Sweet Home Montana and Beautiful Wedding

Wedding Reception Venue
Wow this post is long overdue!  August was a delightful month and the highlight was my brother's wedding.  We got to spend a week in Montana leading up to and following the wedding.  Montana, as always was beautiful.  My mom rented a house near the wedding venue so the whole family could stay together and we had some amazing views from the house and venue.  We prepped for the wedding by making pies for the reception (and meals for the house for the week):

Strawberry Rhubarb 


Then it was on to Montana for wonderful family time, delightful evenings with our family and the bride's family, laughter, and games.  The wedding was gorgeous and I'd be hard pressed to find a happier bride and groom!  Here are some pictures of the amazing Montana scenery (one of our favorite places for sure) from our time there and some of the things we made for the wedding (sorry, I'm not actually putting up pictures of the wedding as those are the bride & groom's to share :).

The bar my dad made for all the Homebrew 
Our wedding gift we made for them, a Mason Jar Chandelier

The ceremony site, up the hill, you can just see the gazebo

Wonderful Wedding View


The rain waited until after the ceremony and stayed only briefly 

How many weddings have a Rainbow as a backdrop?  Amazing

Sunset from the Reception Hall

Lovely end to a lovely wedding and beautiful start for an amazing couple!

After the wedding we had family time Friday and enjoyed both families again plus lots of games and laughter at the house.

The view from the back deck of the house.  Not too shabby.  We also had some amazing and beautiful summer storms.  And some delightful games of Bocce Ball and Croquet.

We came home on a Saturday so after unpacking, putting in a little face time at  friend's BBQ, and my hubby going back to work, we got to spend Sunday evening at our lake with aunts, uncles, cousins, and my grandma.  I think a sunset boat ride and swim was exactly the right ending to a wonderful week.

Wonderful evening for a sunset swim and boat ride

Perfect ending to the week
