Fred & Jacey – Fort Benton Winter Wedding – Fort Benton MT Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Fred and Jacey got married on a gorgeous Saturday in December in Fort Benton, MT and what a wonderful day it was!  This was a wedding we’ve been looking forward to for quite a while, as it was the THIRD Ritland Family wedding we’ve done in the past 18 months!  Yeah, wowsa!  We did Michael & Sarah’s wedding last October (Sarah is Jacey’s sister), then we did Brett & Jessalyn’s wedding this summer (Brett is Jacey’s brother) and now it was Fred & Jacey’s turn to celebrate!  But we were far from the only ones who were excited for this wedding.  Fred & Jacey’s family and friends were so so happy for the couple and were clearly very excited to be celebrating the wedding of these two high school sweethearts.

From working with Fred and Jacey at our previous weddings, and from their super fun engagement session this summer(seriously, if you haven’t seen these pics you MUST check them out – we traveled all over Fred’s family ranch and the scenery and pictures are seriously swoon-worthy!) I knew that we were going to have a BLAST at their wedding.  And boy was I right!  Talk about the perfect end to our 2012 year of weddings:)

Jacey had her heart set on getting some outdoor winter wedding pictures (we were also super excited for that!).  Unfortunately the snow didn’t exactly cooperate (there really wasn’t any on the ground, even though it was cold enough to have ice floating by in the Missouri River – brrrr).  But we did get out in the beautiful winter sunshine to take the Bride & Groom pictures and the Wedding Party pictures.  And I must point out that the only nod Jacey made to the 20-degree weather was her fabulous faux fur shrug.  She didn’t even wear boots!  Nope, this bride rocked sexy strappy high heels the whole day!:)  And when the bridesmaids joined us outside they didn’t even wear their shrugs but not ONCE did I hear even a whisper of a complaint.  They were all there 100% for Fred & Jacey.  Very very awesome.

Of course, the rest of the day was just as fabulous – from getting ready in the gorgeous suite at the Grand Union Hotel, to the beautiful ceremony at the United Methodist Church, to the rockin reception at the Fort Benton Agricultural Museum (Dude.  Could this crowd ever jitterbug!!!!).  It was truly a special day for a very special couple.


Fred & Jacey – thank you for inviting us to share your day.  It was such an honor to be with you and your families again on such a special occasion.  We wish you guys the very very best!
