We were thrilled to find Nicole and Jason’s wedding in our inbox earlier this month. This amazing couple wrote to tell us all about their gorgeous Lake Tahoe wedding at Homewood Mountain Resort. It really made our week to read this special note from Nicole, “From finding amazing vendors (As You Wish Catering, Camelot Party Rentals, Art in Bloom and Brian Hess Music) to beautiful details, Tahoe Unveiled really helped us create the wedding of our dreams! ”
Nicole and Jason, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful day with us!
From the bride, Nicole ~
Jason and I love Lake Tahoe and one of our favorite things to do in the winter is to take off early on Friday mornings and head up from San Francisco to our favorite ski resort, Homewood Mountain. So what better place to say “I do” then over looking the gorgeous Lake Tahoe at 7,000 feet! The minute we found out we could take all our guests up to the top on the chair lift we knew Homewood was the place we would tie the knot. The view from the top is absolutely breath taking and as if that wasn’t enough, the South Lodge was an ideal space that we could make our own for the reception.
We could not have asked for a more perfect Lake Tahoe day! The sun was shining without a cloud in the sky and there was a gentle breeze to keep every one cool at the top. Our guest loved the chair lift ride to the top and they were stunned when they saw the incredible view of the lake and surrounding mountains! Being the last one up on the chair lift and seeing all our family and friends anxiously waiting for the bride made me bubble over with excitement, I just couldn’t wait to see my groom!
It was very important to Jason and I to incorporate as many friends and family members into our wedding as possible since they are such a huge part of our life and relationship. Our dear friend James officiated the beautiful ceremony which brought tears to everyones eyes, Jason’s sister did a reading, and my mother read a Welsh Wedding Blessing in honor of our Welsh heritage. Our groomsman Damien MC’d the entire reception. He had every one laughing and smiling from the moment he took the mic! Then, for our parent and first dance we had my incredibly talented friend, an rising artist in Nashville, Cameron sing with two of my bridesmaids while Brian Hess and his band played. It was wonderful to bring together so many amazing people to help us personalize our wedding day!
We feel blessed to have been so fortunate to work with so many incredible vendors! From Mike at As You Wish Catering, who made the most amazing wedding food, our guests are still talking about it, to our fantastic day of coordinator Rachael from RSVP Events, she never missed a beat. I don’t have enough words to praise how incredible she was! Our photographers, Amy and Dusty Droz from Drozian Photoworks, went way beyond just taking photos, they made sure we had everything we needed and they captured every single moment! Brian Hess, musician and DJ, is an absolute pro. The dance floor was jumping all night long; I have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding. Hattie Reed, from Art In Bloom designed the most stunning tables I have ever seen, the flowers were gorgeous! August 16th was the best day of our lives and we will never forget the incredible amount of love we felt from all our guests and everyone who helped make our Lake Tahoe wedding uniquely us!
