Dancing Pines Wedding

I was immediately giddy when Ashley and Matt asked me to photograph their Dancing Pines wedding, and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to document such a beautiful day. Ashley and Matt are one of the sweetest couples with the most tight-knit family I’ve ever seen. Their wedding was not only styled beautifully, it was heartfelt, and sincere. I’m honored that you chose me to document your Dancing Pines Wedding!

From The Venue:

Dancing Pines is nestled in the valley of the Little Truckee River, offering one of the only riverside wedding venues in Tahoe. Our exclusive twenty-acre property hosts 150 guests  and provides an idyllic atmosphere for any wedding. Dancing Pines is among Truckee Tahoe’s most unique outdoor wedding venues. The secluded twenty-acre property sits on the banks of the Little Truckee River and can host up to 150 guests.

Full-day site rentals allow clients to enjoy the property throughout the day and at their convenience. And the site’s simplicity and focus on the natural surroundings allow for complete creative freedom to achieve your vision.”

I love that their pricing is all-inclusive and you won’t be slapped with a ton of hidden fees. This takes a major stressor out of the wedding planning process. Their staff was so lovely to work alongside, and I hope to shoot again another Dancing Pines Wedding soon! Also, did I mention that this venue is pet friendly?!

Ashley and Matt

Ashley and Matt are seriously the perfect pair! I loved watching their reaction when they first saw one another during their first look. They both seemed to instantly relax and feel at ease by the other’s presence. I can count on more than 2 hands where I would glance to a far corner of the wedding and see them alone, enjoying their time together. It’s not often couples find the time to truly sneak away and enjoy their day together. It’s no wonder the two are as sweet and loving as they are. They both come from tight-knit families with a loving bond, and killer sense of humor! Because Ashley and Matt’s Dancing Pines wedding was an al fresco dinner under the stars, the evening continued to gain beauty as the sun set.

Dancing Pines Wedding Inspiration

The couple has a love for hiking. After all, Matt proposed to Ashley on a hike! The couple chose table numbers with a National Parks theme, showcasing some of their favorite spots. Furthermore, lush florals by Love and Lupines garnished the wooden farm tables. Butter and Salt catering catered the event, and I love how their artisan bread loaves enhanced the organic, al fresco decor. Brian Hess provided live music during dinner, and had the dance floor full once the party started. As always, I love working weddings alongside one of my favorite videographers, Tony Castaneda Films. I can’t wait to see the video footage he captured from Ashley and Matt’s Dancing Pines Wedding. This wedding was definitely one for the record books!
