The Mourelatos family is proud to announce the marriage of Andreas Mourelatos and Nicole Brand.

Andreas is the eldest grandson of Andreas and Mary Mourelatos, who purchased the Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort in Tahoe Vista, California, 37 years ago.

On Aug. 16, 2014 the happy couple fulfilled their wish to marry on the scenic, private beach that has come to mean so much to the family and to scores of visitors each year.

The wedding weekend began with a Greek-themed rehearsal dinner celebration complete with a whole roasted lamb on a spit, Greek music and lots of ouzo to go around. The wedding and reception were a formal affair with guests in attendance from the Reno area, California, Texas and even Paris, France. A lovely tribute was given to Andreas Mourelatos, the patriarch of the Mourelatos family, who unfortunately passed away a week before the wedding.
