Brett's Recipe for a Northstar Wedding Weekend

Happy New Year! 2010- the year of your Wedding! Woo hoo! So, I thought what better way to celebrate than to share my favorite recipes with you for an action packed, guest pleasing, fun-filled Wedding weekend in Tahoe:

Start with welcome bags for our front desk to hand out as guests check in

Add two hours of cocktails at Baxter's to welcome guests and listen to live jazz on the weekends

Top with an outdoor movie and set aside

In a new bowl, measure in jewelry creation or candle making with the girls

Knead in one scoop of gelato or sorbetto

Next, blend in hair, makeup, and nails at the Ritz Carlton Spa

Put it all together and dance the night away at your Wedding!

The next day, relive all the memories with friends and family by topping with an after glow brunch at Martis Valley Grille or TC's Pub

Try the Low Fat Version:

Start with a handful of Wedding weekend itineraries, mailed to your guests

Combine with three hours of pizza and roller skate party at the cabanas

Add a dash of s'mores and allow to rest for eight hours

Next, combine scenic lift rides with hiking or geocaching on the mountain (also feel free to substitute with mountain biking)

Shake in a 9 hole golf tournament and follow with lunch

Top with massage and mani / pedi (bring your own hair stylist and make up artist with you) and spin off to your Wedding

Post-Wedding, add three hours of pool time and tennis, BBQ and serve before guests head home

Don't forget to watch those calories- gotta fit into that Wedding dress!


  1. I love it! The s'mores and outdoor movie ideas are great for the nights leading up to the wedding when everyone starts rolling into town. Any chance we can request that Groundhog Day be played sometime between 7/15 - 7/18? Aaron would love me forever. ;)

  2. Hi Ana, I'm sure he will love you forever either way, but I will definitely try my best to make this happen! I will let you know as soon as I hear back...
