Inspiration Behind the Shoot

Snowflakes, whiskey, and a warm, welcoming fire--there is nothing quite as magical as a winter elopement! As the air became chilled in Sun Valley, and snow blanketed the earth, photographer Christine Marie (in collaboration with a group of talented vendors) created this stunning shoot to inspire winter brides. "We all just wanted to showcase Sun Valley a little differently than we feel like it is usually seen," she said. The snow-capped mountain ranges and crisp air combined well with the whiskey, bright feminine flowers, huskies, fur coats, and burly men. Inspired by nature and a couple bright colors, the vendors hit the ground running to create this winter wonderland escape.
