You know Kaitlin as the darling blogger behind The Every Hostess so it’ll come as no surprise that her engagement session was styled to a T. Along with Greenwood Events, she designed a picnic for two (make that three with their adorable pup, Winston!) set amongst the natural beauty of Montana. Jeremiah and Rachel photographed and if this gallery is an indication of their upcoming wedding, we’re officially waiting on pins and needles for the big day.
Kaitlin and Jeremy are planning a wonderful Montana wedding with Greenwood Events, and we were so lucky to spend an evening with them documenting this fun season of their lives!! Kaitlin and Jeremy live in Colorado but have always vacationed in Montana, so naturally, they want everyone they love to join them in this beautiful state to celebrate their wedding! Even their adorable dog, Winston joined us for a fun picnic in the park, and he definitely stole the show! Kaitlin is a blogger at The Every Hostess, so a styled picnic was absolutely perfect for these two. Darci from Greenwood Events created a stunning bouquet that so perfectly fit Kaitlin’s girly and delicate style. Even Jeremy was looking dapper in a navy suit! We so appreciate when our couples put extra thought and care into their engagement session and let their personalities show!
From the Bride-to-be… Mine and Jeremy’s love story began in Fort Collins, Colorado when we were attending college at Colorado State University. I had known him for a while before he asked me out, and I admit, I was always curious what kind of girl would date this goofy character. Little did I know… that goof was actually my soul mate. Fast forward to five and a half years later, on a holiday trip to London, England, while sitting in a cafe called Champagne and Fromage, Jeremy got down on one knee (after fake knocking something off the table…) and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Now, we are saying “I do” in the last best place on Earth: Whitefish, Montana.
Why Whitefish? Ever since I was born, I grew up being lucky enough to spend time in Whitefish every summer and winter. Whitefish is a place I call home. And by sharing this town with Jeremy throughout the last few years, it has grown into his home too. For our engagement session, we wanted to capture this special moment of being newly engaged with two local Whitefish photographers I have always admired, Jeremiah and Rachel Spray Photography. Following them on Instagram over the years, I have always loved Jeremiah and Rachel. Their photographic style completely captures the unique love and romance between a couple. Every photo they post, I want to jump right in and be in that exact scene! When Jeremy and I were first engaged I knew immediately that I wanted them to photograph us in this special time.
For our engagement shoot, I wanted to feel the most like us in our favorite place on earth, Whitefish. The goal was to capture a simple yet modern mountain feel, featuring beautiful florals and natural moments of love and laughter with my fiancé. Rachel and Jeremiah chose the location, a park just outside of Whitefish with the perfect mountain backdrop for a picnic and frolicking through the park. Greenwood Events created a simple yet feminine bouquet for me to hold that perfectly tied in the colors of Montana. I have to say, however, our puppy Winston stole the show! He knew exactly what was going on and was ready for his moments in front of the camera. For the picnic setting, we sat on a Pendleton Blanket with another gorgeous floral arrangement by Greenwood Events. This was the most “us” setting to our engagement session story, drinking wine and laughing.
