Celebrating One Year Married | A Couerd'Alene Idaho Engagement Shoot

Married One Year Ago Today, Congratulations Steve + Allison!

One year ago today,  my little family and I make our (first) trip across the country to Washington D.C.  to celebrate the last of our siblings to get married! It was a  family affair, I was  TICKLED PINK to have had the honor to stand beside them as a bridesmaid as they said their vows to each other. My children made the walk down the isle with little to no scene and of course my husband stood at his brother's side as the best man. What a treat for all of us and the 3rd "Mrs. Gion" to be inducted into the family!

With that celebration I gained a new sister when my brother-in-law married Allison and we love her so much! We live MILES apart, but I always look forward to the time we get to see each other again and pick up where we left off!! (If you're reading this...Miss you guys!!) xoxox

Back up a few months prior in the Fall of 2012 when the opportunity came for me to take their engagement pictures! Steve, a North Idaho boy at heart, we just had to create these images for them over in Idaho so to remember where he spent many of his teenage years growing up! From opposite sides of the country, I love that these 2 came together and allowed me to photograph them while visiting us here in North Idaho.

I couldn't be happier to have gained another brother-in-law when I married my hubby and now another sister!! It's the best! Sisters make the best friends and I'm so happy for them as they celebrate their one year anniversary today!!  What better time to share these images with you than on their one year anniversary?! Cheers you two, we love you!!!!

XOXO
