beach wedding ideas

This month my family traveled to beautiful Lake Tahoe to attend my brother’s destination wedding. They were married on the beach at 5:30. It was a beautiful ceremony and the setting was fantastic. My brother wore a khaki suit instead of traditional black and I have to say for an outdoor wedding it was perfect.
