Sara Beth & Sam's Zephyr Lodge Northstar Wedding



Sara Beth & Sam: A Magical Mountain Top Marriage



When you get to film a wedding like this, you want to share it with everyone. On this very magical day, Sara Beth and Sam immersed themselves in impressive rustic elegance to join one another in holy matrimony for a lifetime of love and happiness. Surrounded by gorgeous mountains, many family and friends and one very beautiful chuppah, they could not have picked a more exquisite place to say “I do” than with a Zephyr Lodge Northstar Wedding. It was my absolute privilege to witness the romance between these two while filming their Lake Tahoe wedding video, and I’m not sure if words can express just how beautiful their wedding day was.


Lake Tahoe weddings are unique because the scenery of this nationally recognized natural treasure doesn’t require a lot of decoration to be breathtaking. Sara Beth and Sam kept the natural style going with their rustic flowers and simple, yet classic, bridal wear. The bride wore a beautifully detailed dress with lace and sparkling gems, while the groom wore a classic tuxedo complimented with a rustic boutonniere. The bouquets and chuppah were both accented with roses, greenery, and hydrangea that collectively complimented the charming atmosphere at the top of the mountain where they exchanged rings. 


Understated elegance was all around the couple, in the form of beautiful pine trees with fields of daisies in the background. The chuppah was striking with rustic charm, and it symbolized the home the couple now enter together. The openness of the chuppah represents the openness they share and the openness to new ideas, as well as making their home a place were friends and family always feel welcome. A chuppah symbolizes a home within your heart - which echoed in this warm wedding full of romance. It was tremendously beautiful to witness and film this Lake Tahoe Wedding at Zephyr Lodge Northstar.


After the ceremony, the reception kicked off, filled with romance and the sweet sentiment of wedding toasts, traditional Hora dance, and guests celebrating the couple with joy and laughter. Family and friends had the time of their lives dancing the night away to live music. Sara Beth and Sam, I hope that the rest of your days are still just as blessed as the day you took one another in consecration according to the heritage of Moses and Israel. Sara Beth’s Mother summed it up quite nicely, and I hope that the utter joy you brought your parents on your wedding day follow you two for the rest of your lives. Congratulations on your gorgeous Lake Tahoe wedding!
