Allison Keasal, was an amazing Event Planner and made sure all logistics at the resort went flawlessly. We had the most amazing strawberries in our wedding colors as a gift from Allison and the resort in our room. This property and staff was simply amazing a must experience.

My son and daughter-in-law were recently married at The Resort, and it was more than we had even dreamed possible. From the first email inquiry to the final contact with the billing department, every person we worked with was professional and truly invested in making sure that... Read More the event was what we wanted. We felt throughout the entire process that we were all on the same side and working towards the same goal. Allison Keasal, the Special Events Manager, was amazing. She was so flexible and patient with our many questions, and her "can do" attitude was contagious. Carrie DeMange, the Revenue Manager, handled the room reservations with such ease - even though we had many people coming and going on different days that led to many special requests and changes. Allison and Carrie made all of the details fit into place behind the scenes so that we could truly enjoy the day. The venue was everything we knew it would be. We’ve been visiting The Resort for years, and because it represents such special memories for our family it was the easy choice for the wedding weekend. The gorgeous location, delicious food, and wonderful people provided the bride and groom with the perfect day.

Our summer wedding at the Resort at Squaw Creek was a fairy tale. The venue itself is gorgeous, and the staff are all wonderful. Working with Allison Keasal was a joy. She was very personable and made sure that after each meeting she had gotten down all of your wants and... Read More wishes. Some weeks communication was a little slower than others, but coming from Silicon Valley I can expect we have high expectations. The wedding planning was fun. Which cannot always be said about weddings. The fact that the Resort took care of the venue, the tables, the chairs, the drinks, the food, the cake, and even the linens and AV, made our lives so much easier. Allison was pretty much our wedding planner. She was the one who worked with all of the other vendors and staff that were involved. The only item that could be improved is the room blocks and the communications surrounding them. Weekly updates on room status would have been nice. Yet on the flip side our room was gorgeous, and it was so nice to get ready just an elevator ride away from the venue. The day of went amazingly smooth. Everything was set up as we had discussed and I never once had to discuss anything with the venue staff. Allison and the behind the scenes staff knew what they were doing. Honestly, the day of I forgot they were even there. Things just went that smoothly. I would highly recommend this venue for any couple looking to have a gorgeous wedding in the Sierras. Allison and her team were wonderful to work with and our wedding day could not have been more memorable. Thank you RASC!

Challenging planning, stunning event

Reviewed on 7/17/2014 Dan T

My wife and I chose the Resort at Squaw Creek as our wedding venue due to its stunning views of Squaw Valley. When we first talked to them, we said that we had a very specific and personal menu that we wanted to re-create and they were totally open to it. We ended up choosing... Read More the entire menu and wine list and they brought in the wines we wanted as well, so everything was custom. Most venues won't be nearly so flexible, and this was our main deciding factor of choosing Squaw. The quality of food was incredible, and the culinary team did an amazing job interpreting and re-creating our menu. The planning of the wedding unfortunately was quite difficult. Our first wedding coordinator left the Resort just after we negotiated and signed all of our contracts, and our account was passed off to a new employee. As we were planning our wedding from across the country, this presented numerous challenges, and we had to walk the employee through everything all over again, re-discuss, and re-negotiate all of our contracts. She finally got up to speed and had everything rolling smoothly until...three weeks before our wedding she also quit suddenly, and our account was passed on yet again. Fortunately, the new coordinator had at least participated in our tasting so had an idea of our vision, and assured us she would help us make a successful event. Unfortunately, we had to go through the whole process of discussing and negotiating our contract yet again, which was hugely stressful just before our wedding. At the end of it all, we got the wedding we wanted and had originally discussed, at the price we had originally agreed upon, but it was far from being easy. The Resort is a beautiful venue and we had our reception in the Cascades Restaurant, which was an excellent room lending itself to our lounge-style setup. Only criticism is that the room is somewhat dated and tired; the chairs inside were very ugly, the ceiling is pretty low and unattractive, but we made do and had a beautiful event nonetheless. Squaw was the right choice for the venue and quality of food and hopefully it was just a fluke that we went through three wedding coordinators, but it is imperative to get every possible aspect/price of your contract spelled out in case the same happens in the future.
