Trina & AJ. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Wedding.

“I‘ve had a lot of luck in my life. But I don’t know how I lucked out with Trina. I am SO lucky to have her,” Anthony said to me as we were walking to see Trina for the first time on that cold, snowy day. He’s right…he & Trina are soooooooo lucky to have found each other…lucky to have such a wonderful love & lucky to be married to their very best friend. They celebrated their wedding on one of the snowiest days of 2012 at the Hyatt at Lake Tahoe. And no amount of snow could have dampened their spirits-becuase they were so excited, so happy to finally become husband & wife. Perhaps the reason why they chose St.Patrick’s day to be married was because they realized how incredibly lucky they are to have such an incredible love. Their wedding was a perfect reflection of their personalities & they made sure that everyone had a blast celebrating their love story.

I loved shooting this wedding because Trina & AJ are simply awesome-they want everyone around them to be comfortable & to have fun. As AJ & Trina saw each other the first time on their wedding day, they laughed & their smiles were as big as the Mississippi river. It was an incredible moment & I was so glad that they saw each other before the ceremony (especially since it was snowing like crazy after the ceremony!) As Trina walked down the arm with her sweet father, she sweetly said hello to each guest she walked by-it was obvious that each person at the wedding had played a huge part in her & AJ’s lives. As they danced inside, quiet snowflakes fell from the sky, creating a perfect blanket of winter white outside. All in all, it was a lovely day celebrating the love of two people who recognize how lucky they are to have found each other.

Trina & AJ-thank you sooooooo much for giving me the chance to photograph your incredible, beautiful wedding. I feel lucky to have been a part of your day & I loved being there to celebrate in your joy together. Wishing you all the joy, happiness & luck that you both deserve. With love, XOXO marielle.

I LOVED Trina’s bedazzled Converse shoes…she was smart to wear tennis shoes with all the snow on the ground!

This is why I LOVE when couples choose to do a First Look…it can’t get any better than their excited expressions!

I’m pretty sure this cutie was stealing the show right…about…here…

During the reception, I looked outside & the sky was the most amazing blue with huge clouds rolling in. I grabbed Trina & Anthony and we went outside for a few minutes. I was SO glad we did! This is what it looked like outside…

For those of you who have seen how blue Lake Tahoe is in the summertime, the blue is so much more intense in the winter!
