Elisa and Ryan wanted to throw one amazing Lake Tahoe wedding weekend for their guests... and they did just that. The couple contacted One Fine Day Events to design and plan their weekend from the welcome party at the Historic Thunderbird Lodge, ceremony at St. Nicholas Episcopalian Church and reception at West Shore Cafe. First in this two day post, the festivities began with a 1920's inspired welcome party. From the music to the decor to the food, everything incorporated the 1920's..speakeasy and all! See the gallery below from Catherine Hall Studios and check back tomorrow for Elisa and Ryan's Lake Tahoe wedding day. 35_CatherineHall_Heslop_WPLake Tahoe Wedding Welcome Party25_CatherineHall_Heslop_WP26_CatherineHall_Heslop_WP27_CatherineHall_Heslop_WP Guests arrived to the historic lodge and were greeted with refreshing prohibition cocktails.
