Gray’s Crossing Wedding: Vivian + Laramie
Vivian and Laramie got it right when they booked one of Lake Tahoe’s newest venues for their wedding. Because of it’s location in Truckee, Gray’s Crossing is actually closer to the Bay Area than the lake. But that is only one upside of this spot. At first, people knew Gray’s Crossing for its premier mountain golf course. But over time, word spread aboutPJ’s Bar and Grill. They serve some of the tastiest food in North Tahoe. And their catering services mean you can order off their menu for your Gray’s Crossing wedding.
Vivian and her bridesmaids began the day at a private home. After hair and makeup, we all drove to the venue for the wedding. The clubhouse offers a quiet place for a bride’s last touchups. Most importantly, no one will see you before the ceremony. By and large the weddings I photograph in Lake Tahoe are outdoors. The weather is generally so stable and predictable that you don’t need to worry about rain. A tent isn’t a bad idea in case of a storm, but wet weather is pretty unlikely.
Ponderosa and Jeffrey Pine trees surround the Gray’s Crossing front lawn. This made a backdrop for Vivian and Laramie’s outdoor ceremony. After they said their vows, they hopped on a golf cart and took off for a private joyride around the golf course. While they were gone, everyone else settled in for a drink and some fun lawn games. When they returned, PJ’s Bar and Grill served a delicious al fresco meal. Vivian and Laramie’s vision for an elegant outdoor wedding fit this venue perfectly!
