The plunging neckline of the deep V reigns supreme for Fall/Winter 2015 wedding dress trends. They manage to be sexy and flattering at the same time, drawing the eye the down and, therefore, elongating a bride’s figure. We see this neckline in every style dress and every theme. From the romantic to the grunge, this sexy silhouette will be most popular this season and we can’t wait for our Lake Tahoe brides to don the style this summer. Here is a re-cap of our favorite looks:

Metallic accents, delicate floral appliques and beadwork come with an edgy, rocker vibe of the model’s hair, makeup and black boots. But pair these same dresses with romantic hair, classic crystal accessories and soft veils, the look could be ethereal, light and airy.

In this romantic, creekside elopement styled shoot, Mike Arick Photography joined creative forces with  Dish Wish and Lavenders Flowers to transform this creekside setting into a gorgeous elopement venue filled with romantic wedding ideas and inspiration for your Lake Tahoe wedding.

The photographer Mike Arick describes the shoot below:
I am a huge fan of airy outdoor locations for weddings. With the help of several photographer friends we styled a creek-side wedding inspiration shoot to show how even the most simple touches can create an elegant and stunning setting. I wanted the shoot to have the feel of a private elopement and to mix together the natural beauty of the surroundings with some of the fine decor touches. The furniture was all sourced from my own collection furniture I use for photoshoots. Table settings and dishes were provided by Dish Wish whose collections are absolutely beautiful. Lavenders Flowers not only provided the incredible floral work but she also helped style the shoot. The stunning models are a real married couple who were excited to have some styled wedding images for themselves as their own wedding was a private ceremony without any photography.

annamae photo interview

Welcome our newest Lake Tahoe wedding photographer to the Tahoe Unveiled team. Annamae and Keith of Annamae Photo have taken wedding photos around the world as well as right here in Lake Tahoe.  Last year we featured their work when they captured Butter + Salt owners, Aubrey and Tyler, the day after their Lake Tahoe wedding (take a look the gorgeous images here!). We interviewed Annamae to get some more insight into her background, style of photography and what makes her unique.

How did you first get interested in photography?
(Annamae) Photography began later in life for me. I was always so intrigued by the arts growing up and took a few different classes in high school. After high school I was a little lost and didn’t really have a plan. I decided I’d start taking classes at the International Academy of Design. I was initially interested in graphic design, but after I held my first camera something just clicked.

(Keith) Photography was always a hobby for me but I never took it seriously until recently. I loved when working on missions or taking trips I could document the culture and their life and share that with other people. I made the connection of that feeling with wedding photography when Annamae came into my life.

How did you end up as a wedding photographer, and what made you choose photography as a career?
I graduated with my digital photography degree from International Academy of Design for photography in 2009 and worked with Ryan Joseph shortly after as his assistant/second shooter for about a year. He was the reason I went from focusing on a career in the fashion industry to shooting weddings. After working with him, my passion for weddings grew and I knew eventually I’d have my own wedding photography business.

Describe your photography style in 6 words:
creative, vibrant, charismatic, innovative, playful, and modern.

Tell us more about your style of photography and what makes you unique.
Our style is definitely more creative and photojournalistic. We are always trying to think of something that will set us apart whether it’s our compositions, editing style, experimenting with new camera techniques or the way that we tell a story. When we aren’t capturing weddings we can be found photographing editorial, lifestyle, and fashion work, this is something we like bringing in to influence our wedding photography.

What are some of your favorite moments to capture?
Raw moments, definitely the ones that you can’t re-capture. (This is where our photo journalistic style comes into play)

Tell us about one of your favorite weddings to shoot:
We love shooting weddings with lots of emotion and organic moments, there is nothing more I love when we tear up during the ceremony or grandma gets out on the dance floor.

What do you love most about Lake Tahoe?
Everything. What’s not to love? We came here from Florida for a friends wedding and never looked back. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the US! We love that you can ski, beach, climb, and camp all in the same place. It’s wonderful!

Where can we find you on a Sunday morning?
Sunday mornings start with coffee of course! Later you can find us taking a little day trip to who knows where and playing with our Pomeranian Yoko. We love food, being spontaneous, our friends and everything in between. We always take full advantage of a day off. :)

Pearl East Shore Tahoe Wedding-9

This wedding, planned by Blue Sky Events, set on the idyllic eastern shores of Lake Tahoe, perfectly represents the blending of elegance with nature that make weddings on Lake Tahoe truly unique. The flower arrangements incorporated delicate muted neutral roses with hearty succulents. This unification theme seen in the flower arrangements is carried throughout the Pearl wedding. The minimalist table décor and runner, provided by La Tavola linens, allowed guest to toast and converse with simplicity.

While the beauty of Lake Tahoe speaks for itself, it is often with just a little emphasis, that it can be brought to entirely new levels of beauty. The Pearl wedding proved, that with a backdrop of rustic, forest greens and deep, lake blues, all you need to make you wedding photos pop (photography provided by Emily Scannell) is a blissfully happy couple, elegant grey bridesmaids dresses, succulent buttoners, and minimalist, shabby-chic décor with the occasional pop of color.

Pearl and Wyeth had their Lake Tahoe wedding beautifully captured by one of Tahoe Unveiled’s favorite videographers, Reel Eyes Media.

From the photographer, Emily ~
Pearl and Wyeth planned a wedding at The Fairwinds Estate in Lake Tahoe. What they didn’t plan for, however, was rain. But even when faced with a potential down pour on their outdoor wedding, the pair remained calm. The storm clouds eventually passed after some rain, but it made for the most gorgeous day–and photos!

Traditionally, when the words flowers and weddings are used in the same sentence our minds immediately go to bridals bouquets and table centerpieces. Floral trends, and specifically summer floral wedding trends, have recently expanded their reach far beyond their original realm and into more unique venues.

We have compiled a list of 4 of these seemingly non-traditional ways to incorporate flowers into you summer wedding, because lets be honest: is their anything more summery than fresh flowers? EVERYWHERE!!

floral post header-1 Emily Scannell Photography 

1-Bridal Party Dresses
Over the years we’ve seen trends where bridal parties wear different style of a dress in the same color, or dresses in variations of the same color tone. This summer we are noticing a trend in floral bridal party dress, often the same shape, as seen in this image, but in different colors of the same floral scheme. We love this trend for your summer wedding!

2- Hanging Décor
We gravitated toward this beautiful summer floral wedding décor specifically because of the simple, mostly white table centerpieces. That way, your eye is immediately drawn to the hanging flower arrangements. By hanging your flowers from the ceiling you are able to incorporate more color than you originally thought possible, without being too overwhelming.

3-Floral Hair Pieces
This flower hairpiece is a new take on the ever-popular floral crown. We especially love the idea of having the bridal party wear their bouquets in the hair, rather than carrying them down the aisle.

4- Invitations
The beauty of using a floral invitation theme is that each element of your invitation can have many or as few flowers as you want. We practically loved this invitation set because they were able to use the floral theme without going overboard. For example, the RSVP cards have only a few floral notes, while the event invitation and envelope are stunning and loaded with beautiful pink flowers.

Earl Grey Arnold Palmer
