This sweet couple, Stephanie and Charles, prove that all you really need is love and the lake to have a wedding day you will cherish forever!

Photographer Melina Wallisch joined Stephanie and Charles at the signing of their marriage licenses at the Chapel of the Bells in South Lake Tahoe. Their ceremony was held lakeside on Regan Beach with just a few close family members present to witness and celebrate their day. 

The bride wore a vintage lace wedding gown and headpiece, the vibrant ruby color coordinating with Charles' tie and the beautiful bouquet by Thran's Flowers. (Thran's is a third generation floral shop in South Lake Tahoe!)

There is nothing better than a first kiss photo in front of the blue waters of Lake Tahoe and Stephanie and Charles couldn't look happier to be there together. To make it really official, they also got matching tattoos that, along with these gorgeous photos, will help them remember the love and beauty of their wedding day.
