Swooning for Sand Harbor

Sand Harbor is one of the most stunning locations on Lake Tahoe and, on this winter day, the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains and prehistoric boulders reflected luminously on her calm, clear waters. Photographer Rochelle Cheever, based in both the USA and Italy, paired up with Reno’s Swoon Bridal to highlight this gorgeous stretch of sandy beach and two wedding looks by Rish Bridal.

Nicole and Bo Cassel served as models, with Nicole wearing dresses and the most ethereal robe by Rish, earrings and crown by A.B. Ellie, and a cathedral-length veil by Untamed Petals. Floral artists Twine & Dandy designed the voluminous bouquet with perfect pops of hot pink and Lisa Pietrzak provided makeup and hair artistry for Love Is In The Hair.

Visiting for the first time, Rochelle tells us she fell instantly in love with Lake Tahoe, calling it the “American version of Lake Como.” For this shoot, all photographs were analog film images, processed by Richard Photo Lab. We hope you are as inspired by these incredible styles and images as we are!
