Gorgeous couple at their Lake Tahoe wedding. Love this!

Welcome back from the holiday, you lovely brides and wedding lovers! Today we’re bringing you a total wedding treat, straight from our favorite stay-cation spot: Lake Tahoe! This sweet coral Lake Tahoe wedding at the new The Landing Resort & Spa was truly one of a kind.

This couple’s beautiful wedding was as special as their relationship. Dan and Stephanie are adventurers, athletes, and find their passion in volunteering for the youth non-profit Dan works for, Hope Shines. Besides being two fantastic people who are head over heels in love, they sure do know how to throw a party! According to their photographer, Lauren Lindley, the party (and after-party) was full of dancing and merriment until they got kicked out of the hotel bar at 2:30 am! Now that’s what we like to see in a bride and groom’s big day :)
