When brides ask us for advice, there’s something we always recommend no matter what their destination is: pick a theme and stick with it. No matter what you want the feel of your wedding to be, if you have a clear vision and strive to execute it throughout, what will result will take your guests’ breath away. This is exactly the case with Courtney and Ian. Their Lake Tahoe, California destination wedding is a true stunner and there’s no doubt this bride had vision.
The couple chose to hold a summer wedding with all the colors of wildflowers – purple, burnt orange, yellow and bright pink. The private lakeside residence was a perfect backdrop for both their ceremony and reception. The couple chose Lake Tahoe for the magnificent views and took advantage of their situation by hosting their entire event outdoors.
Courtney looked stunning in her Pronovias gown and carrying one of the more beautiful bouquets we’ve seen in a while! While Courtney and Ian had a vision of what they ultimately wanted their dream W-day to look like, the couple admits they couldn’t have done it without Merrily of Merrily Wed Wedding Consultants. In fact, that’s Courtney’s number one piece of advice: hire a great wedding planner!
