This are is very lucky because we have so many amazing wedding venues, but it’s always a little more special when a couple gets to have their wedding on a property that they’ve had for generations and have held closely in their heart throughout their lives. This was the case with Courtney & Alex’s wedding which was held at Courtney’s family cabin on Priest Lake. A place that has been a treasured part of Courtney’s family’s memories added a new memory when family and some close friends from all over the country gathered in northern Idaho to spend time celebrating the couple.
The day itself could not have been more beautiful. Just days before the wedding I made the trip to the cabin to take a few photos and see the property and it was HOT—like, you don’t want to stand outside for more than a few minutes, hot. The wedding day, however, was unbelievably pleasant. Which just added to the beautiful scenery, wonderful feelings, and amazing people that were there for the day. See for yourself!
One of my favorite things is when I get to photograph the wedding of a family member of a previous couple I’ve photographed! I feel so fortunate when that happens. In this case, I have previously taken pictures at the weddings of the groom’s sister and his parents. Not only is it wonderful to know that I’ve earned that trust, but I really love all of my clients and to get the chance to see them again is always a lot of fun for me!
Katie & Jeff chose Trinity Tree Farm in Issaquah, WA for their wedding and it couldn’t have been a more fantastic spot for a wedding day! Surrounded by evergreen trees sitting on rolling hills among family and friends under a warm and slightly cloudy sky is just about perfection. I don’t remember a single moment during the entire day that wasn’t pure joy for everyone.
