The knot California Magazine – Autumn Lake Tahoe Wedding | Merrily Wed Lake Tahoe Weddings

Lake Tahoe is a fab destination wedding retreat for most couples, but for Erin and Ryan it was coming full circle to where they first met and became sweethearts. Over a decade earlier, they both worked at the famous Sunnyside Restaurant on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Little did they know that what began with a fun mountain bike ride, would start a friendship that turned into a love match.

Their exquisite autumn wedding was nothing less than the best that fall splendor can deliver. From the warm temps to the glassy Lake, everything was absolutely perfect for their family and friends. Both are of the greatest importance to Erin and Ryan. This could be seen throughout their special day from pivotal roles in the ceremony to their 20 member wedding party which also included the 4 legged type – Izzy, their tail wagging dog! Not to mention their grandiose head table seated 50!

Ryan, an accomplished singer and musician, surprised Erin by singing his vows in an original song also written by him. He learned to play the piano in order to delight his new wife. It was one of the most magical ceremony moments we have been privy to witness.

Their stylish wedding color palette was perfect for a splendid September fall day – marsala, ivory, burgundy, taupe, sable brown and greens. Details of their beautiful Lake Tahoe wedding included organic elements of birch, manzanita branches, eucalyptus, pine cones, log stumps and berries which contrasted with the beautiful floral blooms and shimmery accented wedding decor. The knot California Magazine selected this inspirational wedding to be in their current Spring/Summer 2016 issue.

The “Mara-rita” was the specialty cocktail of the evening and guests could also sample Napa wine from mini-wine barrels (so quaint!). Guests were also tempted by a gourmet S’mores station later in the evening along with delicious tiramisu and a wedding cake. The S’mores fire pit was none the less a recycled washer drum!

Whimsical Forest Tahoe Wedding | Merrily Wed® Lake Tahoe Weddings

When most people think of Lake Tahoe weddings, images of a bride and groom next to the dazzling blue lake come to mind but there is another love affair some have with this natural beauty – its woodland forests!

New Yorkers Sarah and Tom were enchanted with the towering pines and mystical forest setting of this private estate. The feel and natural aesthetic was exactly what they had in mind for their ideal wedding venue. On their wedding day, their 100 guests were treated to their whimsical forest wedding complete with a beautiful view of the lake too.

We designed the outdoor reception with details such as twinkling string lights, rows of dark wood farm tables contrasted by light wood chairs and fun decorated chalk boards to complement the natural forest landscape. Touches of lavender, rose and sky blue softened and romanticized the wedding day.

Junebug Weddings skipped at the chance to feature this Tahoe wedding in all its woodland wonder and we think it will add that little extra pop to your day too!

Summery Lake Tahoe Wedding in The Knot Magazine | Merrily Wed® Lake Tahoe Weddings

The Lake Tahoe wedding of Katie and James is currently seen among the Real Weddings in the Knot Weddings California 2015 Fall/Winter magazine but their love story began when they met in college at UCLA. James was on the basketball team and Katie was on the dance team. They started dating their sophomore year and have been best friends ever since.
Their June lakefront wedding in Lake Tahoe was ripe with summery color – light pink, coral, raspberry, cranberry, spring green, hunter green all complimented by shimmery gold tones and dark wood. Held lakeside at the West Shore Café, they shared their vows at the water’s edge and dined later on the perfectly lighted and decorated patio.
Dinner was full of excitement including personalized candy-filled mugs sporting Katie’s photo as daddy’s little girl for each guest. A surprise for her by, whom else, but her dad. Katie’s younger brother wrote and sang a song (while playing guitar!) just for her. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place when he finished. James and his mom danced what has to be one of the best Mom/Son dances I have ever seen.
Their beautiful wedding party makes the best dressed list with the bridesmaids turning heads in short olive lace dresses by Diane Von Furstenberg and the groomsmen sporting khaki seersucker suits – complete with suspenders and bow ties! – by Joseph A Bank.
