Kara and Zach had a gorgeous Valhalla Lake Tahoe Wedding this fall with all their friends and family earlier this fall! Come check it out:
Kara and Zach had the most gorgeous wedding day at Valhalla this fall!! They really wanted a non-traditional wedding that was truly all about them, and that’s exactly what they did! Kara had the most beautiful miss matched bridesmaids dresses and all the groomsmen wore band T-shirts with different colored suits over the top, it was epic.
They started getting ready in the cutest cabins nearby in Lake Tahoe and the morning was filled with so much food, laughter and stories surrounded by their loved ones! We all headed to the main building at the venue to get Kara dressed as her mom and her friends helped her into her gorgeous custom gown by Watters. When she saw herself in the mirror for the first time she couldn’t help but tear up and have so many emotions!! It was so special to witness her so excited for her wedding day!
Meanwhile, all the boys were in the other room taking shots and listening to rock music with a slight breeze coming through the windows haha, so awesome. Afterwards, I took Zach into the forest and brought Kara to him for their first look. This first look has got to go down in history for one of the most special first looks I’ve ever captured. When they saw each other for the first time, Zach threw his arms in the air and started crying at how beautiful Kara was. She was instantly in tears. Kara also wanted all of their loved ones nearby to watch their first luck and be with them for that moment, so everyone got to witness it which was so special.
Their wedding ceremony at Valhalla was a forest dream. They had lots of fall colors in their florals and the most beautiful wedding arch with yellow and greenery popping through. They shared their personal vows with their loved ones as witnesses and did the damn thing and said I do!!
The rest of the evening was an absolute party and celebration for Kara and Zach and this new journey they are about to embark on. They gave such meaningful speeches, the bride iced all the groomsmen which was hilarious haha, and Zach gave a personal speech to all of Kara‘s family. He thanked them and showed so much love and respect for her family for bringing her into this world and raising her the way that they did. It was so sweet.
Kara and Zach’s wedding at Valhalla was such a special one! They danced the night away and truly had the best wedding day of their dreams!! I’m so thankful to have been a part of all of it and take photos of the best day of their lives for them to remember forever! Congrats Kara and Zach, love y’all so much!
