I love being able to start the week off on Once Wed with a gorgeous real wedding! Jennifer and Bill were married in Idaho and it was all captured by the talented Jesse Leake. You can tell it was one of those days filled with laughter, love and family. All the sweet details only added to the charm. Everything from the paper goods to the creative flower-filled arrows from Chestnut & Vine came together to create such a lovely rustic wedding.

INCREDIBLE wedding. This is the wedding I want to walk into. This wedding holds so many of the elements we crave for our own celebration!

Love the joy on that brides face :-)

beautiful! now that is wildflowers done right – what great inspiration! I love the arrow topiary (is that what you’d call it?) the touch of sunflowers, not too over done, nothing fussy about it – i just love it!

jesse is seriously the best in the biz in my opinion. his weddings/work is so in a league of its own. his work totally inspired me to persue weddings when I first started. and this wedding lives up to that standard indeed.

I love the colors in this wedding. And the flowers…

I’m into making paper flowers for little boxes these days, and the 2nd photo is really inspiring. I just love those lively red blooms.
I’ll try to make some out of paper… should be fun :)

The bride and groom has such great chemistry—it’s impossible to miss. Love the photos on the hay stacks—too cute.

What a beautiful wedding! My parents actually live on Sioux Drive out Indian Creek, and I’m hoping to get married at the small lake further up the road with reception to follow in their backyard, what a coincidence!

Congratulations on a wonderful wedding from a fellow Sioux Drive resident. Sorry to say we have been on hiatus in California.

May you live long and have many healthy children!

This photographer is a true genius! His pisctures were taken and no one knew he was around shooting shots. If you are being married and you desire a superb set of photographs, he’s your man!
