From the beautiful mountain backdrops of Bozeman to the mix of antlers & vibrant floral centerpieces – Emily & Jayden’s Rockin TJ Ranch Wedding was definitely Montana-made with a classic & rustic style!
The couple created all the decorations for the reception including hand-made signs, name cards & painted numbers for the tables, along with antlers that the groom and his father had collected throughout the years. They gifted their guests with Montana-shaped chocolates & custom koozies to commemorate the wedding day. Granny’s Gourmet Donuts were a huge hit for dessert, and Jayden had to throw in a few jokes being a donut-loving police officer! But honestly, who doesn’t like donuts?!
Emily & Jayden’s wedding was centered around the incredibly strong bond of their two families. Their parents have a combined total of 63 years of marriage between the two of them, so they are amazing role models of what commitment & true love really is. Emily chose to do a first look with her dad – after all, he was the first man that ever loved her. It was a moment that brought us all to tears as you could see their undeniable bond. After they hugged and composed themselves, he handed her a little silver heart that had his phone number and the words “24-7-365 Love, Dad” meaning he will always be there for her whenever she needs him.
The wedding party was compiled with family members & childhood friends that had plenty of embarrassing stories to share about the couple. They celebrated late into the night, dancing outside on the patio of Rockin’ TJ Ranch, even as the rain began to fall. Nothing could ruin this party!
After the day was over, Emily & Jayden said, “We would just like to say how special all of our friends and family are to us and how seamless all of our amazing vendors made everything! We feel blessed beyond belief to have found each other, get to spend our lives together and to be surrounded by such amazing people. A wedding is just one day but we hope to make a life together that is even more beautiful.”
