How They Met
We met our freshman year of college on the fourth floor of Knowles Hall at the University of Montana. It was friendship at first sight and we started dating a year later. The rest is history.
The Happy Couple
He proposed at Hidden Lake in Glacier National Park by asking me to take a selfie with my GoPro, then getting down on one knee while I unknowingly recorded my own proposal. The Park was already special to us because, years before, we had taken our first road trip together there. That’s why we decided to get married at a beautiful resort just outside of the park, the place that has so much meaning to us as a couple.

How They Chose Vendors
We found all our wedding vendors online, specifically on The Knot. From there, we did further research and chose vendors who best fit our budget, location, and vision.
We moved from Missoula, MT to Juneau, AK five days after getting married so we decided to have an nontraditional honeymoon exploring our new town, chasing waterfalls, combing beaches, hiking to glaciers, and kayaking in the ocean.
What They’d Do Differently
I would make the big decisions sooner so that I could focus on the smaller details closer to the ceremony. I would have felt less overwhelmed and the smaller details wouldn’t have been sacrificed.
Listen to your gut. If a major decision or detail doesn’t feel right, don’t feel pressured to change it until it fits your vision perfectly. It’s your day, and your feelings matter most.
And they lived happily ever after...
