Zollinger Wedding | Hamliton, MT Wedding Photographer
Let's just start this one out with giving a moment of silence for the beautiful Hamilton, MT. If I could pick a destination wedding location, it would DEF be Montana! This was my first time visiting Montana, and I was completely blown away with the beautiful scenery.
Travis and Ari are long time friends of Jared and I. Jared has been close friends with Travis for many, many years, so when they asked me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond honored. I love getting to serve and be right there for the bride when they are one of my closest friends. I am biased x 100, but I think the details of this backyard wedding were out of this world.
Ari grew up in Hamilton, and they decided they wanted to host the wedding in the backyard of the house she grew up in. When I showed up, I was blown away by the beauty of the entire residence. Their house was so cute and charming, with the cutest little yellow porch swing out front. The icing on the cake was the backyard, though. It was beyond beautiful. They had the best little nook with a firepit, the most amazing trees, and the light out there was dreamy!
When Ari walked down the isle, Travis started to tear up, and I just lost it. If you know Travis, you know that he is not one to cry, so this made their wedding extra special. When the groom gets emotional, everyone gets emotional, am I right?
I think their wedding day was pretty special, but my favorite part was the fire that they built once the sun went down. They gathered all of their close friends and family around, and just hung out and chatted around the fire. The perfect way to end the perfect day.
