Groom adjusts the watch on his wrist as he prepares for his wedding ceremony

It’s not often that we get a chance to capture city weddings. Being located in the Pacific Northwest we are often out somewhere in the mountains, canyons, or alongside a river. Sumr and Kyle’s downtown Boise wedding was the first in a few years. But their beautiful day reminded me just how fun a wedding in the city can be. 

Getting Ready

We started the day heading over to the Residence Inn by Marriott located on the corner of Capitol and Myrtle St. Kyle and Sumr were getting ready in their own suites there, just a couple of blocks away from their wedding venue. We took some photos of each of them getting ready for the day, and soon they were ready for their first look. They had decided they wanted to see each other for the first time in their wedding attire on a balcony on top of the hotel.

After some struggling to get everyone up and down the elevator, Sumr and Kyle had a peek of each other in front of their wedding party. Kyle’s reaction was nothing short of pure excitement and surprise. It still amazes me just how nervous he had been all morning, only to completely open up after they were finally together. His love for Sumr was apparent the moment he laid eyes on her.

Downtown Boise Wedding at Beside Bardenay

After spending some time together, we all headed down to the downtown Boise wedding venue, Beside Bardenay. We crossed some streets and passed numerous strangers all congratulating Sumr and Kyle and wishing them the best. Sumr was glowing as she walked through the streets of Boise, a city that she told us she adores. All I could think about was that this entire experience was so them.

Their ceremony was filled with emotion. From their family and friends who so obviously cared about them, to the beautiful vows they swore. They lead multiple people in attendance to tears. Together they stood in front of a gorgeous brick backdrop under the twinkle of rustic lights, surrounded by love. Once they sealed their love with their first kiss, they brought out a couple of tequila shots to seal their marriage in their own non-traditional way. After toasting to each other and knocking back their shots, they began their journey together.

Sumr and Kyle consider themselves to be major foodies, so after taking a bite of cake they picked out some delicious donuts from Pastry Perfection to share. Finally, they spent the rest of the night dancing and drinking with their friends and family. It was a perfect way to spend a lovely night in the city.
