Mike and Ashley Coeur d’Alene Resort Wedding

This stunning sunday wedding at the Hagadone Event Center was perfection! The flowers by Caravan Floral were simply amazing!! And the whole bridal party was fun,  gorgeous and amazing to work with! After the first dance and cake cutting, we were able to sneak away for a few minutes to walk the beach and even got to go out on the legendary floating green for a few pics.  As always a big thank you to my second shooter Jenice Baker!

Beautiful inside and out!! Alises’ mother and family did so many gorgeous DIY touches, this wedding was pinterest heaven;) Congratulations Jared and Alise, I am so excited for you guys! Amazing live band, Miah Kohal Band, and other fantastics vendors include: Makeup by Evelyn, Hair by Nicole Douglas, Stacie’s Cakes, Spring Creek Catering, and a big thank you to my amazing second shooter, Jenice Baker!

Adam and Raelynn

I was so impressed with Adam and Raelynn from the moment I met them. Though they are still so young, they are both full of grace and maturity.  High- school sweet hearts these two are! I could not have been more thrilled to have been a part of the beautiful wedding! And it was at one of my favorite Venues: Quail Run Ranch! It was a beautiful July day for their outdoor celebration. Congratulations Adam and Raelynn!! A big thank you to my amazing assistant Jenice Baker for second shooting!
