Best of B&B 2016 Award


Turns out it is not only award season in Hollywood! Borrowed and Blue is one of our favorite wedding blogs that is designed to inspire and guide brides and grooms from across the US in 66 specific markets. Every year they come out with the only exclusively vendor-voted wedding industry awards. It's so unique (and fun!) that B&B allows the vendors themselves to hand-pick their very favorite companies to work alongside. We believe that your vendor team needs to be comprised of people who are not only talented and fit nicely into your budget, but that they are also a joy to work with! For example, it's difficult to get a sense of a photographers communication style if you are only viewing images in their online gallery, but it's absolutely essential to have the person capturing all your precious moments be someone who you feel comfortable interacting with - not to mention smooching and crying in front of.

At One Fine Day Events we strive to ensure that the dream team we help you build is comprised of individuals that make you smile. And it makes us smile that our colleagues have chosen us for this prestigious award. We are honored to receive an award for being one of the top three Best Wedding Planners in Lake Tahoe.

Best Of B&B 2016 - Lake Tahoe 


Tulips for Today | Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration

Tulips are the perfect sign of Spring with blooms sprouting out and about everywhere! Tulips are such great flowers because they are fresh, beautiful, in season all year round, come in a variety of reliable colors, and are cost effective - what's not to love?

Unbelievable Orchids | Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration

Orchids are one of those incredible flower varietals. They have the ability to be structured or soft, colorful or stark white, and present an air of tropical luxury like no other - not to mention they are gorgeous! I particularly love the Cattleya orchid which tends to be a little softer and less structured than other types.

Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration | Summer Wildflowers

I have to admit, I'm somewhat of a lush when it comes to flowers - I adore them! And there is something to be said for a beautiful & organic wildflower cluster that looks like it grew right out of the table or bouquet. I think it's perfectly imperfect and gorgeous all the way around!

The Idea Board | Beautiful Bouquet Wraps

One of the most beautiful parts of bridal decor can come in the form of the bridal bouquet. One way to make that single grouping of gorgeous buds even more unique would be to encase it in a beautiful fabric - like silk or lace! Try wrapping a gorgeous scarf or a bit of delicate lace around your bouquet to set it apart and dazzle your guests.

The Idea Board | Hug-Proof Boutonnieres

Grooms and groomsmen always look strapping in their sharp suits and shiny shoes but after hours of dancing and hundreds of hugs, the guys' boutonnieres can be left looking a tad bit sad. No fear, we have solutions for hug-proof boutonnieres! Try pinning on a cute medallion in your wedding colors or go for something unique like a Japanese Knot, believed to bring the recipient good luck. You could also ask your florist to use fiddle-head ferns which come in a variety of colors, lay flat against a lapel, and can withstand lots of hugs!

Since we are all SO ready for color, Spring, Summer, and more flowers, I wanted to share some of our favorites from last year!

Lake Tahoe Inspiration | Lovely Lilac

We're putting together some inspiration boards for an upcoming wedding and I thought I would share one with you! I think Lilac is an absolutely stunning color to incorporate into your wedding color scheme. It reminds me of French fields covered in Lilacs and the soothing scent that envelops you, perfect for calming your nerves on the big day!

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!

Lakefront Wedding | Playful Paradise

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. We will be closing our office for the rest of the year and will reopen on January 2nd with lots of exciting new and savvy wedding content! To end the year on a nice note, we have this uber gorgeous wedding from the one and only, Catherine Hall Studios!

The ceremony took place on the private beach. Crux Events & Party Rents built custom wooden benches designed to reflect the shape of a tree trunk on its side. White cushions and gold ribbons adorned the benches to add a little comfort with style!

Angela and Jeremy spend a chunk of their summers traveling to Tahoe with their dog Murphy. So, they felt it only appropriate to celebrate their wedding on the shores of Tahoe. After viewing a few estates, we decided on the perfect private lakefront. Several decks, a small lawn, and a private beach provided the perfect grounds for their circus themed wedding. Angela and Jeremy really didn't want a routine and traditional wedding. They felt it had been done far too many times and it was time to shake it up a bit and provide more than just dinner and dancing. Instead, we offered guests an interactive photo booth, ping-pong, horse shoes, bocce ball, corn hole, dancing, drinks, and soooo much food! From ice cream cones to pancakes, the guests were wined and dined to perfection!

