It was August and it was hot. Despite wanting to get married outside my wise mother pointed me to an airconditioned venue. It was so hot in the church we had to open windows to get a breeze which made the ficus trees fall over in the middle of my ceremony. I wanted to look glowing not sweaty and I'm not sure I pulled that off. Maybe a winter wedding would have made more sense, especially since I was living in California at the time.
My brother and his wife followed behind me and got married the following May up in Lake Tahoe. Expecting beautiful mountain weather we were not prepared for the sudden snow storm that snowed us in. What could have been a picture disaster resulted in the most stunning wedding photos I've ever seen. Braving the cold my Sister in Law walked out of the hotel to a small stream and wooden bridge to have her photos taken. They were elegant and amazing and worth every second of being outside in the frigid cold.
