We wrapped up the month of June with 6 weddings!  Some were preplanned, and some were last minute.  It happens like that sometimes.  Like the guy who called me one morning and asked, "Do you accept walk-ins?"  I replied, "well, I would if I had a place to walk into, but we are location only."  I went on to explain to him that I certainly could do a last minute wedding, but that my "chapel" was wherever he wanted to get married, not a brick and mortar permanent location.  We set the wedding for later that afternoon, and it was wonderful.  No photos though.

Unlike Gordon, who although he was planning to elope, wanted a bit more lead time and photos.  He called a few weeks before the wedding, wanted the Elopement Special, and said he wanted a religious ceremony.  I got a bit more information from him, while fiance Sairie, participated in the background of the call.  I was already getting a sense of the connection between these two and suspected this might be a fun wedding.

Sure enough, we showed up at the appointed time and place to find a huge presence in Gordon, a serene presence in Sairie, and both of them exhibiting a sense of  humor.

I told Gordon that he reminded me of John Wayne and he said, "I get that a lot."

It was a beautiful day for a wedding!  Here are some of the photos, I hope you enjoy them.

Daniella and Fernando called us when they decided they wanted to get married on their tenth anniversary.  They wanted an intimate wedding and were planning on having just one guest.  We scheduled the wedding for a lovely evening in the spring, at Logan Shoals Vista Point. They had a ceremony with no rings, but they did ask to have a sand ceremony incorporated in, as well as a mention of the 4 elements:  air, fire, water and earth.  I had fun calling in the elements and directions as part of the ceremony.

It is always beautiful out there, but this was extraordinary.

Elizabeth and Marc came to us wanting an intimate elopement in Lake Tahoe.  Family would have meant a very large wedding, and while they love their family, they preferred to experience the intimacy of an elopement and have a reception with the family later.  They wanted a religious ceremony, and, luckily, didn't care what the weather was!  Elizabeth told me a snowy day was PERFECT!

They arrived and we got started on the wedding license.....

Then we headed out to the bluff for the ceremony, accompanied by me, the photographer and the videographer, who signed as witnesses on the wedding license.  It cleared up nicely for their ceremony.

Afterwards we took photos and did some more video, walking around the area to take advantage of the different views.  Even though we couldn't see much of the lake, it was still beautiful!

I think they had a wonderful time, I know we did!

I think Elizabeth and Marc made a great wedding couple!

        If you are planning an intimate wedding and would prefer an indoor location to an outdoor one, there are some wedding chapels in the Lake Tahoe area that are available for you to rent.

Larry and Angele contacted us and asked for help finding a venue. They wanted indoors, because it was early spring and, being locals, knew how changeable the weather could be.  After some discussion, some emails showing them photos of various possibilities, they chose the wedding chapel at Mont Bleu as their venue.

We talked about what kind of ceremony they wanted and got some details for customization, as well as their choices for readings during the ceremony.  They also used our excellent photography company, Image Angels, for photography at their wedding.

We don't always need to help our couples find a venue, but we are happy to do so!
