Jill and Ken’s James Bond Beach Wedding!
How fun these two were! Ken and Jill had no detail was over looked. All the small touches were so cute and added so much character and expressed their personality. To name a few of my favorites were the basket of flip flops for all the guest for the ceremony, the buckets with flowers hanging on the ceremony seats, hats they made for all their guests and the small lantern bags that lined the dock. I took these pictures so not awesome but you get the idea. Oh and he is Danish so they also had traditional Danish cake along with a traditional wedding cake. Oh and they had picture frames with pictures of them at all the different cities they have been together, I LOVED that! Sorry I am just way excited now that I’m writing and remembering everything.
We met Jill and Ken once and planned by email and phone since they didn’t live here. They chose to have a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe at the Round Hill Pines Beach and Marina on September 12. It was beautiful, this was our first time there and it was fantastic. We loved Frank, he was so great to work with and they maintain their venue beautifully. Our weather was off and on, it sprinkled and stopped a few times during set up but it stayed clear for the ceremony which was perfect. (The bride before got rained on) We worked with all new vendors, Harrah’s Casino and Hotel catered the event and the food was gorgeous, almost too pretty to eat. Our officiant who was awesome was Reverend Sharon Rusk. She did a phenomenal job, it was a flawless ceremony. We loved being a part of this wedding so much. Ken and Jill have a lot of close friends and family and they really really enjoyed the night. When the hats came out that they made for everyone, we couldn’t get them out fast enough! Here were their song choices:
Oh here’s their hats!!
