Savannah and Nelson had originally envisioned a September wedding crowded with family and friends gathered together in Lake Tahoe. Although the pandemic forced them to change plans, the couple didn’t want to postpone their marriage. Now, arranging to turn their backyard into a mini-oasis, they paired their guest list down to 12 close family members and friends. Savannah walked down a carpet transformed into a makeshift aisle donning a two-piece lace gown that perfectly fit the more casual setting. Her long, lace-trimmed veil added an ethereal touch as it flowed behind her. The couple exchanged vows under a wooden triangular altar accented with greenery and feathery plumes.   

Lush blossoms added bright embellishments, and Lotus + Lily’s floral design stationed golden vases of red, pink and yellow flowers throughout the space. One long feasting table also featured a fresh greenery runner mixed with petite vases and blush and burgundy blooms. Blush pink cut crystal glassware along with white and gold flatware and dinnerware topped with acrylic menus adorned the tableSmall cream blooms were tucked into Savannah’s hair, and even the family dogs were spruced up with leafy collars. Individualized touches created by Jasmine Michelle Designs helped add to the personal nature of their more intimate celebration. Laser-cut bronzed placecards directed guests to their seats, while large custom sign showcasing the couple's last name and their wedding date hung against a green wall, perfectly accentuating the wedding decor. String lights covered their backyard, setting a soft ambiance as Savannah and Nelson savored this small moment with their loved ones.
