A couple of college sweethearts host a wedding celebration with plenty of DIY spirit amid the rustic wilderness of Montana's Rivers Edge Ranch.

Meghan Righetti and David Nesher met seven years ago as undergrads at the University of Montana, so their wedding—on August 4, 2012 at the Rivers Edge Ranch in Whitefish, Montana—was a homecoming for the college sweethearts. But it was also a chance to celebrate with their family and 18-month-old son, Julien, among the rustic beauty of the surrounding landscape.

"It's a majestic place surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lakes—the perfect backdrop for a wedding," said Meghan. "We wanted our friends and family to experience it with us."
