Real DIY Backyard Mountain Wedding in Lake Tahoe | Part 1

Beautiful Autumn Lake Tahoe Mountain Wedding

The Mountain Sea

Wedding: Anne & Rob
Location: Family Friend's Home on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe
Date: 10-2-10

On of the things I love about Tahoe is that your can have a classic rustic wedding mountain style, or you can go for a beachy boat theme. IN fact Tahoe is so popular that many Mammoth Lakes locals choose to get married there instead of in their own mountains. Today's wedding is the epitome of that mountains sea vibe that only Tahoe can give. And the Anne's style just elevates the area that much more. Look at all those gorgeous details. There's so much mountain wedding goodness, I had to divide it up into two posts. So come back later today for part 2 of Anne and Rob's Lake Tahoe Wedding!

From the Photographer:

Anne and Rob are a wonderful couple with amazing style!  They had their wedding and a family friend's home in Lake Tahoe, Ca and it was the perfect setting for this beautiful fall wedding.  Anne loves big bold colors and the fall was the perfect time to show off those shades.  She had very unique bouquet with artichokes in it!  The table decorations that included funny photos of Anne & Rob  as well as stunning floral arrangements done by the wonderful Bellissima Floral.  Anne and Rob escaped a spectacular thunder storm by having their ceremony at 3:00.  By the time they said “i do” the first drops were starting to come down and the ever amazing wedding coordinator Crystal Lequang was hurrying to get all the tables moved and reset before any of the guests arrived at the reception.  Crazy weather made for beautiful photos and an exciting evening.  I can't thank them enough for having me be a part of their wonderful day.
