Idyllwild Wedding photography at a Private Estate!
I’m still buzzing from this wedding in Idyllwild I photographed! It was so refreshing. As soon as I got out of my car at the Rainbow Inn and the crisp mountain air hit my lungs I was feeling inspired. Invigorating. Like jumping into a cold pool, I got that rush. Oh, and it was a Tuesday!! Gotta love it!
Rachel and James have been together since college [17 years] and decided today was the day. It was glorious… It was tradition… generations before shared the same day. I found myself an observer at an intimate ceremony on a tuesday, in a tiny chapel, on a friends private property up in Mountain Center. They spoke beautiful words to each other in front of 20 of their closest family and friends. It was perfect. I floated around for a couple hours and grabbed the moments as they presented themselves to me. I was flying solo on this one and not thinking about what was coming next. I really tried to stay attentive, anticipating the moment, while keep things casual and relaxed. Time moves slower up here, so it was easy to do.
I’m not sure what the scene is like up the mountain for Idyllwild Wedding photographers… but I’m looking forward to another opportunity to get up in that mix again.
