We are so excited to finally present Jewels and Zach’s highlights film! Although they both live in Texas they planned a Montana destination wedding because it’s a place close to their hearts. Jewels’s family has a home in Whitefish and that’s also where Zach proposed. Their family and friends from around the US and Canada gathered on such a beautiful August day to celebrate Jewels and Zach’s wedding & have a rockin’ party!
The wedding was at the gorgeous Whitefish Mountain Resort–in wintertime it’s one of the best ski hills in the US and in summer it’s an outdoor adventure park. Jewels got ready at her family’s condo right in the ski village while Zach and his boys got ready in a rental house nearby. We spent the day with the awesome photographer Lindsey, of Lindsey Jane Photography.
Montana is a very special place for us, too, because Jennifer grew up there. This trip actually marked our son’s first trip ‘home’ to Montana. Luckily, grandma and grandpa drove up to Whitefish to babysit and Jennifer’s brother came to help us shoot the ceremony at the top of the mountain (thanks, Mike!). Of course, it was a challenge to have baby along with us. At that point, Nikita was 10 months old and still waking up a few times at night. Good thing we work well on no sleep

After shooting this fun wedding, we took a little family trip through Glacier National Park and then down to Helena to see relatives.
Thank you Zach and Jewels! And congratulations on your happy marriage – we wish you many years of love together!!
