Sprinkles, a whole lot of DIY, and a day filled with love and laughter is what happened for Mike and Angie on their wedding day. They were married last month at The Gatekeepers Museum in North Lake Tahoe. It is a beautiful place tucked away with gorgeous views of the lake. They rented a house for each of them for family and friends so they could get ready separatly. I can not wait to hear what you think of their gorgeous wedding and all the fun and emotion filled moments below. Thanks so much Angie and Mike for trusting us with telling your love story. I will always love the Gatekeepers Museum now!Gatekeepers Museum Wedding 007 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 008 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 011 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 012 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 016 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 017 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 018 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 019 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 020 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 023 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 025 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 026 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 027 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 028 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 029 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 030 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 031 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 032 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 033 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 034 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 035 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 036 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 037 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 038 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 039 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 041 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 042 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 043 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 044 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 045 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 046 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 047 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 048 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 049 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 050 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 051 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 054 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 058 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 063 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 064 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 065 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 066 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 067 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 068 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 069 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 070 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 071 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 072 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 074 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 076 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 077 photoaGatekeepers Museum Wedding 082 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 083 photoGatekeepers Museum Wedding 080 photo

Claude and Kristin’s French-American wedding

Ok my lovely blog readers, get ready for the best “how they met” story, ever. Seriously, it is straight out of a movie…

Kristin accompanied her little brother on a trip to Europe. One night in Paris, the two siblings spent the night apart, each doing their own thing. Kristin ended up at a nearby bar, where the bartender introduced her to the charming Claude. The two hit it off right away and spent such an amazing evening together, that Claude offered to show them around Paris the next day. Well, they just could not get enough of each other, so Claude met up with Kristin and her brother in Amsterdam and finally at their last stop of the trip, in Prague. Kristin went home to California and Claude went back to Paris. When for the average person, that could have been the end of the story, don’t think for a second that 5000 miles and an ocean could keep these two apart. They simply could not be without each other, so Claude came to the U.S. to visit a couple times before Kristin decided she couldn’t be without him any longer. She packed her bags and moved to Paris to be with the man she loved. It’s all so terribly romantic. What is even better, is that Geoff and I were in Paris when Kristin emailed us about their wedding. We were actually staying just a couple blocks away from their apartment! We met in a cafe near the Place de Bastille and fell in love with their unbelievably romantic love story. So, I don’t really have to tell you how EXCITED we were about this wedding!

Claude and Kristin decided to have their wedding back in California, but wanted to have a fun destination for their guests, so the decided to get married near Lake Tahoe at the Sugar Bowl resort. It was so beautiful there! The wedding was really a coming together of friends and family from all over the world. There were people there from Norway, Holland, Sweden, France (of course), and Indonesia, just to name a few.

Kristin is such a sweet girl. She is so nice and happy and so very much in love with Claude.

Oooh, la, la!

TrГЁs magnifique! Talk about an amazing view!

Claude and Kristin’s ceremony was so sweet. It was performed in both French and English and getting to hear their story again was wonderful. It was full of many laughs and happy tears.

These of French gentlemen were definitely not used to, as they called it, the American smile, but they were such great sports for us photographers!

After the ceremony and some photos, we all headed back to the lodge for the ceremony.

How beautiful is this backdrop for celebrating? Love it!

Appropriately, all of the tables were named after some of Paris’ most famous monuments and attractions.

Honestly, the toasts are one of my favorite parts of the day and this wedding had some fantastic speeches. I think the highlight was Claude’s best man’s toast. So funny and heartwarming. His comedic timing was impeccable! Especially for english being his second language. He even mentioned how, in preparation for being Claude’s best man, he even practiced his American smile for the photographer. We think he did great!

For dessert, Claude and Kristin had a Croquembouche, the traditional french wedding cake. It is a cone shape, covered in profiteroles (cream puffs) and drizzled in sugary syrup. The inside even lit up!

Claude and Kristin, we feel beyond lucky that we got to meet you and capture your wedding day. You love story is completely amazing and so inspiring. We hope our future travels bring us back to Paris and we get to see you both again sometime! Congratulations!
