bride and groom and wedding party at ridge tahoe garden wedding

Having our wedding at The Ridge was the best decision we could have made. From the views, to the food to the staff, it was a truly unforgettable night that we will forever cherish and remember the people who helped make it our happily ever after.

Your wedding day is the day you dream of from when you’re a little girl. However, when you’re that little girl you don’t realize everything that goes into making these beautiful weddings possible. My husband and I just said “I Do” on May 04, 2018 at The Ridge Resort in Lake Tahoe, and let me tell you, what an amazing experience this was. We came to the Ridge hoping we could make this dream wedding work into our budget. Blair Butler was extremely helpful in sending over pricing details and getting us set up for a tasting event before we confirmed our booking. At the event, we got to meet Executive Chef Stephen Moise, and all I can say is wow, he is truly inspiring and you can tell he loves what he does! If we had been on the fence at all about booking with The Ridge, he would have changed our mind. I remember him saying “just because you get a buffet at a wedding, does not mean it should taste like buffet food.” The food as promised tasted the same if not better than when we tried it, and that is what all our guests kept saying throughout the night — “That was some of the best wedding food we’ve had,” or “the food was delicious.”

bride and groom say i do at the ridge tahoeIt takes an army to put together a wedding and we were lucky enough to have this army being led by Shannon Schumacher. She was absolutely amazing from that first email congratulating us on our upcoming wedding to the day of the wedding. There are not enough good things I can say about Shannon that can put into words how much we truly enjoyed working for her. She took the normal wedding stress away from me so that I could focus on the day itself and remembering every detail. I know she could not do this all alone so I want to take a little time to thank her team who helped make this day amazing. We want to thank Tom Heely, our Banquet Captain during the reception, he made sure everything was going per plan and all of guests and ourselves had everything they needed. As well as Yvonne our Banquet Captain for the rehearsal dinner, she was so sweet and accommodating to our party’s needs.

Sharon Rusk, thank you for a lovely ceremony, it was designed to suite mine and Larry’s wishes but still captured the traditions we wanted. Rachel Lomeli, you are an amazing photographer, you made us feel comfortable and made what could be an awkward hour of photos fly by feeling natural. Finally to our musicians and DJ, Bart Libby; our guests loved the hours you played for them during the cocktail hour and our ceremony music was exactly as we requested. To Derek Tarpey our DJ you kept our reception on track to make sure we got done everything we needed to do without it feeling like we were on a schedule. You are incredibly entertaining and we thoroughly enjoyed your playlist for the night.
