A wedding ceremony at Our Lady of the Snows in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Jessie and Andy were married in the beautiful Our Lady of the Snows Catholic church in Sun Valley, Idaho, with their reception at River Run Lodge that was all smiles and good times. The toasts and roasts that were given to the couple revealed two incredibly smart and talented people with a whole lot of love for each other, their family, and friends. Their party kept going until a rose petal getaway sent Jessie and Andy off on their honeymoon!

A wedding photo taken during the Beaver Creek Fire near Sun Valley, Idaho

Any more, nothing says “Idaho” like fly fishing and fire fighting. Both themes were on display at Oliver and Becca’s wedding a few weeks back at Sun Valley’s fabled Trail Creek Cabin. Oliver’s love of fly fishing set the theme for their wedding, however, the fact that he is a fire fighter and that the Beaver Creek fire had started only three days prior to their wedding added an ironic touch! Oliver snuck out with his friends early in the morning on his wedding day to fish the Big Wood river. Luckily, he landed a 3″ trout, narrowly avoiding being skunked. But, even if he’d have walked away without a fish on his line, he had a bigger catch set for later that afternoon! The smoke stayed to the north and made the colors in the sky a eerily beautiful sight. Their celebration was perfect and the party a blast. Many congratulations Becca and Oliver!

Sun Valley Idaho Wedding Photograph

Lauren and Marshall’s destination wedding here in Sun Valley was one of the first of the summer season and it brought in the gorgeous weather this area is known for. A great ceremony was followed by a fun reception. Lauren’s brother killed it with his speech and had the crowd laughing hard! Uncles sang and danced like Mic Jagger, mom’s cried and recovered well during toasts, it was a great celebration.

Heli-Ski wedding photographed in Idaho by Craig Wolfrom

This morning, Laura and Drew were married and signed for their lives in a way most people don’t think of doing–at least on their wedding day. These two signed a release form stating that their wedding ceremony might cause bodily harm, or, perhaps even kill them! You see, Laura and Drew went Heli-Skiing for their wedding! After an introduction to helicopter and avalanche safety, we were flying deep into the Smoky Mountains for both their ceremony and the backcountry ski runs that followed.

Up on a 10,000 foot mountain in the middle of Idaho, Drew’s brother married this firefighter and paramedic. It was a beautiful and windless Sun Valley day. The ceremony was emotional and none of the birds or other small creatures objected to their marriage! Sun Valley Heli Ski and their pilot were incredibly accommodating to the request for a portrait with the helicopter in the air which happened just after their “I do’s.” Once the ship was gone, the group skied off the peak and spent the rest of the day heli-skiing! Congrats to Laura and Drew–such an amazing and memorable wedding!

On a perfect Fall day a few weeks back, Stephanie and Matt were married in the Elkhorn Village of Sun Valley, Idaho. Their wedding day was as they should be, full of good friends and family coming together to celebrate with big smiles from start to finish. Some of the details that made the event a testament to Stephanie and Matt’s laid back, fun loving, attitude were: flip flops for the groomsmen, shot-skis, and pizza for dinner! Congratulations Steph and Matt!

Sun Valley River Run Lodge wedding photograph.

Toward the end of August, Julie and Ryan were married at the base of Mt. Baldy in front of Sun Valley’s River Run Lodge. The pure emotions only realized when in the company of great friends and relatives were out and evident by the smiles and tears on everyone’s faces. It was a perfect wedding day. Julie and Ryan worked with Taylor Sturges who coordinated their day exquisitely. Congratulations!

Photograph from a wedding in Warm Springs Canyon, Idaho.

For years, my family and I have been driving out scenic Warm Springs Canyon for soaks in the crystal clear Frenchman’s Hot Spring. The last few hundred yards of the drive pass through an old community of cabins that could easily be the set for a Hollywood movie. However, one property in particular, Croney Cove, hides behind thick willow which only allows hints at what lies beyond.

Holly and Mike were married beyond the willow in quintessential mountain river backdrop that is Croney Cove. Holly began her wedding day with a soak in the private hot springs located on the property, moved into one of the rustic cabins with decorations straight out of a Restoration Hardwear catalog for her preparations, and met Mike after walking down the riverside aisle at her ceremony.

Heather Minor coordinated their fantastic day with Nathan Hudson mixing tunes that kept the party on the dance floor until the last bus shuttled their remaining guests into Ketchum for the afterparty.

Mike, you wore down the dance floor! Holly, you were a beautiful and gracious bride! Congratulations to you both.

A wedding photograph from Sun Valley, Round House or River Run venues.

This past Sunday, Andy and Betsy were married half way up Sun Valley Resort’s Mt. Baldy ski hill at the foot of the Round House. Dramatic weather blew, at times fiercely, through their ceremony leaving beautiful light and colors throughout the alpine landscape that was their backdrop. Guests were then treated to a reception down at River Run lodge with music energetically performed by Boise’s colorful High Street Band. Congratulations Betsy and Andy!

Wedding Photographs from Sun Valley's River Run Lodge, Idaho.

One of the crazy aspects of working as a photographer is how we often times jump into events and ask those around us their trust with capturing their image. This is especially true for wedding gigs as we get right into a highly emotional day often times only knowing our clients for a few hours prior. A week and a half ago, I photographed for Brad and Kat here in Sun Valley and prior to their wedding day, had only spent an hour with them at Grumpy’s getting their final schedule and details organized. As with most couples the last few weeks before their wedding, there was a hint of stress at our initial meeting. However, these two were all smiles and full of happiness on their wedding day. They, and their guests, were such fun to be around; easy going, sincere, and ready for a party. Their exuberance was contagious and their family and friends followed their lead throughout the day and into the night. Congrats Brad and Kat! I hope your honeymoon time on the Pacific was off the charts!
