It’s a Coeur d’ Alene inspiration-fest here on Apple Brides today! Before Christmas, a fine group of Coeur d’ Alene area vendors got together to create 1920s wedding perfection, and what success they had!
It all started with the stunning Coeur d’ Alene wedding venue, The White House. Owner, Shawny wanted to create a shoot that paid tribute to the historic venue and also showed how diverse the space could be. She called in the help of an outstanding group of local vendors to help her bring it all together, including Misty from Cameo Events and Storybook Bridal, who did an fabulous job of helping to style and coordinate. They asked Michelle Nagle Photography and her colleague, Harmony, to take the unique vintage inspired photos. This shoot is FULL of great ideas. From the cake by Just American Desserts to the pin curls by Fratelli Salon and the million other details, you will definitely be inspired. If you’re a bride in the Spokane/Coeur d’ Alene area check out the full list of vendors below the post, you won’t be sorry!
Before we dive into the photos, you HAVE to watch this beautiful video Austin from Sure Shot Video made to complement the shoot….STUNNING!
Here is a little more from Shawny about the shoot…
“My vision or inspiration really came from my initial love of this house. I have had my eye on it for 15+ years, watched as they remodeled it, even toured through when it was down to the 2×4’s still being redone. The fact that I run a business from this venue is on another level for me, with all it’s history and elegance it has so much to offer brides and people wanting to throw an event that is out of the ordinary. It reminds them of a simpler time with great memories and that was my vision for this shoot. Black and white pictures with people interacting and having a reason to celebrate. No matter the economy, girls still want to be a bride with all they have dreamed of, and we try to accommodate her starting with a beautiful backdrop to her day.”
