I was fortunate enough to have had back to back Lake Tahoe weddings. If you’ve never been to Lake Tahoe, don’t bother, it’s horrible. It sits at over a mile in altitude, cleaning your lungs with every breath as National Forest surrounds everything, anchored by one of the most pristine lakes in the world, flanked on all sides by the Sierra Nevada. Ack. Whoa, that just made me want to go back up there! Nate and Katie’s wedding day was absolutely perfect. We had great weather, an amazing gathering of family and friends, and a spectacular location. I can’t say enough about the Tahoe Tree Company’s grounds. Yes, I love to garden and landscape, and walking around the place, I must say it was one of the nicest nurseries I’ve been to. And what a great place to host a wedding, right? Grounds that nurture and coddle young saplings and tender flowers until their all grown up and ready to embark on a life of their own. Sounds like a perfect metaphor describing two beautiful people starting a new chapter of life. What follows is one gorgeous day that will be followed by many more to come.
