A Missoula Wedding

We were really excited to shoot video for Rachael and Jason's wedding because we had also had the opportunity to shoot her older sister's wedding a few years prior. This family knows how to throw a party! It was a hot day for wedding videography in Montana and there was some looming storm activity that threatened the festivities, but besides some wind, it didn't have any negative effect on the celebration. 

After the ceremony at St. Francis Xavier Church, the party started at Canyon River and didn't end til the wee hours. Rachael and Jason were overflowing with love, which was really sweet to see. This is a large family, and an extended family of friends who made this particular wedding truly epic. Their DJ kept the music pumping! And between the music, the light show, and the photo booth, the guests were well entertained. 

Montana weddings can be a challenge in the heat, but we drink tons of water throughout the day. Part of being a videographer is to be well-prepared for anything, which is why we have a lot of backup equipment. 

It was a wild reception to the reverent ceremony and it was nice that the bride and groom asked us to have a drink at the end of the night. The sunset over Missoula that night was spectacular and lent itself nicely to a little time-lapse, as well. Total bonus!  

It was a pleasure working alongside our friends, Nicole and Heather at Green Door Photography, and with Habitat Events
