Pine Rose Cabins Wedding in Lake Arrowhead

"We really wanted something very woodsy and whimsical. We wanted somewhere that everyone could be close by and stay. Once we toured Pine Rose we fell in love. It was the woodsy venue of our dreams! The other venue we liked the look of did not have a bridal suite and you had to get ready elsewhere and show up ready to go. One thing we loved about Pine Rose was the bridal suite to get ready upstairs and then you walk down the aisle straight from the cabin. The guys have a space to get ready downstairs and then you get to stay the night in that same cabin attached to your venue, so perfect." -bride & groom

"Everything will feel so important but realistically if you don't have the money, those things won't be missed. We upgraded on food because prime rib sounded so delicious and then both of us were too excited to even eat. It was definitely something we could have saved money on because everything our vendor had was delicious and it wouldn't have been missed. We skipped on favors to save money and used our Photo Booth as favors which I think worked out well because that's what people really keep is the pictures. Have fun, I know its stressful sometimes! I promised it will feel like its never going to all come together- and then suddenly it just does. If you can splurge on something, splurge on an at least day of coordinator- the most amazing part of my wedding is I just got to be a bride and spend time (which flies by, everyone will tell you that, they aren't lying) with my new husband. My planner handled all the vendor coordination, payments, tips, timeline, everything. I just showed up, married the love of my life, and partied the night away."
