The Last Wedding of the Year!

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end my wedding season this year! Lauren & Jaret were married at Swift River Ranch on one of the prettiest Fall days that we’ve had! The bride was as cool as a cucumber and the only thing the groom was nervous about was their first dance together, but he totally rocked it!

Lauren & Jaret are couple that I just adore because they are so down-to-earth. After doing an engagement session, boudoir session, and now their wedding I feel like I know these two pretty well. Lauren has the most genuine heart and Jaret tries to come off shy, but he is one of the funniest guys you’ll ever meet.

Everything about this wedding was romantic & classic with a hint of rustic-Montana style. The changing leaves made for a gorgeous backdrop during the ceremony and opened up to a bright blue sky. The day flowed from one event to the next and before we knew it, it was time to leave. I’m sure the guests at this wedding continued celebrating all night because watching Jaret & Lauren become husband & wife was definitely a joyous occasion. I am over-the-moon excited that I got to meet these two love birds and be a part of their fabulous day!!

Little Miss Ava couldn’t understand why I was photographing Lauren’s bouquet and not hers so she jumped in!

Normally, I don’t eat cupcakes at weddings but I couldn’t resist these ones! They had a Maple Cupcake with BACON!!!

The bride & groom even gave a special thanks to me & my second shooter during their speech. So incredibly thoughtful!!!
