Kelley and Mike: Martis Camp Wedding

Nicky Byrnes Weddings

Now that the craziness of summer and having my OWN wedding(!) I’m excited to share some awesome summer weddings with you! I love weddings of all shapes and sizes but tiny weddings with only the couples’ closest family and friends hold a special place in my heart. Kelley and Mike live in Ohio but held their wedding in Truckee, CA to be closer to family. When I first spoke to Kelley, she hadn’t even chosen a venue! She told me she was thinking of choosing Martis Camp as her venue and I was able to convince her that the beauty of the mountains and the amazing service/food/facilities were worth not having a lake view. The GORGEOUS couple got married on …

Amanda and Shaun: Tahoe City Backyard Wedding

When I talked to Amanda the first time, she told me that she was a Tahoe local, her wedding would be held in a backyard literally two minutes away from my house, and BOTH she and her fiancĂ© Shaun were archaeologists. How could I not love absolutely everything about this wedding? Amanda’s beauty and AMAZING dress blew me away. This was such a fun, chill, day! Thanks for letting me document your awesomeness guys!

Alex and Ben: Squaw Valley Wedding

Nicky Byrnes Local Events, Weddings

I am so, so so so thankful that I met and got to work with Alex and Ben. They have become fast friends and I’m only sad that they live so far away in San Francisco so I don’t get to eat giant bowls of ramen with them every night. They got married waaaaaay up at 8200′ on the deck of Squaw Valley‘s High Camp. These two lovebirds (seriously, do they ever stop smiling????) exchanged vows with dramatic views of Lake Tahoe in the background. Congrats Alex and Ben!!!!!!!! Thanks so much to all the amazing vendors that made this day possible! Venue: Squaw Valley Resort Planning and Coordination: First Pick Planning Florist: Love and Lupines Hair and Makeup: Kiss …

Heidi and Gavin: Boho, DIY Wedding at Basecamp Hotel, South Lake Tahoe

Nicky Byrnes Weddings

Oh my WORD these two. When Heidi, Gavin and I first talked I was already geeked on shooting their wedding because it would be held at one of my fav places in South Lake Tahoe, Basecamp Hotel! I love the modern, sleek vibe of the hotel, they recently remodeled to put in an awesome beer garden with multiple mountain-view decks, and the best part, they’re all about sustainability! Did I mention there’s a vintage airstream in the beer garden? No? Well there is and it is awesome. Aaaaaanyhoo, of course I knew that Heidi and Gavin were my type of people. The whole day was just so peaceful and perfect. Gavin is so charming and funny, I definitely chuckled a …
