Sierra and Clayton chose a lakeside ceremony in Lake Tahoe for their April wedding. On their big day, the weather turned from rain to snow, and seven inches later, they had a beautiful snowy backdrop for their intimate nuptials! The ceremony was moved inside, but they kept their first look with Jocelyn Noel outside in the snow, while Hunter & Company, Event Planning and Design ensured every detail was perfect. The day before the wedding, the bride's future monther-in-law gave her a handkerchief to carry on her wedding day. Every woman in her family has carried it since 1904. There was a little piece of paper in the box with all of the women's names, and Sierra's was added to the list. They had simple flower arrangements, created by family. To incorporate the last four years of their relationship spent in Florida, the couple had a flamingo cake topper along with little pink flamingos scattered throughout the venue and tucked into the flower arrangements.
A springtime Lake Tahoe wedding with lots of snow in Homewood, CA
We picked Earth Day to get married. We wanted to try to make as much of an impact as we could, and give respect and thanks to Lake Tahoe for being so beautiful. We did paper e-vites through Paperless Post instead of paper invitation. For our wedding favors, we purchased Keep Tahoe Blue koozies for our guests. The money spent goes to preserve the clarity of the lake and reduce pollution. As far as decorations, we didn't want to take away from the beauty of the lake. We had simple white flowers and tons of votive candles all around the venue. We used gold pines cones on the tables that my parents collected on one of their hikes and my little brother spray painted gold. It made us feel so special that so many of our family members helped out! – Sierra
