What do you love about Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra? Our access to recreational activities is unbelievable.  There is something for everyone – the snow enthusiasts to the hiking, golfing anglers. Bringing your closest loved ones to do the things you love to do, in one of the most beautiful places in North America – that is a recipe for an unforgettable time. Where are some of your favorite group activities in the region? Paddle-board yoga, group fly-fishing lesson, a group hike followed by a picnic and/or pedicure at one of our local spas (my favorite bachelorette activity). Your best advice for people visiting Mammoth Lakes for the first time? Wear sunscreen and stay hydrated, and make sure all your guests do also…so that everyone can enjoy their time here. And make sure there is a lot of photo memory space available on your phone.:) What are Some of the Hottest Wedding Trends You’re Seeing? I am seeing a return to entertainment and experiences.  Couples want their weddings to be memorable and uniques experiences.  Hence their decision to bring all their guests to this beautiful area.  More and more, they are including roving entertainers, fun themes, fun decor, live bands.  Instead of rehearsal dinners, we are seeing group gatherings or hikes.
