Tahoe Lyfe Weddings
From historic lodges and castles in the sky right down to the sandy beaches of Lake Tahoe, the options are limitless for beautiful locations to tie the knot. Here are some featured properties that offer the perfect backdrop for you to start your life as a couple:
Emerald Bay– This unique location is a popular place to exchange vows because of its incredible views of the azure waters below. Plus, the historic Fannett Island placed in the middle of the beautiful emerald-colored bay makes this part of Tahoe one of the most photographed places in the world. Emerald Bay is a top choice for those wanting a low-key ceremony in a striking setting.
Sugar Pine State Park– Keep going along Tahoe’s west shore and find a classic backdrop for an elegant wedding at the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion at Sugar Pine Point State Park. Built in 1903, the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion takes you back in time as you say “I Do” on the property wedged between the Sierra Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and natural beauty of the environment around it.
North Tahoe Event Center– Located right on the sandy beaches of the North Shore in the heart of Kings Beach, this unique facility features floor to ceiling windows framing the lake and an in-house catering service called Bella Affair dedicated to serving up the perfect cuisine for your guests. The Event Center is less than a mile away from the state line, with many activities and amenities available close by giving you the opportunity to design a unique wedding package for an unforgettable event.
The Chateau at Incline Village– Amongst the pines in Nevada lies the famed Championship Golf Course and a 5,200-square-foot Grand Ballroom/clubhouse overlooking its 18th hole (and provides a peek of the lake). The Chateau features large stone fireplaces, vaulted timber ceilings, and expansive decks with the option to divide the space into multiple rooms depending on the size of your ceremony.
Thunderbird Lodge– Called the “Castle in the Sky”, this 70-year-old stone house is truly an enchanting property with its waterfront gazebo, gardens, waterfalls, and stone path walkways. Back in 1936, San Francisco millionaire George Whittell Jr. spared no expense when creating his Lake Tahoe dream home, which happens to be ideally situated for your special day. As an added bonus, a portion of your wedding fees is tax-deductible since it is managed by the Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society.
The Landing Resort and Spa– The calming effect of the lake set against this 5-star boutique hotel will make you and your guests forget about the hustle and bustle of South Shore casinos (even though they’re within walking distance for after-ceremony events). A romantic and elegant wedding reception overlooking the lake and mountains of West Shore matched with a unique dining experience and accommodations ensures that you and your guests will get a real glimpse into true Tahoe Lyfe. One bride who recently got married at The Landing in August 2017 says that this unique resort gave her “the perfect day”.
