Bri and Josh are the freaking cutest. They have huge hearts for adventure and God, and this elopement was a culmination of the two in the best way. (Would there be a worse way to combine these two things? Lol probably, nevermind) These guys met 4 years ago through mutual friends right after Josh graduated from high school. Bri was living with his best friend’s family at the time, and she soon became close to Josh. They began dating RIGHT before Josh left for college, and they have been long distance ever since! Thank god, those 4 years are over, and they finally get to be together all the time!
Josh proposed to Bri a few month ago. He told her to go to the property that they were soon going to build their house on. He actually even called her boss and told him to tell her that she needed to pick something up from the property. He was hiding there, waiting to pop the question! After Bri followed the directions on the card that he gave her, she arrived at the property. “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran started playing, and Josh came out and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. AWWWWWWW. How freaking cute!!
Bri and Josh wanted to get married in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. I’d never been there before, but it was soooooOooo gorgeous! I never would have though that Idaho would be a good place for an adventurous elopement, but I was totally wrong! Coeur d’Alene is so beautiful and such a stunning backdrop for an adventure! Bri and Josh did their first look on a hike, but halfway through the hike, IT STARTED RAINING! No big deal, I had a rain jacket in my backpack, and Bri held it over her head until it stopped raining and we finished the hike. Josh was waiting at the end of the hike to sing her a song and then he turned around and they saw each other for the first time!
They had their ceremony on the shore of the lake, with a few friends and family and the sun came out in full force.
