Samantha and Josh planned their South Lake Tahoe wedding all the way from Seattle, Wa! Family and friends came from all over to watch them get married at 8300 feet in elevation. It was a gorgeous day in June and we could not have asked for better weather! Big thanks to Megan and Lisa for assisting me that day
Here’s a little note from Samantha on why they chose Tahoe!
Tahoe has been a significant place to us over the past 9 years together. We have celebrated many birthdays (we have the same birthday), along with anniversaries and any other celebratory occasion that would allow us to take a mini vacation up to Tahoe. Any time we could, we would escape to South Lake Tahoe to enjoy the scenery and atmosphere. For us, Heavenly Mountain Resort was the first and only venue we looked at. In fact, we even paid the deposit before viewing it in person which is not always the best idea; however, it seemed like sensible gamble in this case. Once we were able to make it down from Washington and view the venue, instantly we knew we made the right choice. Surrounded by beautiful trees, the stunning lake, and the fact that we were on a mountain top assured us both that this was without a doubt the perfect place for us to tie the knot. The staff at Heavenly was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and professional.
For me, the key things that helped me get through this overwhelmingly wonderful day were as follows, TISSUE-lots of it, wine-to ease the nerves, having your MOH at your side-at ALL times, and remember to live in the moment; embrace and enjoy your meaningful and magical day. I waited 9 years to marry my best friend. It was WELL worth the wait! We will always and forever cherish our wedding day.
