Featured on Style Me Pretty


Fall is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than to inject some color into your Friday? One Fine Day Events was recently featured on Style Me Pretty and we are reminiscing and dreaming about bright lips, bold bouquets, and Huey Lewis quotes captured by Reel Eyes.

When you team up with a couple that has a love for the lake and a craving for color in addition to Mike Larson’s keen ability to capture all the details, good things are bound to happen. So kick back, relax, and enjoy some of this design magic and remember: The power of love is a curious thing. Happy Friday!


Wine Country Wedding Video from Reel Eyes


This wine country wedding from One Fine Day Events exudes sophistication and elegance. Their romantic ceremony site incorporated draping and greenery with the vineyard as the backdrop. After a rockin' al fresco cocktail hour the guests moved inside the barn, which looked glam and chic with a canopy of overhead lighting and a lot of gold accents. Check out all the stunning details in their wedding video from Reel Eyes. You can feel the emotion behind this stunner of a wedding that took place in the very place Alex and Marissa first fell in love.

Private Estate Tour | An Introduction to our Collection of Private Estates

Wow that was one amazing wedding season!! As we reminisce all the events we had the pleasure of planning and designing this past Summer, we wanted to introduce you to our gorgeous collection of private estates. One of the greatest parts of a private estate wedding or event is the completely unique environment it creates for both the couple and the guests. No stuffy ballroom or standard cookie cutter details, instead a private estate provides a completely unexpected atmosphere. The guests have no idea what to expect before they arrive so you have an instant moment of drama as they walk through the gates and arrive at your gorgeous celebration. Plus, the backdrop of the estate combined with the mountains and the lake is breathtaking! While each property has it's own shape of a lawn, collection of trees and plants, or sometimes even a little slope, we have worked with every tree stump, every odd shape, and every obstacle to ensure an alluring and very comfortable space for both your down to earth friends as well as your more sophisticated guests that may be expecting the comforts and amenities of a ballroom environment. No matter what the weather forecast or the terrain, we always consider every ounce of comfort and need the guests may crave. In addition, we create custom scaled floor plans of the event space. This becomes quite a huge benefit to our clients as they need to know how much space each element (the tent, the tables, the dance floor, etc) will require and how much space the property provides for everything they want to have at their celebration. So without further ado, here is a sneak peak of our properties we will be introducing you to over the next couple weeks!!

Squaw Valley Stables Vintage Wedding

This mountaintop wedding is pure magic! Wildflowers in bloom, a beautiful couple, a 1920's themed wedding, and a ceremony on the top of Squaw Valley..... what more could you ask for? We absolutely adore this couple and were over the moon when they decided to hire us! Every meeting, every phone call, and every scouting trip was always full of adventure and laughs. The couple wanted to take a spiritual approach to their ceremony, and did so by taking us on a trip  that involved several expeditions to find their perfect in the snow which involved skiing and boot packing up the side of a rock, another rock climbing in sandals in between snow patches and loose rocks, and then finally a lovely hike to the perfect location - a gorgeous meadow in between Shirley Canyon and Granite chief peak. It just so happened this was McKenzie's late father's favorite place to ski. Fast forward six months to mid July - wildflowers in full bloom, abundant sunshine, and the most beautiful lush backdrop for the perfect ceremony. Guests were shuttled to the top of Squaw via the cable car where they were greeted with fresh farmers market berries, cocktails, and artisan popsicles. After enjoying their epicurean delights, the fabulous Irish Band we flew in from Dublin, All Folk'd Up, escorted everyone with their Irish folk music to the ceremony.  It was the most festive and exciting hike Squaw has ever seen. It's no wonder why this wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty and The Knot.

The Kid Zone Mckenzie wanted her daughter to be part of the wedding and also wanted to make sure she would have a good time. So, we created a Kid Zone complete with a circle fun tent full of games and blankets, a jumpy house, and a pony ride. Luckiest kids ever...the adults definitely tried to poach this section of the wedding.

The Reception After the ceremony, guests proceeded down the cable car and were shuttled to the Squaw Valley Stables for a 1930's themed reception. From the amazing Zephyr Tent to the mismatched vintage chairs, antique tables & china, benches, and wild flowers, the dining area was completely transformed from a horse stable. We had a custom crate wall built for the back bar and paired it with a reclaimed wooden bar. As guest's were asked to dress in 1920's attire, they fit the decor perfectly!

The Dessert Station The bride's dad loved Ikedas pies! As he sadly is no longer with us, we created a special table just for him. We had a sign made that said "Jon's Pie Station" and created a gorgeous eclectic display of all sorts of Ikedas Pies. lastfourphotos4

The Music

This wedding had not one, not two, but FIVE bands! To say music was a big deal is an understatement! Guests were treated to an unbelievable weekend of entertainment. We had everything from the Hakensaw Boys performing Bluegrass music, to the Irish Folk Band we flew in from Dublin, to classical music for the ceremony, to the blues band that performed for the reception. It was awesome! To top it off, Kenny and Mckenzie choreographed the greatest swing dance to “Come and Go” by Quinn DeVeauz and theBlue Beat Review!

Private Estate Lakefront Wedding in Incline Village

Jill and Brian said their I Do's on the rooftop of a gorgeous property in Incline Village. Yup, you read that correctly - on the rooftop! Let me tell you, the view of the lake is pretty impressive no matter where you are, but from the rooftop of a private estate - it's breathtaking! After the rooftop ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn and the indoor-outdoor living room, followed by dinner served lakeside. The couple was really inspired by a modern day Frank Sinatra dinner party. So we incorporated modern elements along with iconic old fashioned decorative elements to tie the two together. The family's vintage Packard limo was a pretty awesome tribute to the Frank Sinatra era and made for an awesome getaway car! The dinner tables consisted of a combination of farm tables and square tables covered in soft gray linens. Gorgeous arrangements decorated the tables with green and ivory flowers cascading down the tables in a very elegant and understated manner. We then introduced a unique take on chevron for all of the  paper accessories. The menus, table names, programs, and escort cards each had a different design incorporating the chevron but with a slight twist to change it up. After dancing under the stars to the awesome band, guests were shuttled back to their hotel for one more treat - a food truck serving all you can eat tacos!! YUM! bretcoleblog11

A Celebration for our Vendors

We LOVE all of our vendors so much and REALLY value their hard we threw them a party! And it wasn't just any party...we designed an evening of merriment with live music by the very talented Brian Hess Band, delicious cocktails & appetizers by PlumpJack, and because we can't just throw a party in an empty space, we designed an intimate rustic-chic outdoor cocktail party full of pretty little details from our Signature Decor Collection!  It was such a great way to start the summer and thank everyone for working their little booties off for our clients. Take a little peak at the decor below:  1-Tahoe-Unveiled-Entrance
