We often encourage brides to take a few hours the day of their wedding to relax, take time for themselves, and most importantly soak in the day before the madness of the wedding begins. Lauren Balingit and Kelly Lenard were inspired by something similar in their recent trip to Montana. Keep reading about their inspiration for this lovely outdoor lake session.

From Lauren:

Kelly and I traveled to Montana a few months ago, and we were touched by the abundance of peace we felt.  Kelly and I were really inspired by the idea of taking time for yourself before your wedding day. Among all of the stress that planning a wedding can bring, we feel that you don’t need to relax only after the ceremony is over, but before it even happens. Your last few days of single life go by so fast, so take a few hours, or even a day to breathe and soak in such a special time preparing to marry the one you love.
