A Chic Mountain Wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho

From the bride, Samantha: We are from Miami, FL and got married in Sun Valley, Idaho – where we got engaged! It was so great to have all of our closest friends and family in the mountains together – so far removed from our everyday lives – with tons of activities to do together.

The whole day was really personalized to what Adam & I wanted. We’re very casual and laid back and we just wanted to party in a beautiful setting!

The weather wasn’t working in our favor all weekend.  It didn’t rain all summer and of course, our wedding day was expecting rain. We had to order a tent for the ceremony last minute.

We held the ceremony outside underneath a clear tent with the ski mountain as the backdrop. We are Jewish so we were married by a rabbi, with a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah.

When the rabbi asked if my husband takes me to be his wife, his response was “yes” instead of “I do”! It was so typical of him and lots of laughter ensued!

I loved the way the florals turned out. The chandeliers were outfitted with flowers and greenery to match our color scheme and gave the tent a warm feeling.

Most memorable moment: Our first dance! We took dance lessons, which is SO out of character for the two of us but the end result was pretty comical.

ADVICE: I would encourage everyone to make decisions together. Adam and I did a lot of the legwork ourselves and it was fun! Definitely stressful at times, but remember that it’s just one day in your life…and to have FUN with it.

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.
