Lake Tahoe Spring Wedding

We're thrilled to see the wedding of our bride Natalie to Brian featured on Borrowed and Blue. The couple chose to marry in South Lake Tahoe where Brian had proposed with a beautiful rose gold ring two years ago.

Although their wedding date was set in the spring, the couple envisioned a winter wonderland wedding, and mother nature kindly granted their wish. As Natalie recalls, "It snowed the night before Brian proposed to me, and it ended up snowing the night before our wedding at our dinner rehearsal, which made everything more magical than you can imagine." When it came time to choosing a venue, they circled back to the Landing Resort in South Lake Tahoe, where they stayed on their first trip together. With spectacular lake views as a backdrop, they said their "I Do's" against a picture-perfect sunset that emerged during the ceremony. 

Natalie chose to wear a custom version of our Reagan gown, a sweetheart lace trumpet wedding gown with custom lace straps. Natalie looked ravishing as she joined Brian at the lakefront altar, and the photos below captured the spectacular scene. 

French Theme Wedding in Napa Valley

We love this story of two people from different parts of the world connecting - Chasa from San Diego and Sebastien from Paris, meeting a la Americana during none other than a Super Bowl Party. For the next month they courted each other. During a trip to Las Vegas with friends, they decided to take things up a notch and take a mini excursion to the Grand Canyon without their friends. After the trip and on their flight back to San Francisco, the bride shared with us, she knew he was the one. During the next two years, the unlikely couple moved in together, visited France, where Chasa met her future in-laws, and got engaged. To honor the way they met, Sebastien proposed during a Super Bowl Party two years later.

The couple wed at St. Helena Catholic Church. The reception at Long Meadow Ranch and Winery in Napa Valley was the perfect location for the couple’s American and French cultures to meld, hence the theme: Oui Are Family. Chasa wore Joni, our bohemian lace wedding dress with a capelet with a crystal beaded belt. She looked stunning, and we are happy to have been a small part of making this bride’s vision a reality. Congratulations to Chasa and Sebastien!
