WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO MODEL

FOR THIS PHOTO SHOOT?

Stephanie: We heard about it through Jennifer

Resnicke, who is a writer for Real Weddings,

and thought it would be a really fun experience

(we were right!). Both of us have done photo

shoots before for cosplay and we really enjoy

them, but this was something very different

than what we’re used to.

Mikala: Honestly, I mainly did it because Steph

was so excited the moment she heard about it.

While our hobby may include photo shoots,

there is a distinct difference in shooting as

a character and shooting as yourself. I am

not usually the type to do things like this

as myself and was a bit nervous.

I believe in capturing moments.

A photograph should feel like a visual poem or

dream. Mixing romance and warmth and sweet

country into every image. I Believe in capturing

love that runs as wild and free as the open fields

themselves . How it feels in my own heart is how it

should be captured through my lens, too.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR MODELING

EXPERIENCE. WHAT WAS YOUR

FAVORITE PART OF THE DAY? HOW

DID YOU FEEL AFTERWARD?

Stephanie: My favorite part of the

day was seeing each other in the

different outfits. I know I got a

little teary eyed at a couple points

from the realness of it all. Seeing

everything laid out—the ceremony

arch, the dining table, the flowers, the

gowns, etc., almost felt like a preview

of what is to come.

Mikala: I did end up having an

absolute blast of a time, despite

my initial reservations. Especially

because the team made sure to work

within our comfort zones. Plus wearing

a suit felt absolutely amazing.

IF YOU COULD OFFER ANY ADVICE

TO ENGAGED COUPLES, WHAT

WOULD IT BE?

Stephanie: Wedding planning is

stressful, because unless you are a

professional event planner, this is far

beyond what you’re used to. Make

sure you communicate with each

other about what you each want out

of the day and your future together.

Mikala: Communication is key. Don’t

be afraid to talk to your partner

about things that are going on in

your life. OO

KE TAHOE’S TOP 3 WEDDING VENUES

Lake Tahoe, where Mark Twain once said the air is

so pure it’s what angels breathe, consis tently makes

every “must-see” list. So how fabulous is it that these

three Resorts offer three distinct, premier moun tain

venues here—each with its own unique style, charm

and price point to suit any destina tion wedding!

Northstar California. For high-end luxury with

a laid-back ambiance, nothing beats Northstar

California! This elegant yet relaxed resort is actually

a full-scale village perched on Tahoe’s north shore.

An amazing array of stunning event spaces, an

award-winning executive chef, upscale shops, hip

restaurants, a theater, skating/ roller rink—even a

5-star Ritz-Carlton complete with indulgent spa—

offer everything you could want for the wedding of

your dreams.

Kirkwood. Those who revel in the great outdoors

will love Kirkwood. Off the beaten path, this rustic

retreat lets you unplug, relax, and share the full

“beauty of nature” experience with friends and family.

Say “I do” in a meadow blooming with wildflowers

and surrounded by the rugged peaks of the Sierras.

Heavenly. The aptly named Heavenly jux taposes

awe-inspiring panora mas of Tahoe’s sapphire waters

with the excitement of nearby casinos and nightlife.

Let your spirit soar as you ride the aerial tram to

exchange vows against a backdrop of the dazzling

lake. Follow it up with a private mountaintop

reception.
