Wedding on the shore of Priest Lake, Idaho

Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com

Gorgeous setting for a wedding, isn't it?  Jerome Pollos Photography  photographed the wedding of Deanna & Pete. This is what Jerome had to say...

After seeing a few Elkins Resort weddings making their way through the blog scene, I knew I wanted a shot at this great venue on the shores of Priest Lake. It is an awesome location with a gazillion locations for photos. Not just portraits. It seems like every area of this spot is meant for great documentary, story-telling images.

I got my chance and once I sat down with Deanna during our consultation I realized two very important things: 1). We got along very well; and 2). Her fiancé isn't a fan of being in front of the camera. We made a visit to Elkins a few months later and came up with a game plan for the big day and how to put Pete at ease with me following him around with a camera.

Fast-foward six months and I'm on my way to my cabin at Elkins to document the rehearsal dinner on a Friday and the wedding festivities the next day. The game plan went off without a hitch. Everyone was so welcoming and relaxed. A few happy tears were shed (which I took full advantage of), there was a ton of laughs and a great celebration to end the night.

Deanna and Pete definitely made my initiation to Elkins a memorable one. Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Idaho Wedding | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com  Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.comJerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.comJerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photographer | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.comJerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.comJerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photography | BrideAccess.com Jerome Pollos Photography, Wedding photographer | BrideAccess.com   After seeing a few Elkins Resort weddings making their way through the blog scene, I knew I wanted a shot at this great venue on the shores of Priest Lake.

5 Habits of Happiness

FIVE HABITS OF HAPPINESS

“Over the past five years, I’ve researched happiness in 49 countries,” says Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage. “We found, throughout the world, that there are five habits that affect success outcomes and health.”

 

1. The three gratitudes. Every day, make a list of three new things that you are grateful for.

2. Two-minute journaling. Take two minutes to write about a positive experience, no matter how small.

3. Fifteen minutes of fun. Set aside 15 minutes each day for a fun, mindful activity, such as taking a walk with a loved one.

4. Make time to meditate. Practice meditation for two minutes each day. Focus on your breath. (Don’t worry if your mind wanders!)

5. Reach out. Write a two-minute positive email praising or thanking someone in your social circle.

Pop the next big question-Which family will you spend the holidays with?

Now you have found the one you want to spend your life with, so it's time for the next big question... which family are you going to spend the holidays with? Luckily there are several holidays so the two of you get to decide with whom, when and where you spend these special days. Some circumstances are tricky - but you get to be creative, communicate and figure it out-- together.  And you know what?- if you don't get it right this year, you have many years to practice. Here are some things I suggest you talk about with your loved one...   maybe today?  

                    Holiday traditons and the in-laws                

1. Talk about the holidays- How do you feel about each holiday? How did you spend your holidays before the two of you met?

2. Talk about how you spent the holidays when you were a child. What traditions did you have? Which ones would you like to keep for your family? What would you like to change?

3. Agree on how you as a couple would like to establish traditions. Try to be fair. Balance is the key and realize that you will always be adjusting. Being flexible and setting boundaries may just be the key.

4. Remember holidays are emotional times for everyone and we like it like that-- usually! Remember you probably can't make everyone happy, so decide what is the best decision for the two of you, then stick to it and be loyal to your spouse. 

5. Always check with your loved one before commiting to an event. (I thought a surprise was fun, but have found out that didn't go over so hot - breakfast in bed would have been a better surprise!)

                                        

Good Things Utah and Robin at BrideAccess.com and will give you more suggestions...

                                         

There are many options on how to spend the holidays ...

                           His family's home one year, hers the next.

                           One day at his home, one day at hers.  

                           A few hours at his family's home, a few hours at hers.

                           Thanksgiving with his family, Christmas with hers.

                           Christmas Eve with his, Christmas Day with hers.

                           Everyone comes to your home.

If you can't come to a resolution, consider a vacation-- just the two of you!
