We love a bride who knows how to embrace Mother Nature’s boundless beauty, allowing the organic elements of her surroundings inspire the overall wedding décor. Ashley and Matt tied the knot amongst the towering trees of Tahoe - we can only imagine the heavenly scent of fresh pines blowing in the breeze… ugh *lights Christmas candle*. Mandy Ford captured the grandeur of the scenery while perfectly illustrating the intimacy of the day. Love and Lupines’ organic florals found a way to enhance the beauty of Dancing Pines, keeping to a fresh color scheme of green and white. Check out every detail here and prepare to fall in love!
Ashley and Matt are seriously the perfect pair! I loved watching their reaction when they first saw one another during their first look. They both seemed to instantly relax and feel at ease by the other’s presence.
I can count on more than 2 hands where I would glance to a far corner of the wedding and see them alone, enjoying their time together. It’s not often couples find the time to truly sneak away and enjoy their day together.
It’s no wonder the two are as sweet and loving as they are. They both come from tight-knit families with a loving bond, and killer sense of humor! Because Ashley and Matt’s Dancing Pines wedding was an al fresco dinner under the stars, the evening continued to gain beauty as the sun set.
The couple chose table numbers with a National Parks theme, showcasing some of their favorite hiking destinations. Lush florals by Love and Lupines garnished the wooden tables. Butter and Salt Catering catered the event, and I love how their artisan bread loaves and volcanic rock sauce dishes enhanced the organic, al fresco decor.
Brian Hess provided live music during dinner, and had the dance floor full once the party started. As always, I love working weddings alongside one of my favorite videographers, Tony Castaneda Films. I can’t wait to see the video footage he captured from Ashley and Matt’s Dancing Pines Wedding. This wedding was definitely one for the record books!
