I'm so happy you're here
Kari and Zach’s Nevada Museum of Art wedding was nothing short of a traditional, elegant fairytale. The ceremony was held at Lakeridge Golf Course in Reno, and the reception was at the Nightingale Sky Room – a modern penthouse space with retractable glass walls leading onto the Sky Terrace. Terrace views overlook downtown Reno and provides stunning mountain views. Ashley of Elite Elegance and Kari teamed up to create the perfect, elegant fall wedding. Rich cranberry toned florals by Blake’s Floral Design and pops of gold paired beautifully with clean, modern lines and neutral linens.
Kari and Zach met at a very young age. They knew each other in high school, but didn’t end up the cliche High School Sweetheart story like you might think. It wasn’t until they both attended school at UNR that they began to feel a spark. They fell in love, graduated, and Kari attended Med School in Las Vegas to become a dentist. The two spent time together and time apart throughout college, but always knew they were the love of one another’s lives.
One weekend, Zach and Kari decided to do a weekend getaway in Denver. Zach planned a tour of downtown Denver that ended at the top of the Denver Clock Tower. Unbeknownst to Kari, the end of the tour was actually a planned proposal. Zach went all out with rose petals scattered on the floor, music playing, and of course – wine and cheese. Views of Denver from the clock tower were phenomenal – which made a perfect backdrop for a perfect proposal!
Zach is a pretty awesome golfer, so we decided to have him drive a ball down onto the green below. He came within 5 feet of getting a hole in one, and it was awesome!
“Having Mandy photograph our wedding was the best decision we could have made. She is the most remarkable professional and her passion for photography shines through in every photo she captures. Mandy is warm, kindhearted, detail orientated, organized, and without a doubt super talented. Her photography skills are unparalleled and she has an amazing ability to instantly connect with her clients. She has a gift to fully capture every emotion and every detail and we are so lucky to have had her photograph our day. Mandy is the whole package and I am lucky to now call her my friend! Thank you Mandy!”
