Zoe and Cory met many years ago in Missoula when they were out with friends at a bar. Cory also happened to be Kappa Alpha Theta’s houseboy, which Zoe knew but hadn’t officially met him yet. It was instant chemistry (and I would know, Zoe and I were sorority sisters!), and it’s been nothing but bliss ever since.
I was so honored when Zoe messaged me about C+L helping out with their wedding. I can’t believe how the years have flied since college, and I had been keeping up with her and Cory’s adventures via the usual social media routes, and was so happy that they were finally tying the knot! We couldn’t wait to be a part of their winter wonderland wedding in Bozeman, MT at Foster Creek Farm back in February. This was our very first wedding of the new year, and we could not wait to kick it off with a celebration we were certain would be the bee’s knees.
Some of the main highlights from Zoe and Cory’s wedding were their gorgeous ceremony they had on the outdoor deck of the main barn, Zoe’s killer fur wedding wrap, and their fun party with tons of bangin hits that us three ladies couldn’t help but dance inappropriately to and sing along to in the kitchen. Zoe’s wedding was dreamy, a lil’ bit steamy, and so fun. All the guests truly enjoyed themselves, the food (ummmmm let’s all take a minute to admire soup bars and doughnuts for dessert!) was out of this world, and there were so many sweet moments like this one.....
We covered a LOT of ground in the hours leading up to the ceremony. We did all the table design, worked our booties off to pull off Zoe’s gorgeous arch, and coordinated with The Garage who catered Zoe’s ah-mazing soup bar. We even set up her amazing dessert table from Granny’s Gourmet Doughnuts, and in our signature style we even took out a few lipstick stains
MIssy Short, Zoe’s photographer, captured each and every moment of her perfect day, including all of the little details. You know us, we LOVE the details!
Zoe’s sweet words about us were the icing on the cake. Here’s a snippet of what she had to say about her experience with us….
“....They worked with all of our vendors, guests, and bridal party to make sure that everything transitioned smoothly from event to event without my husband or I ever having to lift a finger. To top it off, they even blotted out several stains that got spilled on my dress and my husband's shirt throughout the evening. The women at Champagne and Linen are three of the most savvy, prepared, down-for-a-challenge, and genuinely devoted women you will ever meet. It was an honor to have them be a part of our wedding, we know it wouldn't have been the same without them. Thank you C+L!"
We couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off our wedding season! Thank you Zoe and Cory for asking us to be a part of your special day. We hope you’re enjoying your incredible honeymoon in Grenada (drool)!

We were lucky enough that our dear friend (and go-to wine connoisseur) Jessica refered us to her friends, Zee + Tyler. Zee + Tyler are currently living in Chicago (YAY Montana destination wedding!). We didn’t have the pleasure of meeting them in person until the week of their wedding. They are our ideal clients - their main focus was to make sure their friends and family were having a good time, and man, their attendees had a blast!
Z+T’s wedding was at Sky Ridge Ranch which is nestled in at the base of the beautiful Mission Mountains. There were so many different locations for photographs - birch forest, a bridge over the pond, the beautiful barn, the retro truck, gosh the list goes on and on.
There were so many meaningful touches incorporated into Z+T’s wedding. The first was that Tyler’s best man was their adorable german shepard Raji. He was there through the whole night soaking up love from all guests. We love a couple who includes their fur babies!
Side note: can we talk about how amazing the bridal party looked? We love the mismatched look for both bridesmaids AND groomsmen. Dusty bridesmaids dresses are one of the biggest trends this summer (Marissa + Jonah’s maids also had similar colors!).
The second highlight for us was that Zee and her dad decided to forgo the typical father daughter dance. Instead they had a competition to see who could make five baskets (with their beach balls) quickest. Cheating was highly encouraged. Zee also played in her crazy amazing heels!
After the meaningful first, father/daughter, and mother/son dances, the guests partied the night away. RMF killed it with the music! The whole wedding day really showed us what was most important to Z+T - having a good time with their friends + family!
***UPDATE*** Since we shared this wedding, it has been featured in Rocky Mountain Bride. Check is out!
C+L had the honor of coordinated Jonah + Marissa 's wedding at a family friend's home in Red Lodge, Montana. Marissa happens to be Alicia and Mariah's sorority sister. She is also a talented wedding photographer who participated in our vintage spring styled shoot.
When we first launched Champagne + Linen, Marissa was one of the first people we told. She was so excited and supportive. Right then she would want us to coordinate her wedding (keep in mind she wasn't engaged at this time...). Flash forward a few weeks, Jonah + Marissa were engaged!
Jonah + Marissa are seriously the coolest couple. I mean, look at them. Their wedding attire is on point and so authentic to who they are. Their ceremony and reception space was even dressed up – their alter was complete with a Persian rug!
We love mismatched bridesmaid dresses and Marissa's ladies KILLED it. We love when brides give their girls the freedom to have different styled and colored dresses. It ensures that they can find a dress that looks amazing on them. The champagne, mauve and dusty blues looked beautiful with their wild greenery bouquets.
The men, oh the men. They all wore dark navy suites with a killer thin floral tie. They were such a fun group and Kristin capture so many fun moments, wait until you see them below!
We've seen Jonah and Marissa's relationship grow over the years and are so excited to see them in this next adventure - marriage!
