Beach Wedding - Lake Tahoe

Beach Wedding - Location: Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe, California, CA

Monica & Jason wanted a beautiful laid back - the wind in our hair and sand in our feet- wedding! And we can say that it was definitely what they envisioned! We just love these shots of their first kiss before sun down and another of their newly wed kiss after the sun started to set. If you've always wanted a beach wedding maybe in Hawaii, Thailand, Fiji, Mexico etc. if you are in California; try Lake Tahoe! We were so impressed by the clean cove and awesome weather! Just look at these pictures of them frolicking in the sand and trees!

Monica & Jason said I do on the sand, partially in the water and surrounded by a giant garlands of orchid and greenery positioned in a half circle. The bride held a cute bouquet of bright orchids and the groom supported a deep orchid purple tie and dark grey suit. Here's some of the elements we loved from their wedding: 

 

the dress

We cannot stop swooning at this unique dress by Ines Di Santo! It flowed in the wind, the slit was perfectly sexy but still classy, the tulle and organza bow on her chest and her matching hair piece! It hugged her petite frame in all the right places and flared out gorgeously. We can't get enough! Just look at the newly wed strut after being pronounced husband and wife!

 

FUN WEDDING PARTY

Nothing like a group of friends to liven up your wedding pictures! The bridesmaids supported matching purple dress from Etsy while holding adorable white orchid blooms as the grooms supported shades of grey suites and matching white orchid boutineers. 

 

THE SETTING

We wanted to share some iphone pics of the behind the scenes of this intimate beach side wedding set up! The bride & groom had picture frames of their time together, their families and friends, and a touching memorial section for those who were gone too early to be at this special event. The giant orchid garland was brought onto the cocktail hour lawn to pose surrounding the bride's DIY schedule before moving to the sweetheart table for reception - we loved conserving the environment! 

As the sun went down, the string lights glittered and the decorative vases with orchid blooms and candles floating in water created a perfectly romantic ambiance. They also had a dessert table filled with cupcakes supported by organic wooden trays and stand, finishing off with the most adorable cream frosting cake with blush and white orchids on top. 

 

THE EXIT

We know that a lot of weddings have sparkler exits but that is because it's a classic! And also if you are ever wondering if you should have a professional take pictures (especially at night) here is our comparison of our picture and the professional shot. A lovely exit to a lovely event!

Thank you monica & jason for entrusting us with your important day!
