This year, in lieu of the annual trip that I take with my fiancé, I spent my labor day weekend coordinating a Zephyr Lodge wedding. Lucky for me, Sarah + Scott were one of my favorite couples to work with this year. Their laid back approach to wedding planning made them so fun to meet with. In fact one of our first planning meetings together took place at a local brunch joint. They had been up late the night before housesitting for friends, and had decided that they preferred bloody mary’s and mimosas over the original coffee date we had planned.
Going in to their wedding, I knew they had a clear vision. Traditional. But fun. Corn hole was to line the deck during cocktail hour. Koozies were at the bar for the friends and families who preferred PBR. They insisted that their alma mater’s football game to be playing in the bar. But they also envisioned blush and ivory floral covering the entire interior of the lodge. Intricate lace runners ran the down the lengths of the dining tables. The invitations were delicate, with Sarah and Scott’s names etched in letterpress calligraphy. Guests were greeted by flutes of champagne, as they stepped off of the gondola. The mountaintop venue that Zephyr Lodge provided was the perfect setting for the couple to exchange their vows, overlooking Lake Tahoe’s national forest.
