Pop-Up Wedding at Donner Lake | Jeanette & Nathan

“As we planned the elopement together I thought I had missed my engagement moment. Nathan however had planned it all along. He had phoned my parents in Australia and had asked permission to which they were thrilled and gave their blessing. At sunrise out on the boardwalk on a private beach in Tahoe, Nathan got down on one knee and popped the question. I cried happy tears at possibly the best surprise I have ever received. That sunrise will forever be the most beautiful we will ever share together.”- Jeanette

Shortly after the proposal they eloped! The Hytch brought it all together and they made it official at a dock in Donner Lake, where they exchanged vows, and enjoyed the epic views the area has to offer. 

Enjoy a peak of their big day!

Favorite Moments:

Seeing Nathan for the first time in his suit and him seeing me in my wedding dress.

Saying our vows to each other and making our promises of love to each other with the most perfect surrounding. 

Kissing each other for the first time as husband and wife. 

Dancing to Jazz on the boardwalk. 

Our champagne and doughnut party for 2!!

The best part #ceremonyfeels

 “The best fun was to follow in the next couple of days....we told all our friends and family, and our favorite moments have been reading all the messages of love and congratulations from all around the world. We are so thankful we found each other. Soulmates United. Hooray for Love!!- J&N

Future goals include seeing the world together and enriching it with a whole lot of love and laughs.

They also want to get their dream home and start a family.

I feel so honored to have crossed paths with Jeanette and Nathan. Not only were they a dream to photograph…I mean it’s obvious that they are a stunning couple, but more importantly their friendly demeanor and welcoming energy didn’t go unnoticed. They’re the type of people who instantly make you feel like old friends.

Cuddles on the dock

Before the sun set completely we headed to the pass to enjoy the view and take some epic photos of J&N.

Thanks for letting me document this milestone in your lives! The best is yet to come.
