Snake River Sporting Club Wedding | Sandy & Paul
Sandy and Paul were married on February 11th, with a ceremony and reception at the Snake River Sporting Club.
My second shooter (and wonderful husband), Drew McElwee, and I arrived early at the club on the day of the wedding. I was with Sandy in the locker room as she got ready, while Drew was with Paul. Sandy’s family was by her side as she got ready to make this huge life change, and I was especially touched by the look on her son’s face when he saw his mom in a wedding dress. He even walked her down the aisle, which I thought was so sweet.
After the ceremony, we headed out with the bridal party for some romantic pictures. Sandy and Paul looked absolutely amazing against the stunning backdrops the venue had to offer, with the mountain views.
As night fell around the club, the winter wonderland theme of the wedding truly came out in full force. We were able to get some shots of the club at night in the snow with all the lights on while the reception was still going on, and it looked positively picturesque outside and inside.
The wedding was also filled with so many wonderful little details. For example, the place cards on the tables had hidden personal quotes on the back on top of guinea fowl feathers (a nod to Paul’s love of fly fishing). They had everyone turn over the place cards during the toasts for an added personal touch.
At the end of the night, everyone lit wish lanterns, and Paul and Sandy held hands as they watched the lights go up. It truly was a stunning sight.
Two days later we traveled to Grand Teton National Park for a post-wedding shoot and captured more of those mountain views – even a Green Acres shot, complete with a pitchfork.
Sandy & Paul, thank you for allowing me to document your special day! You had a beautiful vision going in, and it was wonderful to witness.
