Demi + Brett

July 23, 2020

Demi and Brett were just one of my many Covid couples to opt out of their original wedding plans and elope instead! While it was a hard decision to make for many, sometimes the simplicity of eloping can be so sweet and beautiful. There were literally 5 people present for this elopement: Demi, Brett, Brett’s daughter, the officiant, and me! Sadly, Demi’s father passed away just months before their wedding date, so Brett decided to get Demi’s father’s initials sewn into the inside of his jacket, making for an extremely emotional first look when he revealed it to Demi. There was no way I could hold back the tears when I saw her reaction, it was such a beautiful tribute to him. After the first look we made our way to Emerald Bay, where we got the best views of Lake Tahoe (seriously, highly recommend visiting!) It was a short and sweet ceremony, and again there was definitely no lack of tears! After the ceremony we celebrated with champagne, a first dance, a father-daughter dance, and of course a portrait session which had me swooning the whole time. The goal is for Demi and Brett to have a huge celebration in 2021 with all of their friends and family, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to work with them again!
