I had my wedding here on 2nd October and it was such an amazing day. I can't praise the hotel and the staff enough! The hotel and surroundings are just stunning and it really does look just as amazing as in the photographs. My wedding photographs are amazing given the stunning location and surrounding mountains! Obama was staying here the day we got married so it was a little chaotic getting into the place with security searches, sniffer dogs and secret Service staff everywhere but it certainly was an experience. The staff handled it exceptionally well and i was still made to feel the day was all about me - even though the president was staying!
I didn't actually stay the night here but i was given a suite to get ready in and the room was amazing with gorgeous views out over the lake. The whole place was immacculate and the grounds were well maintained.
We had our wedding meal in Rick's Cafe. Rick's Cafe makes it sound like some sort of little bistro but the place was lovely. We had our own seating area which was sectioned off from the main area by white drapes - all very tranquil and exotic! The food was delicious and there was pleanty of it (by british standards anyway!). We had our own bar staff and it seemed i had my own personal waiter too - unfortunately i can't remember his name but he ensured my drinks were always topped up and was even there to push my chair in each time i got back to my seat - very attentive!
The only downside to the food was that a few of my guests commented that they couldn't have their steak well cooked and it had to be brought out to them first and then they had to send it back to get it well done. I didn't find out about this until the next day thought and although it wasn't a major issue - just something my guests commented on!
The resort also provided my wedding cake, which again, was amazing. Fluffy light sponge, filled with strawberries and topped with a gorgeous white chocolate icing. Shame i only got to have one slice as my Husband ate the rest of it back at our hotel room - and he doesn't even have a sweet tooth apparently?!!
Overall, our wedding day was amazing from start to finish. We stayed on the strip and only came to the resort for the day to get married but it was wonderful to get away from the craziness of the strip and step into this calm oasis. It's just a shame that the day went so quick and i didn't feel i got to experience all that this resort had to offer. At sunset, the firepits were all lit and people were relaxing outside having a few drinks. I'd already arranged transport for my guests back to the strip so didn't stay late into the evening. I would definately recommend staying here if you want to relax in peaceful sorroundings with stunning views. It is about 30 - 40 minutes away from the strip so if you want to neon lights and bustling atmostphere of the strip then you're unlikely to find it here. I will always have fond memories of this place. A place where i had my dream wedding and a place which far outweighed my expectations. If you're thinking of getting married here, you wont be dissappointed!
