Lauren + Ray's Wedding at Silver Lake / by Sonya Yruel

Sitting high at 7200 ft in the Sierra Nevada mountains is the fantastically rustic Plasse's Resort. This relatively unknown place (and those who know it would prefer to keep it that way) has stunning views of Silver Lake and Thunder Mountain, the latter of which looks remarkably like a sleeping dragon when the shadows grow long at dusk. Blooming lavender and redwoods were in abundance and so were the happy spirits from everyone who attended this destination wedding. Lauren's family has a long history and love of Silver Lake, so it only seemed natural to be the perfect setting for her and Ray's wedding on July 14, 2012.
