Adrianne & Colin first met when they were just young kids as Colin was a friend to Adrienne’s oldest brother. Their dads have spent many years backpacking and biking together and Colin was always around her family. But it wasn’t before July 2017 Adrienne and Colin started dating, a few months after swimming across Lake Tahoe. They had been together for two and a half years before they decided to tie the knot with an intimate Lake Tahoe wedding. A waterfront wedding was a perfect choice since they both love being in and around water.
They started out the morning by going for a hike and swim at their cabin before having a laid back ceremony and leisure time with everyone. Their whole day was focused on spending quality time with everyone who means the most to them. The whole family truly came together to make this wedding special. From home-baked bread to a homecooked dinner. Adrienne’s mom made the flower arrangements herself and the wine was made by her father. Her brother also made a rocking playlist to keep everyone in the perfect mood throughout the day into the late night. Adrienne and Collin even made gifts for the family themselves; watercolor poppies painted by Adrienne and a redwood frame made by Collin, and a jar of homemade granola. With everyone helping out it became the most intimate and perfect family celebration.
They didn’t actually plan to get a photographer, but Adrienne’s friend came over to take photos in Colin’s redwood backyard on a whim and convinced her to get a photographer – and we’re SO happy she found us and reached out! Their day was so unique and intimate and such a joy to photograph.
