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!

PlumpJack Wedding | Winter Wonderland

Jon and Jessica married under heavy snowflakes surrounded by the warmth of their family and friends. Although the weather was freezing, they were elated with the snow and the amount of guests that traveled to be with them. It was their dream to get married at the top of the ski resort ... whether the sun was out or hiding behind the clouds. The bridesmaids wore uggs and matching cream pea coats; the groomsmen were decked out in sorrels in matching suits; and the guests were bundled in coats. It was a beautiful service!

Squaw Valley Wedding in the Winter

Words can't even describe how elated I am for Jon & Jessica. They had the most magical wedding I have ever coordinated! A huge amount of planning, organizing, and strategizing was involved with an outdoor ceremony in the middle of winter during a series of storms. But, it was beautiful and so worth it! Thanks to the fabulous photographer, Mike Larson, and his team, here are a couple sneak peaks. More to come soon! 01_cu8c5558_mikelarson2

Inspiration Board | Winter Part 1

My office today consisted of a desk in front of floor to ceiling windows overlooking Squaw Valley Ski Resort. Whenever I needed a break, I looked up to see skiers and riders carving turns down the mountain - not bad! As I was watching over the joys of winter, I decided to put my view to work and create a Winter Inspiration Board. For whatever reason I feel winter weddings tend to have a much more intimate feel. Perhaps it's the frost on the windows paired with a warm fireplace, or the rich warm colors, or even the comfort foods that are common of a winter wedding. Whatever it maybe, here are a few ideas and images that inspired me today!

Queen of the Snows Wedding | Warm & Cozy

Carolyn and Ken were married on a perfect, crisp winter day in North Lake Tahoe. The families rented large cabins in Squaw Valley equipped with hot tubs, numerous bedrooms, pool tables, foosball, and large refrigerators. The in-house entertainment assisted in keeping this destination wedding's cost to a minimum. The ceremony took place at Queen of the Snows Catholic Church in Squaw Valley. As a huge storm delivered 6 feet of snow a few days prior the bride entered through a roofless tunnel of snow and into the back door.

The reception was held at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. As guests entered from the cold, they were greeted by a warm candle-lit foyer with a beautiful glowing place-card table. Bellissima Floral created a gorgeous 3 tier display of red cherries, floating candles, red berries, and white roses, which made for a welcoming ambiance that set the intimate and romantic setting for the evening. This ambiance continued in the reception room with aspen trees lit up with white lights and pictures of the couple growing up hanging from the branches; votive candelabras on the tables; and a 13 piece band to entertain the guests all night long.
