Truckee River Styled Shoot 

This elegant elopement styled shoot by Audere Events and Gagewood Photographywas shot right in the middle of the Truckee River, just outside of Squaw Valley. The seasonal change inspired a moody atmosphere, while staying true to Tahoe’s natural elements. Surrounded by calm shallow waters and towering pine trees swallowed in moss, the natural fall elements could not have been more perfect for this stunning styled shoot. Tables dressed in rich velvet textures were paired with upholstered chairs in creamy ivory fabrics to create a romantic aesthetic. The dining table was purposely set with mismatched china, organic napkins from Silk + Willow and metallic elements. Organic garden inspired florals came in jewel tones and metallic vessels while taper candles with brass candlesticks and place cards with hand calligraphy helped to complete the overall look.

A farm-to-table inspired charcuterie display held an assortment of treats such as fresh cheeses and a gourmet meat selection and also housed a tiered dessert display with chocolate ganache tarts, miniature strawberry shortcakes and blueberry parfaits. A rustic industrial bar cart was paired with the food table to complete the look with an assortment of eclectic wines, unique liquors, and mismatched glassware. The lounge area featured ivory upholstery, velvet throw pillows and a stunning taupe sheepskin throw which matched the brides moody style and accents of fur. The whole shoot was stunning and beautifully done, view the gallery below for some gorgeous wedding inspiration.
