I absolutely love shooting at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe and I couldn’t have been more honored! The Hyatt offers multiple venue spaces for a
Brides can also choose to get married on the beach for a true Tahoe blue experience. Furthermore, the Hyatt Lake Tahoe wedding venue offers the most stunning Lakefront Ballroom. This is a picturesque slice of paradise, and the glass windows on one side of the ballroom offer the most stunning sunset views.
I love the feel of the Hyatt Regency Lakefront Cottage where Jayde and Evan chose to get ready. With their distressed hardwood, industrial light fixtures, and ALL the white shiplap, I couldn’t have chosen a better place to take photos. We couldn’t have lucked out more with a sunny day. Sun is the best in Tahoe because it brings out blue tones only visible on a clear day, and the cotton candy clouds added some drama.
The couple met at Cal state, but didn’t go on a date for quite some time. When Evan asked Jayde out, she made it very clear that she would only go for ONE drink with him. Three hours later, they were still chatting away… the rest is history! As their relationship developed, they decided to take it a step further, and they moved to Oregon. Prior to leaving Southern California, Evan took Jayde on a helicopter ride at Catalina Island. Little did she know, he conspired with the pilot beforehand, and he dropped them off at a private location on the island. This is where Evan got down one one knee, and of course Jayde said YES!
When I first spoke with the couple and heard the story of their proposal, I was worried nothing would top the views from their stunning engagement. They couldn’t have chosen a better venue, and a more talented team of vendors to prove my notion wrong! Lake Tahoe proved to be the perfect backdrop, halfway between their Southern California roots, and Oregon home.
