Squaw Valley Winter Wedding in the snow

by Scott Sady

I have been very lax about keeping up with my blog posts lately. If any of you read Monique’s post about what we do in our spare time, you might have guessed that I have been in a kayaking frenzy between weddings. In truth, I was out in Colorado competing in some freestyle kayaking competitions between weddings in June for about 3 weeks. That put me horribly behind, so now after a week handcuffed to the ol’ macintosh, I am pretty much caught up and have time to start getting some blogs out.

This wedding was shot all the way back in April. Reanna and Daniel wanted nothing more than to have a small intimate wedding at Squaw Valley, then go snowboarding and take some pictures. I knew this was going to be fun. Monique decided to tag along and go skiing while I shot the wedding. Well as the fates would have it, it was a roaring blizzard that day at Squaw. 100+ mph winds and driving snow shut down the mountain, so we improvised a bit. This was a short, fun 4 hour wedding featuring Reanna and Daniel and their two chiuauas. I wonder what they thought about the snow….

After only a few minutes shooting in the snow we were all covered, and the couple asked for a picture with Monique and I. This one was a real adventure with all the wind and driving snow, but right up my alley.
