Jim and Elizabeth are married! This lovely couple and their guests came from all over the country to enjoy a special destination wedding at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, and I was the lucky photographer who was on hand to capture their wedding photos. Michigan, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Idaho were just a few of the many states that were represented as they said their vows overlooking beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene at the Hagadone Event Center.
We’ve had a very smokey summer here in the Inland Northwest with so many wildfires burning throughout Washington, Idaho, and Montana, but the smoke-filled haze lifted on this particular Saturday, and we were all treated to a gorgeous day full of happiness and celebration–and this wedding was a celebration, indeed! With such an intimate gathering, there was plenty of room on the dance floor for the whole group to join in, and at one point, even Grandma took her turn in the dance circle!
I had a great time getting to know this couple and their wedding party throughout the day, and even had the chance to photograph some of them while Jim and Elizabeth were busy greeting their guests. I love when a bride and groom allot time for guest portraits in their photography timeline. With everyone looking so dapper and feeling so great, it’s the perfect opportunity to capture the spirit of the day in the people they hold dearest to their hearts.
Thanks to Jim and Elizabeth for the beautiful day, and so many congratulations to the happy couple!
Thanks, also, to the team of wedding vendors who made Jim and Elizabeth’s day fabulous!
