Welcome back to another installment of Real Weddings Magazine’s Partner Profiles!
Today, we highlight Brett Lynnly Sneed, Group Sales Manager, from Northstar-at Tahoe Resort. We had the pleasure of working with Brett and the team at Northstar this past fall when we did our cover model photo shoot there, and we can confirm that Brett is one rockin’ cool chick! Take it away Brett!

Tell us a little about your company? One of the finest year-round mountain resorts in North America, Northstar Resort is host to a new base area village featuring 35 unique shops and restaurants, a conference center, 9,000 square foot skating rink, on-site lodging, special events and more.
What sets you apart from your competition? Guests enjoy a fun-filled weekend of activities at the best Village at a Resort in California; not to mention fishing, hiking, mountain biking, golf, swimming, tennis and horseback-riding. Did I mention affordable lodging options – the Ritz-Carlton all on site?
Where do you find inspiration? I am inspired by the excitement in each and every bride and groom I have the pleasure of meeting — it truly drives my passion.
Do you have any hidden talents? You mean like cool party tricks? I can pat my head and rub my tummy at the SAME time. Does that count?
What trend do you see upcoming? Family style catered meals at dinner.
Do you regularly blog? What’s your blog site? Yes, it’s MyNorthstarWedding.com
What’s your favorite local restaurant? Mikuni Sushi in the Village at Northstar
What’s your favorite local charity? Brides Against Breast Cancer (bridesagainstbreastcancer.org)
What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? Snorkeling in Lake Tahoe, you don’t see any fish but I have a good imagination.
Do you have secret vice or indulgence? What is it? New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, yum
What are you most grateful for in life? To be in the Wedding business of course!
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what elements would be most important to you? I just planned my wedding a few summers ago and the coolest element for me was surprising my husband with a bagpiper during the ceremony (he is Irish and we met on St. Patrick’s Day). He was so touched and had to fight back tears!
What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Make it personal.
Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s brides? A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong.
