Megan & Derick

 

Where to begin with this couple?! First of all, Megan and I have been friends ever since high school. Our brothers were friends and we were in sports together. To say I was elated to have the honor of shooting their wedding and engagement would be an understatement! 

Megan and Derick met in college while doing their favorite activity, snowboarding. When we discussed our engagement session, I knew Megan would want something to do with snow, snowboards, and ski hills. We spent the first part of our afternoon at Sam's Taproom. We then trekked up the hill to Red Lodge Mountain. Megan and Derick were so giddy and goofy. Derick sure has a way of making that girl smile!

This beautiful wedding was stunning down to every last detail. From the handmade paper place settings, to the crystal chandeliers, everything was in place. The couple included multiple desserts from Your Story Cakes, games for the guests, and a gorgeous cocktail hour to provide the photographer time to spend alone with them. The venue, Swift River Ranch, is located close to the Yellowstone River, providing a soothing water sound for all guests to enjoy as they witnessed the two starting their lives together. The couple, in constant giggle, made all the guests and vendors feel incredibly welcome. A true Montana style wedding.

Not only were Megan and Derick extremely fun to capture, I loved being able to document all of the intricate details. Megan chose Patricia Clark as her day of coordinator. Not only did this make the day run smoothly, it helped allow me to capture all moments thanks to her detailed schedule! Megan worked with Brittany Halvorson with Penned Designs, Better to Gather Events, Your Story Cakes, Montana Brewing Company, and Top Notch Catering.

This wedding went off without a hitch. The sunset was incredible, the trees were a crisp, spring green, and the reception was a fun celebration. Capturing their day will be a memory a cherish for years to come!
