Earlier this year, Jessa and Bryan realized their dreams of a big wedding was not going to happen in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic. Instead, they decided on a Lake Tahoe elopement with only Dee and Kris, and their incredible officiant Meredith. Following all government restrictions and safety precautions, these two said “I Do.”
Their day started at Lindsay’s Loft in the Heart of Tahoe City, where they both got ready for their ceremony. This airbnb was such an incredible find, it was dark and moody but offered plenty of light and space for creative photos!
After getting ready, they headed outside for a very special first look. Even though their entire day was extremely intimate with just the two of them, it was important for them to have the special reveal. Jessa debuted her Eddy K Beloved Gown from BHLDN, while Bryan wore his custom tailored blue suit from Thailand.
After some exploring, Jessa and Bryan landed on a cliffside Lake Tahoe location to say their vows to each other. With the help of Meredith Richmond, our favorite Lake Tahoe officiant, the two made their commitment to each other. Meredith helped the couple elope during covid-19 by writing a performing and custom ceremony, all from a 6 foot distance.
While changing weddings plans, from a large Scribner Bend Weddings, to a a Lake Tahoe Elopement, Jessa decided to use a local vendors. Her coral rose bouquet was created by Tara at Tahoe City Whole Foods.
In the evening, we were blessed with a vibrant sunset which made for the perfect ending. Complete with a video chat with their guests, invited to their big wedding and a special cake for two made by Westshore Market and a bottle of Scibner Bend’s Almond Sparkling Wine.
