Rachel and Sean’s modern bohemian wedding took place in Incline Village. Rachel was born and raised in Tahoe and Sean is from Montana. They both love the outdoors and their non-human son (their pup Maverick). They met in Portland, OR and were together for three years before Sean proposed! He proposed on the beach at sunset (he had Rachel's dog run up to them with the ring in a pouch on his back-CUTE)! That is why having their wedding ceremony at the beach was perfect! Rachel and Sean got ready in two separate cabins. Both spots had woodsy tones and a vintage aesthetic. My first stop was with the boys! Country tunes blasted as friends and family helped Sean get ready.

Rachel and Sean didn't do a first look. Although first looks can be the way to go if you have a tight timeline, opting out is equally as beautiful. It's always exciting to see the grooms reaction as his bride walks down the isle. Sean seemed STOKED.
The bridesmaids were looking pretty cool with their shades and all black outfits. Side-note: black is the best color (or absence of color, whatever). It's just the best.
Sean showing off his favorite human (see photos below)! This is basically how he looked at her ALL day. It's hard to describe the look. It's a bundle of "I can't believe I get to spend my whole life with her" + "gosh I'm so crazy in love with you." It was really adorable!
Pictured below is Sean taking a closer look at his band. Rachel surprised him with the band during the ceremony.
This is the look I was talking about!!
Friends dropped of Maverick for a few minutes of bride hugs and kisses. Although, It looks like he's very aware I was interrupting his cuddle time...I think he's just squinting. It was really bright out there!
After some quick portraits with the family and bridal party we moved on to their couples pictures (my favorite)! The sun was really harsh for all of the portraits but with a couple like this and Tahoe as your background-you just can't take a bad shot.
Rachel’s current favorite color is Gold, and therefore the wedding color palette consisted of shades of deep purple tones with gold accenting and incorporated natural wood elements with a hint of sparkly details
The reception looked like it took place in an enchanted forest!
Sean & Rachel thank you for choosing me to document your BEST DAY EVER.
