Boise weddings are so fun! I was going to highlight a vendor for this post but there were so many amazing creatives that came together for this gorgeous styled shoot so I had to write about more than one! The inspiration for this shoot consisted of dusty blues and blushes with elegance and charm. I think we pulled it off exceptionally 😉

Let’s start with location

We loved the quaint charm of Treasure Valley’s own Still Water Hollow. Tucked away in the farmlands of Nampa is the cutest place with so much to offer! Famous for it’s Little White Chapel, Still Water Hollow features a luscious rock fountain in a sparkling pond, and in the distance you can see a little gazebo. A white bridge takes you above the water to enjoy reflection and beauty.

The rustic barn is everything contemporary. It’s high ceilings make the perfect ballroom or reception area! Not to mention the groom and bridal suite just up the stairs. Just around the corner is a beautiful grassed area that’s perfect for outdoor socializing, reception, dancing, etc!

The landscaping is gorgeous, the lights hung give it a magic touch, you’ll love having your wedding here. Not to mention the staff is IN-CRED-IBLE. We love Brianne and her cute family, you really can’t go wrong here, TRUST me! Visit their website here.

Hair and makeup

For this lovely shoot we brought on the insanely talented SH + makeup crew! We seriously love working with Shawna Hines, I always know the brides are going to look stunning when she’s a part of it! Her girl, Kimberly, did an excellent job on the hair and makeup and brought it all together. They’re so good to work with, really listen to what you want done and then make. Magic. happen. Again, you won’t regret it! See more of their work on their website here.

The dress. The tux.

Ahhhh it’s no secret we love Laneige Bridal’s gowns. Their in-house designer is so talented I swoon every time! I walked into their store and I had a dream dress in my head and it was literally on the mannequin in the window! I told the awesome hostess there –that. That is the one–pointing to the dress. I feel like you can have anything you want there and they go out of their way to make you feel incredible. And I wasn’t even the bride! But look at that gorgeous dress! See their selection here.

The Styling.

Okay every gorgeously vintage-elegant piece of furniture and art here comes from the amazing Rustiqe Rentals. Jenny is seriously the best, and I love working with her! She brought so much to the table (literally and figuratively), designing the tables cape, staging the furniture in both the bridal suite and outside! She prides herself in offering the best high-quality, authentic products for brides to choose from to make their wedding Pinterest perfect! (or picture perfect, whatever you prefer). Check out her inventory and get in touch with her here.

Those Florals.

They were brought to us by the sweetest, Paige at Wildflower. She is so talented and meticulous at what she does she always creates amazing work! She puts so much thought and time into creating floral masterpieces, you really can’t go wrong working with her. Go see her at her store in downtown Boise, it is so lovely! I love the feeling of relaxing paradise I get when I walk through those doors. See her work here.

That Cake.

It’s no secret we love working with Emily at Flour Child. She has SERIOUS talent. All of her work is incredible and she doesn’t use fondant (mind = blown). So everything actually tastes Uh-MAZE-ING. I absolutely love the way her mind processes things to create these delicious masterpieces. This macarons? They were to die for. After the shoot we ate every. last. one. With zero regrets.
