We Did It!

I am so happy to share a sneak peek of our wedding this weekend! I am on cloud 9 just remembering all the amazing highlights of the night. Yes, I remember it all because every so often I would pause and just take it all in...the laughter, the love the beautiful surroundings, our family and friends... I could cry just thinking about it. If ever I dreamt of a perfect wedding, it wasn't nearly as perfect as this past Saturday. If you know me, you know I'm a total sap at weddings and I wasn't quite sure how I'd handle my own. Seeing Sean for the first time made me feel like the world was spinning around us and I was so grateful to have seen him pre-ceremony since it gave us so much extra time together! It was surreal- I have never experienced such extreme joy for a whole week straight! And I'm now crying. 

Here is my most cherished sneak peek from the ever-so-talented Emily Main Photography. Many of you asked, "So, who in the world did you ask to shoot your wedding?" Here is evidence of why I chose her. Not only a great friend, colleague and constant source of photography conversation, she is amazing to work with! Thank you, Emily, for capturing the most incredible day we could have ever asked for. Having you there made it that much more special!

My great friend, Melissa Vossler, second shot for Emily and caught all the extra little moments with perfection! Based in southern california, her very pregnant self trekked all the way up to Tahoe to be a part of this and I am forever grateful!



I have SO many people to thank for being a part of such a great team to put this event together! These people helped bring our dream wedding to life! I'll do a full post in time, but many thanks to my "A" team of vendors and friends!
