Shannon Schumacher – Event Planning Manager AKA The Wedding Whisperer

” Coming from Colorado, my background in planning meaningful and successful weddings and events goes deeper than just a white dress. I transferred from my financial banking background to bridal by first selecting  gowns and styling brides like they do on the show “Say Yes to the Dress.” I was so inspired working with brides during this special time in their lives that I soon began assisting them in planning and producing their wedding days – from the dress to the desserts and on to the dance floor!

I ventured West, joining the Ridge Tahoe family of professionals in the summer of 2016, and I have had the honor of working with over 50 couples thus far as they made their way to the aisle. There is a good reason lovebirds choose to wed at this heavenly mountain resort, and it isn’t just the view! We are experienced and willing to craft individualized wedding concepts to truly capture each couples’ love story, and we do so with attention to detail, composure and compassion, and aptitude at this altitude!

When I am not planning weddings, I wear my “mom hat” while taking care of my two beautiful daughters, ages 3 and 6. You will likely find us with our toes in the sand or singing to the stars, taking in all the beauty of this majestic place called Lake Tahoe, our home.

You and your family will be well taken care of at the Ridge Tahoe; coming to us with hopes and dreams, reveling in celebration, and leaving with memories that will last lifetimes…

Cheers to a pristine 2018 and beyond! “
