Lakeside Beach Elopement

Lakeside Beach Elopement | Lili + David

Lili and David met while working at a summer camp years ago.  He’s from Ireland and what ensued was a global romance, that involved trips to Australia, transAtlantic long distance love and finally, a pledge to wed.  It took sometime to secure David’s visa and Lili and David were adamant that I be the one to photograph their elopement, which is the ultimate compliment.  I got to pick the time (sunset of course!) and we started off with a portrait session at nearby Kahle Community Center and Rabe Meadows.

I’m so excited for these two to not only be in the same continent, but to have shared their experience with me.  They were nothing but laughter and smiles the entire evening.  It was an incredibly special Tahoe sunset Lakeside Beach elopement and I feel pretty lucky to have been the one to capture their ceremony.

Lakeside Beach Wedding

Tahoe Spring Wedding | Lake Tahoe, CA | Kerby + Tyler

I texted Kerby two days before her Tahoe spring wedding to ask about the backup location in the event of rain.  “Hi Lauren!” she responded, “So far we are rolling the dice! Unless it’s pouring rain we are sticking it out!”  There was only a 50% chance of light rain during her ceremony time.  I pointed out that meant great odds that she was in the 50% off the lake that didn’t have raindrops at just the right time.  “Positive thinking!” she said.  Our positive thinking won out because it stopped raining just long enough to set up her gorgeous ceremony decor and hold the ceremony.  The minute they kissed, the light pitter patter of raindrops could be felt.  It actually made their wedding all the more picturesque: low hanging fog like clouds gave great contrast to the sky and made for a gorgeous backdrop.  The wedding party held their ground, threw up some umbrellas and didn’t miss a beat while we did photos.  After that, we moved over to the Blue Angel Cafe event loft, where wine flowed, laughter roared and a dance party so epic ensued that the bride ended up with blisters on her feet!  What a wonderful gorgeous wedding with rad people to kick my Tahoe wedding season off with!  Thanks Kerby and Tyler!

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.
