Barbara & Daniel / by Laura Reaney

Barbara and Daniel's wedding was so fun for me to photograph for so many different reasons. First and foremost was that Barbara and Daniel were so nice to work for; very happy, positive and easy-going. Second, the location (Tahoe-Donner Golf Club) was beautiful and they also made time the day after their wedding to get dressed up again and go to Tahoe for some more photos. After-wedding photo shoots are great if you want photos in a different location or if there isn't enough time on your wedding day for the quality of photos you want. But my favorite thing about Daniel and Barbara's wedding was the toasts. To me, the toasts are the things that mean the most at weddings. It's the time for friends and family to share memories, stories and to share their love and support for the couple as they begin a new life together. The speeches at Barbara and Daniel's wedding were funny, moving and really made the wedding so special and meaningful.
