It’s true what they say..
Your wedding day will not be exactly how you picture it. I was told this from the moment I was engaged. Something always happens & you can’t let that ruin your day.
Now my wedding was on October 27, 2019.
I had selected The Pines Resort because it is BEAUTIFUL, the views, the lakeside, forest trees, everything is so whimsical.
Jessica (wedding coordinator) is the best & most responsive person I had during my 2 year engagement.
My husband & I originally selected September of 2018 to get married but I had fallen severely ill , during that time Jessica was able to postpone my date, when we spoke & met again she asked & checked in to see how I was feeling. She never forgot a single detail I mentioned to her.
Now on the day before our wedding, pg&e decided to shut off power the day off our wedding throughout the mountains.
This was it, the big day, & now there was no power.
The moment Jessica was informed, she let us know right away the best way to take action to keep the day running as smoothly as possible. We moved from the deck(stunning) to the lakeview room (gorgeous) because it was on generator.
As the girls & I were getting ready for the day, the power shut down, thankfully some of us were already ready to go, Jessica was sure to call whenever there was an update, I mean common there wasn’t any power & I was flippin out! She brought over to my room some potatoes(my favorite) to calm my nerves & assured me the day would run smooth. She’s a pro you guys! She pulled a master piece out of thin air!
When my DJ had no power she had a speaker ready to go, when my song didn’t load for my grand entrance, she had a similar song already downloaded & ready to go! This is the woman who makes dreams come true.
When my bustle busted , she ran into another room & pinned my dress back together.
When my family was getting too far into the bubblies she was able to control the best she could & get the timeline flowin.
When they say your day won’t be exactly how you picture it to be, it’s true.
For me it wasn’t but I’m thankful to have had Jessica every step of the way because she made it perfect! My husband & I have nothing but great memories because she took care of everything & that allowed us to be present & I would go through the day all over again if I could.Sent on 11/06/2019

Beautiful view and professional staff
I can not thank the staff enough for everything they did for to make sure our wedding went amazing. Jessica, the coordinator, was awesome with checking in and making sure last minute things were out and ready to go! I personally felt so unorganized but all my guests complimented me on how organized they felt it was so the staff was on it! Our timeline ended up changing last minute due to the heat with pictures but it was easy to talk it out and make the rest of the night run smoothly. I would recommend this venue for any wedding. The honeymoon suite was perfect and you can make it into a nice little vacation!Sent on 09/03/2019

Such an amazing experience!
If you are at all on the fence about booking your wedding at the Pines Resort, DO IT. I don't even know where to start on what a pleasant, professional, reasonable, well-done, AMAZING experience it was.
Their wedding coordinator, Jessica, is quite possibly the best person I have ever worked with. She was responsive from the get-go... emailed back right away and hopped on a phone call to answer all of our initial questions up front. And then throughout the entire planning process she was so available, she never made me feel dumb for any of my questions, and made great recommendations about everything. She was so genuine and kind and easy to work with, my husband and I couldn't stop saying how lucky we were! Her and her assistant are a well-oiled machine when it comes to day-of... I legit had not a worry in the world because I knew they would be taking care of us.
The food here is also FANTASTIC. We met the chef at our tasting and immediately felt in good hands... the food was delicious and you could tell the pride he takes in his work. Still to this day (2 mos later) people that attended are RAVING about the food! It was stellar.
Jessica and her whole team will seriously make you feel so capable and at ease. Our wedding was everything we could have imagined and more, and it's all thanks to The Pines and the team they have there. Aside from being a stunning location, they really take care of you. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!Sent on 09/12/2019
The Pines Resort Price Rates
I always love shooting at The Pines Resort, but one things that sticks out THE MOST about this venue is that my couples CANNOT STOP RAVING about the amazing service they receive here! I was so impressed this summer as I watched my couples pampered.. from doing portraits by the lake and having champagne, water and snacks brought down to constant but non-intrusive attention throughout the ceremony, I am THOROUGHLY impressed. If you are looking for a stunningly gorgeous location for photography backdrops and an amazingly attentive staff, look no further! You cannot go wrong with The Pines! <3
I have had the pleasure of photographing a few weddings at The Pines and it is always a great experience for all!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
