A Moody Summer Shoot | Eagle, Idaho

This Ralph Lauren-inspired shoot aimed to combine luxury with a relaxed equestrian atmosphere to create inspiration for a luxury wedding day at a private estate. Filled with elegant yet relaxed details, our goal was to show how having your wedding day on your private residence doesn’t mean compromising rich & beautiful details. We integrated rich summer tones into the day – purples, yellows, and oranges all popped with the olive green & wood tones providing an organic background. The focus for photos were on intimate moments & candid storytelling. Again, showing how a luxury wedding day doesn’t have to compromise on intimacy & authenticity. We hope you enjoy these photographs & can use them as inspiration for your upcoming day.

A little bit more about me

Hello! Holly here. I am so excited to meet you soon and hear all about your wedding day. Here are some quick fun facts about me so you can get to know me more…

My Hobbies

I love hosting themed parties with friends, decorating spaces, pretending I know how to garden, making overpriced charcuterie boards, and finding kitchsy Airbnbs.

My Pets

Our matching set. First came Millie then came Billie. Millie loves neck scratchies and Billie loves tennis balls and we love them both.

My Husband

We met in college but reconnected in San Francisco. We love going on drives to coffee shops, hitting up yard sales, and tinkering on our old cars.

My Wedding

We got married in 2020 in an intimate wedding in one of our favorite places: Palm Springs. We honeymooned in Japan 3 years later! Every year, Julian and I do a trip to renew our vows. Our first year we went to Vegas and renewed them in a pink Cadillac with Elvis! Highly recommend.

My Home

We love our little, old home. While it is a never-ending construction project, we are big fans of it’s charm, quirks, and the many memories we have made in it. We also love living in Boise! Idaho has so many wide open spaces and endless nature to explore.

Thank you for reading & I cannot wait to meet you!

Gathering’s Core Values

I aspire to make your big day the most special and wonderful day of your life. I take your vision and make it a reality. By selecting the very best vendors, managing your budget, creating a custom timeline, & so much more, I take care of the planning so you can concentrate on all the exciting events that accompany this time of your life.

You’re probably overwhelmed with all the wedding information out there, but don’t worry, you’re not alone. I am here to help make your lives a little easier during a time that is often unnecessarily stressful for a lot of couples. Be it requiring help to find linens to match your wedding aesthetic or needing help to understand the best lighting for golden hour photos – I am here to answer any and all queries.

I also pride myself on working with my set of core values every day. I always strive to do my best for my couples, and use these core values to guide me every day…

01 Make it personal

Whatever makes you unique and authentic as a couple is what I want to build your wedding day around. I always make sure everything from the planning process to the day itself is tailored to who you both are and what you envision your day to be like

02 Approach it Creatively

I love thinking outside the box to solve problems. Whether it be helping you pick out your color palette, finding a more affordable solution, or solving a wedding day emergency, we love approaching everything with an inventive and can-do attitude

03 Lead with Empathy

I understand wedding planning can be a tough process. There are lots of decisions to be made, lots of family dynamics and opinions to navigate, and life doesn’t get less busy just because you are wedding planning. I always make sure to give my couples grace during the planning process. I’m here with you!
