Jami & Tanor’s wedding at Rockin TJ Ranch in Bozeman was everything I dreamed it would be – classic, romantic, and a whole lot of fun! These two just couldn’t wait to say “I do,” and as soon as they saw each other, all their nerves melted away! I am so honored that I got to capture this special time in their lives!
Rockin TJ Ranch – Bozeman Wedding
Jami & Tanor’s Story
Jami and Tanor met the modern way, by swiping right. Tanor was living in Seattle when Jami moved there for a travel nurse assignment. They spent their first date in typical Seattle fashion at Pike Place Market and enjoyed their first beers together at Kell’s Irish Pub. They hit it off and quickly realized they had many things in common. One of those things was a love for Montana. Jami grew up in Billings and Tanor loved spending time at his grandparent’s cabin in the North Fork.
Knowing Jami was only planning to be in Seattle for three months on her Seattle travel assignment, Tanor didn’t waste any time trying to impress her and off they went on a second date to a Mariners game. They shared many more fun dates together and grew a strong connection in just a short amount of time. When it was time for Jami to take her next three month assignment in Arizona, they both knew they had to keep seeing each other.
Happily Ever After
Jami & Tanor decided to stay together and Jami moved back to Seattle in March 2020. After 6 months of dating during the COVID pandemic, she moved in with Tanor. Shortly after, they got their dog Maci in time for the holidays.
It didn’t take long for Tanor to realize he had it all with Jami and Maci. They got engaged the following Fall while walking along the beach at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. Maci was just as excited as they were and almost pulled Jami into the water that day. With their mutual lover for Montana, they knew that was where they were meant to be married and chose beautiful Bozeman as the perfect destination for their wedding.
