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.
