I had never actually met Anna & Kenny until their wedding day, but thanks to social media and a few phone calls, I felt like we were already best buds as I walked through their front door! They are the most kind & welcoming people and to say that they were a little excited to get married to each other would be an understatement! Their Red Lodge Wedding was truly a day they’ll never forget!
This is Anna’s parent’s backyard!!! Isn’t it absolutely stunning?! I can see why they wanted photos taken here!
I think these guys may have had too much fun with the poses… who am I kidding, is it possible to have too much fun at a wedding?!!
Red Lodge Wedding at St. Agnes Church
I love when bride’s choose to do a “first look” with their father!! This was one of the sweetest moments I’ve ever seen! He was such a proud Papa!!
Anna & Kenny first met in the Fall of 2011, when Anna moved to Spokane to begin her college career at Gonzaga University. One of her older brothers, Colton (the best man), was a junior at the time and lived off campus in a house with three roommates. As a nervous but excited young freshman, Anna visited her brother frequently for dinners, family bonding, AND the third roommate that she thought was pretty cute, Kenny!
Sparks flew immediately and the two began going on dates more and more frequently. Whether it was listening to country music, dancing on the back deck, going to college parties, watching baseball, or attending Gonzaga basketball games, the two were bound to be seen with smiles on their faces enjoying and laughing with one another. Since then, these two have been building on their journey together. And on July 7th they embarked on a lifelong commitment and cannot wait to see what life has in store for them!
Red Lodge Wedding Reception at Rock Creek Resort
Everyone gave amazing toasts that night, but Anna’s dad told the sweetest story about how they picked the song “I Loved Her First” many years ago for their dance together. He also described what a strong bond they have because she is his only daughter. It was very moving and definitely had us all in tears!
I’m so glad that I got to meet Anna & Kenny and photograph the biggest day of their lives! It was awesome!!
A special shout out to all the amazing vendors who made Anna & Kenny’s day absolutely perfect!
