Fallen Leaf Lake, Lake Tahoe Elopement

Lake Tahoe Elopement, A Fallen Leaf Lake Wedding

Almost anywhere in Lake Tahoe is perfect for an elopement; however if you’re looking for very secluded elopement, Fallen Leaf Lake will win your heart. There is just something about Lake Tahoe that calls to the heart of adventurers. Its gorgeous views, incredible weather and natural beauty called to Taylor and Aston. They just knew that had to elope here, even though they live down South in Tennessee!!

They hopped on a plane, just the two of them, and made their way out West to elope and I am SO glad they did!! Lake Tahoe did not disappoint them for their gorgeous wedding! It was a magical day full of all the most gorgeous things! Everything from the gorgeous sunset, their perfect mini wedding cake, and those gorgeous flowers from Twine & Dandy (my favorite) it was pure perfection! Each detail of their wedding was thoughtfully planned by both Taylor & Aston.

They dedicated the day to photos and adventuring around the area, and honestly that was the best part! They got to decide however they wanted to spend their day and not think about anyone else. Their elopement was right by the very cold waters of Fallen Leaf Lake, Lake Tahoe with the forest showing off just for them. From there, we went from one gorgeous view to another. We saw everything from the mountains to the lake to the forest and it was gorgeous!

(I’d like to add that camping at Fallen Leaf Lake in the summer is so fun!)

A Tahoe Elopement Adventure

Taylor & Aston wanted their first dance under the starry Lake Tahoe skies at night, so I knew the perfect spot. We snuck away to Emerald Bay State Park and waited for the sky to light up with stars before making the trek to a ledge overlooking the water. It was truly stunning; watching the two of them hold each other tight with the city & sky lit up behind them, glistening on the lake. It was so romantic & intimate, it felt as though that moment was made just for them to shine.

The whole day was an incredible celebration of their love. Their fun, adventurous, and kind hearts came to life throughout their elopement day! I don’t know if I have ever seen two people so deeply and truly in love as Taylor & Aston are! They’ve just got the best personalities and are total relationship goals!!

It was such a huge honor to be a small part of their elopement! Being able to witness the beginning of their marriage & all the little moments surrounding it was such a joy. Their elopement photos will forever remain some of my all-time favorites!
