This wedding was a dream. The bride and groom specifically picked this venue, Artist For Humanity because they loved the idea of working with a unique industrial backdrop for their wedding decor. What is great about renting the Artist for Humanity for your event is the fact that it’s pretty cheap and that it’s a blank slate for your decor. They took this space to the next level by adding their own flair of chic decor with burlap table cloths, beautiful pink peonies flowers, globe string lights for indoor ambiance, and a beautiful long barn-wood head table with lots of lace and flowers.
I always suggest doing the bride and groom photos before the wedding day begins which is just after the getting ready. You can read my thoughts about the pros and cons of seeing each other before the ceremony – HERE. Deciding on a location to do your bride and groom portraits before the wedding is important. Putting some thought in terms of what you want in your backdrop is also important. This bride and groom decided they wanted a city scape in the background of their photos. It is also important to be able to do a few different backdrops within walking distance of your primary location. The secondary location for this couple was in a little green park near by. In Coeur d’Alene one of my favorite places to take photos of couples is on the Coeur d’Alene Boardwalk, one of the world’s longest floating boardwalk, 3,300 feet long and 12 feet wide, featuring a swinging gate for sailboats and a bridge for powerboat entry. This boardwalk is located down the street from one of Coeur d’Alene’s cutest wedding venues called The White House which is located on Sherman Avenue.
