A Lake Tahoe Winter Wedding Soiree

From the bride, Kaleolani:
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!

I wanted the mountain cabin feel but at the 5 star resort level.

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.
