Can we talk about how adorable these two are for a moment! Claire and Cole tied the knot up at Hidden Creek Lodge at Pine Rose cabins this summer and it was a beautiful day. I can’t help but swoon over her choice of details and colors, the soft blush and peach tones really complimented the greenery all around the venue so well. Her whimsical boho look was perfect for their outdoor wedding under the stars. This June was a busy one for Whimsie Studios; our team had several back to back weddings and even some weddings on the same days.
How did you meet?
We met on bumble! Shortly after meeting we realized we were a block away from each other and ended up on the same coed softball league! Through the league we really got to know each other.
How did you know she/he was the one?
It was pretty early on for both of us. It was when we went on our first road trip together to go on a hike. Cole downloaded all my favorite music so if we ran out of things to talk about, we could jam out. However, the opposite happen we couldn’t stop talking the whole way there. Even on the hike it felt like we’ve been best friends for years and we were just catching up. Years later when someone asked us this same question, we both realized on trip we both called our moms after day date we both told them “I think I met the one” crazy!
How did he propose?
It was our 2 year anniversary, Cole planned a road trip to Big Bear! We’ve always been in love with the outdoors so big bear was on our list of places to visit. Cole got a beautiful cabin in the pines. We are a couple that lovessss board games, card games etc. So after the long drive, we made cocktails and played Life. (We both haven’t played in years) so when I landed on “Get married” I was so into the game that my eyes were glued on the instructions that the moment I looked up Cole was already on his knees!
Why did you choose your venue?
It was soooo us. The second we saw pictures of Pine Rose we couldn’t picture ourselves anywhere else. If it was up to us Cole and I would live in the outdoors lol so pines and the mountains we were in heaven.
What was your floral inspiration?
Really soft beautiful colors
What was the theme/colors/concept for your wedding? Whimsical, elegant, dreamy
Colors, shades of blushes and sage green
Why did you choose Whimsie Studios to photograph your wedding day? The beautiful beautiful work I’ve seen on Instagram, website etc. It was the quickest decision made!
What was your wedding day photoshoot experience like? Awesome!!! The girls really eased my nerves! They were so great with everyone and made the experience fun. Of course, Coles groomsmen made me laugh nonstop.
What was the highlight of your wedding day, the best part for each of you?
Marrying Cole, hands down.
And I have a big family it’s always rare when we get the entire crew under one roof so that alone made the whole event so special.
Cole—-I would say honestly watching Claire walk down the aisle. Had so much emotion running through me.
Also, Watching my parents dance was super special too. They’ve been married almost 50 years and are still so in love it was motivation in a moment.
What did you like most about working with me?
Communication was awesome and a blessing. Sadie went through the entire timeline of what to expect on our wedding day, down to the times and everything. The girls that shot our wedding were so down to earth and just super sweet, it put everyone at ease with taking a ton of photos.
My associate team knocked this wedding out of the park while Kyle and I were down in Orange county shooting another couples wedding day. Shout out to Sarah Robertson and Emi Fujii for rocking their wedding day and serving our couples so well! I am proud to have you ladies on my team!
