Unique Chalet View Lodge Wedding

March 22, 2022

Monica and David’s first official date was her senior prom in 2011, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Their wedding is absolutely our number one favorite wedding of 2021 because of how big and intense it was. It started off with an incredible Italian rehearsal dinner that ended with karaoke, continued with a full Ho-down on their wedding day, and ended with a Chalet View Lodge wedding. It was such a blast to work with Monica and David.

Unique Wedding Day Events

We loved the Ho-down Monica and David hosted for the wedding day. It included a live band, food truck, petting zoo, and even a mechanical bull. Watching people try out the mechanical bull, including Monica, was so much fun.

Monica and David also made a music video with their guests. It included the first dances, but they also danced with each table. They strategically sat their guests, so they could be grouped together by songs that connected them to the couple. Some of the groups even had props like glasses, money guns, and fake pizzas. We thought it was such a unique idea.

Chalet View Lodge Wedding

Monica and David chose a Chalet View Lodge wedding because of the venue’s beauty, majestic scenery, amazing staff, and no curfew rule. They really wanted an entire day and night of joy, laughter, and dancing. This couple was so excited to see everyone together, including friends and family that aren’t usually in the same room.

They added their personality to every detail of the wedding. Monica somersaulted back down the aisle after the ceremony was over. The wedding cake had sparklers attached to it. Their food and drink signs were personalized. It was just an amazing day for an amazing couple.

We loved working with Monica and David, and we love working on unique weddings that really represent the couple’s personalities. If you’re planning your own wedding, say hello! We’d love to hear all about it.
