This Edgewood Tahoe wedding was a highlight of our year – any time we get to work alongside Jenn Robirds – we know it is going to be a good one. Add in the beautiful backdrop of Lake Tahoe – and someone pinch me. This entire weekend celebration for the sweetest couple felt too good to be true. They were incredible patient, waiting an entire year from their original wedding date, to make sure that their guests could be there to celebrate alongside them.
On the wedding day, the bride and groom both got ready on property. The bride wore a stunning Mira Zwillinger gown with a delicate floral bodice that showed off her petite waist. The groom wore a classic black tux. One of my favorite moments of the day was watching them melt into each other after the first look.
The color palette for the wedding mirrored a Tahoe sunset. The bridesmaids wore dresses in a beautiful coral shade. The florals were filled with a warm neutral palette – shades of gold and amber.
The ceremony took place by Edgewood Tahoe’s 17th green. Tucked into the pines, the location still provides a beautiful view of the lake and the adjacent mountains. A close friend officiated the wedding and the couple exchanged their own personal vows as everyone wiped away tears.
After the ceremony, guests mingled lakeside during cocktail hour – sipping on Swedish gimlet’s – a nod to the groom’s heritage. The Edgewood Tahoe wedding reception took place under a stunning sailcloth tent dripping with greenery. Three circular chandeliers provided a modern feel. Lush florals and neutral design elements were the perfect balance for this wedding to feel elegant and warm.
The evening progressed with more than a dozen toasts. While this may seem unusual to most, it is very common in Sweden – where the groom is from. They crowned two toastmasters that introduced the speakers throughout the night. Every toast was special and heartwarming – producing the biggest belly laughs, or recalling tender memories. It was a wedding tradition that I’m glad we were all able to experience.
To our sweet couple, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding weekend. We absolutely loved getting to know your family and friends. Tahoe has a special place in our hearts – and we love any excuse to visit. Thank you for allowing us to make new memories – both in Miami and Tahoe – with you! I hope we can make some more next time you’re in town.
