Deciding it was time to shorten the distance between himself and his future bride, Ed moved across country, from New Jersey to California, after years of dating Jamie. Like the narrative of a great romantic movie, Ed and Jamie’s story is filled with beautiful gestures of love and affection, many of which were shared with us as we photographed their Lake Tahoe wedding.
An intimate wedding at Tahoe’s Zephyr Cove, Ed and Jamie moved through their day with the type of ease you would expect from a couple that’s truly head over heels for each other. With the lake making the perfect backdrop, every moment, from ceremony to reception, felt even more monumental. As family and friends offered moving speeches and congratulations, there wasn’t a single dry eye to be seen.
It was the type of memorable sincerity so simple it can’t be replicated.
With every detail considered, from the coffee mug favors that carried the theme of their engagement photos to Jamie’s bouquet that held her grandmother’s ring, the entire day was nothing short of magical. Elegant color choices, like the men’s tan suits and the dark greens of the bridal party’s dresses, allowed the natural setting to envelop us, giving the photographs the relaxed, breezy vibe one hopes for when near the water.
As the sun began to set, we whisked the couple away to the beach, allowing Tahoe’s incredible sunsets to paint the sky – a stunning way for Ed and Jamie to begin their marriage.
