This Couple's Lake Tahoe Winter Wedding Showcased Nature at Its Best

Nikki and Efrain first met in college, and they instantly hit if off. Only three months into dating, their relationship was put to the test when Nikki fell sick. Efrain surprised her and stepped in to take care of her. "He is my rock in the toughest times and I'm so very grateful that he chose me," Nikki said.

Six years later, and the pair were still madly in love and got engaged. While scrolling through Pinterest for some wedding theme ideas, Nikki came across a photo of a winter wedding — it was so gorgeous that Nikki was sold on the idea.

Nikki and Efrain's wedding took place at Lake Tahoe in December 2019. The happy couple were surrounded by friends, family, and a blanket of snow. "Mother Nature was very kind to us for our wedding day. Early on we decided we were going to keep our ceremony space strictly natural so we could experience Lake Tahoe in its full glory," Nikki said. "The ground and trees were freshly blanketed with snow."

The pair kept things simple and handmade a few of the decorations; after all, they did not need much to spruce up the venue when they were surrounded by spruce trees. Marie Louise Palmqvist captured the gorgeous photos of the happy day. Nikki and Efrain stood in the snow surrounded by cascading snow-capped trees, and it looked breathtaking!
