I met Megan during my senior year in college. Megan and her best friend Sara Mallon and I all lived together (along with 4 other girls in a three bedroom apartment). They would often tell me about life on the farm in Montana, and their tiny town called Bloomfield, which consisted of a 1-pump gas station, a 2 room schoolhouse, and a post-office. The next closest town (with a whopping 9,000 residents) was 30 miles away, and everything else was farmland. So when Megan told me that she would be getting married in her home town, I was thrilled! It was fantastic to finally see the place where my friends grew up.
The wedding day festivities started early Saturday morning with coffee and muffins and lots of hairspray and bobby pins. Most of the bridesmaids slept over at the Hostetler’s house the night before, so all the girls were able to get ready together. Megan was a very calm bride-to-be as she sat and had her hair carefully pinned.
As the bridesmaids finished up with hair and makeup, I snapped a few pictures of some of the “details”… which were classically Megan. I LOVED the purple shoes.
Once we got to the church Megan was laced into her beautiful dress, and she waited inside the church until Jason and the groomsmen arrived. I headed outside to wait with Jason while Megan came up behind him and they saw each other for the first time. Jason was so funny, he was so fidgety while he waited for Megan!
These two were SO much fun to take pictures of, they were naturals on camera! They were so excited to be getting married and so in love, and were having so much fun- laughing and making silly faces at each other- which makes for some great photos.
The ceremony itself was lovely and it was performed by Megan and Jason’s pastor from Minnesota. It was exciting to see them officially tie the knot and be pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Fremont! After the wedding the bridal party went over to a nearby farm to take a a few more pictures.
The reception was held at another farm out on the lawn, surrounded by fields and trees and tractors to boot. It was picturesque!
After dinner and toasting, cakes and visiting with guests, Megan and Jason drove off into the sunset (literally) as they started their new life together.
I am so blessed to have been a part of this special wedding. It was awesome to see my dear friend marry such a great guy, I am so so happy for them!
