Wedding days are always filled with such joy, but I find this especially true when photographing an elopement. In most cases, the number of people in attendance is very few and the couple is just so excited about their special day.
Alaska to Boise
This couple flew into Boise from Alaska just to exchange their wedding vows in front of a very select group of family and friends. Including the couple, there were only 11 people in attendance… myself included.
They met in Alaska, but neither had family there. Plus… they wanted to go someplace a bit warmer. So, they opted for Boise. A place where some family members now live.
Vows were exchanged in Marianne Williams Park in east Boise. It was a sunny but windy day. The groom’s father officiated the ceremony while family and friends witnessed the event.
The vows were short and sweet, but not lacking in heartfelt statements of devotion.
After The Ceremony
Immediately following the elopement ceremony the couple and I started with a stroll through the park to capture images. We then moved onto downtown Boise, taking photos in both the Julia Davis Rose Garden and the Idaho State Capitol area.
Congratulations Jessica & Jonathan!
