Lake Tahoe Wedding | Snowflakes & Revelry

Just before Christmas, we coordinated a lovely wedding for Genevieve and Ryan at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. It was a very festive weekend complete with skiing, santas in the village, and lots of parties. The celebration started with a rehearsal dinner at Casa Baeza in Truckee – a tiny little hole in the wall restaurant with the best margaritas in town! Just for kicks, we hired a mariachi band to greet and entertain guests all night long!

The following day, the ceremony started at 6pm, leaving guests plenty of time to ski, rest their hangovers, and enjoy a little hot tubbing time (see first kiss below)!

Jolly friends of the bride and groom sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the smooch!

There was never a dull moment with this group – each person was such a character, including this lovely flower girl having a huff! I get a good chuckle at this picture every time I look at it!

Ryan and Genevieve wanted this day to be enjoyable and entertaining for both adults and kids; thus, they asked Bellissima Floral to present the kids with the most unbelievably amazing and magical kids table. Candy, chocolate, toys, and treats galore smothered the entire table. It was like a real life glimpse of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The evening ended with guests of all ages cutting a rug on the dance floor!

    Hello! We just scheduled our wedding for next year in Tahoe, and are also looking for a mariachi band, and good mexican food in the area. Coming from SF, there are so many choices, but we don’t know of much in Tahoe. Can you please provide the contact information for the band featured in this post? We will also have to try Casa Beaza next time we are out there!

    Thank you!

    Hi Kelly,
    I recommend calling Casa Baeza and asking them for the contact info for the mariachi band that they hire on cinco de Maya. This is the band we used but we don’t have their contact info.
