An elegantly rustic affair with elements of glamour could perfectly sum up this soiree planned and designed by One Fine Day Events. The cute-as-a-button couple were betrothed on the gorgeous lawn of the West Shore Cafe, and with the stunning blossoms of Art in Bloom, and the artful eye of Arden Prucha Photography, the wedding of Lauren and Mike was nothing short of magical!

It was a small class and although I thought he was a cutie, he had a strict policy of not dating classmates. It wasn't until we'd been out of school for about a year that we saw each other and sparks started to fly. In February of 2012, we went on a skiing trip to Lake Tahoe with his side of the family. Although I should have been suspicious that a question was about to be popped, I wasn't because I'd given specific instructions that no matter how it happened I wanted my family to be near us so they could celebrate with us, too. Well, that sneaky, romantic guy had my family fly up to Lake Tahoe so they could share in the celebration. It was quite a feat since I work with my entire family. After he proposed to me on the mountainside in a practical blizzard, my family shocked me by showing up. It was a magical day and it was at that point I completely fell in love with Tahoe. We thought about where to get married and I'm so happy that we chose such a romantic, beautiful setting. The highlights of the wedding for me were getting ready for the wedding with all my closest friends in the world, walking down to take some pictures before the ceremony, and seeing the tent for the first time and realizing it was the most beautiful wedding setting I'd ever seen, my sweet first dance with my beautiful husband, dancing like a wild banshee with my family and friends, giving my husband his wedding gift (a guitar that he now calls Excalibur), a black bear trying to join the celebration, and staying afterwards and chatting with new friends and old friends.
