Wedding in Hope Valley California - Bridgette Wuest - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Wedding in Hope Valley California

Keely and Julian celebrated their Wedding in Hope Valley California this Spring, and it was nothing short than beautiful. They got ready in the most beautiful airbnb in Lake Tahoe, had a first look and shared their vows, explored Hope Valley, said I do, and celebrated the night away with their closest friends and family.


These two met in college 11 years ago now and she told me it still feels like yesterday!! K & J wanted a low-key, intimate and nature filled wedding day, and wanted candids of them enjoying time with each other and their family. They got engaged in Tahoe November 2020 so Tahoe is really special! One of the most fun surprises of the day was that they vlogged their wedding day– so fun?! I’ll have to link the vlog back here once they publish it.

“We love Tahoe, it’s so beautiful (and not far from home). We got engaged in South Lake in November 2020 and felt like it was the perfect place to tie the knot. We scoped out a few spots and picked Hope Valley (technically not South Lake but still) and loved the river and the greens/and blues. We also liked that it’s so big so we know we won’t have a hard time finding privacy (even on a Saturday in May). Also, Julian’s parents were married at Emerald Bay ~35 years ago…

… We selected you because we wanted someone who specialized in the area and would know any tips and tricks. We felt confident after looking over your website and instagram (your stories made us feel comfortable that you’re a REAL and genuine person). When looking at your instagram we particularly LOVED the photos from Alaska with the more saturated colors and cool tones while still being warm.”
