A Simple DIY Wedding at Still Water Hollow in Nampa, Idaho

Wanting their wedding to be simple and intimate, Katie Diehl and Cory Brown chose Still Water Hollow in Nampa, Idaho, for their venue. They loved the historic, quaint little white chapel (built in 1899!) for their traditional, religious ceremony and the rustic, personalizable ballroom for their reception. Katie and Cory decided to exchange vows at sunset because Cory is a firefighter and is often gone at night, so they say they often think of each other and wonder what they are doing every day at that time. Wanting to keep the ceremony extra romantic, they lined the aisle with floating candles in mason jars and dimmed the lights in the room. Katie’s mother made all the floral arrangements for the day, including the classic anemone and hydrangea bouquets and eclectic gerbera daisy centerpieces. The couple also hung Katie’s mother’s handmade quilts along the walls at the reception and draped white linens from the ceiling for a shabby-chic look. At the end of the night, the couple enjoyed three one-tier white buttercream wedding cakes, all decorated with different patterns.
