Steffi + Michael | Chico Hot Springs | Emigrant MT

Moving to England together early on was very good for our relationship because both weekends to European capitals and dark nights in the front of our thatched roof cottage’s fireplace tend to be very romantic. Our memories of this time will be of small dinner parties in our cozy kitchen and long walks through Paris, Brugge, Stockholm, and Budapest.

 One mid-autumn Sunday evening Michael cooked a more conventional but classically delicious dinner of steak and potatoes, which led to a quiet but joyous proposal on the sofa in front of the fireplace. We called our mothers and grinned. Soon after I shared with him my dream to marry in Montana, my favorite place since I began vacationing there with my family at age seven.

Our families traveled from Washington, DC, and San Francisco, CA, and our friends came from New York, Ohio, England, and Kenya, so we planned a Friday evening welcome barbeque for all guests at the Popstand in Livingston and encouraged them to stick around for the July Fourth Livingston Roundup Rodeo to cap off the whole weekend. It was a blast. Heavy thunderstorms in the days preceding the long weekend cleared the air and painted the sky with Montana’s signature popcorn clouds.

We loved our Montana wedding because the land does half the work for you. Our wedding was comfortable and convenient while being fancy and gorgeous without additional effort. Our guests traveled from far and near but left with a piece of Montana in their hearts, from the people and places they saw both before, during, and after the Michael Steffi event of  2017.
