Dustin & Heidi’s Wedding, Bonners Ferry, Idaho

I was sooo excited when Dustin and Heidi contacted me about coming to Idaho and photographing their wedding day!! This couple is extra special to me because Dustin is my youngest cousin and I could have never dreamed that one day I’d have the privilege and honor of capturing the memories of his wedding day!! Also, after Dustin and Heidi started dating, the dots were connected that Heidi and I are also related on my dad’s side!! πŸ˜‰ So that was a fun discovery and also so fun to meet more relatives I didn’t know existed!! πŸ˜‰

Dustin and Heidi met at Bible School one year and both went back again the next year. I’m not sure exactly when the attraction between the two started but they were for sure into each other by the end of that last term of Bible School! πŸ˜‰ Heidi said she’d never date a guy from Bible School but Dustin changed her mind pretty quickly!! πŸ™‚ They’re perfect together and it warmed my heart to see Dustin all grown up and manly on his wedding day and caring for Heidi with such love and tenderness. I have no doubts he’ll take wonderful care of her!! πŸ™‚

I had never been to Idaho before so I was super excited to visit and see all the stunning landscape and locations they chose for the photos! My second shooter Sharita and I seriously drove around all weekend with our jaws dropping. The snow peeked mountains and tall pines EVERYwhere made for absolute beauty! We started off the wedding morning at Heidi’s place for the first look and then drove to the top of a mountain with a stunning overlook for their portraits!! We were in photographer heaven! πŸ˜‰ Dustin and Heidi are sooo much fun and Heidi’s laugh is the BEST!! πŸ˜‰ It was so special having lots of family at the wedding and also getting to see my parents!!! πŸ™‚ I loved meeting Heidi’s family as well and her mom had everything organized to the T! And also is so much fun and we shared a lot of laughs!! πŸ˜‰

Heidi’s bridesmaids dresses were so pretty with the beautiful bouquets they all held!! Β Her colors of dusty rose, burgundy and olive green were gorgeous together and especially in the setting of pines and mountains!! Dustin and Heidi, you had an absolutely beautiful day and it was such an honor to be there and celebrate you to!! Thank you so much for allowing to capture these memories to last a lifetime!!

Love you guys, Kari
