The Atrium | Spring Rexburg Temple | Mallory & Stephen
When I first met Mallory and she told me about her wedding over ice cream I knew that it was the kind of wedding that I wanted to photograph. These are the key words that hooked me: peonies, The Atrium, lace. Yes! We were able to do Stephen’s and Mallory’s bridals a few days before their wedding to help alleviate the time for pictures on their wedding day. I will show those later. (Believe me you don’t want to miss them!) But they were super cold. In fact we had a spring snow storm. I was really glad when I arrived at the Rexburg Temple on March 26th to find a pleasant, relatively warm afternoon.
Mallory and Stephen truly are one of my favorite couples. They were set up on a blind date and did a lot of long distance during their dating. You can tell how much Stephen adores Mallory in their photos though. Mallory rocked her beautiful lace dress from Circle of Love in Rexburg. I was infatuated with her dress. It was elegant and beautiful. After their temple ceremony, Stephen and Mallory at a luncheon at The Atrium, in Rexburg. Their friends and family gathered together to celebrate. Mallory’s family flew in from Alaska for her wedding. Both families were so welcoming and I loved being able to hang out with them during the day. Their were a few toast and speeches in their honor. Then the tables were cleared for the reception with dancing, cutting the cake, and bouquet toss. Sassy Flowers created Mallory’s bouquet.
This is probably one of my favorite images. Amongst all the chaos of getting everything ready. Stephen and Mallory were focused on each other. 😀 My favorite bridal images from the day: I could just die over all the chandlers at The Atrium. They have them all over the main room. Plus a huge glass window that lets in a lot of natural light. I don’t know what it is about first dances but they are seriously one of my favorite parts of the day. I love watching the couple look at each other, dancing to words and music that helps them describe their love for each other. That dress! The party got really started after that. I love these photos because Mallory, her sister, and her mom are right up front having a great time. And of course a lavender exit complete.
