Officiant: Rev. Dr. Gil Linsley, Chapel of the Pines
I’ve been doing weddings a long time. So long, in fact, that I used to claim that a wedding couple couldn’t do anything that I hadn’t already seen before. But I was delighted to be proved wrong by Amanda and Gordon. We met at the ceremony site, Logan Shoals Vista Point, where I got to see one of Amanda’s guests get a blanket out of the trunk of the car and spread it out on the pavement in the parking area. Sensing a photo opportunity (you think?!?!?!?) I maneuvered into position to get photos of……Amanda putting her wedding gown on in the parking lot!
This was a first for me, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! I asked her how she came to be putting on her dress in a parking lot, and she explained that it made the most sense, given that she didn’t want to wear her dress on the drive up from Sparks. I like that, logic in a bride.
Anyway, the wedding went off beautifully on a bluff overlooking Lake Tahoe, and then Amanda and Gordon and I migrated over to Zephyr Cove for some beach photos.
It was a wonderful day. Thanks Amanda and Gordon! Here are some other photos from that wedding:
