Break out your bell bottoms because it’s time to boogie on the beach! Vintage lovers are going to fall head over platform heels for this Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration. Real life couple Teja + Danny teamed up with Velvet Armoire Floral + Event Design to design a special and intimate setup on the shores of Incline Village in Lake Tahoe, California. With not one, but three bridal looks, a colorful dried floral installation, and of course, disco balls galore, this inspo will give you all the disco fever! Stephanie, from Velvet Armoire, shares:
The style of this photoshoot was first inspired by the crystal blue waters + epic views of Lake Tahoe, California. What first started as a simple beach elopement quickly escalated into a vintage, disco dream! We found the most perfect abandoned lifeguard stand which acted as the canvas for this fun and colorful design. We started with the most epic dried floral installation, and added a few disco balls and a velvet captain hat custom designed by Glitz Girls UK. Then, last minute, we threw in a thrifted stereo and grabbed a bottle of Don Julio (in the color palette of course). From there, we took over the lifeguard stand and made magic!
Get ready for the rad images that Autumn Marie Photography captured from the day! Let’s go!
This Vintage Lifeguard Stand is the Perfect Backdrop!
Bet you never considered a lifeguard stand as your wedding ceremony backdrop! Add some amazing florals to the already vintage vibes of the structure and you’ve got the perfect laid back party spot!
We aren’t worthy of this stunning dried floral installation designed by Velvet Armoire!! The muted rainbow effect is perfection!
Lake Tahoe Wedding at Sunset
It’s obvious that T + D have serious style, but this Dan Jones Label jumpsuit from Moonlight Lace Boutique just ties the whole look of the day together! Jumpsuits are perfect for brides that are looking for a funky and different look for the big day!
Ok… forget the classic veil. A bedazzled bridal hat like this one from Glitz Girls UK is our new favorite bridal accessory! Shout out to Haley Nichole for styling T’s hair and makeup to perfection!
Dreamy Lake Tahoe Wedding Style
Our advice for brides planning a wedding is – you don’t need a lot to make a big impact! One epic floral installation can completely transform the vibe, especially if you’re eloping somewhere scenic. Rather than trying to do it all, focus on the most important part of your day, and go all in on it.
