When Rick and Lisa first contacted me, they didn’t actually have a date for their wedding. She sent me a really amazing email that said, among other things, “I really do think avocados are their own food group, and I can eat my weight in avocados on any given day.” Over the course of our correspondence, I fell in love with her adventurous spirit, vivacity and general good humor. When they finally picked their date, it turned out to be a day that I had no intent of shooting a wedding on: the day following my birthday party. I couldn’t, just couldn’t, not be part of this amazing couple who seemed like such kindrid spirits to me. Among their love of avocados, day drinking and laughing at themselves, they were also marathon runners. I said yes. I would sacrifice the ability to be “not so sparky” the day after my party for these two awesome people and I am SO glad that I did.
Lisa and Rick were wed in an intimate ceremony overlooking Lake Tahoe on a perfectly gorgeous bluebird day at the Heavenly Blue Sky Terrace. After the ceremony, we snuck off in a limo to Zephyr Cove for wedding party portraits. Their motley crew of friends were exactly the kind of people I like to spend time with: loud boisterous day drinkers that love to laugh, dance and enjoy life. The best part of the jaunt over to Zephyr Cove: it was topped off with Lisa taking shots with a Bachelorette Party on the beach!
