Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe Wedding, Part One
Chris and Katie

POSTED IN : Destination, Resort, Weddings
FILED UNDER :

I don't think Chris could ever go a day in his life without feeling completely loved by Katie. Her warmth rushes out of her skin and wraps you up into a giant Katie-blanket of love, encouragement, and peace when you're around her and there is no possible way not to feel adored. We are all ok in her presence. We are all good enough just the way we are. In fact, we are all perfect just the way we are.To watch Chris and Katie love is to feel as if all of the jumbled pieces of yourself come to rest because what they have is so straightforward and simple and strong. They love each other because they can't help it. The light touches, the wrinkled noses, and the quick kisses are simply the by-products of their affection and it's their unrelenting genuine adoration of each other that helps all of us feel the honest truth about their love. It's not just good enough the way it is, it is absolutely perfect.Ok folks, I have to be real. Ever since I first chatted with Katie last Christmas about her Lake Tahoe wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, I've been DYING to share it! This wedding is OFF THE HOOK in rustic romantic details with just the perfect amount of refined taste. We were so excited to work with Merrily Rocco of Merrily Wed once again up in her stomping grounds of Lake Tahoe after working with her for Brian and Susi's eye-popping destination wedding at Fitzhaven last year (currently featured in The Knot Northern California - woohoo!). Merrily has got an incredible eye for design, so pair that with Katie's love for burlap and her mom's impeccable taste, we had a recipe for awesome-sauce!!Even the welcome bags for out of town guests were adorable and personalized along with some custom fun books for the kids to enjoy. So cute!Lake Tahoe wedding, Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe wedding, Truckee wedding, Ritz Tahoe wedding, Ritz Truckee wedding.
