I’ve known Matt and Arwen for about 4 years now. My husband and Matt first met each other while my husband was shopping the beer isle in the Boise Co-Op. My husband is a beer connoisseur/collector/beer geek and Matt is the Boise Co-Op “beer guy”. Over the years, our relationship with Matt and his better half, Arwen, has moved beyond the Co-Op sales floor and into our social lives. My husband and I now consider the happy couple our friends.
Last fall Matt finally popped the “big question”. Arwen said yes and wedding planning soon followed. The search for a venue and wedding vendors was on. In the end, they chose the beautiful grounds of Sawtooth Winery
as the backdrop for their festivities. It fit in perfectly with their goal to incorporate local products into their wedding and to promote sustainability at the same time. Basically they were envisioning a farm to table event. With this in mind, every detail of the wedding day was taken into account. This theme carried through in every detail from the winery, floral arrangements, cake and food and of course hiring me to take their wedding photos.
All in all the wedding ceremony and reception was gorgeous! Matt and his groomsmen were quite dashing; the bridesmaids were beautiful; but best of all…at the end of the day, everyone had a great time!

I love these next two photos!
Kurt, Lori, family and friends gathered at Bogus Basin’s Pioneer Lodge on Saturday August 13th. The location was fitting since Kurt and Lori first met while working in the Stanley area and both enjoy the outdoors.
The couple included their love of the outdoors into the wedding decor. Hollowed out logs and twigs from the Stanley basin were made into elegant table decorations and the grooms cake was literally shaped and decorated into a realistic sock eye salmon. Firecracker and chocolate brown were the chosen colors of the day.
Thanks Kurt and Lori for inviting me to be a part of your special day!
While browsing through a wedding planning blog I came across what I think is a fabulous idea for couples. Why not ask your guests for advice on what to do for date night. You’ll get a lot of different ideas and plus you can pull the book out and look for inspiration any time you feel like you’re in a rut.

Elizabeth and Thomas exchanged wedding vows on August 6th at one of Boise’s many historic landmarks, The Boise Train Depot. An intimate gathering of family and friends assembled to witness the ceremony and celebrate in the joy of the occasion.
Thanks guys for allowing me to be a special part of your day. It was an absolute pleasure to watch you join families and begin your lives together!

I met Dana a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid for one of her dearest friends, Belinda.
Fast forward two years and now Dana’s big day has finally arrived.
Dana and Joe chose the historical Boise Train Depot for both the wedding and reception site. Many Boise residents are quite familiar with this landmark but not all have had the opportunity to enter the doors and witness the grandeur of the amazing space. Large arched windows and doorways adorn the north and south sides of the building allowing light to enter freely and abundantly. The ceiling is supported by large wood beams, intricately painted with art deco details. Original oak benches are scattered throughout the perimeter of the space truly allowing a person to “sit for a spell” and take a look back in time.
Thanks so much Dana and Joe for inviting me to be a part of your special day. Congrats and best wishes!
