Light pastels and the subtle texture of watercolors inspired this mountain wedding, and the The Landing Resort and Spa in South Lake Tahoe couldn’t have fit any better. With a lakeside backdrop to mimic the ethereal qualities of the watercolors, décor, and dreamy bridesmaids dresses, you’ll definitely be swooning if you love all of the above. Thanks to photog Jon M Photography for the gorgeous snaps!

The planners, Once Upon a Time Events, tell the wedding tale below:

Our team bonded with Alicia and Henning before we even met them and was solidified as the planning process progressed. It was so fun to hear about all the details of their relationship; how they met (on OkCupid.com), their nicknames for each other (Bear and Moose), and how he proposed (on the beach with a hidden photographer!).

30 4

The morning of the wedding Henning went for a hike over Emerald Bay while the girls got dolled up by Edin Carpenter. Alicia and her sister were able to take a moment with each other to cut a heart from one of their father’s shirts, who had passed years earlier, and hand sew it inside her wedding dress together. The Bride’s family added the final touch to her look with earrings that her grandmother was given to wear on her wedding day. Every woman married in the family since then has also worn them, including her mother and sister. The Bride also adorned the veil that her mother wore in her wedding to her father and gifted a watch of her father’s to the Groom the day of the wedding. The gorgeous bridal bouquet was tenderly wrapped in lace from both of her Grandmother’s wedding dresses.

The Bride’s childhood Rabbi married them with Lake Tahoe as a stunning backdrop and signed the Ketubah, a special Jewish prenuptial agreement. Their guests from all over the world (even Israel) took South Lake Tahoe by storm.

Midway through planning, our design focus shifted as the idea of a watercolor wedding was brought up based on a potential bridesmaid dress by Donna Morgan. Our team loved the idea of playing with all of the different soft colors and 6 months later it all came to life!

31 34 33 32

Every detail was planned out, down to the hand-dyed ombre napkins DIY’d by the Groom himself! The custom chandelier at the reception draping with flowers by Thran’s Flowers was a show stopper, not to mention the live painter Nata’s Fine Art, who captured every important moment of their wedding day in a one-of-a-kind piece which will hang on their wall for years to come.

Alicia’s cousins have been known to serenade the new Bride and Groom during the toasts, and this wedding was no exception. A medley of three songs were the perfect ending after a heart felt speech was given by a close friend of the family in place of the Bride’s father. The partying commenced after a beautifully choreographed first dance and was followed by the Horah!

Bohemian Mountain Lake Tahoe Wedding

Kelly and Eddie’s bohemian mountain wedding in Tahoe City is everything we want in a Lake Tahoe wedding. The bride had her hand in all of the effortlessly beautiful decor from the wildflower and herb bouquets to the pine cone trail leading to the ceremony.  We especially love the floral bridesmaids dresses and overall relaxed, happy vibe of the day. Not to mention how perfectly Melina Wallisch Photography captured it all.

From the photographer, Melina~
Eddie proposed to Kelly on a mountainside in Norway. When they were living in San Francisco, they made frequent snow trips to the mountain. Both active snowboarders, they decided on a relaxed, backyard wedding in Lake Tahoe. They now reside in LA and I am happy to share their wedding story here with you.

Entering Kelly and Eddie’s welcome party at the Bear Paw Lodge in Tahoe City felt like being at a global music festival. Soft Mexican blankets were laid out with oversized pillows, a live band, specialty wristbands and custom bar drinks. Eddie’s family comes from England and South Africa, and Kelly was raised in San Diego. Flags from every part of the world that guests were from hung throughout the wooded land overlooking glorious Lake Tahoe. Lawn games and gourmet s’mores mingled with fire pits and dance parties. It was a welcome party that felt like home. Kelly and Eddie’s relaxed, happy vibe set the tone for their entire wedding weekend. They really wanted their vendors to blend in and specifically requested that we not dress in black, as many service vendors on a wedding day do. In fact, they asked my assistant photographer to wear jeans! Kelly had her hand in all of the effortlessly beautiful decor from the wildflower and herb bouquets (crafted by Kelly’s childhood soccer friend Casey of Second Nature Creations) to the pine cone trail leading to the ceremony. Instead of flower petals, the ceremony path was lined with vintage rugs, set in the woodland forest behind the Lodge.

At one point, some of the couple’s special family guests came up front to sing Mumford and Son’s “I will wait for you”. Their mic wasn’t working so they asked everyone to join in (how convenient that the words were written on the program). One of my favorite wedding moments ever is when the entire wedding sang this song to Kelly and Eddie. It was a moment I will never forget. Cocktail hour followed with a gourmet meal under the stars. After heartfelt toasts and a beautiful first dance, DJ and master musician Brian Hess brought the house down with one of the best house parties I have ever experienced. The goodness just kept on flowing all night with homemade mac ‘n’ cheese and pie. If I were to ever marry again, this would be the ideal wedding to have. A wedding where everyone is happy is hard to pull off, and Kelly and Eddie did it splendidly.

