Eeek! I could jump in the air and scream I'm so excited! Our most recent Lake Tahoe weddings from this winter and last summer are now on our gallery!! Here are a few highlights:

Lake Tahoe wedding at Martis CampFresh, bright, and full of life! This wedding took place at Martis Camp in Truckee, CA - a stunning location amidst cascading mountains and a big beautiful red barn! We incorporated the bride's love for pop art into every detail throughout the wedding. Each festivity had a different patterned blue linen along with unexpected decorative elements. To read all about this wedding, you can check out the feature on Style Me Pretty!

Lake Tahoe lakefront WeddingRachel and John's Tahoe lakefront wedding took place at the Mourelatos Resort in Tahoe Vista, CA. Their first date took place at a french restaurant, so it only made sense to carry out this tasty cuisine at their wedding! We added a few French touches to the beach decor within the details. Fresh tahoe sand accompanied the peony arrangements and wicker platforms, while blue and white seer sucker linens and French country toile fabric decorated the table linens and escort cards! The overall feel was light, fresh, and romantic!

Lake Tahoe bbq on the lakeTo welcome all of the guests who traveled around the country to celebrate AJ & Ted's wedding, we held a Caribbean Welcome Party at the Gatekeepers Museum, a lakefront venue in Tahoe City! All guests were invited to enjoy cocktails, music, and a gourmet burger bar on the lake! Adirondack furniture accompanied fire pits, couches, and bistro lights to provide a comfortable, warm, and inviting setting! As the bride is from Bermuda and the groom is from the west coast, we incorporated details from both families. We had a Caribbean Steel Drum band performing by the lake, while guests enjoyed Mojitos & Dark & Stormy's at the tikki bar. The groom's family shares a huge love for horses, thus the groom's mom created a western ranch motif for the cocktail napkins and the branded necklaces. The groom himself had one request - fresh shucked oysters! So, Hog Island Bar served up juicy oysters nearby Moody's gourmet burger bar!

Bohemian wedding decorEvery once in a while we will get together with a few of our favorite vendors and work on a unique design for an editorial photo shoot! It's a great way for us to play around with our design ideas! This particular shoot was inspired by a shower curtain I found at Cost Plus! I couldn't resist the shades of turquoise, so we cut the bad boy into two strips and created table runners! Bellissima Floral designed the amazingly bold flowers and Matt Theilen produced the stunning photos! The backdrop of  Lake Tahoe at this lakefront venue was amazing! You can read all about the inspiration and the details in our feature on The Wedding Chicks.

Truckee Wedding This winter Fred and Betty said their I do's at the Cottonwood restaurant in Truckee! After a beautiful ceremony under a candlelit chandelier, everyone proceeded to the Cedar House Sports Hotel to celebrate! The bride wore a stunning Tara Keely princess gown that flowed effortlessly down the aisle next to the birch candle holders and her deep red cala lily bouquet! Hattie from Art in Bloom, created beautiful white and green flower arrangements that paired perfectly with Cedar House's organic design.

Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration | Ceremony Readings

Ceremony readings are a integral part of any wedding and whether you choose Bible passages, excerpts from a treasured poem or lyrics to a favorite song, the words you (or your readers) select will have a powerful impact on you and your guests. Whatever you decide, be sure the words are meaningful to both you and your groom and that they'll echo through the hearts of those who are sharing this day with you. Below are some of our favorite readings:


Union by Robert Fulghum

Art of Marriage by Wilferd A. Peterson

Excerpts from 100 Love Sonnets by Pablo Neruda

Epithalamion by Richard Crashaw

The Two of You by Czeslaw Milosz


Colossians 3:12-17

Romans 12:9-18

Apache Wedding Prayer

Traditional Chinese Oath of Friendship - Anonymous

Hindu Marriage Poem

Song Lyrics:

Come Rain or Shine, lyrics by Harold  Arlen and Johnny Mercer

Little Things Mean A Lot by Kitty Kallen

To Love is Not to Possess by  James Kavanaugh

And a personal favorite from Richard Bach

A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life.

These passages and pieces of prose are a small sampling of readings. If nothing rings true to who you are, below are some online sources for additional options.
