Randall and Peyton’s story is so interesting because they are from the same hometown, but it was years before they actually met. Their families were even long-time friends, and they encouraged them to meet. But since they both moved away at the same time for school and travel, it took them a bit. They finally met in 2018 after their families conspired to get them together. They love to hike and visit national parks together, and their friendship quickly blossomed into love. Finally, they were able to get married in the mountains and have a sailboat elopement!
Wedding Ceremony in the Mountains
Randall and Peyton had never been to Lake Tahoe before their elopement, but they loved to travel and visit new places. They hired Simply Eloped to handle everything, and the planner had Logan Shoals Vista Point listed as one of many Lake Tahoe elopement locations. Randall and Peyton were drawn to it because of its relative quietness compared to the other park locations in Tahoe. So, they had a quiet ceremony in the mountains with just the two on them.
Sailboat Elopement at Lake Tahoe
After their ceremony, Randall and Peyton chartered a private sailboat to take them around the lake. They were looking forward to sailing and dining while the sun set, and for us, it was an amazing opportunity to get some great photos on the water. It was our favorite part of the day! This couple looked so relaxed and happy together, and the water looked beautiful behind them.
Because their parents weren’t there, it was really important to Randall and Peyton that we captured their mountain and sailboat elopement as fully as possible. They wanted to make sure that they were able to share their beautiful ceremony and “reception” with their loved ones. We were honored they chose us for that responsibility, and we were so glad to work with them.
If you’re planning your own unique wedding, we’d love to work with you. We love capturing the honest energy of our clients and being able to present their day to them. Just let us know how we can best capture your day!
