winter wedding in sun valley idaho

There is a type of person in our world, a type I hope all of you have met and whose numbers increase exponentially–the incredibly nice person. He or she is easy to be around, curious to know what’s going on in your life, compassionate, kind, not irritating or overbearing, just incredibly nice! The marriage of Grayson and Dewey brought together two of this variety of people. Needless to say, photographing for them was as lovely as photographing a wedding gets. Their winter wedding here in Sun Valley was blessed with an amazing sunny day which has been a rarity this year due to record amounts of snow; gray days both preceded and followed their big day! Congratulations Grayson and Dewey! We all are so happy for you both.

McCall Idaho Wedding Photography

Allie and Nate were married in McCall, Idaho, at the beautiful lakeside Hotel McCall. Allie was able to get ready at her mother’s home just south of town and the location worked well for a few portraits. Their July wedding day proved to be as amazing as Idaho can get–perfect temps with blue-bird skies which allowed their ceremony and reception party to be held on the outside patio.

Elkhorn at Sun Valley Winter Wedding

Sun Valley is an amazing venue for winter weddings. This February, Val and Bryce took advantage of this little known fact and brought a triple digit crew to the Elkhorn restaurant for their ceremony and reception. Though Old Man Winter kept his effects a bit further to the north this year, a quick drive into the Sawtooth National Recreation Area gave this outdoor couple the backdrops they were after. Fresh snow blessed their ceremony, their vows were amazing, readings by the wedding party were heartfelt, and the party was off the hook! Congrats Val and Bryce!

Winter Wedding at Sun Valley's Clubhouse

Kim and Dan were married at Sun Valley’s Clubhouse this February with their close family and friends in attendance. The Clubhouse transforms wonderfully into a wedding venue for winter weddings. Time was scheduled for us to head out and about for portraits and I was happy that this great couple wanted to photograph in Sun Valley’s village after the sun had set. Many congratulations to Kim and Dan!

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!

Redfish Lake wedding near Stanley, Idaho.

Patrick and Kate were married on the east slope of the Sawtooth Mountains in the small town of Stanley, Idaho. The mountains that defined their ceremony’s backdrop and the waters that flow from them are both intimate to these two mountain people-as Patrick works as a ski guide and Kate was a professional whitewater rafting guide, now a school teacher.
I’ve been out in the backcountry skiing with Patrick and Kate works at the elementary school across the street from my house. Both are amazing people with big hearts, an amazing level of patience, and zest for adventure. Their wedding day reflected these traits, it was easy going, full of love, and lots of fun!
