Tannenbaum Event Center – Barbara & Forrest’s Mountain Wedding
Barbara and Forrest celebrated their wedding day in the mountain wedding venue, Tannenbaum an Alpine Events Center. This gorgeous venue is a short drive from Reno, Nevada and takes you up into the cool crisp air of the Tahoe forest.
The ladies started their morning off with hair and makeup at TresImage, while I had plans to meet them at Tannenbaum afterward for majority of their photos. After photos with the guys and the ladies, it was time for Barbara and Forrest to do a first look so we could drive down the hill to Galena Creek. This was the perfect opportunity to get some great photos of the newlyweds with amazing backdrops of the snow-capped mountains and breathtaking natural scenery.
Their ceremony was officiated by a long time family pastor and music played by the groom’s father and band. With views of the Washoe Valley behind them and surrounded by towering pine trees, it was a gorgeous mountain wedding ceremony. After we took the family photos, it was time to get the party started as many family and friends came to celebrate with these two. After dinner was served by Cherry Bomb Catering and touching toasts were given to the newlyweds, the dance floor filled and everyone was having an amazing time, thanks to the DJ, long time friend of the groom, Kyl “Dr. Funk” Young.
The entire day from beginning to end was perfectly coordinated by Elite Elegance, helping make Barbara and Forrest’s mountain wedding picture perfect. One of the coolest parts about my job is seeing people so happy and surrounded by everyone they love. Thank you, to the newlyweds, for having me capture your magical day and congratulations again and again!
