At 4:00 in the afternoon on October 7, 2023, I turned into a quaint neighborhood alley. Golden fall leaves drifted downward from great maple trees. The day was still warm at a cozy 68 degrees and the Autumn sun cast golden light around even more golden leaves. It was truly the perfect day.
Paige and her party were getting ready in the upstairs apartment of triplex, the balcony overlooking a large garden yard, yet shielded from onlookers with large trees and vines.
After a short moment to capture some details photos, pictures of the group, and getting dressed, the bridal party made their way downtown to the Billings Post. A small building right next to the Billings Depot. The Billings Post is a historical spot where the train station used to be, now it's available to host a variety of events, with weddings and microweddings being a major source of business.
John arrived shortly after with his entourage and quickly after, their wedding ceremony began with guests (and dogs) standing to witness. After a 20 minute ceremony conducted by a relative of the groom and a reading from the groom's mother, John and Paige were married in front of the historic train cart.
Immediately after, guests, dogs, and family surrounded the couple and gave them teary-eyed congratulations. From there, the O'Sullivans and I walked down a few streets to take a few couples photos. Downtown weddings have such a different vibe than mountain weddings, to be honest, I don't know which one I like more. Yes, mountain weddings are stunning, but something about the architecture and urban vibe of a downtown wedding is just so.....modern.