From the wedding planner ~
Katie + Brandon were such a dream to work with. They had a clear vision of what they wanted and picked amazing vendors to execute those details. The backdrop for their ceremony was picturesque: towering mountains covered in pine trees in dreamy Lake Tahoe. After the ceremony guests moved inside to The Ritz Carlton for a beautiful elegant cocktail hour and reception. There were lots of soft neutral colors and gold accents along with little details of marsala flowers and navy blue napkins to add a pop. Their sweetheart table was covered in delicate blush sequins and beautiful draping green garland. As the sun set on the mountains Katie and Brandon snuck outside for some breathtaking photos. After that, they danced the night away with their guests and had a late snack of, the groom’s favorite, s’mores!

Lake Tahoe Winter Elopement

This gorgeous couple decided on a destination elopement in Lake Tahoe after growing up spending their summers vacationing in along the same shores. Their sunset ceremony was so utterly romantic and an intimate crowd of family and friends was there to witness the event and celebrate with the couple. Cassidy Carson was there to capture the day and be sure to check out the behind the scenes video from Alyssa Torrech Videography.

Tahoe elopement

From Photographer, Cassidy CarsonWhat’s better than the most divine lake, snow-capped mountains and a magical sunset? Simple – when they merge at the horizon and create an absolute picturesque moment.

Molly and Collin met one summer when their families were vacationing in Lake Tahoe as they did every year. The nostalgia of childhood memories was a no brainer when Southern Social was scouting their elopement location. This sunset ceremony was the perfect combination of both Molly and Colin with its utterly romantic view paired with striking winter whites. The soft hues against the pristine snow made for an unimaginable scene and maintained the simple palette Molly described during the planning and designing of her elopement.

Molly donned a lush, refreshing bouquet from Petal & Pine accompanied by intricate details of her hand-stitched lace veil from Alice & Mae and flawless silk gown from Lea-Ann Belter with a stunning side braid by Leslie Ellis. Molly and Colin dreamed of a travel-inspired elopement to join their families in their favorite little lake town. Their dream was attained by devotion to the littlest of details including exquisite handmade paper, calligraphy and illustrations from Olive Juice Press for their invitation suite. They sent guests home with personal luggage tags to remember their incredible trip. The evening ended with a sunset to rival all sunsets forming a delicate package of perfection captured by Cassidy.

Saying “I do” on a picturesque mountaintop is dream-worthy in its own right, but saying “I do” atop a mountain overlooking the gorgeous Sierra Nevada Mountains? That’s an entirely new level of pretty.  These two sweeties, tied the knot at the Northstar Zephyr Lodge in a take-your-breath-away celebration featuring mesmerizing views, crystal blue waters and a gondola or two.

To plan your very own dream day perched on an 8000 foot mountain-top, contact Tahoe Wedding Collections. Whether you’re planning a small, intimate affair or a larger gathering of 500, your guests will marvel at the stunning Pacific Crest views and drop-dead gorgeous sunsets, no matter the time of year. Just promise to invite us, okay?

First Pick Planning describes the beautiful Tahoe wedding day below:

When we met Katie and Grant they let us know they planned to get married in Lake Tahoe, CA. The couple wanted a place where they could surround themselves with family and friends in a place near and dear to both of their hearts. Both Katie and Grant grew up spending time in Lake Tahoe and had fond memories with their families. It seemed like the ideal place for the two families to become one. They decided on a picturesque view at the top of Northstar’s Zephyr Lodge.

zephyr-lodge-wedding-3 zephyr-lodge-wedding-5 zephyr-lodge-wedding-6

Northstar and its magical mountains set the perfect backdrop for their romantic wedding. The ceremony was outside facing out into the mountains and encompassed the love they had for each other, family and friends. During the ceremony they honored their parents longstanding marriages and Grant paid tribute to his grandfather by choosing his wedding ring as his wedding band.

After the ceremony guests entered the reception inside Zephyr Lodge, which only lends itself to the stunning natural beauty that surrounds it with the floor to ceiling windows along one side of the venue. Art in Bloom brought us wild and free blooms that were placed in small clusters of mismatched vases that Katie’s mother had lovingly collected over the last year. The palette of rich greens and bright blooms complemented the scenery outside.

