It’s pretty hard to plan a wedding in Boise, Idaho. There are only a handful of good indoor venues and you just never know what the weather is going to do. The joke is that if you don’t like the weather in Boise…. just wait 5 minutes. March in Boise however, is a little more predictable… it is probably going to rain. Cara and Bryan were totally fine with this reality and accommodated by choosing the Adelmann as their venue where their guests could be sheltered in the wet month of March. This is why I was so pleasantly surprised with what we got to work with- seriously the most beautiful day I have ever seen in my 26 years of living in Boise. It reminded me of the days I spent in Southern California. The perfect point between warm and hot, a slight breeze, cloudy skies and of course the most amazing bride, groom and group of people to work with. I don’t think anything about Cara and Bryan’s wedding could have been more perfect. These two are so hilarious and we love them to death! The day flew by and we had plenty of time to get lots of great photos. Every moment was full of emotion from laughter to tears (sorry Bryan!) and a ton of fun dancing and playing in the photobooth!

I definitely can’t get out of talking about how absolutely stuh-uhninng Cara was. We were so spoiled with her crazy gorgeousness! And, as you look on you will see Cara’s ‘sparkling’ personality ‘shine’ through in pretty much everything! This girly girl loves a few things other than Bryan and that would be stilettos, bling and jeeps (Well the jeeps are a mutual love, I am sure Bryan will learn to love the other two eventually). The minute I saw Cara’s shoes I knew that they were made for her- but I knew that I was going to have them tracking through downtown Boise for an hour of photographs- gosh we are evil aren’t we!? Everything from the chair decorations to the little mini chandeliers in the centerpieces by Bliss were sparkling. We love how a person can come through so much in tiny wedding details!
