Come Away with Me to a Mountaintop

From the photographer, Tana PhotographyThe Norah Jones hit song, “Come Away with Me” was the inspiration for this fall styled shoot set against a mountain backdrop in McCall, Idaho. Our focus with our design concept was to enhance the natural beauty of  the landscape while using color palettes and textures that would work in fall.

The flowers were truly a work of art by Flowers At Will.  The combination of lush greens and foliage, dahlias, chocolate cosmos and roses embodied our vision for the organic, romantic look we wanted.


The dinner table was soft and romantic and included vintage touches. A lace runner was layered with another runner made of fur for a soft yet lodge-inspired feel, while gold flatware and gorgeous silk napkins tucked in metal fox rings added  a touch of elegance.

Our Moscow Mule and cigar bar was a way to personalize a traditional cocktail hour, complete with perfect cold-weather pairings and mini-eats.

The look for our bride and groom was also soft and slightly vintage; the bride wore a champagne gown with a taupe lining designed by Laneige Bridal and the groom looked dapper in his soft gray suit.

Love in the Snow

Paige & Erik  |  February 2nd  |  Nordman, Idaho

From the bride, Paige:
Getting married in the snow was magical and reminded us on how we fell in love playing in the snow while snowboarding on our first date. Having the mountain views, trees and snow as our backdrop made for amazing photo’s that we will cherish for life. Being so close to nature made the entire event extremely romantic. It literally felt like a dream!

Rosewood01My bouquet was cascading with white roses, lambs ear, eucalyptus and rosemary.

I personalized my gown with a custom made sash and wore Sorell snow boots. Rosewood02 Rosewood03


Erik wore a boutonnière charm with a picture of his father to show remembrance.

Rosewood05The bridesmaids carried beautiful clear glass candle lanterns down the aisle that created a romantic vibe in front of the fireplace, where the ceremony took place.

Eriks ring would not go on… so he pushed it on himself and I said “its’ not coming off now”, everyone laughed it was a sweet ceremony moment.

Having the “A” Team on my wedding day made the entire event smooth and stress free. It’s easy to enjoy yourself when you know you’re in good hands.

Every single one of my Vendors was absolutely amazing! I have high recommendations for all…

Country Chic at Moose Creek Ranch by Jamye Chrisman Photography

Emily & Jarrod  |  September 14th  |  Moose Creek Ranch, Idaho

From the bride, Emily:
We wanted to get married somewhere beautiful. A place where we could be married outside, hold the wedding and reception at the same place, and somewhere that could lodge our out of town guests. Moose Creek Ranch was the perfect place.

We had cornhole (a bean bag game) set up as well as plenty of outdoor sitting.

JaymeChrisman0111Jarrod and I had a surprise choreographed dance which was followed by a full fledged dance party had by all.JaymeChrisman0113

A mountain destination wedding is perfect for those who love to be outside. Getting married is the most special day a couple can have and it should be in the most beautiful place possible. I loved the whole feel of Moose Creek Ranch, especially the barn with its twinkle lights.  JaymeChrisman0114

My advice: Try not to stress, and start planning early. It’s your wedding only do what you want. Also, I really didn’t want to organize a seating chart so instead I put up a sign outside the lodge that read, “Come as you are, stay as long as you can, we’re all family, no seating plan.” Best decision ever.

 Emily’s Recommended Vendors

Venue: Moose Creek Ranch { More info | Website }.  This place is beautiful, quiet, and has awesome ‘glamping’ tents.

Photographer: Jamye Chrisman Photography { More info | Website }.  Jamye was everywhere and nowhere all at once. She captured all the required shots, was very unassuming, all with a very reasonable price.
