The best value of our entire wedding - they made our dreams come true!
The title says it all. We worked with Alicia as our planner and her husband Neal as our photographer. I can't recommend them enough. They helped us create a totally unique wedding event and we absolutely couldn't have done it without them. We came to them with some really unusual, some would say crazy, ideas, and they seriously didn't blink. They were patient, flexible, creative, professional, fun, thoughtful, devoted, talented - there aren't enough amazing adjectives to cover the amazingness they brought to our event. Our guests were stunned at the event we put together, AND, most fun of all, they were a pleasure to be around and have at our event. We got quotes from two other planners and they were way beyond our means, yet we could tell right away that Alicia and Neal fit our ethos much better AND provided above and beyond services that actually fit our budget. Feels like a miracle we found them and I'm still overwhelmed by the work and time they put in. Not to mention we LOVE the photos. Hire them!!Sent on 07/10/2021

Perfect Despite So Many Hurdles
Neal and Alicia were amazing to work with. They truly went the extra mile to make us feel special - especially after our first wedding date was canceled and our family could no longer attend due to COVID. On top of everything, the wildfire smoke rolled in and visibility was terrible. 2020 was not our good luck year! But Alicia found little ways to incorporate our dogs, have an instagram-worthy picnic on the beach, and make the day super special. We went for a hike and Neal's photos ended up beautiful despite the lack of visibility. He really captured my husband and I well, including our emotions and personalities. I am very grateful for everything they have done for us and would highly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 02/10/2021

I would recommend Alicia and Neal 1000 % From the start they have been there for us and made everything stress free and comfortable. They helped with picking the perfect ceremony spot, air b & b, salon for hair and makeup including straight down to restaurants.Sent on 08/27/2020
Off the Beaten Path Wedding's reply:Nicole, it was such a joy to photograph and officiate your elopement! So glad that life brought you to Montana and that you decided to celebrate your love in the mountains. You two have such beautiful chemistry and are so much fun together! We're so glad it was stress-free, even with just 10 days to plan. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day - we'll never forget the experience.
A dynamite duo, Alicia & Neal are so gracious and so full of a desire to serve and excite their clients with ideas that are off the charts and off the grid. From Ranch weddings to mountain top elopements in front of waterfalls no concept is to big or too small. Offering both planning and photography services makes for an excellent combination for documenting the details of your wedding. Look forward to helping them to support more lovely couples in the years to come.
