Raphaela + Taylor | an intimate & snowy winter elopement

This wedding was a whirlwind - in the best way. Raphaela contacted me for wedding photography just weeks before her & Taylor's intimate wedding. We hadn't gotten snow in weeks - and actually, when I first took her phone call to talk details, I was on my way to hike a trail that was almost snow-free. Well, in true Tahoe fashion, mother nature showed her face in the form of 4 feet of snow a day before the wedding. We weren't mad though, because the entire day worked out perfectly. Rapha + Taylor had planned to have a dinner at Garwoods that night, and they were gracious enough to allow them to hold their ceremony inside due to the circumstances. 

Meredith officiated (she's the best, guys - and we love working together!) and Meghon of Love and Lupines created the florals. These two ladies are legitimately some of my favorite local vendors! There was so much JOY in the air at this elopement, it really radiated from the happy couple. 

March 4th, 2018 was a day to remember. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into the day!

These two didn't let the weather stop them from enjoying their day, and man am I glad they didn't.
