Mandy and Josh were married at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner on a beautifully warm summer day. The wildflowers were still in full bloom at the golf course and their colors of mint and white composed the perfect palette for their sweet and joyous celebration. And I am so excited to share their Lodge at Tahoe Donner wedding with you today!
From the laughter while they prepared for the day, to the heartwarming ceremony, all the way to the dance floor packed with wedding guests – there were so many memorable moments throughout the day. From start to finish, it was an incredible celebration all around. Speaking of the end of the night, they had a sparkler exit to swoon over!
Portraits in the Flowers
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for wildflowers. We were so lucky that the flowers were going crazy for their Lodge at Tahoe Donner wedding. Along with the towering trees and green grass, they made lovely backdrops throughout the afternoon. And I LOVE a bride who will brave bugs…and Mandy did so like a champ.
One of my favorite moments from this gorgeous wedding day was when the flower girl and ring bearer needed a little help getting all the way down the aisle. Those kinds of things just totally make me giggle. But I also really loved how genuine Mandy & Josh’s ceremony felt. There were tears, there was laughing..and there was a big giant kiss and hugs to go around afterward. I truly felt their love gleaming the whole time.
I could chat about this wedding all day, but I’ll end with the fact that Mandy and Josh are such a sweet and adoring couple, and I’m so grateful they chose me to be a part of their day! Enjoy a snippet of my favorite images from their Lodge at Tahoe Donner wedding!
