Kelly Schmidt

I was born and raised in upstate NY but have since transplanted to beautiful Bozeman, MT and have been a resident for the past 8 years. I have a background in business management, photography and event planning. Since November of 2013 I have taken over the management of Le Petit Chateau and I could not be happier! In addition to the management, I am the design/ wedding planner exclusively for Le Petit Chateau. I absolutely love working with all of my clients to create the wedding of their dreams. I am married to my best friend and the mother of one fantastically charming 4 year old daughter,  Kembri Lucille. You may see her around while I am working weddings as she is sometimes my assistant. She is always excited to see the "princesses" in their beautiful dresses and about to marry their prince!

I have both a biased and a unique perpective of Le Petit Chateau. 

First the biased- I first laid eyes on Le Petit Chateau in 2010 when my now-husband showed it to me. I was a little skeptical at first when he said that he found a great place for us to be married ! I didn't know what to expect...but I reluctantly went along to see this place. It was love at first sight. The grounds were amazing. Surrounded by trees and breathtaking landscaping, amidst the natural beauty was the Chateau. Picturesque. Serene. I dont know if I actually did, but I wanted to pat my husband on the back! So, if I haven't said it and you are reading this....good job honey! This is where we started our life together and I could not have envisioned a better place (or a better man to start it with). Our day was made even sweeter by the wonderful owners of the chateau, Dave and Sue. They are beautiful people that have since become dear friends. 

The Unique perspective comes from being a wedding photographer and having the priviledge of shooting weddings at the Chateau.  Le Petit Chateau is a photographers dream. From the gorgeous architecture indoors to the perfect backdrop outdoors- there isn't a spot that doesn't photograph well. 

If you are exploring our site (whether you are the bride/groom, friend/family or other) CONGRATULATIONS! We look forward to the possibility of working with you in the future to make your wedding day as unique and memorable as you! Please don't hesitate to contact me for a showing- Pictures cannot capture the beauty of this space!
