Brett & Jessalyn – Ranch Wedding – Highwood & Fort Benton Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

What do you get when you cross gale force winds, 90 degree weather, a couple of semi-truck-wind-breaks (yes you read that right), a band in the living room (yep, you read that right too!), some of the most gorgeous country God put on the face of this earth, a bunch of fantastic family and friends, and a bride & a groom who are completely smitten and ridiculously wonderful?  Well, the Ritland-Bahnmiller wedding of course!

Scott and I returned to the Highwood/Fort Benton area last weekend for Brett & Jessalyn’s wedding and it was quite the memorable event.  The wind was blowing so hard [all. day.] that at times I was worried it might lift our bride right off the ground (I kid you not.  It was some craaaaaaazy wind people!).  I know it probably wasn’t the weather that Jessalyn would have *picked* for her wedding day, but when we showed up that morning she greeted us with the most radiant smile and it was immediately clear that this was going to be wedding day with a focus on those things that are most important:  love, family, friends, laughter, love, and more love.   As the day progressed it was obvious that although people might be talking about the wind at this wedding for years to come, ultimately this day would be remembered not for the wind, but for the joy and laughter that Brett & Jessalyn shared with all of their friends and family.

Brett & Jessalyn – you two could not be more wonderful!  Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day.  It was truly an honor.

Okey dokey people – are you all ready for this week’s Scott vs Megan Contest??  Yeehaw!  Here’s how it works:  Scott and I have each chosen a few of our favorite images from Brett & Jessalyn’s wedding and now we want to know which image is your favorite!  Voting is easy:  just comment below and tell us the Image Number of your favorite picture (Image Numbers are above each picture).  Bonus – tell us why you love it!!:)

Just a heads-up:  sometimes the Comments boxes take a little while to load – if there isn’t anywhere to type your comment the page is probably still loading.  Just let the page load/think/spin for a while and then you should be all set:)  If it still isn’t working for you feel free to leave a comment on the Megan Lane Photography page on Facebook ( – just be sure to tell me what Image Number you’re voting for!

Serious bragging rights are on the line for Scott and me—PLUS every vote is helping Brett & Jessalyn earn credits toward a beautiful mounted print from their wedding.   Spread the word to your family & friends—the more votes the merrier!—and happy voting!!:)
