Anne Marie contacted me almost a year before her wedding was to take place, so there was a lot of excitement building up to their day! She met Tim through her cousin, and they spent a few years dating and really getting to know each other, saying that they, "have been very intentional about every step of our relationship, and we are sure that this is a life long love." That intentionally-built foundation of true love could not have shown more obvious on their faces as they said their vows exchanged rings, and shared their first kiss as husband and wife during their ceremony. Along with telling me her love story, she mentioned she was planning a small, simple wedding, which turned out to be one of the sweetest, most intimate weddings I've had the opportunity to be a part of.
Tim and Anne Marie's ceremony and reception were held at the Star Barn (Star Community Center) in Star, Idaho, just 20 minutes outside of Boise. The barn is owned by the Star Community church, and is nestled in a large grove of trees that were just beginning to show their leaves for this beautiful Spring wedding.
After stealing away from the party to take some bridal photos of just the bride and groom, Tim and Anne Marie joined back up with their friends and family for toasts. What a wonderful surprise for Anne Marie to hear some sweet words come through the speakers that her best friend had previously recorded since she wouldn't be able to attend the wedding. The surprise got even better when Anne Marie was then able to Skype with her dear friend from thousands of miles away. Many tears of joy were shed on both sides of the call.
This day was such an honor to be a part of. Tim and Anne Marie, thank you for the wonderful opportunity to capture the sweet memories of your wedding day, and treating me as a close friend. I wish you both the best as you continue on throughout life by each other's side, living with intention to always love completely.
