I was so excited to be able to photograph Kelsey and Andrew’s awesome wedding! I first met Kelsey when she was the maid of honor at her sister’s wedding pretty near the start of my photo career. Of course it was awesome to be able to see so many people I remembered from that day.
They chose to have their wedding at the fantastic Commellini Estate, a private and incredibly unique wedding venue that has a rich history dating back to prohibition. I still have yet to be there to photograph a wedding on a good weather day so I don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface of what the property has to offer from a photography standpoint, but I don’t even feel like that matters, because what I have been able to photograph there is just perfect!
Now, on to the smiles, laughter, family, friends, tears, dancing, partying, and photos!
Pumped to share photos from Krystal & Taylor’s outdoor winter wedding at Elkins Resort on Priest Lake! Unique people make for unique weddings. And I’d say that anyone who wants a wedding outdoor in northern Idaho’s (almost) permafrost is, by definition, unique! The good news is that people who are willing to brave the wintry elements, are in for a treat when it comes to wedding photos!
They also had the smart idea of tweaking traditional wedding clothing so Krystal could bundle up in her red riding hood shawl and Taylor stayed plenty warm in his traditional Kaiser era-inspired German formal wear. Thankfully the cold lake breeze stayed away until after the ceremony was over because it felt like that dropped the temperature 20 degrees!
One thing the couple really wanted was a great winter portrait with the massive full moon in the background. Thankfully the clouds stayed away long enough to get that done!
Krystal & Taylor asked me to keep their ceremony photos private so I just get to post more portraits! :)
