Of all the beautiful things that happened at this Edgewood Resort wedding, one story stood out. During their ceremony, we learned that when Josh and Lauren first met, Josh said one of the boldest things ever. He told her, “I want this to be the last first date I ever go on.” Like a prophecy that comes true, that first date was a success. In short, they found a one-of-a-kind partnership, and never looked back.
The Edgewood Resort is one of Tahoe’s best locations for a destination wedding. With this in mind, Lauren and Josh brought all their nearest and dearest with them from Texas. Late September in Lake Tahoe can be sunny, snowy, or rainy. But it was a perfect, sunny day with blue sky and wispy white clouds.
In order to keep things a little more traditional, Lauren and Josh opted not to see one another before the ceremony. As a result, excitement was definitely in the air. While Josh and his groomsmen huddled up for a prayer by the lake, Lauren took some deep breaths in the bridal suite. As her dad walked her down towards the water’s edge, Lauren’s long veil drifted slowly behind her in the breeze. Josh’s eyes were fixed on his bride. When the ceremony finally begin, nerves eased and it was clear how comfortable these two are in one another’s company.
It is always fun to see a couple’s personality so clearly in their ceremony. Their officiant, Bill Hendricks, wove together pieces of their history as a couple. It was a wonderful way to celebrate their unique relationship and wish them well in their adventure together as husband and wife!
