The Hideout’s foliage is unparalleled!  If our couple wasn’t already stunning, Tahoe’s natural beauty was the perfect location for some yummy flower field portraits.

Speaking of yummy — everyone should have s’mores as favors. I heart this camping throwback treat!

After a chance meeting in a train station in Paris, Claire and Dennis knew they had found The One. (If you thought this love story couldn’t get any sweeter, guess again!)

They were formally introduced by their classmates, while studying in France — Claire studying abroad from Glasgow, Scotland and Dennis studying abroad from Northern California.

Stunning bohemian tree wedding cake design - Carmen Salazar

This is the cutest cake I have ever seen! The “carved” heart with their initials perfectly worked into their outdoor vintage theme, and these lovebirds didn’t want to cut it because it was too perfect.
