Vintage Wedding at West Shore Cafe

January 11, 2022

Andre first saw Simone in a class they took together at SFSU, but fate brought them back together a year later through a dating app. Years later, Andre orchestrated a romantic proposal at the top of the South Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge. He scheduled it for a weekend that her parents would be there and even managed to get her out of work early. After she said yes, they “stumbled upon” a gorgeous picnic on the beach that their parents had set up for them. So, this past August, they had an amazing wedding at West Shore Cafe and created a weekend full of activities for their friends and family.

Picking Their Lake Tahoe Venue

Lake Tahoe is Simone and Andre’s special place. They’ve been coming to Lake Tahoe for both summer and winter since the beginning of their relationship. They have so many incredible memories here that picking Lake Tahoe for their wedding location was an easy decision.

They looked at so many venues in North Lake and South Lake, but they struggled to find the one venue they truly loved. Simone came back with her mother and Andre’s mother for more scouting, and they came across West Shore Cafe. Simone says she knew it was perfect the second she walked in. She FaceTimed with Andre, and they locked in their date that day.

Wedding at West Shore Café

After getting ready, Simone and Andre had a first touch and then a first look in their reception space. It was such a beautiful moment, especially since they read letters from each other. For their wedding, they really wanted to focus on celebrating their love and enjoying all of their hard work in wedding planning.

For their wedding day aesthetic, they really wanted a vintage-modern style, and it was important to them to tie in nature. They went with a mustard yellow, linen grey, navy blue, sage green, and white color palette, which worked well together.

Simone and Andre’s wedding was so beautiful and full of love. We loved having the opportunity to work with them. We’d love the opportunity to work with you too! We’re currently booking 2022 and 2023, so be sure to reach out!
