Ashlee and Troy are quite possibly the most giving humans on the planet.  Although their Hyatt Lake Tahoe wedding was absolutely gorgeous, what I really want to talk to you about is their travel plans. For their honeymoon, they plan on spending time abroad wwoofing.  Oh, you don’t know what that is?  WWOOF is a worldwide movement linking volunteers with organic farmers and growers to promote cultural and educational experiences based on trust and non-monetary exchange, thereby helping to build a sustainable, global community.  My best-friend-slash-life-partner Anne actually did this for years in Hawaii when we were in our twenties.  It’s a great way to see the world while learning and helping to create and foster sustainable environment.  FOR THEIR HONEYMOON. Who does that? These kids.

They are an infectious couple, full of smiles and energy, yet at the same time, I found them both to be an incredibly calming presence throughout the entire day. They balance each other well and have an incredible bond. They are both currently students at the University at Nevada in Reno and although their honeymoon plans will have to wait until they graduate, I know they have incredible futures ahead of them. Their ceremony was incredibly charming, complete with a grandmother flower girl (my favorite), copious amounts of laughter and tears, and great spirits despite the dipping Tahoe temps and wild winds that accompanied this fall wedding.

Big thanks to my friend Christi Nassar from Epic Thyme Events who paired me with this dynamic couple for this amazing fall Hyatt Lake Tahoe wedding.  I always love working with a dream team and she is it!
