Stephanie and David got married with the gorgeous Mission Mountains shining down on them on a beautiful September day. David and his family have been friends of ours since I was a child, and he was one of my first fishing buddies so to be able to photograph his wedding meant so much. Meeting Stephanie was such a joy, these two are kind, easy going and have the most robust support system of friends and family. They met working in adjacent labs at the University of Montana, her preparing to go to pharmacy school and he for medical school. After David left for school in New York, they dated long distance until Stephanie started school in Philly and they got to see each other more regularly, “faithfully riding the megabus back and forth every weekend.” After medical school David started his residency in Philly where the two now live together. These two couldn’t wait to get married, so after the original wedding plans fell through due to the pandemic, they eloped in the Bob Marshall Wilderness on a backpacking trip. Such a romantic story, it’s amazing that it was a backup plan! A very suitable wedding story considering they share a passion for all things outdoor, hiking and fishing included (look at that cake!). They returned to their home State, to celebrate their love and marriage with loved ones at the lovely Rugged Horizons venue when it was safe to do so. Stephanie could not have looked lovelier in her gown, and her amazing bridal party had the best reaction seeing her in it for the first time. David looked handsome in his blue suit and colorful tie that matched his super fun group of groomsmen. The evening was full of heartfelt toasts and an overwhelming sense of support for this couple choosing to be each others person for the rest of their lives. A testament to this support was the effort that family put in preparing all of the beautiful food for the guests. A true case of soulmates finding one another, this was a really amazing day to be a part of. Congratulations David and Stephanie!
