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!

You Will Forever Be My Always: Dan + Becca

This wedding at the Quaking Aspen Ranch that borders the East Rosebud River was absolutely breathtaking.  So many special details went in to making Dan and Becca’s wedding a day to remember.  The couple chose to end their celebration by sending wish lanterns into the night sky.  Despite the breeze making it hard to light them, the guests persisted, and the result was so romantic and beautiful.  I hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse into this special wedding.  Congratulations Dan & Becca- thanks for letting us share in your day.
