I am sitting here trying to figure out where to start. The whole weekend at Lake Tahoe, California (and Neveda) was a whirlwind of activity. Pure fun and enjoyment. The weekend started with a BBQ on the lake (pictures coming in another post). What a great way to celebrate with friends and family the day before your wedding. Ben & I were wishing we had thought of it!
The next day was their beautiful wedding. What a backdrop! I spent the morning at the beauty salon with Erica and her bridesmaids.
When Erica first told me she was having a purple and yellow color theme I have to admit I was a bit skeptical but WOW it was so pulled together. The juxtaposition between the wild purple iris’ and the classic yellow roses in the bridesmaids bouquet were perfect. Erica nailed every detail down to the yellow platforms that not only did the bridesmaids wear them but so did Erica! What a statement.
The bridesmaids wore purple J. Crew dresses with custom made yellow sashes. It really made a classic dress stand out. Plus they can wear them again without the sashes. Love it!
One of the more surprising moments was when the maid of honor and best man dropped rose petals on the ground as they walked up.
There are many many more moments I will share in the next few posts. I just couldn’t fit them all into one!! 🙂
