in the photography world, there’s a lot of emphasis placed on finding “your ideal client” and shooting “your ideal weddings.” and you know what? i think we’ve been finding it this year, left and right! natural, floral-filled weddings with kind, down-to-earth clients whose joy escapes from every corner of their faces.
and this bishop’s house boise wedding was no exception! spenser and ann are the sweetest of couples and have such a special love; i don’t know if i’ve ever seen a groom’s reaction to a first look quite as precious as spenser’s when he saw ann for the first time in her wedding dress! their devotion to one another is so evident, and the love from their friends and families that was present on their wedding day was nearly palpable. the day was laid-back and filled with perfect weather, laughter, and the happiest of tears. we loved exploring the historic charm of the bishop’s house and took advantage of the nearby boise botanical gardens for portraits.
and the color pallet and details for the day were absolutely perfect! we loved the pops of color, fresh-picked poppies in ann’s bouquet, and the petal-covered aisle. and allll of the personal touches that were personal to the bride– including hundreds of hand-made origami cranes made by ann herself, darling gold animals at every place setting, and fun questionnaires for the guests to fill out as they waited for dinner. i can’t say enough about the beautiful floral arrangements at every table, either, or the overall charm that was so finely executed by bliss events.
we have some personal ties to the couple, which made this day even better for us! what’s better than seeing your wonderful cousin get married and dancing the night away while filming/photographing the whole thing? absolutely nothing.
ann + spenser, we love you. we couldn’t have been more honored to have the chance to fly to idaho and spend your wedding day with you. we are inspired by your love and devotion to one another! we appreciate your kindness and are so grateful for you!
look out, their wedding film will be hitting the blog next!
