LOVE LOVE LOVE all the details of this epic mountain ceremony at the Zephyr Lodge meets Village glam reception at the Overlook Pavilion! Congrats to the beautiful couple and big thanks to the talented Lauren Lindley Photography.
The world lost an amazing man last month. The Tahoe wedding family lost a phenomenal photographer last month. There aren't enough positive things to say about Vernon Wiley. He was so fun to be around even when the weddings were intense (actually he was funniest then). He was passionate about his work, whether it was a wedding or a creative mountain shot. But when I asked him last year what he was most grateful for, he told me his son and wife. That is a good man with priorities in the right places. We will miss his smiling face, sense of humor, and gorgeous images. Here are a few of my favorite Vernon images from Heavenly and Kirkwood.
This one helps me smile through the sadness. A legend.
One of the great things about Lake Tahoe is that there are so many activities for your guests to do when they are not attending the wedding. They can go mountain biking, boating, hiking, or gambling to name a few. New this summer they can go on an Epic Discovery at the top of Heavenly Mountain Resort.
Guests can take the scenic Gondola ride up from the Heavenly Village to the Observation Deck at 9,123 feet and take in the amazing views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. Included with the scenic Gondola ticket, guests can ride Tamarack Chair, hike the many trails, and learn about the animals and history of Tahoe.
Those more adventurous folks can purchase the Ultimate Adventure Pass (or Little Explorer Pass for the younger guests) and have unlimited access to the Ridge Rider Mountain Coaster, Hot Shot Zip Line, Ropes Courses, Summer Tubing, and the Granite Peak Climbing Wall.
Epic Discovery provides a
unique, connected, on-mountain summer experience, immersing you in activities
which provide big-time thrills, allowing you to challenge yourself physically,
guiding you to explore and better understand your natural surroundings, and
ultimately create lifelong memories. Bring your family and friends to Heavenly this summer!
Group rates are available for 20 or more guests. Please call 775.586.4442 for more details.
So much time and energy goes into the planning of the wedding reception, however every wedding ceremony should be as unique as the couple. From the words that are spoken to the decor at the location.
At Heavenly Resort we offer a wooden arch at Lakeview Lodge for couples to be able to decorate, leave as is, or remove completely. This offers a simple way to personalize your wedding ceremony. Here are just a handful of different ways to decorate an arch or keep it simple.
Check out these fabulous images from a beautiful sunny day at the Zephyr Lodge! And a sunset ceremony to boot. Big congrats go out to the lovely Lindsay and Nickolai, and thank you to the very talented Russ Levi! See all the images here. Enjoy! - Bxo
