We Had a Wedding

 Good Monday Morning everyone!
 We had a Wedding!  Our youngest daughter Bernadette married her honey Seth on April 19, 2014 Easter weekend. They wanted a small quiet and intimate wedding. Instead of a large wedding, they used their wedding funds to buy a home and start their lives  together.
So 36 of us gathered together in Lake Tahoe Zephyr Cove, NV.
To celebrate their marriage.
With Bernadette's dearest friend from childhood at hand to capture the special moments, we now have beautiful photos and memories to last a lifetime (Thank you Jaclynn)
If you live in California and are looking for a amazing wedding, engagement, party or baby photographer our family highly recommends JRP Jaclynn Renee Photography  Jaclynn Renne Photography Facebook

All photo's were taken by Jaclynn, This photo was taken on the dock at Zephyr Cove. Its a private dock, Bernadette and Seth rented a beautiful home in Zephyr Cove where they were married by Bernadette's cousin (my niece Amber).

Jaclynn had Seth turn around so he could not see Bernadette walking the deck for their first wedding look.
 It was a fresh clear beautiful day April 19 Th.

 I can just hear Bernadette saying (Do you like my dress) I think his expression says it all.
 Seth looks pretty darn handsome himself!   Both worn gray, Bernadette's gown was light sliver and Seth's suit charcoal.
 Sweet Love! As a wedding gift from Seth to Bernadette he presented her with the diamond posts she is wearing. Bernadette gave Seth a watch that she had engraved with words of love.
 Bernadette's sister Desire' was her maid of honor. Seth had his brother Ben stand up for him as best man. On both bouquet's a picture of my sister Margo their Auntie hung from the stem. They both wanted her to be there (but lives in heaven) so what better way than to carry her photo.
 A moment of peace and prayer.

 I love Seth's face here, these two really are a great couple and complement each other ever so nicely.
 A kiss for luck and were on our way......
 I LOVE this picture !
The wedding took place at the home under the cherry blossom trees that were just staring to bloom... Here comes Desire' and Ben. Des carried the wedding bands. 

Gary walked  Bernadette down the isle in a pinecone lined  pathway.

There's Amber starting to say "Do you take" and you know the rest.

They both said "I DO" and off they go....had to watch our heels in the grass we kinda sunk in a bit..

 I took these pics...can't you tell hehehee. I had special M&M's made in their favorite colors, Seth's color is blue and Bernadette's s green, I added the white for the wedding.
Hershey's Hugs and Kisses were added to the candy mix with stickers I made, and put on the bottom of the candy.

 I also made the stickers for the canning jars, added ribbon and flowers.
 Jaclynn also shot these pictures of Desire' and her boyfriend Paul.
Photo's keep those special moments in time alive forever. What I love about Jaclynn's technique of photography  is that its never over posed and the pictures are in real time and capture the feeling of the moment.

Enjoy your week!

Dearest Elizabeth and Gary,
Congrats with the wedding of your youngest daughter!
Lovely photos indeed from a special day.
The combination of being dressed formal and walking under the cherry trees in tall grass looks a bit tricky but obviously you all made it!
Hugs to you,

Oh My goodness Elizabeth,

I love, love, love the first picture, it looks like a painting to me, absolutely perfect. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and intimate day with us. Sending you a great big hug.

Much love,

What a fabulous wedding, the setting is just spectacular! Your daughter looks just gorgeous, so elegant. I think they did a very smart thing, big weddings are overrated! Congrats!

Such a beautiful bride, Elizabeth. How mature and smart of Bernadette and Seth to have a small wedding so they could afford to buy a home. I applaud them. Lake Tahoe is a beautiful place. A great place to marry. xxx ~ Nancy
