Whimsical Winter Wonderland, Part 1

At long last, a post about Meredith and Aaron’s beautiful wedding!

Meredith and Aaron are high school sweethearts who met in band (she a horn player, he a saxophone), who then went to college together, and got engaged on Christmas Day 2011. A year and four days later, they got married in a winter wonderland at Still Water Hollow, on the first night of the cold snap that seized up the Treasure Valley for the past several weeks, surrounded by about a hundred of their family members and closest friends.

I mostly just want to share some of the gorgeous photographs taken by Kristen Fields of Bon Vivant Studios. Seriously — if you’re in the market for some beautiful, straight-from-a-bridal-magazine photography, talk to Kristen! (She works outside the Boise area as well.) And if you’d like additional services, like wedding planning or invitation design, check out Posh & Pristine Productions for the whole package! Meredith and Aaron were incredibly fortunate to have won a photography and coordination package via a Facebook contest — thank you if you were one of the people who voted for them! — and the day-of assistance we received was extraordinary, on top of the lovely photography.

The pictures really are worth a thousand (or more) words here, so I’m going to let them speak for themselves. Enjoy. All images are copyright Kristen R. Fields 2012, reproduced here with permission.

  1. Meredith’s invitations and programs are spot on for what I wanted ours to be. I am not the word-art-smith that she is, so I had to settle for the Harrington(?) font and a silly zebra-in-a-bowler picture 🙂

    I don’t get all the photos of “stuff,” though. Our photographer did that, too, and I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with them all 🙂

    And we have wedding photos on a bridge, too! I wonder if there is a tumblr for that…

    • See, in this case, the photos of “stuff” were important because we’d been collecting and curating all of the directions for a solid year, and it was so nice to get to see how pretty it looked — because at the time, we were all too busy and tired to appreciate it. If we’d just rented everything or bought it in bulk, it wouldn’t have mattered — but it was all vintage/antique stuff that we’d carefully selected.
