Thank you so much for the amazing wedding you helped us create and execute! Patrick and I have said at least 100 times that our wedding was perfect. Everyone had a phenomenal time, loved the venue, and thought the food was fantastic. We couldn't have made all of our wedding dreams a reality without you! The day was absolutely magical and we wouldn't have wanted to have our wedding anywhere else or in any other way than how it turned out (even with the spontaneous blizzard) ;). I know you and the staff put a lot of effort and preparation into our day, and from the bottom of my heart I want to thank you and everyone else for everything they did. I hope you can share our thanks with all the staff and let them know how much we loved our wedding. - Bethany P.

Awesome venue and staff! Squaw was great to work with from the first time we contacted them through the entire wedding process. Brooke helped book our date and she and the Squaw team were very willing to work with us on some of our concerns about venue and costs. After we were booked we were put in touch with Katie, who was absolutely fabulous to work with! She was so accommodating to us and our family throughout the entire process and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to work with her. Our tasting with Katie and the chef was great and we were thrilled they offered a BBQ buffet option as this was the thing my now husband really wanted. For a venue that provides their own catering, the food really was fantastic. We had a ton of compliments on the food and my only regret was not asking for a special "bride and groom to-go box". We were also so excited to have our ceremony and reception at High Camp. Our "dream" wedding was a mountain top ceremony and Squaw absolutely delivered. Our guests got to take the Tram to the top which was such a fun touch to a wedding. The views from the top were awesome and clear and the Terrace room provided more sweeping views of Lake Tahoe and the mountains without the wind. The other awesome thing about the Squaw venue was The Village. So many restaurant selections, hotels, shops, etc for the guests to enjoy and not have to drive anywhere! Also super close to Tahoe City with free shuttle in summer. - Heather A.

We had the most scenic and fun wedding — which was exactly what we had hoped for. Katie’s wonderfully friendly demeanor and tireless attention to detail is what made it possible, though. When I learned that she has something like 17 other weddings this summer, I was blown away, because she always gave us the feeling that we were getting 100% of her attention and effort! Your organization and your clients are lucky to have her as the point person, ensuring that everything goes off without a hitch! We’re happy to recommend Squaw Valley and Katie Ross to anyone who asks. - Bret D.
