Courtney and Dallas have the most amazing story and the more I got to know them, the more I realized just how special it was.
Courtney and Dallas were good friends in high school. They ran around with the same crowd. They even dated for quite awhile (and had the prom pictures included in the wedding day slideshow to prove it!). But after high school, they went separate ways. Courtney to college, and Dallas to the military…but they always kept in close contact and remained great friends and confidants. It wasn’t until his last deployment when they both seemed to realize how much they missed each other when he was gone. He skyped as often as he could and on his last call to her he asked if he could take her out on a date when he got home…like, a real date. Courtney was surprised and so excited! And it seems their friends and family all took a collective sigh and said, “It’s about time!!” It was apparent to them that Courtney and Dallas were truly meant to be together almost right from the start.
Well, Dallas finally decided to make it official when he proposed to her while they vacationed in Hawaii. And it seemed fitting to them that they continue the Hawaiian theme to their wedding and Barber Park Event Center in Boise Idaho was such a perfect place for their extraordinary day. I just loved the bursts of color everywhere from their tropical bouquets to her blue shoes and ribbon down the back of her dress!
Normally I choose to only post 10 or 15 photos from a wedding to just give viewers a snippet of the highlights, but this time I decided to give you a whooping 50+ images. My hope is that if you yourself are a prospective bride, I can give you just a little bit better feel for how I can tell a story on your wedding day. Any photographer can show you a few good images from a wedding, but it takes an experienced photographer to anticipate the moments before they happen and be ready to capture them beautifully.
Courtney and Dallas, you are two of the kindest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and your union was such a wonderful day to be a part of! Best wishes in a lifetime of happiness to come!
