Dreaming of a “one-of-a-kind” wedding in the Sierra? Meet Blake and Irina, your Eastern Sierra and Lake Tahoe adventure elopement specialists.

In 2020 with all that the world would throw at brides and grooms that caused so much stress, many brides sought alternatives to wedding venues and the experts who could help them have a stress-free, beautiful location wedding. The idea of location weddings is not a new novelty. For centuries couples have explored weddings in every corner of the earth. In the Sierra, we see weddings in Yosemite, Death Valley, Sky Diving, and backwood cabin resorts, and the Shores of Lake Tahoe. However, many of these excursions are either exclusive, expensive, or drowning in logistical and paperwork nightmares. Enter in “Elopement Adventures”

Meet Irina and Blake

Irina and Blake, a graduate from San Diego State, reside in the Carson Valley just East of South Lake Tahoe, and are familiar with the destination lifestyle. Growing up in the mountains, Blake loves to ski and climb around the Tahoe region, and Irena is a past travel agency agent who loves the world’s mountain and adventure locations and is a seasoned professional photographer. 

Planning and coordinating weddings in the Lake Tahoe area has a learning curve. But, Irina was up to the task. Learning all she could about permits, locations, and logistics of the area before setting the course and landing their first adventure wedding in 2020. A great couple from Australia that dreamed of a Lake Tahoe Wedding in the Mountains.

Getting Started has not been without its challenges; logistically, wedding parties have to park, crowds in some locations need to disperse, and the officials need to be on script. Problem-solving 101 for Blake and Irina. They have mapped out the perfect spots to limit crowds and learned the secrets of local and regional travel. As for the officials for elopement weddings, Blake became the trained minister of adventure that Ira always dreamed of having.
