Jace and Stela’s Nampa Idaho Wedding. They contacted me almost a year before their wedding. They had me laughing from the start. Their personalities complement each other so nicely. We did their engagement shoot at Bogus Basin right after the first snow! They brought their pup Honey along! I had such a fun time hanging out with these three that I knew that their wedding would be a blast! Steal is my kind of girl! Totally scaling a mountain side to get the perfect photo. You can find their engagement shoot HERE!
One thing I love about the weddings that I shoot is that they are not just my clients, by the end of the process I feel like we are friends. From the emails, to in person meetings I just love it all. I am actually a little sad when the wedding day is over and all the images are delivered! Hint Hint Stela! I want to grab dinner sometime! Stela’s attention to detail did not go unnoticed. She had thought about everything and the timeline flowed beautifully! Even the last minute Airbnb canceled on her, she was on top it! She had another one booked for them to get ready at in no time.
The gals got ready at a beautiful home in Meridian Idaho. It was so fun to have them in one place. They have all been friends for a long time. At one point they even lived together during their college years. It is always amazing to see a tribe of gals rally together to make the day perfect for the bride. Stela added a fun extra wedding day detail. Each gal had matching robes! So fun and it just adds so much to their photos. Once I was finished with the gals I headed to the venue to catch the guys.
When I pulled up I could believe how beautifully Stela’s vision came to life. I had been out there just a couple weeks prior. So much had changed and it was beautifully decorated. The guys were a HOOT, to say the least. Their interactions with each other had me trying to keep a straight face while photographing them. My face literally hurt from laughing so hard.
The first look was sure special. Jace’s reaction to his beautiful bride had my eyes watering just a tad.
The love he has for her radiated from him and the reaction was clear! She was the most beautiful bride, and even better his bride. The amount of happiness that radiated from the two of them was incredible.
Their ceremony was beautiful and the vow’s that Jace had wrote for Stela made me think his calling in life is to be a writer. I was so impressed by both of their vows and how it portrayed their love story past, present and future. The promises they made to each other things that were said were straight from their hearts.
The rest of the night was full of laughs with sentimental toasts and beautiful first dances. I was able to steal them away for some dreamy golden hour glow. My favorite shots of the night. That end of summer glow is just amazing. Then back to the dancing late into the night.
Every part of their day was full of laughter and fun. I am so glad I got to be a part of such a special day for wonderful souls! Congratulations Stela and Jace I wish you many years of happiness and hopefully a new kitten in there somewhere. Jace and Stela’s Nampa Idaho Wedding is one for the books! Beautiful, emotional and fun!
