Chateau at Incline Village

Chateau Wedding | Incline Village, NV | Caitlin and Brad

Can all weddings have flower girls that clean up their flowers during the ceremony please?  For real.  Have you ever seen anything more adorable?

Caitlin and Brad met while attending the University of Arizona and now are loving living in Reno.  Mountains, athletics and four seasons are important to them and their friends definately did not let any of this, or their antics during college, escape their speeches at the wedding!  Brad’s brother actually kicked off the entertainment: he delivered, without a doubt, the most hysterical and amazing best man speech I’ve ever heard in the history of all weddings.  I could hardly take photos through the laughter induced tears.

Their Chateau wedding in Incline Village was graced with beautiful light, a kick ass dance party and plenty of laughter.  It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple!

Ciao Bella!

Lisetta and her Italian Family were unparalleled wonders of people full of amore, risata and more than one regina della danza.  Lisetta met Sam and self professed that they “did it all backwards:”  started dating, moved in together, had a wonderful precocious child when after being told she could “never” have children, and then decided to marry.  Their ceremony was intimate and filled with the hilarious tears of their son, who had both me and all of their friends and family in stitches.  He miraculously stopped crying as soon as the ceremony ended.  I loved every minute of it and I foresee plenty of taunting re-tellings in his future of the the story of their special day.

This DIY wedding was a total family affair: pops helped set the tables and decorate the reception area, Sam’s own sister made the cakes and cupcakes (which were divine), and Italy pervaded throughout it all.  From start to finish, I felt lucky to be completely included in this wonderful familiar feeling affair.  I was invited to sit at a table with some of Lisetta’s coworkers and friends and loved hearing stories about how they met and all the traditions they share.

Any family who ends their night like this is totally the kind of family I want to photograph.
