“It's hard to pin down our favorite moments because the entire day was so perfect. We felt like we were in the most beautiful place surrounded by all of our favorite people in the world. We felt so much love and joy throughout the day and it exceeded all our expectations. One of the stand out moments for us was my dad's speech -- we were both surprised and touched by how emotional he was and by the sweet words he had for us both, as individuals and as a couple. It was honestly just a magical, incredible day overall and we wish we could re-live it over and over again.” - S&S
Samantha and Steven's wedding was one for the books. Their connection was so much fun to document. Their friends and family were so welcoming. The location was beautiful (Twenty Mile House has to be one of the top venues in the area). The light was phenomenal. Just everything about it was perfect.

Future plans: “As of now, we're in a bit of a transitional period in life since Steven is about to begin a teacher credentialing program and I will soon be applying to radiology technician programs, so our main goal is for both of us to successfully complete our programs and to move back down to San Luis Obispo in the near future, since that is home to us and it is where all of our closest friends are, whom we really miss.” - S&S

Honeymoon plans: “We decided to go on our honeymoon a little later so we have time to chill out before the school year (and our jobs) get started, so this October, we will be going on a trip to New Orleans, Nashville, and Savannah, Georgia. Neither of us have spent any time in the southern states and we are so excited to do some exploring in each of those cities and to eat lots and lots of delicious food!” -S&S
Love note to friends and family from the Samantha and Steven: “Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us. It was truly the best day of our lives and that was because of every single person who joined us and showed us so much love and support. We felt so celebrated and loved and had the greatest time spending the day with all of our favorite people and dancing our butts off. We love you guys SO MUCH!” -S&S
Other Wedding Details:
Wedding Venue: Samantha and Steven had their wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in California- Twenty Mile House. I can't stop recommending Twenty Mile House. Definitely give it a tour if your looking for venues in the Lake Tahoe area. The short drive is absolutely worth it. Twenty Mile House is located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, just a few miles from Graeagle, California (an hour from Lake Tahoe and Reno).
