Okay....This blog post is LONNNNGGG overdue but i am so happy with how these images turned out for Kyle and Alicia!
Alicia is from Washington and one of the co-owners of Champagne + Linen, a one-stop-shop for Montana brides and grooms and ...holy hell... if you are planning a wedding, CALL THEM! They do amazing work with couples planning their special day!
Kyle is from Kalispell, Montana and is a writer/trained journalist in Montana but he is also a bartender!
"The first time we ever saw each other was a college Halloween party. My friends and I made fun of him for looking like an 80's porn star [Alicia went as Steve Urkel]. The next day I went to another Halloween party (#halloweekend) and he asked for my number. I never heard from. Flash forward two months, he called me out ghosting him. After some digging, we realized he typed my name in wrong. After that, we talked every day and the rest is history!"
As we hiked along the Blodgett Canyon Overlook trail, we made jokes and laughed, just getting to know one another! In getting to know Alicia and Kyle, it is so obvious why they work so well together! They are best friends and lovers. Although they are opposite in more ways than one, they work so well together and compliment each other.
"He's extremely extroverted and is always the life of the party. He is always cracking jokes, being spontaneous. He's now known for his karaoke. I definitely believe opposites attract. All those things drew me to him and are now things that I think make us work. He makes me live more in the moment and I make sure things are stable. Kyle's always trying to put a smile on my face, no matter how hard I try not to. We balance each other out very well!." -Alicia
"We're perfect opposites for each other, and it works. I'm a little more spontaneous and extroverted, but I need a stable hand by my side to keep me afloat. She's a little more reserved and always has a plan, but sometimes she needs a nudge to know that' it's OK to let her hair down. She's my guide. I'm her nudge. Without her, I truly don't know where I'd be in life. With her, I want to be the best husband I can be because she's such an amazing wife." - Kyle
Thank you for opening your world Kyle and Alicia, just for a moment to let me capture your connection...your story.
