Tahoe Blue Estate, NV – the place where a million miracles finally came together. Bhavna + Peter had a completely different wedding planned until Covid-19 and the Delta Variant hit. The delays got to the couple and they decided they just wanted to tie the knot and elope! Bhavna + Peter reached out to Trisha of Xsperience Photography and I to make their dreams come true in just 2 weeks!

The night before Bhavna + Peter’s wedding ceremony was filled with pre-wedding Indian traditions consisting of the Haldi Ceremony, a hands-on prayer for the couple. Following the Haldi Ceremony was an intimate dinner with their friends and family.

After a morning fit for a princess, Peter finally got to see his bride! This was the first time that Peter had seen Bhavna dressed in traditional Indian attire. The jewelry Bhavna wore on her special day was hand delivered by her father all the way from India.

Before their ceremony, Bhavna + Peter took some time together taking in the scenery of the gorgeous Lake Tahoe! Their day of incredible views is only just beginning.

Bhavna + Peter’s traditional Indian ceremony took place in the backyard of the stunning Tahoe Blue Estate. While the jaw dropping views stunned guests for a moment, the bright colors and intricate designs of Bhavna’s traditional gown stole the show. And yes, you read that right, guests! Bhavna + Peter invited 40 of their closest loved ones to elope with them.

This breath taking location and miracle of an event are just a few reasons why I love elopements. Seeing this elopement come together and the joy it brought Bhavna, Peter and their loved ones was so special for Trisha and I.

We simply adore working alongside Trisha of Xsperience Photography because she aims to capture photos full of emotions and adventures. She believes the photos should tell a beautiful story you wish you could relive again and again.

“When looking at your photos, you should feel the same joy and love you felt when the images were created.” -Trisha

When you elope, your first dance is anywhere but a dance floor! After a day surrounded by loved ones, Bhavna + Peter enjoyed some alone time walking through the forest and dancing along the shore of Lake Tahoe to end their beautiful day!

with love,
