As I look through Kimberly and Mike’s North Lake Tahoe elopement photos, one thing is clear. The size of your wedding does not in any way determine its significance. The images from this intimate celebration include as many beautiful, authentic moments as any large-scale Lake Tahoe wedding.

Kimberly and Mike planned this special weekend from their home in Texas. Everyone arrived on a Wednesday and flew back on Sunday. On Thursday I met them for some engagement photos at D.L Bliss State Park. On Friday, they married! The very next day, an early winter storm rolled through the Sierra. So, they experienced more than one Lake Tahoe season in the same visit. Even if you don’t live near Lake Tahoe, it is very easy to plan this kind of amazing experience.

If you don’t want the pressure of a big, high-pressure day, you should elope in Lake Tahoe. You get to make up the rules. You get to call the shots. For example, Kimberly and Mike’s 4-year-old son, Ollie, played a very special part in their day. He was ring bearer during their ceremony. One of the best things about a Lake Tahoe elopement for me is the freedom to create something that is uniquely your own.

Elope in Lake Tahoe!

Do you want to elope in Lake Tahoe? With fewer logistics than a large wedding, most couples plan the logistics themselves. However, some brides and grooms hire a local wedding planner to take care of all the details. That being said, I always offer recommendations for locations and timing. I can also suggest an officiant and the best salons for hair and makeup.
