Firelight Farm Wedding : M + S

Our first wedding of the year has already become one of our favorites! One, because Scott & Megan are amazing! Seriously, we first connected with these lovelys in 2022 for their engagement session here in Jackson Hole. They were in town ripping it up on the slopes and figured why not do our engagement photos somewhere beautiful like in front of the Grand Tetons!? This is when we really got to see what these two were made of. Whoa! Little hardcore choice of words much guys? If you would’ve been there you know that I only mean this in the most awesome of ways. It was negative 14 degrees the morning of their session, cold enough to make even the most seasoned of winter travelers think twice about going out into the elements. Not Scott & Megan, these two were game from the get go and didn’t have any hesitations about getting up before the sun that day. Looking back, I’m sure they were rolling their eyes when I started trying to explain the process of frost bite and how long we could be out in the cold at that temperature and minimal coverage. Anyone who knows Scott & Megan and is reading this is probably thinking ‘oh the sweet irony.’ These two adventurous souls are also well accomplished doctors. They probably should’ve been telling me the signs of frost bite or hypothermia and not the other way around (lol, thanks for putting up with us guys!). Nonetheless, they brought their A game and and totally crushed their winter engagement session here in the Tetons!

We’re always hopeful that when we connect with a couple like Scott and Megan, we’ll be able to work with them again in the future. We were delighted a few weeks later when they asked us if we’d be willing to make the trip up north! They told us all about their wedding and how they would be getting married at the beautiful Firelight Farms in Bozeman, Montana! I’m sure they were figuring if these guys were crazy enough to spend that cold morning in the snow with them, maybe we’d be down for a little winter wedding action in January in Bozeman. They were right! While we’ve done our fair share of winter weddings, and snowy elopements throughout the years, this was going to be our first big traditional wedding all day in the snow, and also our first time visiting Bozeman. After re-connecting with Scott and Megan to learn more about the vision for their day, and doing our due diligence to get the lay of the land at their venue, we grew more and more eager with each passing month! When their wedding day finally arrived, they could not have asked for a better weather situation. I kid you not when I say 10 minutes in and I was already sweating through my first Montana winter experience (lol). In all seriousness, it was gorgeous! Snow covered the landscape near and far, blue skies provided the perfect amount of pop, and the mild temps made you want to stay out in it all day! Usually we have a favorite part of the day but Megan and Scott’s wedding day was essentially perfect from beginning to end! From the personalized details, incorporating their snow boards and stay true to themselves, the overall scene, rocking couples portraits in the snow, and definitely the rocking reception being powered by Gina and The Wildfire, it was a truly epic day! Did I mention swigging spiked warm cider that I didn’t realize was spiked until after? It truly was a memorable day from start to finish and one we won’t soon forget! Big congrats to Scott & Megan, and we hope you all enjoy following along!

Special thank you the amazing vendor team for their beautiful day!
