Family Tears of Joy at Edgewood Tahoe Wedding


Edgewood is one of the most intimate venues on Lake Tahoe. The North Room boasts spectacular views of the lake through floor to ceiling architectural windows while also creating an inviting space for memorable celebrations of love.

Christa & Justin's wedding day was filled with the full range of emotions: excited anticipation, nostalgia, happiness, and family togetherness. Christa had a very special connection with her father as well as her paternal grandparents. It was extremely important to Christa that her grandparents, who were both in their 90's, not only attend her wedding but celebrate with the family. During the very special Father-Daughter dance, Christa's grandmother was overcome with emotion while she wiped tears of joy from her eyes as she watched her son dance with his daughter on that special day. Grandma felt the love all around her as the mother of the bride and aunts share an embrace while they witnessed the love of a father & daughter.

This photograph is still one of Christa & Justin's favorites and was essential in their album.
