I recently had the pleasure of photographing the nuptials of Dianna & Kodjo. Both are immigrants from Africa but met here in Boise. I guess it is true when some say; you never know where in the world you will find love. These two certainly traveled a long way to find each other and they couldn’t be more perfect for each other.
Last minutes hugs and well wishes from Mom.
The two getting ready to drive over to the Bishop’s House for their reception.
It was such a gorgeous day outside!
We were all so happy to see blue sky’s and be blessed with warm spring weather. We could not have asked for a better day.
The bridal party was led into the reception by a group of dancers. I’m told this is a Rwandan tradition and this dance in particular is traditionally performed at the beginning of wedding receptions.
The recent gorgeous weather combined with the things I’m finding in my yard are just making me positively giddy. I love to work in my yard and soon will be getting the chance to get my hands dirty and get some new plants in the ground.
When my husband and I bought our home 5 years ago we had a house and a yard overtaken by weeds, dead trees and shrubs and an occasional clump of grass. We had our work cut out for us not only outside but inside the house as well. 5 years later and and we have made significant progress and I have a backyard that still needs some work but now provides us with joy all spring, summer and fall.
Here are a few pictures of flowers I found in my yard this morning.
One of my favorite spring flowers. When they are in full bloom the smell is intoxicating and the flower is to die for.
