What a beautiful location for your wedding! You'll receive the best service with a view of the mountains. I love performing at Sugar Bowl!
Sugar Bowl is one of the most beautiful wedding locations I have ever shot at. The scenery and landscapes are breath taking! On top of that Meghon, Amanda and the staff are very helpful, organized, and friendly. They make everything run smoothly and seamlessly so that you dont have to stress about anything. I love how the team works with all the other vendors to make sure the wedding is perfect for the couple!
