The Lake Tahoe and Truckee river valley have beautiful settings for weddings. Often, much time is spent scouting for these properties. Stephanie found this splendid riverside location for her wedding. The design speaks for itself. The sound of the water gave a peaceful soothing sound as a backdrop of the rest of the warm afternoon and evening of events with friends & family. This was recently published in The Knot’s 2014 winter issue.

Lake Tahoe Wedding | Brian & Jessica Wedding
This Rubicon Bay on Lake Tahoe‘s west shore is one of the most beautiful areas on the lake. The golden sandy beaches and tropical water meets pine trees and meadows making it a perfect place to have a wedding isolated from the rest of the world.
One Fine Day Events helped the couple incorporate a Tuscan theme into the entire wedding. Similar to a Lake Como backdrop, the ceremony was set on the lake, cocktails amongst the old growth pine trees, and dinner on the lawn under a romantic canopy of lights. Later the beach was transformed into a wonderful sunset reception with dancing and live music. A perfect end to a wonderful day!

I’m very excited to announce that our A Lovely Creation Central Coast Experience is happening October 27-30th for wedding industry creatives/photographers! More details at the website. There are only 8 rooms available in the estate, and a select few single day seats open. So this will be a small group of less than 12 people per day to allow for important fellowship and space to watch & learn!
This event is a blend of our “Italy Experience” workshops with a fall California theme. The all inclusive or single day registration opens Wednesday at 8am! There are 3 days of styled shoots along with an perfect blend of retreat, fellowship, worship, inspiration staying alongside the creating theme.
Everything about this week will be clearing the way and simplifying to be a better creator. We’ll be emphasizing a proper life/work balance, and be opposed to hype, and frills that tell us to compare ourselves with others and do what everyone else does. We will be developing who we were created to be, unique, different, serving and doing what we in a creative way that gives us freedom and brings joy.
I look forward to seeing you there! Please email us for any questions!

Sonoma Wedding | Nate & Stacy Wedding
This private estate in Sonoma is one of the largest land properties stretching from the 37 to the top of the 116. They had the weekend surrounding their house built towards the end of the nineteen fourties overlooking sears point raceway. They also incorporated their family ranch barn, and the Zephyr tent for the reception, ending back into a transformed upscale barn/cocktail lounge and an incredible live band. Dinner overlooked the vineyards and was nestled between the hills on the east side of Sonoma. This complex and detailed weekend was amazingly planned and exectuted by Kelly with A Savvy. They did an incredible job with the styling & design of the entire event. The natural light pouring through the curtains during the ceremony with the open sides of the structure caused the flowers and seating to be bright and breath taking. The night was effortlessly romantic and truly an event that everyone who celebrated will remember forever.
