Adri and Matt used their heritage as inspiration for their wedding. He comes from Spanish, Cajun and Norwegian settlers, leading back to Nelson Story who led the last cattle drive from Texas to Montana in the late 1800s. She is Swedish and grew up Mormon.
They were married at Durnam Meadow in Montana, having an outdoor ceremony overlooked by rolling hills. Matt made a ceremony backdrop, wooden triangles festooned with florals and ferns, and the rest they left to the stunning natural landscape. The ceremony, performed by Matt’s uncle, included Nordic inspired vows and the drinking of mead.
The bride was wearing a gorgeous boho lace wedding dress with bell sleeves, the groom was wearing a black suit, a lavender shirt and bow tie. Both guys were rocking catchy braided hairstyles in Nordic style to celebrate their heritage. Adri and Matt arrived to their reception in style – on Adri’s trike! It was held at Buck’s T-4 Lodge, as with Montana’s crazy weather they didn’t know if it would be a hot day, or snowing! The lodge took care of all the catering, booze and lodging for their guests, which made it the couple’s biggest expense in their $30,000, but one that they don’t regret for one minute. Katalin Green provided lush floral arrangements which trailed down banquet style tables and across ceilings, as well as the gorgeous bouquet and ceremony backdrop. The trike provided hours of spontaneous entertainment for their guests, and Western Cider helped get the party started.
