Danielle and Matt’s swoon-worthy fall wedding, captured by Engaged Life’s favorite Tahoe photographer Kay Kroshus, makes us so excited for this fall’s wedding season!! Chatlet View Lodge is a seriously magical place to say I Do. The resort’s lush lawn is the perfect home for a clear top tent covered in twinkle lights and filled with dreamy decor.
Danielle wore a delicate and timeless Monique Lhuillier gown with a beaded bodice and pretty chiffon skirt. Her bouquet by Arvo Floral Studio was just beautiful and just a teaser of the florist’s incredible work in both the ceremony and reception space! They invited their pup along for the first look, which took place in a meadow surrounded by mature trees. Simply perfect!
A floral arch in the shape of a circle stood at the front of the aisle, marking the spot where this bride and groom would promise forever to each other. Vintage rugs, glass and gold accents and black acrylic signage were just a few of our favorite ceremony space details. Each guest’s table assignment was tied to a tiny bottle of olive oil, such a unique and tasty favor idea!!
Vows were shared, and then a kiss, before the newlyweds explored golden hour fields at sunset with Kay. They joined their guests for bite sized appetizers that looked like works of art, and refreshing custom cocktails by Petite Street Bistro.
The reception space left us speechless. Greenery sprayed across farm tables on top of dark linens, candlesticks and goblets were all the best shades of orange. The bride and groom sat at burgundy velvet chairs and we’re sure they felt like royalty! The lights went down and the dance party started, the perfect ending to Danielle and Matt’s best day ever. Congratulations and welcome to Married Life!!
