For years, Jamie and Ed’s love story was bi-coastal. It was like something out of a great romantic movie, filled with gestures of love and affection – and a lot of travel! This brave couple made it work until Ed decided it was time to move from New Jersey to California to be nearer to his love and to plan for their life together. Starting with their intimate wedding at Zephyr Cove in beautiful Lake Tahoe. After first looks on the shore, Jamie and Ed exchanged vows with the sun glistening off the lake behind them, moving through the day with the joy and ease of a couple that is truly head over heels for one another.
Jamie was radiant in her strapless A-line gown with its lace overlay and sparkling beaded belt. She finished her look with vintage inspired accessories and a delicate fingertip veil and carried her grandmother’s wedding ring with her bouquet. Ed was handsome in his tan suit and beige tie, the perfect look for a waterfront wedding. Tables inside the tented reception space were decked out with crisp white linens and gold chargers and floral wreath centerpieces of pink and white with greenery accents encircled white lanterns. Strung Edison lights were hung above the space to cast a romantic glow over the dance floor and sparkling chandeliers completed the decor. Guests were given favors that featured a “Lake Tahoe” coffee mug in the theme of Jamie and Ed’s engagement photos. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when family and friends offered moving speeches and well-wishes to the newlyweds and as the sun set over the lake, Jamie and Ed snuck outside to get some gorgeous couple’s portraits. Congratulations Jamie and Ed!
