We first met Cassidie and Austin during a bustling wedding fair waaaay back in 2019. Jake was the one to talk details with them and I remember so vividly the way he described this amazing couple he met when we caught up at the end of the day. He told me how adventurous and spontaneous they were and basically how they were "our people."
Jake is a great judge of character (obviously, he chose yours truly), so I just KNEW that a wedding with these two would be so special. During long chats on the phone with Cassidie and next during their engagement adventure session up in Glacier National Park, all of us really connected. I love when we click with our couples like we did with them!
Fast forward to August - Cassidie and Austin said their vows at a gorgeous private estate in Bigfork, Montana, at one of our very favorite places. It was absolutely gorgeous! The venue, the flowers, Cassidie's wedding dress and veil (it went on for daaaays and it couldn't have been more stunning), the water in the background, the petals lining the ceremony aisle, the pretzel and smore's bar. Everything about it screamed sweet little backyard wedding and I loved it all!
After the ceremony (which was so freaking sweet BTW), Cassidie's first words to Austin were, "Oh my gosh, I'm FINALLY married!" It was seriously the sweetest moment! These two knew how to soak in every minute together on their wedding day.
It was a complete surprise that someone painting "just married" on the back of a wooden boat that was used as the drink cooler. The couple didn't want to waste it, so they emptied it out of drinks and ice, turned it over, and got in the lake with it! Cassidie's real words were, "You only get married once! Let's do it!" Gosh I love that girl!
