the ring. We started chatting, and after seven years of dating, Joe proposed.


Covid is the reason we had our dream wedding. Six weeks before our date, our downtown ceremony and reception venues canceled on us due to the pandemic. Our family agreed to host it instead on our property, and our amazing families and planner, Katalin Green, were devoted to completely redesigning the whole day. We couldn’t have imagined it to turn out more perfectly than it did.”


What advice would you give to other brides planning a Montana wedding?

“Every day in Montana is magical! No matter the weather or challenges you face along the way, it will be the most wonderful day of your life. Some of the best advice we received is to take a moment, just the two of you, to appreciate it all. It goes by so quickly, so take it all in before the moment passes.” –Brooke, the bride
