Katie and Matt seal the deal under a shower of petals during their wedding at a private residence along the Truckee River
by Scott Sady
Katie and Matt got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony at a private residence along the Truckee River near Alpine Meadows in Lake Tahoe. The bride laid a giant heart of flower petals as the unofficial altar, where Walter, the owner of the Tahoe Yoga and Wellness center and a friend of the couples, acted as a wonderful officiant. Katie had one of the coolest ruffly dresses I have ever seen, and as Truckee locals, she knew to keep it short and sweet to better deal with the great outdoors. (More on that in a future post as I have had several brides with 10-15 foot veils and long trains regretting their decisions by the end of a breezy outdoor ceremony.) We wish them all the best and hope to see them on the slopes this winter.

The officiant for the wedding turned out to be a yoga teacher friend of mine. He had some unique techniques to loosen everyone up before the ceremony.
The ceremony ran the range of emotions.
They had a great looking group of guests. Nothing like a bride reflection and a handlebar moustache
An emotional mother-son, father-daughter dance
The flower girl hardly left the brides side the whole reception
