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.
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!

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!
