Featured: The Knot Northern California |Chris & Katie’s Ritz-Carlton Wedding

POSTED IN : Press & Features, Weddings

Remember this gem of a wedding in Lake Tahoe? Remember the aspen trees, the antlers, the sailcloth tent on the lawn of the Ritz-Carlton? Remember the ski resort in the summertime and Chris and Katie’s sweet love for each other?


Chris and Katie’s wedding was a DREAM to photograph because it had everything we absolutely adore – an outdoor late summer wedding underneath a sailcloth tent, eye-popping decor thanks to the mother of the bride and Merrily Rocco, a sweet couple head over heels in love, and the picture perfect mountains of Lake Tahoe.

Well, turns out the folks at The Knot love this wedding as much as we do because it’s a double spread real wedding feature in the spring/summer issue of The Knot Northern California magazine! I’ve been doing a winter happy dance all month long with how much feature love our couples have been receiving for their fabulous weddings, and The Knot always tops the cake as a favorite magazine for us! I’m so happy for Chris and Katie and couldn’t be more proud to have their wedding featured for all the world to enjoy! Definitely pick up your copy of the magazine for loads of wedding style inspiration and re-live Chris and Katie’s swoon-worthy Lake Tahoe wedding at the Ritz!
