Provided to the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Derek Boldt and Mycah Wasenar were united in marriage on a beautiful September day at Tahoe Paradise Park.

Mycah Danielle Wasenar and Derek Johns Boldt exchanged wedding vows during a noon ceremony Sept. 9 at Tahoe Paradise Park. The double-ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. James Weems and witnessed by 90 family members and friends.

The bride is the daughter of Terry Ferrel of Murrieta, Calif., and Mike Wasenar of San Deigo. The bridegroom’s parents are Teri Boldt of South Lake Tahoe and Eddy Boldt of Auburn.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in a white floor-length, strapless, georgette gown with beaded bodice, short train and beads down the back. She wore a fingertip-length veil of netting and carried a bouquet of white orchids, football mums and greenery.

Maid of honor was the bride’s sister, Breanne Wasenar of Norfolk, Va., and bridesmaids were the bride’s aunt, Joanne Marchesseault, and the bridegroom’s sister, Shelly Bailey, both of South Lake Tahoe. Each attendant wore a floor-length, peridot-colored dress and carried white orchids with greenery.

Best man was the groom’s brother, Brandon Boldt of South Lake Tahoe, and groomsmen were Dave Grass of Phoenix, Ariz., and James Ramey of Sacramento.

Flower girls were the bridegroom’s niece, Josie Bailey, and the bride’s cousin, Raquel Marchesseault. Ring bearers were the bride’s nephew, Colton Marchesseault-Sandman, and the bridegroom’s nephew, Carson Bailey.

The bride, her attendants and the flower girls rode in a carriage to the wedding and guests were able to take rides during the reception. The nuptials included a sand ceremony, where the two mothers poured white and blue sand into two separate small vases and then the bride and bridegroom put the sand into one tall vase.

Immediately following the wedding ceremony the newlyweds’ parents hosted a buffet luncheon reception at the Tahoe Paradise Park Clubhouse. The reception had a Hawaiian theme because the bridegroom had proposed on top of a volcano on the big island of Hawaii. Music was provided by the group, Penny Arcade, which is composed of the bridegroom’s father, two uncles and two friends.

Upon their return from a wedding trip to Yosemite Valley, the couple established their home in Phoenix, Ariz.

The bride was born and raised in San Diego, where she graduated from Morse High School in 1996 and from Mesa Community College in 2000. She is an X-ray technician with TMC Imaging.

The bridegroom was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe and is a 1992 graduate of South Tahoe High School. He received a degree from New School of Architecture in 2005 and is an architect with Pearce Design Studio.

The couple worked together at the Cantina Restaurant in 1996, but did not find love until December 2003, when they met again at a Christmas pageant at Meyers School.
