Winter Wedding Shawls for Every Bride

Outdoor winter weddings are incredibly romantic — they seem almost fairytale-like, but, with the cool winds and snow in Tahoe we suggest having a plan for an extra layer to wear over your dress if you’re getting married outside (or even just taking pictures outside).

Here we showcase a range of shawls, featuring everything from faux fur to rustic plaid to intricate lace detailing. We ask you to remember, you don’t have to necessarily wear your shawl during the ceremony, but it is an important option to have just in case of cold temperature or unexpected snow and they really look great in photos.

Romantic Summer Wedding in Lake Tahoe

lake-tahoe-collage-112416mc-720x720

Set along the beautiful lakeside and mountain backdrop, this Lake Tahoe wedding is outdoor romance in the purest form. We’re loving the vibrant shades of red, pink and blush in the bridal party, stationery and florals. The colors add such a bright, cheerful vibe against the blue and green backdrop. A Lake Tahoe wedding is clearly the perfect choice if you want the rustic nature of the woods along with the peaceful vibes from the lake. Mike Larson Photography was there to capture the romantic moments for this couple – get ready for some mountainside inspiration.

Alysia and Adam married in a beautiful Catholic church overlooking Lake Tahoe and held their reception at the Hyatt in Incline Village, Nevada. Lush florals from B & B Designs were mingled with beautiful details and breathtaking scenery in this destination wedding for 160 of Alysia and Adam’s most cherished family and friends. Chic invitations and soft pink florals created a romantic atmosphere that was beautifully highlighted by the natural colors of surrounding Lake Tahoe.
