I thought my wedding season for 2014 was concluded and wrapped up but Santa Claus brought me a surprise Lake Tahoe winter elopement for Christmas!  Shana and Randy decided to get married at the end of a gorgeous Lake Tahoe pier for their Beacon Tahoe wedding and I was honored to be included in their ceremony.

Shana and Randy surprised their family, who happen to all be close friends of mine, by showing up in Lake Tahoe unannounced on Christmas Eve.  They flew across the country from Virginia on a whim and with even bigger news in store than just their presence: they were going to elope on the shores of Lake Tahoe while they were here!

After a small intimate ceremony on the pier overlooking a sunny bluebird Tahoe day, the family moved the party home where a feast of enchiladas, tacos, and beer (of course) awaited them.
