Summer Big Sky Barn Wedding | Paige + Ryan


Paige and Ryan were married last weekend at Big Sky Barn, and it was such a beautiful and fun wedding day. This sweet couple had to wait a few extra months for their dream wedding day, so it was an extra special celebration! After seeing Paige and Ryan share the cutest, emotion-filled First Look, it was obvious that the wait was well worth it! (Paige and Ryan joked that their original date in March would have been much cooler than the July heat we had on their wedding day…but Paige said, “Could be worse! Could be cancelled!”)

One thing I loved about Paige and Ryan’s wedding is that it was filled with special moments throughout the day. The morning started with Paige’s mom and two sisters helping her into her dress, and then she shared a First Look with her dad. (Good thing we had some tissues on hand!) Then, Ryan got to see his beautiful bride in her perfect dress during their First Look outside, and they exchanged gifts.

The chapel was filled with gorgeous flowers from Striking Stems, and the altar looked so beautiful with the large floral arrangements. During the ceremony, Paige and Ryan lit a unity candle while a live musician (her sister’s fiance!) played guitar and sang in the background. It was such a sweet, sentimental moment before Paige and Ryan shared their First Kiss and were announced as Mr. and Mrs. O’Connor! Of course, the fun was just getting started as guests moved over to the main barn for the reception, and we took some bride + groom sunset photos!


Paige is a dancer, so I knew she would have some fun surprises up her sleeve at the reception! Sure enough, her father-daughter dance was filled with twirls, dips, and lifts, and all of the guests were amazed at the choreographed routine! Later that night, we heard toasts from Paige’s sisters, Ryan’s brother, and the Father of the Bride. He had guests laughing and crying during his moving speech. Paige used to cheer for the Houston Texans, so she did a special routine with a few of her old teammates later in the night!

It was such an energetic reception filled with dancing (and some high kicks!), late night Whataburger, and a sparkler grand exit. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. O’Connor! We hope your future is filled with love, happiness, and reasons to always keep dancing together! 🙂
