Candace & Andrew
Andrew’s fingers clasped around the box given to him from his soon to be wife. As he slowly opened it, he saw that it revealed a pin with a portrait on it. Instantly, he looked up at Candace, struggling to keep back his tears as they embraced. Andrew opened up his suit coat so that Candace could pin it in on the inside pocket of his jacket, placing it next to his heart. The portrait on the pin was of Andrew’s mother, who, due to an ongoing pandemic and living in Canada, would not be able to attend her son’s wedding in person. But, this way, Andrew could keep her close on one of the biggest days of his life during Candace and Andrew’s Montana destination wedding at Mountainside Weddings.
Moments later, as the wedding party walked down the aisle, the song “Friday I’m In Love” began to play. This was, after all, a Friday! The lyrics to this song were so fitting for these two. After a crazy 2020, and still in the middle of an ongoing pandemic, all that mattered was the love these two shared and the wedding about to happen – and there was going to be nothing that could get in the way of that.
Throughout an emotional and joy-filled vow exchange, you could see how much these two cared for each other. They were ready to start the rest of their lives together, and the realization was hitting them how special this moment was. After the “I do’s” and portraits with friends and loved ones, they continued to party the night away in the middle of the Montana forest, complete with toasts, dancing, and celebration. We don’t know if they could have imagined it happening any more perfectly than it did. Candace and Andrew! We are so happy for you two! The two of us loved every minute of your Montana destination wedding at Mountainside Weddings. We are so excited to see what the future holds for you and are incredibly grateful to be able to call you our friends.
