Black Tie in Tahoe | Talia and Brock

November 5, 2016

Black Tie in Tahoe was a cherished moment by many! Black Tie wedding of Talia and Brock was nestled down on Lake Tahoe, so tranquil and full of bliss! We were lucky enough to be able to capture their special day! Here is a little about Talia and Brock!

 

Where it All Start

We met in high school. A mutual friend introduced us after I had made a comment about him being really cute. A couple days after that we had our first date and everything since then has been history. We went off to college together at the University of Nevada and then moved to Denver so I could continue an education in Nursing. We have stood by each other every step of the way.

The Proposal

Very simple, but totally us. I always told Brock that I wanted a very private proposal, nothing extravagant and just the two of us. Thankfully he listened to me and proposed in the living room of our extremely tiny apartment in Denver. He came home from work on our 8 year anniversary and got down on one knee.

Fondest Wedding Moment

The entire weekend was pretty magical. We got to spend 4 days with our closest family & friends all in the same place. Being able to celebrate and share every aspect of the weekend with them was amazing. If we had to choose one moment though… it would probably be the reception. It came together so beautifully and exactly what we had imagined. Our band also made for a seriously fun dance party.

Fun Facts about the Couple

We have been living in Denver for the last year and a half while I have been in nursing school, but just purchased a new home back in California and closer to our families. Brock is currently working for Costco, and I am finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.

Favorite Vendors

Of course our insanely talented photographer. Our wedding planner also made for such a stress free wedding process. Our florist, she created the most beautiful and elegant wedding flowers I have ever seen. And our videographer Justin Woodcock, he doesn’t usually do weddings but is a friend of my brothers and made a special exception for our wedding!

A little Advice

Truly enjoy every single second of the entire process because it really does go by too quickly! It is easily the best day of my life.
