Athena + Jarret: Wedding at the Quaking Aspen

I had so much trouble picking my favorites from Athena & Jarret’s gorgeous wedding.   Every detail was utter perfection.  There were so many special touches and so much thought put into the details that capturing those memories for them was such a pleasure. The couple did a traditional first look at the ceremony- Jarret’s response to Athena when he first saw her was pure adoration.  You can just see his love for her all over his face.

One word I can use to describe this couple in the short time that I met them is thoughtful.  They were constantly thinking of their guests and putting others before themselves- even on their wedding day! Because this was a destination wedding for them, they and a small group of friends and family stayed at the Quaking Aspen Ranch for several days before the wedding day, just hanging out enjoying each other before the big day.  I heard that the groomsmen and groom even had some fun with some shooting and explosives on the Ranch- what better way to enjoy Montana?

I also got to spend a short amount of time the night before the wedding as the group enjoyed the groom’s dinner out on the lighted bridge- it was truly magical as the sun started to set.

We even had a beautiful rainbow pop up out of nowhere as the reception was beginning- God was smiling down his promises on this sweet couple.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Athena and Jarret’s wedding day.  Thank you for allowing me to capture it and share in your special day.  Congratulations to you!
