Lindsay and Dax’s wedding photography at the Resort at Squaw Creek

April 11 dawned sunny and clear in Lake Tahoe, but the bride and groom-to-be must have been sweating the stormy days leading up to it. Then again, maybe not. Dax and Lindsay were a fun and laid-back couple who really didn’t seem to be sweating any of the details of their wedding day.  Scott met Lindsay a little earlier than scheduled at the Resort at Squaw Creek, since they came in from Texas and he had not yet had a chance to meet them. She was happy and relaxed as they chatted while she put on her makeup. Lindsay and Dax like to play and they like to travel and they wanted their wedding photographs to reflect their personalities. They really wanted to concentrate on the candid moments of their wedding day and have fun with the minimal posed portraits we decided to do. Their ceremony was a nice winter wedding outdoors on the spa deck at the Resort at Squaw Creek. The golf course and surroundings were covered with snow, but the Resort at Squaw Creek had added a fireplace to the spa deck where their intimate wedding party and guests could keep warm while having cocktails. Their wedding photography flowed around their ceremony and then we took the families and wedding party away from some quick wedding portraits during the cocktail hour. The couple chose Lake Tahoe for their destination wedding because it has a little something for all the guests, even during the winter months. The bride and groom were looking forward to getting a little riding in at the resort before heading off to Croatia for their honeymoon.

Dax and Lindsay laughed a lot during their ceremony. Obviously they were enjoying the moment and not too nervious.

Since there was snow all over the grounds still, we spent a few minutes roaming the grounds of the resort looking for unique places to take their wedding portraits.

Lindsay's maid of honor was from Germany, where maid's of honor do not exist. So she had a little handbook to help her out.

Though their wedding was small, Ty from North Shore Entertainment kept them dancing during the reception.

What a nice way to finish the evening, relaxing after their Squaw Creek wedding on the bar's upper deck with a glass of champaign. They had no problem geting into character for these pictures, since they said that is probably what they would be doing anyhow if they weren't getting married at the time.
