The latest issue of The Knot, Northern California, is out - and we are in it!! We are so thrilled that Jessica and Brian's beachfront Lake Tahoe wedding celebration will be preserved in such a beautiful mag! Our lovely couples' gorgeous Tuscan themed celebration took place on the sandy beaches of Rubicon Bay on the West Shore. Take a peek below for some of the beautiful images captured by the utterly awesome Mike Larson Photography!
Celebration Details ~
The Rubicon Bay on the west shore is one of the most beautiful areas on the lake, and Brian and Jessica couldn't have chosen a more stunning backdrop to have their wedding celebration. The golden sandy beaches and tropical water of Rubicon Bay meet pine trees and meadows making it a perfect place to have a wedding isolated from the rest of the world. We helped Brian and Jess incorporate a Tuscan theme into the entire wedding - so similar to a Lake Como backdrop the ceremony was set on the lake, cocktails amongst the old growth pine trees, and dinner on the lawn under a romantic canopy of lights. Later, the beach was transformed into a magical sunset reception with dancing and live music under the stars!

I have always been in love with the unique, yet traditional floral combination of green, white, and yellow. It's a classic look that never ceases to impress in both simple and extravagant occasions and settings. It's subtle, elegant, and fresh while still providing prominence.

The Knot's pick of best outdoor sites features the Redwood Grove at the UC Botanical Gardens. This place is beautiful ~ the tall redwood trees create a very magical and romantic setting while the amphitheater creates an atypical but intimate ceremony site. We coordinated Christine and Tom's wedding here last August. Everything from the floral arrangements to the voluptuous redwoods was stunning and caught the guests by surprise.
The service started with the bridesmaids and groomsmen entering from behind the guests as tradition states, but the bride and her father walked through the trees down a winding path in front of the amphitheater, allowing the guests to sneak a peak of the bride in between the tree trunks and the greenery. During the service, Christine's brother joined the musicians by playing the violin. It was romantic, peaceful, and perfect!
