Hi Wedding Bloggers!

My name is Shannon Wilhite , The Ridge Tahoe’s Summer 2014 intern in our wedding department.  I will be assisting Wendy Smith, Event Planning Manager here at the Ridge, as well as Blair Varela, Group Sales Manager this summer.  I am looking forward to updating you all with our latest wedding ceremonies and receptions we have  hosted, giving you a glimpse of what The Ridge Tahoe  has to offer.  


So far my first wedding experiences here at The Ridge have been very exciting! From the rehearsals, to the wedding ceremonies, to the receptions, I have learned a great deal of what goes into making everything come together!  From behind the scenes of the perspective through my iPhone, I had a chance to snap some pictures of my first experiences here.

Please excuse the blurriness, I am a far better assistant coordinator than I am photographer!
