At the beginning of July, I had the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Jared and Whitney. They all got ready at a vacation rental in Kellogg, ID and then had their wedding in their own back yard, tucked away in the small town of Osburn, Idaho. This wasn’t just your regular back yard though. It was surrounded by mountains and a field of daisy’s. No matter which direction you looked, the view was amazing. We were able to do all of the portraits right there, because leaving to find a better location wasn’t necessary. I loved the feel of this wedding. It was very laid back, but full of amazing details. The style was rustic boho and full of charm. The bride opted for a less traditional dress, which I feel totally matched her personality and the over all style and feel of the wedding. The couple planted a tree during the ceremony to symbolize their union and love for one another.
The bridal party was made up of the best of friends as well as many family members. A lot of love was put into this wedding. Jared and his father hand made the tables, and then Jared also made the teepee and the shed that was used for the desserts. The boxes holding all of the succulent center pieces were also handmade by them.
I loved being a part of this wedding. I truly felt more like a guest. All of bridal party and the families of the bride and groom made me feel so welcome. There were many touching moments at this wedding as well.. such as Jared saying vows to not only Whitney, but to their daughter Fynnlee as well. He also had a first dance with her, which did ultimately end up a whole family dance with Whitney and their son Forest too. Whitney and Jared were so in the moment and relaxed, so when it came time for portraits everything was just so natural.
Whitney and Jared,
Thank you so much for having me photograph this special day for the two of you. The wedding was absolutely perfect and I enjoyed getting to know your family. The day was filled with love, joy, laughter, and such special moments that I will always remember. Please tell Evan I posted these photos on Facebook, I promised him I would.
