JAKE & JODEE

JULY 15, 2017

Jake and I met in High School in 2010 at Helena High in American History class. With having class together we became good friends and then that summer of 2010 Jake took me to an Eric Church concert (who is one of my favorite music artists) where he asked me to be his girlfriend. In 2011 after graduating high school, I moved to Dillon, MT to attend college at the University of Montana Western pursuing a degree in Business. Jake attended the Helena College of Technology getting a degree in Welding. In May of 2016, I graduated college with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and a minor in Web and Digital Media. Just one week after my graduation, May 13th, 2016 (Friday the 13th which already makes it a suspicious day) Jake and I were up in the mountains horn hunting when I found what I thought was "just" a six-point bull elk antler but little did I know on the other side of that antler Jake had carved "will you marry me" into it.

As I looked at the antler, Jake standing behind me got down on one knee and as I turned around he asked me to marry him. The ring that he placed on my finger is very special to me because the diamond that is in the ring was a diamond my grandpa had given my grandma and then my grandma gave to Jake to have put into the band that he gave to me. To celebrate, Jake and I went to Missoula and went to dinner and then to Nitro Circus Live, which was a blast! Then in April we did a pre honeymoon going to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a week with some of our close friends which was amazing! When we got back from vacation it was all planning from there and just like that our wedding day was here! July 15th, 2017 was truly the best day EVER, it was like a dream come true. Surrounded by hundreds of friends and family Jake and I got to celebrate our new beginning of becoming Mr. & Mrs. Prevel. We could not have done it without our amazing friends, families and awesome vendors including Linda's Bridal images & Mr. Tux.

It was so easy and went so smooth working with Linda and her team. We got all of our attire from her shop including a beautiful wedding dress, amazing bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen and ring bearer attire, and mother of the brides dress. Also, a huge thank you to West Mont for the beautiful assortment of hand crafted floral arrangements and to King Photography for capturing our perfect day and giving us the best memories.
