Martis Camp wedding for Lindsey and Jack

By Monique and Scott

From the minute we met with Lindsey and Jack for their engagement session at Sand Harbor, we knew they were going to be a great couple to work with at their Martis Camp wedding in Truckee. They were so playful with each other and adventurous, scrambling all over the boulders, we knew the wedding was going to provide us with amazing images all day long. Their venue, Martis Camp, provided a secluded, classic Tahoe woods spot for the wedding: getting ready in the spacious, plush mens and ladies lounges, the ceremony overlooking the golf course with the woods and mountains surrounding them, and the clear tented reception on the outdoor patio overlooking the valley. I’d say there were 3 underlying, and very photogenic, themes to this wedding: Abalone, Machine Guns, and Bacon, or I should say swine and meat in general! So to explain these themes, lets start with the abalone: Jack is an abalone diver, so it was on one outing with Lindsey that he came walking out of the freezing cold water holding an abalone shell that he had “found.” It turns out that he had put the ring in the shell and proposed to her there on the beach! For the wedding, Jack was also wearing a gorgeous abalone shell belt buckle. Now for the bacon:  Jack is a chef, so he also wanted the cocktail hour to include some unique hors d’oeuvres. He had several varieties of dried meats and cheeses imported from Italy, including wild boar. And I have heard about some crazy bacon flavored things before, like bacon flavored toothpaste, bacon cookies, etc. Lindsey, knowing Jack’s love of all things bacon, had Martis Camp make them a special grooms cake, a bourbon chocolate bacon cake. And now for the machine guns: Jack really wanted to do some fun photos of him and his groomsmen with some guns, so he brought toy machine guns for some of the portraits. They were also a big hit at the photo booth!
