I love looking back at weddings from the recent summer. Kathryn and Christopher are the sweetest couple that just make you fall head over heels in love with love! They were married at the Fitzhaven Estate in August on a somewhat precarious day. The forecast predicted blue skies and high temperatures…we received dark looming clouds, wind, and a few rain drops. You just never know what to expect here in Tahoe, but nothing could damper these lovebird’s special day!
The theme was a garden party with pops of bright yellows and navy blues. Blue and white checked linens covered the dinner tables, flower pots that are now planted in their garden were used for centerpieces, yellow and blue pashminas kept the ladies wamr, and yellow parasols were provided to protect the guests from sun… but actually protected them from a few rain drops!
Kathryn and Christopher didn’t want a traditional wedding, so we played with the food, entertainment, and setup to provide various levels of excitement. Kathryn’s brother offiiciated a profound, beautiful, and emotional service. After the service, guest’s quickly wiped their eyes to start enjoying the festivities. Bocce ball, horse shoes, and a photo booth accompanied by various oversized props provided endless entertainment! Dinner was a huge priority for the bride and groom, so to remove the old theory that all wedding food is the same boring steak and fish, we worked with the catering company to serve something totally unique to weddings – A Groumet Burger Bar! A large chalkboard detailed the various options for this yummy meal. Guest’s were ecstatic and commented on how perfectly the meal complimented the wedding and the couple’s personalities.
After the bride and groom impressed us all with their perfectly choreogrpahed first dance, Chapin from We Ain’t Saints kept everyone boogying on the dance floor all night long!
