A Picture-Perfect Squaw Valley Stables Wedding

Kindyl and Chase met in 2014 while working together at a restaurant in Sacramento. As luck would have it, Chase was assigned to train Kindyl on her first day. What started as a friendship developed into something deeper in August of 2014. Since then, they have adopted three dogs, created a home together, gone on countless adventures, and began building an incredible life together.

The couple chose Lake Tahoe as their wedding location based on their mutual love for nature. “Hiking, camping, and exploring nature is something that we are both very passionate about. So we saw Tahoe as the most beautiful backdrop for our perfect day,” Kindyl gushed.

The couples also added unique elements to their guests’ experience, like the lounge set outside the tent, complete with a firepit and s’more’s fixings. It was the perfect place for people to escape and enjoy sweet treats and even sweeter conversations. They also had a ‘teen table’ for their younger guests, where each place setting had a tic-tac-toe bag with rocks painted by Chase’s mother. Add tater-tots with dinner, and you’ve got yourself a winning combo! Another fun element the couple incorporated into their special day was a scavenger hunt QR code at each place setting. The idea behind this was that their guests could take pictures throughout the night. The QR code directed them to an uploading site linked directly to a private dropbox for Kindyl and Chase. “Unfortunately, the QR code expired an hour before the wedding! If that is the only thing that went wrong on the day, I’ll take it.”

Looking back on her special day, Kindyl recalls one of their friends suggesting that they find time to stand on the sidelines. So they did and witnessed their guests celebrate them. “Looking out at our loved ones loving each other and celebrating our love for one another is definitely a highlight of the day.”

According to Kindyl it was the most magical day. “Our vendors were all incredible, and we feel so blessed to have had our big day in beautiful Lake Tahoe.”⁠