Guests dined at long family style tables with views of the mountains. As we further got to know Katie and Grant, we learned that family and friends truly mean everything to them. Based on this it was decided that we would serve the dinner “family style” with guests being able to try a little bit from each of the plates as they passed and encouraging guest to chat with one another.  After dinner was served and the traditional dances and speeches commenced.

zephyr-lodge-wedding-2 zephyr-lodge-wedding-4 zephyr-lodge-wedding-6 zephyr-lodge-wedding-1 zephyr-lodge-wedding-12 zephyr-lodge-wedding-13

Every aspect of the venue was perfection due to the amazing team at Northstar. During the planning process we quickly learned that Grant had a sweet tooth and dessert would be his main focus. In lieu of a traditional cake the couple opted for an entire dessert table filled with a few of Grant’s favorite’s: mini chocolate mousses, cupcakes, cookies and even doughnut holes. The night was truly one of those beautiful brisk mountain nights and guests enjoyed hot cocoa as they waited for the gondola to take them down the mountain at the end of the evening. Many of the guests joined the couple at the after party at Mikuni’s Sushi restaurant in the village where the rest of the doughnut holes were devoured and the life-sized cut outs of Katie and Grant made their grand appearance!

From the bride ~
Brandon proposed to me on a random Wednesday night in October of 2014, I turned the corner to three pumpkins carved with the words Will You Marry Me? After going back and forth with what we wanted for our wedding, we decided on an small destination wedding in Lake Tahoe. Once we realized that random October date fell on a Saturday this year, we knew it was meant to be.

We originally had found a private estate online and thought it would be perfect, so we booked it! Well…once we arrived in Tahoe for our last bit of planning in April, we realized it wasn’t going to work. Panic set in and we were frantically searching online for the perfect venue, since all of our vendors were already booked I had to keep our special October date! The stars lined up for us that weekend because we found a true hidden gem. The Tahoma Boathouse, perched right on the lake, filled with old Tahoe charm, a gorgeous lush lawn for cocktail hour, a stunning fireplace for s’mores later in the night, and just the right size for our guests.

Being from San Diego where the sun shines 365 days a year, I was so conflicted on whether we should have a tent or not. Better safe than sorry, right? We rented a clear tent and had huge wooden chandeliers draped with florals by the amazing Stems by Diana, Celebrations Party Rentals strung twinkle lights around the ENTIRE property, it was magical.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner from Butter + Salt, danced the night away under the stars, the guys enjoyed the Cigar bar and everyone loved the beignets for dessert! Photography and videography were the two most important things for us, once we spoke with Carmen of Carmen Santorelli Photography, we knew she was our girl! Dax Victorino Films completely blew us away with a same day edit that played at the bar during the reception, our guests couldn’t believe it!

On that same October night, exactly two years later, we were married by Brandon’s stepdad with 65 of our closest family and friends right on the lake. There was so much love surrounding us that weekend, it was an absolute dream. To say Lake Tahoe will always have a special place in our hearts is an understatement.

June 13th was the perfect summer day for a wedding on Lake Tahoe; great weather, no clouds and the sun sparkled against the blue waters. With wedding planning and design by Summit Soiree, Katie and Erik’s vision for their big day was perfectly executed. The couple opted for an elegant theme mixed with dark wood farm tables and chairs from Camelot Party Rentals. The bouquets and floral arrangements focused on greens and creamy whites, while incorporating fern leaves and branches; everything tied in very well with the natural backdrop at the Glenbrook Club.

The adorable couple pledged their love to each other along the lake creating an elegant scene. And the two flower girls dressed in turquoise fairy wings with woven flower crowns dropped rose petals before Katie’s awaited walk down the aisle. We are incredibly lucky that one of our favorite destination wedding photographers, Virgil Bunao Photography was there to capture all the precious details of the day.

From the photographer, Virgil Bunao~
I’ve been to the Lake Tahoe area before, and luckily for me, it was another wedding I worked on previously with Summit Soiree (they have some of the best brides!). I seriously had a huge case of the blues after leaving the area; Lake Tahoe is just brilliant and the landscape is a photographer’s dream. When Summit Soiree informed me that I had an inquiry to do photography for Katie and Erik’s big day in Glenbrook, I was extremely overjoyed and so pumped to head back.

I arrived in Glenbrook on a Wednesday, left on Monday, and was able to cram all of the festivities and the scenery in that short amount of time. Katie and Erik and their families met up with me, and they were such good folk. Their rehearsal dinner was in the midst of the beautiful nature scenes of Lake Tahoe with such a laid-back feel. Their wedding was no different. The day was as perfect as it could be; great weather, no clouds, and the sun was shining off of the surface of the blue waters. Katie and Erik chose to have their ceremony in front of the lake and from every angle, there was a perfect shot.

Their design elements was the ideal accompaniment to the surroundings. They incorporated greens and creamy whites, fern leaves and branches and rustic browns and tans; everything tied in very well with the nature scene at the Glenbrook Club. Ashlie and Heather from Summit Soiree did a great job at executing the vision Katie and Erik had for their wedding day, and I had a blast photographing it and especially Mr. and Mrs. Mcdonald. They made my stay in Lake Tahoe another wonderful experience, and it was a treat on its own to be in such a beautiful place, helping beautiful people make new memories.
