One week before the wedding, Ironic began carefully monitoring the weather to ensure a smooth and safe arrival for all vendors, including Christian Oth, Blueprint Studios & Events, Hensley Event Resources, Javier Valentino, Jacob Co Creative, Banga Booth, DJ Brian B, DJ Digital Dave, Storybox Cinema, Nayri - The Wedding Fashion Expert, and The Jordan Kahn Music Company. The main concern was a potential snowstorm on the travel days leading up to the event, which could have caused issues on the route to the venue, located at an elevation of 7000 feet north of Lake Tahoe. Despite this potential risk, Ironic was able to successfully plan and execute a smooth load-in for all vendors.

In the days leading up to the wedding, Ironic provided daily weather reports to Andrea and her vendors, detailing a significant snowstorm that was forecasted with 90% accuracy to hit their exact location and altitude on the wedding day. These reports included information about the expected accumulation of over 4 feet of snow, icy conditions, freezing temperatures, sustained winds of 20-35 mph, and gusts that could reach over 50 mph. It was clear that this weather would pose a major challenge for the wedding and required careful planning and preparation to ensure the safety and success of the event.

Due to the forecasted weather, Andrea took extra precautions to ensure the safety and comfort of all guests, vendors, and staff. She added additional staff and implemented snow removal and heating systems to prepare for the potentially hazardous conditions. With these measures in place, Andrea and her team were able to successfully navigate the challenges posed by the snowstorm and ensure the smooth execution of the wedding. Despite the adverse weather, Andrea's careful planning and attention to detail enabled the event to be a success.
