Classic details are awash at Emily and Joe’s lovely Lake Tahoe wedding, held at West Shore Cafe and Inn. The waterfront space was transformed with lush Southern-style hydrangea blooms woven with magnolia leaves from Blooms by Martha Andrews. “We knew that we wanted a more traditional looking wedding, rather than Tahoe rustic, and the team at Merrily Wed helped our vision come to life,” Emily says. A mostly white palette mixed with a light dove gray allowed texture to play into the decor, with accents such as pretty white Swiss dot linens from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental. Emily’s stunning gown from Vera Wang includes a beaded belt on a column-style silhouette that fans into a flowy chiffon skirt. We adore her cage heels from Jimmy Choo as well! Bridesmaids wore gray-lavender Amsale dresses that complement the majestic mountains surrounding the water. Dinner and dancing were held on the patio and pier, where chandeliers and bistro lighting hung for a romantic feel. A classic cake from The El Dorado crowned the dessert table, filled with confections from Homage Bakery. We are swooning over these amazing images from Jonathan Young Weddings!
