Friends, I am so excited to share this Coeur d’Alene wedding with you today! This was my FIRST time shooting a wedding at the Coeur d’Alene resort, and it was such an amazing experience! Not only was the setting spectacular, overlooking the lake in all its shades of blue, but the staff was so friendly and helpful, I immediately felt at ease!
As I look back on 2020, this wedding truly stands out as one of my highlights of the year! So so grateful. And honored, to have captured this gorgeous day for one of the sweetest couples on earth, Darby + Viviana. An extra thanks to Elizabeth from Sage and Scarlet Photography for helping me document this day! Scroll to see some of my favorites their day!

Blush tones and creamy whites will forever be a favorite!
Loved these sweet moments between the bride and her mama…
And dad seeing his daughter for the first time in her dress…
How sweet are the groom shoes next to his sons?!? I mean…
The groom looked extra dapper in his custom Tux from 720 Haberdahery & Tailor Shop
Just looking all handsome and some…
Love these black and whites!
Meanwhile, across the way, the girls were getting their gorgeous on!
The ultimate girl squad right here!
As fate would have it, a storm rolled in just minutes before their ceremony at the Hagadone Center, and the ceremony had to be moved inside.
The bride later shared that all their friends that had recently been married all had rain on their wedding days too, so they count it as a sign of good luck!
Here comes the bride!
The groom seeing his bride for the first time…swoon!
The couple exchanged personal vows, and I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!
Sealed with a kiss!
Timeless and every bit perfection!
Introducing for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson!
As guests enjoyed cocktails and mingling, the bride and groom snuck away for a few sunset portraits!
Viviana was literally glowing!
Adore these two!
Dancing in the clouds!
Back at the reception, guests enjoyed lawn games of jenga and cornhole!
After sunset portraits, the sweetest toasts were shared. My favorite came from Darby’s brother who thanked Viviana for being nice to him and teaching him stuff.
The night’s celebrating continued with…hold up…a DRESS change!!! That’s right, Viviana changed into her second gown from Honest in Ivory that was all sparkles, and so GORGEOUS!
The groom brought the house down with his garter dance!
Darby’s mom surprised them with THE. MOST. EPIC. fireworks show over Lake Coeur d’Alene!
End with this one because it really was the most epic night EVER!
