Sam and Tim were looking for a great party in an atmosphere that reflected the mountains. Guests traveled from all over the US to enjoy a three day celebration including golfing, swimming, eating, drinking....and the World Cup! Sandy’s Pub, the resort’s sports bar, turned out to be the stomping ground for this party – guests were glued to their bar stools watching the game. On the wedding day, the game went into overtime…which happened to be photo time! I pinned the groomsmen’s boutonniere’s as they watched on in anticipation. Fortunately, the game ended right before the ceremony....not so fortunately, the US lost.
We started the day with a beautiful ceremony lead by their family priest at the Squaw Valley Chapel. Fruitwood chivaris and delicate wreaths (designed by A Bud and Beyond) added rustic elegance to the very 70's style chapel. After the ceremony, shuttles transported guests to the cocktail reception, which took place on the balcony at theResort at Squaw Creek. A little bit later, The Cheeseballs knocked the socks off each individual guest! Dancers, singers, and hits from the last 3 decades kept the party going all night. To ease the hangovers and hungry tummies, guests were invited to a lovely brunch the following day on the resort's deck. A perfect way to end a weekend of festivities!
