Real Wedding: A Gorgeous DIY Wedding at Lake Tahoe

The natural beauty of Lake Tahoe serves as an amazing wedding location, and it was especially perfect for newlyweds Kevin and Loni since they spent a lot of time escaping to the lake and relaxing together. The couple met about three years ago, and the photographs captured by Ashley Paige Photography reflect their love that has grown over the years. On one of their vacations to Hawaii while Kevin and Loni were walking the beach, Kevin dropped to one knee and proposed to Loni – and of course she said yes! Since the proposal was on a beautiful beach, it was only fitting that the couple chose to have their ceremony held on the gorgeous, sandy beaches of  Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe. The day was largely a DIY event. Loni and her friends made a lot of the decorations including the burlap table runners, signs, and bags for their guests to fill with the couple’s favorite candies! They incorporated the scenery of Lake Tahoe in many aspects of their wedding, specifically the wooden board the cake prepared by The Cork & More sat on, which mimicked the Lake Tahoe trees! Even more nature was incorporated in the cake, as it was topped with adorable wooden lovebirds! Loni looked stunning wearing an elegant gown designed by Lian Carlo. She chose to incorporate a blue ribbon on the dress which complemented the bridesmaids’ attire and even the blue ribbon her and Kevin’s dog Sierra wore. To complete her look, Loni had her hair down in loose curls by Etch Salon and her makeup done in a very glowing and natural way by Benefit Cosmetics. Beautiful flower arrangements designed by Rose Petals decorated the ceremony and reception space at Rockwater Murphy’s Irish Pub contributing to the natural feel of the wedding. For Kevin and Loni, their wedding day was personal and special, and the pictures by Ashley Paige Photography captured the memories perfectly.
