Seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle, Sarah and Troy traveled to serene Lake Tahoe to say I do with a few of the most important people in their lives.
“We decided on Lake Tahoe because we both LOVE lake life. We love the calm and peaceful feel you get from being surrounded by a big beautiful lake. We love fishing and so do our families (dads). It meant a lot to us to be away from the hustle and bustle of our every day life in the Bay Area,” Sarah said. “Even though you can’t do much fishing at Lake Tahoe and we usually travel to smaller lakes to spend our time, it was the best place to accommodate everyone together and of course you just can’t beat the scenery. :-)”
The most awesome part of the day, they said, was “the 3-minute ceremony that everything led up to.”
Their ceremony was at a private beach house near Incline Village.
“It was just Troy and I and the people that mean the absolute most to us. There was nothing that could have been better than that feeling… (except when we met (their son) Louie of course! ;-)). It was so quick but will stay ingrained in my mind forever. The memories of our entire family all together and the pure happiness that was felt and surrounded everyone.”
She said they never could have imaged that everything would have gone as perfect as it did.
“Not one single thing went wrong. … The weather was perfect. I was so happy with my make up and hair (Zoe Jane salon done by Jayme). Everyone looked absolutely beautiful, everything was right on time, everyone was so happy and present, our dinner (Cocomoes drop-off catering done by owner Maurice) brought us even closer together after a heartfelt day, which was the perfect way to end it… good food, good drinks, perfect company. If we could do that day every weekend just the way it was for the rest of our lives, I think we’d be just fine with that. ;-)”
It was love at first sight for Troy.
“I knew that she was the one for me from our first conversations and I was even more sure after our first date,” he said. “We could talk for hours and shared a lot of the same opinions on everything that was important in our lives and our futures. Since we have been together my life has done nothing but get better and better. Together we have experienced things in our life that I never saw happening before I met her,” he said. “She has made a wonderful mother to our son and puts forth an unbelievable amount of effort into raising him. I am very fortunate to find such a great woman to spend the rest of my life with. Together we give each other the respect we deserve and both put everything we have into our love and our lives.”
Marrying Troy was the easiest and most natural thing Sarah said she has ever done.
“Troy is the best man I know. He’s honest, loyal, hardworking, caring, dependable, and all around wonderful. He deals with me better than anyone I’ve ever met, and, trust me, that’s not an easy task sometimes…Sounds cliche but I really couldn’t imagine a better person to share my life with,” Sarah said. “He’s an incredible father to Louie, but that’s no surprise to anyone.He’s a true partner in parenting and through all the difficult things life can throw at you. Troy is everything a man should be to me and I’m the luckiest girl in the world.”