We worked closely with Bellissima Floral to create a design that reflected the modern couple, while complimenting the 100 year old estate. Lanterns in different shapes and sizes hung from the grappling tree branches, lounge furniture provided comfortable seating throughout the venue, and oodles of unexpected elements added to the creative and playful theme.

Resort at Squaw Creek Wedding | Spring Fling

A few weeks ago I posted a couple sneak peaks of this wedding on our we have the entire collection ready for you to view! Lots of bright, fresh, and vibrant colors (courtesy of Annie X Photographie and A Bud and Beyond); organic accents, and an amazing band (The Cheeseballs) are just a few of the many highlights!

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!

One Fine Day & Tahoe Unveiled Featured on Utterly Engaged

As many of you know, I recently produced and coordinated Tahoe Unveiled, a resource and boutique bridal event to reveal the luxury wedding services in Lake Tahoe. It was a huge hit! Today, Tahoe Unveiled and One Fine Day is featured on one of our absolute favorite sites, Utterly Engaged! You can view part of the feature below, or click here to see more!

About a month ago, we highlighted Tahoe Unveiled’s A Day in the Mountains – an event to reveal the luxury of Tahoe’s wedding services. It turned out to be a huge success! They provided brides with inspiration, education, and an incredible group of vendors. Each exhibitor constructed gorgeous displays out of La Tavola linensCrux rental furniture, and various props from their own collection.

Guests were treated to sumptuous appetizers from PlumpJackMoody’s, and North Tahoe Catering, while PlumpJack served wine, champagne, and martinis! As guests arrived, they were each given an Uncorked Wine Shop burlap gift bag, complete with treats from our vendors, a Grace Ormonde magazine, and a San Francisco Brides magazine.

One Fine Day created five design rooms (also known as vignettes) and each displayed a very different theme and color palette to give brides an idea of how you can play around with accessories, décor, and style. Each display was a mini wedding scene providing a small dinner table and accent pieces.

Classic :: A soft and subtle color palette giving an overall feeling of pretty, complete, and slightly traditional.This vignette features La Tavola Linens, Diana's Floral Design flower arrangements, Twig & Fig stationary, Crux Events chivari chairs and lounge furniture, & Crate and Barrel dinnerware.

Contemporary :: A bold color combination of black, white, and bright pink. This vignette features La Tavola linens and chair covers, Martha Bernyk Floral Design flower arrangements, Twig & Fig stationary, & Crate and Barrel dinnerware.

Rustic Elegance :: A blend of the natural, rustic outdoor elements with an elegant setting and décor. This vignette features La Tavola linens, Diana's Floral Design flower arrangements, Twig & Fig stationary, Crux Events furniture, & Crate and Barrel dinnerware.

Vintage Shabby Chic :: A take on the ever-so-stylish trend at the moment – repurposing old items in an elegant setting. This vignette features La Tavola linens, Diana's Floral Design flower arrangements, Twig & Fig stationary, Crux Events chairs, & Crate and Barrel dinnerware.

City Chic :: A super modern display pushing 2011’s hot color – purple! This vignette features La Tavola linens, Diana's Floral Design flower arrangements, Twig & Fig stationary, Crux Events chivari chairs and steel tables, & Crate and Barrel dinnerware.

Bellissima Floral Creations designed and constructed a stunning chandelier to flank her exhibit space. The chandelier was made out of birch, metal, candles, and lots of flowers. Bellssima Floral Creations also designed an amazing bar structure that became the main focal piece when you entered the room. Flowers hung from the ceiling and sprouted from each surrounding accent piece and table with candles glowing in the middle.

Squaw Valley Wedding Highlight

I have been quite terrible lately with my blog posts - sorry! Now that the busy season has come to an end, I have time to post all of this past summer's gorgeous weddings and events. This particular wedding took place on June 26th at the Resort at Squaw Creek and Squaw Valley Chapel. Snow covered the mountain tops and the sun finally came out to shine - it was the very first non-snowy weekend of the summer!
