Lakeside Beach Wedding

Intimate Tahoe Wedding | Alicia + Matt

After quite a few phone conversations, Alicia and I lamented that we lived so far apart because we were all clearly meant to be BFFs forever.  Alicia and Matt believe in all the same things that I believe in: that day drinking is the greatest and that dining out is a vacation activity.

Matt and Alicia desired an intimate Tahoe wedding for their friends and loved ones.  The destination wedding was intended to be shared with only their most special people and they had really expressed how much they wanted the visit to be an shared experience with everyone in attendance, a sentiment that I am quite fond of.  I think that the best part about destination weddings is that everyone there gets to spend so much time with you over the course of the trip that it takes the pressure of the wedding day to try to connect with all in attendance.  Matt and Alicia also really wanted to showcase the gorgeous backdrop that Tahoe has to offer in their portraits and built in time for us to go offsite.  Unfortunately it was incredibly windy that day.  So windy that it was distracting.  I, however, knew just the place to tuck them away into and out of the gales and backlight them with some of that gorgeous golden sun that Tahoe gets in the late afternoon.

Lakeside Beach Wedding

Have you ever seen anything more adorable?

Seriously.  This couple is so cute, so fun, so easy going and to make matters even better they had the BEST FRIENDS.  I want to keep them all for myself.

You know you look really good when you get reactions like that.  Alicia was stunningly beautiful.  When she said she wanted retro vintage waves in her hair, I knew exactly who to send her to: my girl Katie at Tahoe Salon Be styled her out and after their small, intimate Lakeside Beach Wedding, Matt and Alicia and I headed over to Rabe Meadows in Stateline for a quick portrait session.  There’s more to come from this rad couple, but in the meantime…

Anytime I can witness the joining of two families, I’m ecstatic.  Kristie and Daniel were wed under bluebird skies at Lakeside Beach in Stateline, NV.  They drove from Reno, married on the beach, had lunch in Tahoe and then drove back to Reno to celebrate!  Thanks to Kristie, Daniel and their beautiful family who made me feel extremely welcome during my brief time as their Tahoe wedding photographer.

Anytime I can witness the joining of two families into one, I feel lucky.  La Saundra and Erik’s gorgeous family was no exception: their dapper young men and gorgeous young ladies were stellar kids all around.  Erik and La Saundra were married against a pristine blue sky and the backdrop of Lake Tahoe at Lakeside Beach surrounded by close friends and family.  I’m honored that I was able to be their Tahoe wedding photographer.

Blue skies, calm winds and one big laughing family came along with this gorgeous bride and her Lakeside Beach wedding.  I’m so happy LaSaundra hired me as her Tahoe wedding photographer for this small intimate summer wedding.  Her family was oh-so-fashionable and I’m positive that the field of nearby purple flowers that we discovered is an auspicious sign of years of happiness to come for LaSaundra and Erik.
