Elegant Winter Wedding Overlooking Lake Tahoe

When we say this wedding checks all the boxes, we are not lying! One Fine Day Events did not miss a beat with planning & designing this off-the-charts wedding.

The bride rapped her vows to a custom track courtesy of Sam Ravenna from A Beautiful Sound. The groom got down on one knee to put the ring on her finger. The guests left the ceremony to enjoy skiing and sledding before returning to a breathtaking whimsical reception. Lattes and Hot chocolate were served from an Italian-converted Vespa during the post-ceremony cocktails. The couple escaped for some alone time after the ceremony and enjoyed photos over Emerald Bay. The bride had 2 glam looks and a dance outfit that would leave Whitney Houston envious. And yes, there were sequins, a crop top, and a custom denim jacket! The band rocked the night away with the bride in the ultimate dance outfit that would make Whitney Houston envious. Need we say more?

Jeannette and Dan celebrated their wedding at West Shore Cafe in North Lake Tahoe. The celebration started with a morning ceremony on the pier. Snowcapped mountains and the glassy lake provided an epic backdrop for this incredible celebration. They chose to stretch the wedding out over the entire day, and they made the most of every minute! They enjoyed two cocktail hours with their guests, photos without the pressure of having to race back to see guests, and a candle-lit whimsical reception.

We are suckers for anything velvet, especially velvet bridesmaid dresses …and velvet napkins and table linens don’t disappoint either.


The cutest bridal accessory and a must for a winter wedding in Lake Tahoe – white ear muffs!

Post-ceremony, guests mingled on the deck sipping on champagne while warming up around the fire.

A Vintage Italian Vespa converted into an Espresso Machine? Yes Please! After enjoying champagne outside, guests came inside to warm up and enjoy Cafe Apae’s freshly brewed lattes, hot chocolate, and espresso!

After the first cocktail hour (post-ceremony) Jeanette and Dan escaped with their photographer, Betty Globa for some alone time while overlooking Emerald Bay. All of the guests headed to the ski slopes to enjoy sledding and skiing before coming back to the transformed reception.

When guests returned from their mountain adventure, they were greeted with a wall of champagne along with a garden-inspired magical transformation of the reception venue. Greenery wrapped around the chandeliers, flowers lined the tables, and candles lit the entire room.

Jeannette came back from their Emerald Bay shoot and the La Di Da beauty team did a little glam work to create a new look. Later in the evening, Jeannette surprised everyone in her dancing outfit – sequin boots, a sequin crop top, and a custom-embroidered denim jacket!

Mic drop for the bride’s dancing outfit 😉

Congrats Jeannette and Dan and props to the entire vendor team for this beautiful celebration!
