Wedding Inspiration: A Barefoot Affair in Emerald Bay


Kevin and Loni met three years ago through Loni's roommate. They both love to escape the busy city and head to Lake Tahoe on the weekends to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. On one of their trips up to South Lake Tahoe, they decided it would be wonderful to get married barefoot on the sand in Emerald Bay.

They live in San Francisco with their golden retriever, Sierra, who is their biggest joy and was even a part of the wedding walking down the aisle in her big blue ribbon to match Loni's.

The wedding was very much a DIY event. Loni and her friends made most of the decorations including the cute burlap signs and table runners. They had a super cute candy table full of all their favorite sweets for guests to fill up in their burlap bags to take home as gifts. The cake was absolutely beautiful topped with lovebirds and plated on a big wooden board to match the Tahoe trees.

Loni wore a beautiful Lian Carlo dress with detailed lace and a thick blue ribbon around the waist. So chic! Her make up was done perfectly natural for a summer wedding on the sand by the talented Annie Miller from Benefit Cosmetics.
