Hey there, beautiful souls! It’s Anita, your storyteller and elopement photographer based in Spokane, Washington. Today, I’m thrilled to take you on a magical journey, sharing the heartwarming love story of Darci and Josh. This sweet couple decided to embark on their lifelong adventure with a dreamy forest wedding in Elk River, Idaho. I had the immense privilege of being their photographer.
The Chosen Sanctuary:
For Darci, Elk River’s cedar grove held a treasure trove of memories—it was the backdrop of their love story. Picture towering cedar trees,a chill in the air, and the pure embrace of nature as the setting for their fairy-tale wedding. It was a sanctuary that spoke to their hearts.
The All-Inclusive Forest Wedding Package:
Darci and Josh opted for an all-inclusive forest wedding package, curated by FlyTheCoop. This meant their day was meticulously planned, allowing them to savor every moment without a hint of stress. The result? An utterly magical and stress-free celebration of their love.
Meet Teri, the Official Officiant, and Yours Truly, the Photographer:
At the heart of the ceremony was Teri from FlyTheCoop, their wonderful officiant. With grace and warmth, Teri guided them through their vows. And as their dedicated photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing every moment of Darci and Josh’s love story—the stolen glances, the smiles, and the sweet kisses.
Furry Companions, Bow Ties, and Huckleberry Milkshakes:
Darci and Josh’s love story had a unique starting point—they met at the Elk River General Store, sharing huckleberry milkshakes for the first time. Naturally, their furry companions donned adorable bow ties for the occasion, and the huckleberry theme carried through to their wedding cake, creating a delightful thread connecting their journey.
Sweetheart Cake and Floral Elegance:
Now, let’s talk about those delightful touches! The all-inclusive package included a beautiful sweetheart cake adorned with intricate details. But here’s the kicker—the flavor? Huckleberry! It was a sweet nod to the place where their love story began.
As the ceremony unfolded amidst the cedar trees, my lens captured the love, joy, and intimacy of Darci and Josh’s forest wedding. Nature’s beauty blended seamlessly with their heartfelt vows, creating a visual narrative that will be cherished for generations to come.
