C&T - A Perfect Mountain Wedding... Snow Included!

Tim & ChelleTim and Chelle's wedding was nothing short of amazing! Not only are they a beautiful and stylish couple that knows how to party but they also are great friends of ours. And to top it off... It snowed! And snow makes everything better. :) And seeing that their wedding was in Lake Arrowhead, California in late April, this was really nothing short of a miracle. It never really snows a considerable amount down here past March. And not only did it snow two days before the wedding, by the day of the wedding it was sunny and 72 degrees! Their wedding was a perfect mountain wedding. But it wasn't just fate that blessed them, they put in their fair share of blood, sweat and tears. Nearly everything was handmade by them or the girls in their wedding party. Yet through it all Chelle and Tim were always cool, considerate and totally excited about their wedding day. I wish every bride and groom could be the same. :)
Tim & ChelleI loved their cake table so much! Especially the "LOVE" letters hanging above it.
Tim & ChelleTheir invitations were all cut out by hand! And they had close to 150 guests! The birds and birdcage design was really cool!
Tim & ChelleTheir colors were blues and yellows. Tim wore a navy blue suit and Chelle wore a lovely ivory colored dress with a soft lace design.

Tim & ChelleTheir favors were little tin candles with their guests' names on them and their table numbers on the top. Loved the old ladders. Used more engagement photos on these as well!
