Kristina & Ryan's Valhalla Grand Hall Wedding


On one truly romantic afternoon, along Lake Tahoe, Kristina and Ryan said “I do” with the Valhalla Grand Hall as their picture perfect wedding backdrop. This Lake Tahoe Wedding was absolutely breathtaking to shoot and full of love and affection from the happy couple to their loving friends and family. 

With gorgeous mountains in the distance and the south lake bordering the outdoor reception, their Lake Tahoe wedding video was just as fun to shoot as it was to get to know this amazing couple. As a Tahoe videographer, this was probably one of my most memorable shoots. Weddings at Valhalla are exquisite and make the perfect, natural wedding scenery. 

One of the most special moments were the tears shed as Kristina read her honest vows to her best friend Ryan. As she talked about spending her forever with him, even the Officiant began to wipe away her tears. However, those tearful moments of joy were outnumbered by the bold cheer of the entire wedding party and guests as the happy couple sealed their epic vows with one romantic kiss. 

The reception followed with gorgeous, classy touches of romance. Each reception table was elegantly decorated with all white wildflowers from Thrans Flowers, and each guest’s seat was marked by a pine cone placeholder. Photographs of the five years the happy couple spent together before the big day lined the venue on string to show just how perfect they are for one another. 

Within the joy of this beautiful couple’s new life together was mixed a few tears from everyone who holds them both dear. They celebrated in true style with a very special toast from Kristina’s Dad. One of the best toasts I have ever heard as a videographer, simply because it came from a beautiful, sentimental place filled with the same romance and love Kristina and Ryan share for one another. 

As Kristina’s Father toasted to the happy couple “...for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.” Thank you for the privilege of capturing your journey on your very special day. The love you show one another truly is the kind of love that inspires the world. May the rest of your days together be full of just as much magic as you gave those of us lucky to be a part of your wedding day. I hope you continue to love one another with all of the madness in your souls each and every day.
