Amber & Derik’s Tahoe Wedding

Amber and Derik are officially Mr. & Mrs! I must admit, I am absolutely crazy about this couple, so I’m thrilled to share a handful of images from their Lake Tahoe affair here on the blog today. :-)

When Amber and Derik first began their planning, they searched everywhere for a venue, from Mexico to San Diego to Hawii, before the perfect place finally hit them: Lake Tahoe. A place that’s very special to both them and their families.  It’s not only where they spend their summers boating and relaxing, but also happens to be the place where Derik put one knee down in the sand and proposed. Knowing how special this location was, and after having such a amazing time with them on our engagement session in Santa Barbara (featured on Style Me Pretty), I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding! It took place in the romantic outdoor setting of Hyatt Regency Resort in Incline Village. Check out how gorgeous Amber looked!

Amber is a fantastic wedding planner based out of San Francisco and co-founder of A Touch of Grace. But on her wedding day she turned the reigns over to her team, so that she could relax and enjoy her special day to the fullest. They did a beautiful job bringing her vision to life. Here’s just a few of the lovely details…

Amber and Derik had one of the coolest wedding parties ever! Here everyone’s rocking the shades Amber & Derik got them as gifts.
Love the matching shoes and custom socks the guys were sporting!The ceremony took place on the beach overlooking the water.Following the ceremony, Amber and Derik made their way down the dock for some cocktails and a celebratory boat ride with their wedding party on the Tahoe Star!

Here’s one of the whole gang taken with my iPhone (couldn’t resist getting an image for Instagram!)

We topped off the wedding weekend with a sunset after-session.

Amber + Derik – I’m so glad I got to know you and your awesome family! Congratulations guys!! <3
