Twenty Mile House is packed full of history, dating back to the 1854. The main cottage was built with colorful brick and intricate woodwork, two white rocking chairs sit proudly on it’s front porch. Inside is a mix of old and new, with vintage decor, bright walls and modern finishes. These special touches are what drew Angela and Jeff to Twenty Mile House to make it to their wedding venue.
To start out the day, Angela sipped champagne with her besties while Edin Carpenter Makeup and Elise Brodsky made sure she felt as beautiful outside as she is inside. Kenzie from Lokal Salon curled her long hair, pinning it half up to set the stage for a gorgeous floral headpiece by Helianthus Floral Design. Her dress was one of our absolute favorites by Grace Loves Lace, the Rosa. A final hug from her sweet mother and sister, and she was ready for the first look.
Captured by Kay Kroshus (who also did their engagement shoot) Jeff wore a classic blue suit with a grey vest and burgundy tie. He smiled excitedly as he stood in the middle of a wooded field and waited for Angela to tap him on the shoulder. Angela’s dreamy blush and burgundy bouquet designed by Sonia at Grey’s Flower Garden, perfected her look.
Angela and Jeff started the coolest company in the Reno/Tahoe area, Petite Street. Petite Street has three super unique bar options for a wedding or event. The Petite Street bar is a beautifully and carefully renovated vintage trailer. The Derby Bar is a renovated horse trailer with four tap handles for couples who appreciate a little variety. Their latest creation, The Tapster, is a 1963 Cushman Truckster converted into a self-serve bar on wheels. Not only do they have the cutest mobile pubs, they are also incredible bartenders. These two design custom cocktails for each event and word on the street is that they are delicious!!
The ceremony took place in front of spectacular tall pines, drapery was used to create an elegant arch. Angela’s sister walked the couple’s pup Maple down the aisle and also played the very important role of officiant. Angela and Jeff happily said their own intimate vows and then shared their first kiss as husband and wife as guests cheered them on.
Before joining their reception the newlyweds snuck off to take photos along the train tracks and on the boulders of the venue’s iconic Jackson Creek. It wasn’t long before they found themselves at Petite Street with a tasty drink and trendy straw in hand.
Dinner took place in front of the main house. Pretty farm tables with lace runners were set under strands of twinkly market lighting. To make the space more magical, lighting also wrapped around nearby trees and along the home’s Pinterest-worthy front porch. Do Well Events hosted an epic forest dance party and afterwards the couple sipped specialty cocktails in their very own late night speakeasy. With the festivities going well into the night, the couple and their guests could not have had a more picture perfect day.
