This Loloma Lodge wedding was unforgettable. Jill and Jesse win the super-cool-couple award. He’s a brewer at Ninkasi (one of my FAVORITE breweries) and she owns a kickass salon. They have the cutest dog ever. They are covered in gorgeous tattoos. They are super playful and clearly love each other and their lives so much. So, it was only fitting that their wedding was a total dream. They started their day off with a morning hike to nearby Proxy Falls with their families. Oh my gosh it was GORGEOUS. Even a hive of angry bees couldn’t stop us from having a good time. It was so refreshing and such a perfect way to start their laid back wedding day. Then they spent a few hours setting up and getting ready separately before seeing each other for the first time while walking down the aisle. Jesse’s reaction to seeing Jill had everyone in tears, and their sweet pup made cute little whimpery noises during the whole ceremony as if he knew something really important was going on. Then they rocked everyones world with TACOS FOR DINNER. So fun!! It was all so special. So relaxed. And so them. Congratulations Jill and Jesse. Thank you so much for choosing me to be there. This wedding was pure joy and one of my favorites I’ve ever been to!

Photo locations at Loloma Lodge.
There are SO many great places to take photos at Loloma Lodge. The lush forests on the property offer a ton of shade, which makes midday portraits easy. I loved the area near the ceremony site, along the river, and by the little bridge. The cabins are really cute and picturesque for photos as well!
The lodge is a little dark, but that moody vibe adds a lot of character to getting ready photos and portraits.
If you are up for it, Proxy Falls is a short drive (and short hike) away from Loloma Lodge. This couple did a hike there on the morning of their wedding with all their guests - such a stunning way to start the day! If you can build something like this into your timeline, you will love it!
