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 dedicate this blog post to all the people who did not take us seriously when we first announced the idea of starting a wedding planning business. The girls of C+L have come a long way from planning our sorority functions and staging fancy holiday drinks in Alicia’s backyard for Instagram photos (taken on our cell phones).
February 15th, 2017 was a huge milestone for Champagne + Linen. We had our very first styled shoot! Made possible by so many creative souls and amazing vendors found right here in Missoula MT. We are so excited and proud to share with you our first styled shoot: Water & Ice.
We all agreed on two things during the very early stages of planning this shoot. 1] Showcase a Montana winter wedding at a beautiful new venue. 2] Be different.
Thanks to all the amazing vendors, we achieved just that!
