We first met Laura with her mom at the Wedding Party Show back in January of 2016. To say that we instantly clicked with her is understatement, I am not sure what it is but we connected right from the start and we knew that we just HAD to shoot their wedding. And thankfully for us they felt the same way!
Over that year we would get to grow closer to Laura & Cody while shooting their engagement session and making all the final preparations for the wedding day. And honestly when that day rolled around it felt like we were shooting the wedding of some of our closest friends!
Everything about their day was absolutely perfect, and I can say without a doubt that their wedding has been one of our all time favorites.
Cody + Laura had a beautiful late October wedding, and for those of you familiar with Idaho weather. Late October can either be perfect or be covered in snow depending on the year. Thankfully for us, we got a stunning day full of warm weather and the most beautiful fall colors!
We started the day at Waters Edge Event Center prepping with this darling couple. The bride surrounded by her closest friends and the groom with his brothers and buddies. We were able to witness one of the sweetest first looks I have ever seen and then hung out with their wedding party capturing their friendships. Don't you just love those bridesmaids dresses! AH! I was dying over those colors!
We then headed to the Cathedral of the Rockies for their ceremony. If you haven't had a chance to check out this church you need to! Its stunning! Talk about the perfect spot for a wedding ceremony! They exchanged vows, had a quiet candle lighting ceremony, and then exited the church with all of their guests letting go of balloons. It was SO COOL!
While their guests headed back to the reception, we stuck around at the church for a few more minutes to shoot some more bride & groom portraits, and we got SO lucky! The most incredible sunlight peeked out during our time at the church and left us with some of my all time favorite sunset images from a wedding day! I mean just look at them and you will know what I mean!
We ended the night back at Waters Edge Event Center, and it was complete with donut bar and epic dancing!
Congratulations again to our beautiful friends who we just absolutely adore! This wedding was perfect and I wish we could go back and do it over and over and over again! xo- Carli + Beau
