And so this is life in Southeast Montana...

It didnt rain.

the peonies didnt wilt.

                                         And there was no strong winds to knock down 
the centerpieces...

or the signs to the celebration - 

the first wedding ever 
on this humble homestead 
in the high hills of the Custer National forest.

it was a good day.

dad is happy.
mom is happy.



you want to see the bride & groom too?



We invite you to visit Cabel Noteboom's photography facebook page to see his incredible work, 
~Annabel & Chris's incredible day ~

to see some photos taken less then 48 hours ago by Cabel & Kam

a phenomenal Montana Husband and Wife Photography team!

But for me, I need to decide; nap or do 120 dishes, forks, knives, spoons, napkins,goblets, flutes, glasses, tablecloths, tent decor and candle holders....and all the numerous things I hotglued together...
I think Im having hotglue gun withdrawal though - i broke a glass and instantly thought 
"wheres the glue gun?"...

and poor Dexterdog has a leftover steak hangover too...

Special shoutout to our wonderful friends Mike & Dorene (who took the above photos!) You guys rock!!! And to William & Karen, whom the wedding couldnt take place if Uncle Bill didnt show up! And to Denny, Kenny, Ridge for help in setting up the tents, to Jeanne our caterer and wonderful Gina, whose brought her soon to deliver puppies Dachshund - WHO had puppies at the catering outfit, starting at the ceremony - the first puppy is named Annabel LOL!! and shoutout to Anne, Jane, Andrea, Leah, Lindsay, Libby, Larry and Deb And beth and Dan and Andrew and Mark and David and Brooke and Kat and Ashley and Valeri and Abby too for all the things, big and small that they did to help - if i forgot you, please forgive me!

This wouldnt have happened without all your support!

THANK YOU from the bottom of my boots to the top of my grey hairs !!!!!!!!!!!!!





  1. The pictures on the green sofa in the green field are inspired! Lovely, just lovely. Go take a nap. You earned it.

  2. The bride and groom are gorgeous. So is the setting, something they will always remember as very special. Mom looks fabulous, and from the last name I see, I guess dad must be some good old Swede? I'm so happy all went well, not a drop of rain or anything to spoil it.

  3. OMG, woman!!! What a beautiful wedding that turned out to be. That setting is straight out of a fairy tale. Your photographers are indeed some talented folks. I LOVE that tractor shot. And the mom and dad of the bride ain't to shabby either!! Now, catch your breath and rest a bit.
