Beth Hill

Beth brings love of people, keen organizational skills and passion for quality to the Merrily Wed® team. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Arizona State University and her Master of Arts in Teaching/Elementary Education from Sierra Nevada College. Since moving to Lake Tahoe in 2004, she has simultaneously been part of the event industry by working first hand at private events and weddings. 

Her friendly, hard-working and detail-oriented manner is invaluable as a lead planner and her always calming presence clients have treasured. Beth loves the anticipation before the ceremony and personally feels the chills every time she sends a bride down the aisle. It is a privilege to her to be an instrumental part in a couple’s wedding day and this honor is rivaled only by the pride she takes in every effort in the months before to make their wedding vision come true.

Beth resides on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe with her little girl and husband. She is a movie line aficionado, especially Jim Carrey movies, and can’t resist picking up pennies on the ground because her mom always told her that angels left them for her.


Pam Schmidt

Pam brings a valuable combination of organization, cheerfulness and resourcefulness to her talents as a wedding planner. In 2004 she started her career in event planning at the Double Eagle Resort and Spa in June Lake, California. This led to becoming the event coordinator at Martis Camp Lake Tahoe, before finally joining the team at Merrily Wed®. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Over the past 10 years she has developed skills essential for a wedding planner to perform efficiently and effectively under pressure. All the while impacting a calm presence with her clients so they confidently know their big day will be everything they envision and more.

Pam is charming, easy going and works well with all personality types. Eager to please, she makes sure to make her attention to detail her number one priority. She loves working one on one with couples to make sure they fully enjoy the wedding planning process and their wedding day.
