MONTANA BRIDE VENDORS
"Daniel and I met on Tinder back in early 2016. He had messaged me a few times on the app, and I didn’t respond for awhile. I finally messaged him back and asked him if he wanted to meet up. When we did I honestly believe it was love at first sight! I thought he was the best-looking guy ever! Our first date was to Glacier Park where we spent the whole weekend camping and hiking. From then on, our life grew into an amazing love story. When he first walked into my life I already had a 3-year-old daughter, which he took in as his own and really became her bonus Dad. We later had two more girls. A lot of our memories are from hiking and camping. So when he proposed we were in Yellowstone National Park and on the last day of our trip we visited Old Faithful. Right as Old Faithful was erupting he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. He was so nervous because there were hundreds of people watching him! He had the ring box backward and was shaking so bad. I immediately said YES!
Our wedding was the best day of my life. It was a blur, but it was so special. I put so much thought and planning into the day, and to see all my dreams come true was so special. And I couldn’t have done it without our parents' help. Our families made our wedding possible. Both sides put so much into our day, and I'm so thankful. I’m also thankful that my biggest investment that day was my photos because if it weren’t for those I wouldn’t have remembered half of that day just because it’s so chaotic!" –Whitney, the bride
