Thunderbird Lodge Wedding

Jessica and Matthew got married at the Thunderbird Lodge on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. As you can see, this historic venue showcases the natural elegance and beauty of Lake Tahoe. It is also where their relationship began, they got engaged, and have so many fond memories. With guests coming from all over to attend the wedding, this was a perfect way to share their experience and a place they love with everyone. From the time the guests were shuttled to Thunderbird Lodge via boats across the lake, to the ceremony on the shore and reception outdoors as the evening cooled off- everyone was surrounded by the pristine beauty of Tahoe and got to see some of the magic that makes it a special place.

Dreaming of Winter Weddings

Even though it doesn't snow in San Francisco, I love the idea of all of these snowy winter weddings happening places where it does. Here is a favorite wedding portrait  shot up in Seattle a few years ago. What could be more romantic than wedding photos in the snow?
