Every couple has a unique story of how they met – and Sarah and Ryan’s was a chance encounter outside a concert venue in Washington, D.C. A beer led to a date and then a romantic engagement in Charlotteville, V.A., and the icing on the wedding cake was literally a gorgeous Lake Tahoe Wedding. Ryan’s from the East Coast and Sarah’s from the West Coast, so the cross-country wedding was a challenge to plan. Fortunately, the savvy young couple sought the help of Merrily Rocco and Christen Horner of Merrily Wed – and I am so fortunate to be a part of Sarah and Ryan’s special day. Weddings can be a long day of non-stop preparation and activities; however, I love being able to capture the whole spectrum of colors, emotions, portraits – and the moments with Sarah and Ryan just enjoying each other’s company are my favorites.
A tip from Sarah for brides-to-be: “Remember to take that time with your husband to soak up every detail and share the happiness of it all.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
