Antique Silver Rexburg Tabernacle Wedding Inspiration | Rexburg Wedding Photographer

In Southeastern Idaho, vintage  glamour can be hard to find. Most couples go with a rustic barn wedding because that is what is most available to them. I wanted to create a shoot that would inspire local brides to branch out and try something new! Here's a little bit about the Tabernacle:

The 1400 seat auditorium was designed by Otto Erlandson of Payson, Utah. It is located next to the library and a block from City Hall. The basement houses the Teton Dam Flood Museum. The Tabernacle was built in 1911. The two shades of rock used in the construction were quarried on the Rexburg Bench and in the Lyman area. It was placed in the National Register in 1974 citing its uniqueness in Idaho, both by virtue of its style and its association with the Mormon settlement. Architecturally, it is one of the very few Italianate church buildings in the state, and vastly exceeds all others in that style in character, size and imaginative use of stone. In 1976 the Teton Dam flood destroyed most pioneer homes and buildings in Rexburg. The citizens raised the funds to purchase the Tabernacle and repair the flood damage.

I had a blast hanging out with Courtney and Trevor for the afternoon while we explored the tabernacle and took some romantic photographs. The Rexburg Tabernacle is most often used for musical performances, so we decided some instruments of our own! Trevor did his best to serenade his lady and she seemed thoroughly enchanted as evidenced by the photographs below. Don't believe me? Check it out and see for yourself!
