Heavenly LGBT+ Wedding | South Lake Tahoe, CA | Beth + Sally

By |June 22nd, 2020|LGBT, Tahoe, wedding|

It was an intimate day that was almost completely DIY.  Beth and Sally bucked tradition and did many things that I find standard in LGBT+ weddings, like getting ready together and processing together down the aisle.  It was representative of both of them and their time together - they designed their own gifts, artwork, invites and florals. Follow this link to read more about Beth and Sally's intimate Heavenly LGBT+ wedding. We're celebrating Pride all month long with LGBT+ weddings and resources!!

Backyard LGBT+ Wedding | Tahoma, CA | Lisa + Hanna

By |June 8th, 2020|LGBT, Tahoe, wedding|

I LOVE backyard weddings.  I love the simplicity.  I love the camaraderie.  I love the uniqueness.  I love that people make it their own.  I love that there are usually long tables with family style dining and open seating plans.  I love dancing under twinkle lights and stars.  I love the lawn games and less formal attire and summery cocktails. I also love Pride month so what better way to celebrate it than with a month of LGBT+ wedding posts and related resources!

Flotilla Wedding | Lake Tahoe, CA | Julie + Tom

By |April 27th, 2020|wedding|

For Julie and Tom's wedding they wanted something a little unusual: a Flotilla! We all got to spend a few hours on boats on Lake Tahoe, cruising across the lake, soaking up the sunshine, drinking champagne, and enjoying everyone's company.  Not only was this Flotilla wedding one of the most interesting I've ever been a part of, but certainly one of the most memorable. In this life of isolation that we're living right now, a day on boats on the lake sounds incredibly alluring. Read all about it here!
