Amanda & Zach were married at the beautiful St. Pius X Church and then had a Zoo Montana Wedding Reception. Even though it was an incredibly hot July day, they embraced every moment and had fun celebrating with their friends and family! Their details and decor were so pretty and just wait until you see the flowers!!
Amanda’s mother surprised her with their late grandmother’s ring that symbolized her something old, borrowed, and blue.
Zach & Amanda chose to do a private vow reading before their ceremony which was super special. Even though they couldn’t see each other, you could hear the excitement in their voices!
Zoo Montana Wedding Reception
Their Love Story
Zach and Amanda met at a local brewery for a late night bite. Of course, the first date was ended with a walk down to the Big Dipper for a scoop of ice cream! They continued to spend hours together through the tail-end of the pre-Covid era, and on April 4, 2020, went for a walk on the Rims where Zach asked Amanda to be his girlfriend (and to please share her toilet paper). They bonded over a mutual love for dogs, camping, laughter, and endless house projects.
Over the past year and a half, Zach and Amanda have shared many experiences together from countless trips to Minneapolis, MN and Scobey, MT to camping in the beautiful Big Sky state. Zach has supported Amanda through the completion of her doctoral program and board exam, and Amanda has shared the labor (of love) in Zach’s home renovations. The two are now looking forward to spending more time chasing passions and traveling to new places.
On September 7, 2021, Zach took Amanda back to the Rims where he proposed in (almost) the same spot he first asked her to officially date. What a surprise that was! Zach and Amanda are incredibly excited to begin this chapter of their journey with their four dogs and family!
Most importantly, a special shoutout to all the incredible vendors that made this day possible!
