Venue: The Chateau at Incline Village, Lake Tahoe
Florist: Sierra Floral Design
Wedding Planner: Weddings by Shannon
Cake: Made by two of the brides friends


Lisa is a Northern California native who moved to Tahoe about 4 years ago to teach snowboarding at Northstar Resort in Tahoe. Ryan is originally from Albury, Australia, and moved to Tahoe to work at,you guessed it...Northstar. They met one night at a bar and have pretty much been inseparable ever since. One night while they were walking around Lake Tahoe, Ryan walked Lisa out on a dock and asked her to marry him just as the sun was setting. She said yes, and they promptly went to the pub to celebrate with a beer. They are both the kind of people who have a million friends and are so fun and likable that everyone wants to be around them. A lot of Ryan's "mates" even flew all the way out from Australia just to attend the wedding! Because Ryan's family all lives in Australia, Lisa hadn't met his family until about a week before the wedding. It was really great to see the two families meet and get along so well. The wedding seemed to be a all about friends and family. Two of Lisa's friends made the cake, mutual friends played instruments during the ceremony. It was a small and personal wedding, that turned into one of the best dance parties ever. All in all, it was a beautiful day and an absolute blast.

How fun! I just love Tahoe! Used to live up there. I was in a wedding up at Incline last year but it was at the Hyatt. The snow shots are awesome!
