Things don’t always go according to plan in this life. But sometimes, it those little curve balls we get thrown that make the journey that much more amazing. For Kathleen and Kris, a little family matter shortened their 18 month engagement to just 3 months. But lack of time did not stop this dark haired beauty and her charming, chivalrous man from having both the wedding of their dreams and an engagement session in Apple Hill.
And so with a little magic (read: mad-skills) by my dear friend Gigi of Sweet Sinsations events, these two had the Lake Tahoe wedding they always wanted. And it was nothing short of perfection! Northern California has experienced some wild and unpredictable weather this winter; and, on the night of the rehearsal dinner it was cold and frigid. But on their wedding day, the heavens parted just enough to let the sun shine in and warm us all up.
Because their officiant was only ordained for weddings in California, Kathleen and Kris got not only their wedding amongst the tall trees of the Sierra Nevada mountains with all their friends and family; but, they also got to have their intimate beach wedding on the California side of the Lake.
I’m always amazed at the way God plans things for the best…even when you don’t know it at the time. Everything came together just as it was meant to with the beauty of Lake Tahoe as the background, the love of family and friends, and the warm sun shining on Kris and Kathleen’s wedding day.
