Gorgeous Cour d’alene, Idaho Wedding // Melanie & Jon

You may remember Melanie & Jon from their engagement portraits in San Francisco earlier this year. After having the chance to hang out with them at their home, I just knew this wedding was going to be not only special but a ton of fun, too! These two met through Melanie’s sister in London (where Jon was living and working at the time) it was instant fireworks. After a little bit of long distance time, these two knew they’d met their match. It wasn’t long before Jon joined Melanie in San Francisco. They had a lot of friends and family coming from all over the world so they decided to give everyone an extra special treat: a destination wedding in beautiful Cour d’alene Idaho, a resort town set on a stunning lake. A good friend of Melanie’s family runs events at the Hagadone… and he set them up to not only get married, but to borrow the sailboat from the Hagadone family estate. Incredible! The reception brought everyone together to have the biggest bash you ever did see, with a band that had everyone on the dance floor (and up at the mic signing) all night long! Melanie & Jon, a huge congratulations on your marriage. It was an incredible hounour for us to be a part of your day.
