Wedding in South Lake Tahoe: All the little details

Posted in Weddings | October 2, 2012 | By Tahoe South

- Tiara Wasner

It's finally here the wedding weekend breakdown. Our goal was to pull in natural elements that surround us every day in Tahoe, without going overboard. I think we accomplished just that.

The boutiques and boutonnieres were beautifully arranged by Thran’s Flowers. My friend Lauren was the mastermind behind our save-the-date and invitation/RSVP

511 - tiara2.jpgBefore the wedding our party headed to a local meadow to snap a few photos. I rocked a lovely strapless number by Marisa. The bridesmaids wore silk chiffon dresses in graphite from jcrew. They each picked out their own style - LOVE! Shoes: Nina 'Forbes' Peep Toe. The groomsmen rocked charcoal grey suits from a local shop -- Side Street Boutique. Everything came together beautifully! 

512 - tiara3.jpgWedding decor... who knew we would DIY our own centerpieces, guest book and cupcake stand? Guests climbed A Mountain TOGET+HER and dined at tables named after various mountain peaks in Tahoe! Yours truly burned each name into mini rounds Nick cut from Aspen branches (there might be an Etsy shop in my near future). Instead of a traditional guest book we had a wishing jar (top left) and provided our guests with colored pencils to write sweet nothings or draw pictures. Next to the card basket (lower right) were pictures of our parents and grandparents on their wedding day (lower left). Oh and I can't forget the party favors -- local spices Tahoe Blend and Tahoe Taco from Heart Rock Herb and Spice Co. (upper right). 

513 - tiara4.jpgAs mentioned above, Nick and I made our cupcake stand. Aren't we crafty! Guests had their pick of treats between mini cupcakes and cake truffles from Cakes by Grace

The flavors went something like this: 

  • Red velvet cake truffles with white chocolate and red coral design
  • Champagne cake truffles with white chocolate and white glitter 
  • Almond mini cupcakes with Italian buttercream and ganache drizzle
  • Chocolate mini cupcakes with raspberry filling and chocolate buttercream 
  • Lemon mini cupcakes with lemon mousse and zested Italian buttercream cream cheese frosting. 

*Plus, we cut a vanilla cake with mousse filling and Italian buttercream.
