A Mountain Soiree in Lake Tahoe

Anne & Pete  |  September 27th  |  Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Anne’s love of travel coupled beautifully with Pete’s adventurous spirit and their nautical themed wedding was a weather infused mountain soiree! The pouring rain was a happy welcome after Lake Tahoe had been engulfed in smoke from area fires burning all week. Many day-before and last-minute decisions were made. The entire ceremony and reception was rearranged and moved the night before! The couple was so happy to have an outdoor ceremony, and nobody would’ve guessed anything had been changed. The day was pulled off splendidly with a seamlessly amazing design team.

Lake Tahoe Winter Soiree

Kaleolani & Jose | January 4th  | Lake Tahoe

From the bride:
I knew I wanted a mountainous winter wedding.  After checking out a few venues in Northern California, I decided to stop in Tahoe to see a few more. I immediately fell in love with everything. The view, the hotels, the skiing, the activities, the lake, the location to the airport, everything!

BTW Photography | Luxe Mountain WeddingsI chose a color palette of the dark greens of a forest or mountain, the white of the ski runs, and the golden glitter when the sun sets over the lake. I wanted the mountain cabin feel but at the 5 star resort level.

 Our ceremony was short and sweet and perfect. BTW Photography | Luxe Mountain Weddings BTW Photography | Luxe Mountain Weddings

We nailed a wooden wine box shut. The box had a bottle of wine, love letters to each other, and advice cards from all the guests inside. The box is not to be opened for 10 years.

I hated how fast the night went by! And how Jose and I hardly had a moment to sit back and enjoy! Everyone wanted to take a picture, talk to us, sit with us, dance with us, drink with us! I wish it could have lasted longer.

Jose and I had been practicing a Viennese Waltz for almost a year. We were excited to finally perform! It was perfect and a surprise for most of the guests.  BTW Photography | Luxe Mountain Weddings

My advice: Hire a wedding planner. My planner made my day perfect.

Destination Lake Tahoe

From the bride, Tara:
My husband, Wesley and I created our wedding vision as a team. We came to agreements, stayed up late working on projects, and traveled a lot to meet people and to make purchases, all while walking hand-in-hand.We chose to have our wedding at Lake Tahoe as we have created fond memories amongst most of Lake Tahoe’s shorelines and on the captivating water.

Being that our wedding was in November, we decided to go with fall tones of orange, plum, and lime green. Orange is my favorite color, so the color scheme was very fitting! HeidiHuber02 HeidiHuber03 HeidiHuber04 HeidiHuber05

We had personalized escort card coasters.  Each coaster had a picture of the specific guest with either Wesley or I by their side and our wedding date printed on the bottom corner it was a great conversation starter for guests. HeidiHuber06 HeidiHuber07

Our decor consisted of mercury candle holders and vases, delicate crystal beads hanging off the branches that made up the centerpieces, crushed white tablecloths with burnt orange napkins, up-lighting on the walls, chocolate suede couches and benches to make the lounge areas. HeidiHuber08
