Reta & Gray’s summer garden party wedding in Sun Valley Idaho | Knob Hill Inn Wedding
Reta & Gray’s beautiful garden wedding at the Knob Hill in was so beautiful. Spring in Sun Valley is one of my most favorite seasons. Everything is so green and if you’ve never seen the garden area at Knob Hill you’re missing out. The ceremony was set up in a grove of trees with the most stunning arch covered in florals and it was a warm enough evening where the big sliding doors could be opened and the guests inside and outside in the tent could still mingle and enjoy the wedding. Reta & Gray have been together FOREVER haha, I mean they’ve been together since they were in their early teens, they’ve never broken up and they have become some of the most beautiful humans together, and with the love and support from family and friends. It’s so rare to find this anymore and I just soak it up to be honest.
The day started off with everyone getting ready at the Knob Hill Inn sipping Champagne while the day’s events unfolded around them. Reta and Gray chose to do a first look down the aisle, the expression on both of their faces when they locked eyes for the first time was very emotional and I seriously get tears every time. It was so cute because at the rehearsal they didn’t practice the “kiss” so the bridal party was all anticipating what would happen at that moment, don’t worry nothing crazy happened - it was just slightly more anticipated than normal.
After the ceremony the chairs were taken and moved under the tent, guests made their way to cocktail hour to sip signature drinks and munch on yummy apps and we made our way out so Reta + Gray could have some much needed alone time (with me of course) to soak in all that had just happened and re-group. I always always suggest carving out some time after the ceremony especially if you chose not to do a first look. The day can get overwhelming and stressful and it’s good to take the time to remind yourself why you are doing this and to enjoy each other and the beautiful spot you’ve chosen to be married in. The evening continued with first dances before dinner, the best toasts, cake and ended with a full night of dancing.
There is some serious love happening between these two and their families and I’m so honored they chose me to photograph their most special day.
from the bride…
“It was an absolute pleasure working with you! You are so calm, creative, and really fun. We had an absolutely amazing time yesterday/last night. It was also great to get to know you a little bit at the shower. Literally nothing could have been better this weekend. Thank you for contributing to the best night of our lives. Can’t wait to see the sneak peeks and the entire gallery later on!”
being a photographer in Sun Valley has been such an amazing blessing and I have been able to work some spectacular people in the wedding industry. This gorgeous wedding at Knob Hill wouldn’t have been made possible without these amazing vendors!
