Intimate Lake Tahoe Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Not that we need one more reason to fall in love with lake weddings, but this Lake Tahoe fête from Heidi Huber definitely reminds us why we crush so hard on them. Bride Christy is a former event planner, and it shows through all of her thoughtful touches for the ceremony and reception. One of our favorite details? Bags full of goodies for all the children!

I had a lot of fun incorporating their personalities into the wedding! Christy was an event planner at local resort in Incline Village and was thoroughly striving to create her own personality into the details of her wedding at a brand new Tahoe venue, The Tahoe Tree Company. Her rustic and vintage details blended with the nursery so impeccably perfectly; Christy had spend months designing the details from the centerpieces of milk vases and wild flowers to the invitations and direction signage to the ceremony and reception. She had the idea of milk vases to hold the flowers, which florist, Holly Fleur, ran with, incorporating different wild flowers and centerpieces to reflect on the guests sitting at each table. Not one centerpiece was the same!

Christy has a very fun, playful and detailed personality and this is seen everywhere with the vibrant summer flowers from the bouquets to the colors on her bridesmaid dresses to the flowers in the bridesmaids’ hair to punches of color throughout the reception. We were striving for an overall casually vintage with a natural, warm inviting feel.

Christy framed several photographs from her parents’ and Mike’s parents’ weddings to complement the photographs taken by Heidi Huber Photography during the engagement session. The ceremony details were exquisite with the framed photographs, the flowers by Holly Fleur and the vintage wooden card box and lemonade with striped straws.

Notedoccasions offers unique custom wedding invitations, with designs for every type of wedding- rustic chic, country weddings, boho chic weddings, outdoor weddings and whimsical vintage weddings alike.

As a graphic designer, I believe that great graphic design is in the details {read: spending lots of time at the computer looking at pixels.} If you dont know what a pixel is- congratulations- because that’s why graphic designer types exist! {to save your eyesight} Really, though-design is more than matching colors and picking pretty fonts {but I do have major love for fonts} – it’s about conveying your message to the world with a swirl, a flourish, a dot, a pattern- whatever it takes to creatively encompass your clients vision and send that vision out into the world with impact.

That’s what I try to do. EMPHASIS on TRY. I adore designing and am currently the owner of NOTEDOCCASIONS.COM , an online site catering to everyone who loves having a party. And who doesn’t because as I see it, life’s a party!

Custom invitation design requests are always welcome – we welcome the opportunity to make your event absolutely perfect!
