West Shore & Tahoe City Weddings

Lake Tahoe weddings create a special kind of magic. Every season offers something special, from icicles in trees, glorious floral color burst in alpine meadows and the shimmer of autumn’s golden aspen leaves. Tahoe City weddings have all that and more. The backdrop for your nuptials can vary. It could easily be the shimmering blue lake water, a mountainous ski resort, beside the Truckee River or at an historic venue.

Tahoe City weddings work for simple elopements or grand affairs. Slip into a chapel for an intimate wedding, or book the entire Granlibakken Lodge for family and friends to enjoy the full Lake Tahoe experience – complete with its own ski lift and spa. Rustic lakeshore charm for perfect for a woodsy wedding can also be found at the Sunnyside Resort. Keeping the ceremony, reception and lodging at the same location typically holds down costs on many Tahoe City weddings.

I Do’s said under a canopy of soaring pines lit by the bright sun or twinkling stars can be found at venues like River Grill. Altars are set facing the flow of the Truckee River as it approaches Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe City Weddings Aren’t New

Lake Tahoe’s history of the mid-19th to early-20th centuries attracts many brides and grooms. Tahoe City weddings at William B. Layton Park, home to the Gatekeeper’s Museum and Marion Steinbach Indian Basket Museum, bring an experience not found anywhere else. Set up a band by the lake and let guests wander through the museums. Historic venues work with their own purveyors from caterers to florists.

Speaking of vacation houses, several rentals allow you to hold your wedding on the lawns. Be sure to check first with your rental agent. Hiring a local wedding coordinator will ensure all details, like getting a marriage license in Placer County, California, are done correctly.
