Date Change Anyone?

Who needs green grass, pink flowers, and a sunny warm day for your Wedding when you could have snow? Ha, ha- just thought you might want to see Overlook and the Village with real snow! We just took these photos minutes ago and it reminded me that as many of you continue your planning, you may be traveling to Tahoe soon. If you ski, ride, ice skate, tube, or just want to challenge your sweety to a snowball fight; Northstar opens tomorrow for your winter enjoyment!

Remember: Cold nights = more snuggling, yeah!

Happy Turkey Day, Who's Hungry?

Ahh, turkey, stuffing, grandma's home cooked gravy... As Thanksgiving approaches, is that what you are really hungry for? Or is it more REAL Northstar Weddings? (C'mon, tell the truth...)

Well, Grape Video has been kind enough to provide us with a sample of their fabulous work from this summer. You may need your tissue boxes, it's pretty sweet!
