Lake Tahoe takes the lead, but Squaw Valley does an amazing job as a mountain wedding venue.
Nate and Stephanie’s playfulness struck me right off the bat, and helped to create some amazing images in the sun drenched mountains of Tahoe.
I really wanted to feature Stephanie’s wedding dress in a way that screamed Lake Tahoe/Squaw Valley – I think the snow shoes do a great job sharing the area’s adventurous side.
When I asked Stephanie to play with her dress, she wouldn’t stop smiling and laughing.
A secluded private forest – a natural meadow to walk through into your ceremony site – I just wanted to spend the night right here.
I couldn’t let the ceremony be the only time we took advantage of this private forest, so I let Nate and Stephanie have a mini adventure of their own after the ceremony.
I love it when people smile – if you don’t smile, I don’t know if I trust you – Nate and Stephanie smiled together ALL day.
I was captivated by Stephanie’s beautiful eyes and amazing hair color!!
Aside from a good adventure, I LIVE for expressions/smiles – Stephanie’s father-daughter dance gave me all that and more.
I always tell couples “one more picture” – I think this may have been the 10th time I had told them “one more” – but they were having so much fun just playing and kissing, I didn’t feel bad asking them to embrace again.
If you are looking for an adventurous wedding location near Squaw Valley similar to this, contact either Heather at Summit Soiree or Stephanie at One Fine Day – these are two of the areas premier wedding planners/coordinators.
