I first met Elias back in 2009 when we were both servers at the Mona Lisa Restaurant in Nampa (before photography became my full-time job). He was an outstanding young man, and I knew he was going to do something great with his life. I lost touch with him, and the years passed by.
Fast forward to fall of 2014. I got a message from Eli, who is now a member of the Boise band, Esterlyn. He had met the love of his life and he asked me to be there to photograph the big day. I was overjoyed! I was even more delighted to see that he had found a truly special, beautiful, (both inside and out) and sweet soul-mate in Jessica.
Their wedding was one of the happiest and most genuinely love-filled events I have ever attended. Family and friends danced the night away in celebration, and the couple left on bicycles, surrounded by those they love the most, and illuminated by a sea of sparklers, to begin their new life together.
Congratulations, you two. You’re perfection together.
