Beautiful Bass Lake Wedding

September 30, 2009

September evenings at Bass Lake are glorious.  Sunsets, water, mountain air, drinks on the patio–a perfect place for a relaxing and intimate wedding.  I had been looking forward to seeing Erika and Jason again.  I knew Erika had been working hard to make the details of this wedding extra special.  She literally hand made all of the decorations, place cards and a mermaid cake topper.   My favorite detail that she and her father crafted was this amazing arbor made out of bamboo and used during the ceremony.  One of the couples close friends from France officiated the ceremony and along with his wonderful accent was a terrific sense of humor which kept the guests smiling. Erika has a wild affinity for mermaids and actually walked down the aisle to the theme song from “The Little Mermaid” which was so fun.   The couple wrote their own wedding vows…I love that, it is so personal and relevant.  Guests dined on the patio overlooking the lake while listening to a fabulous local jazz band.  It was really a perfect evening.  I was so taken by this couples chemistry together…it’s as if they are seeing each other for the first time each and every time they look at one another.  Sweet love.  The couple is honeymooning in New Zealand…lucky dogs.  Cheers!

I don’t know when, I don’t know how, But I know something’s starting right now, Watch and you’ll see, Some day I’ll be, Part of your world…

From the lyrics to Part of Your World, “The Little Mermaid”

    Hi Rochelle,
    The pictures are beautiful !
    I can’t believe it. Such a drastic difference with mine…
    Photography IS an art and you’re a great artist !
    The couple was so beautiful that it must have been a challenge to transcribe it on pictures. You did a great job !
    It was nice meeting you.
    Take care and thanks for the great pictures.

    Dear Rochelle–your photographs embody the emotion and magic of Erika and Jason’s wedding! The locations and lighting draw you into the pictures, with a warmth that reflects their joy and casual elegance. Thank you so much for capturing the couple, the setting, and the essence of the evening for us to treasure over the years.
