Lake Tahoe Wedding Venues

If you are looking for Lake Tahoe wedding venues the list below breaks them down into South and North Lake Tahoe. The lake itself is known for the pristine clarity of its water as well as the mountains surrounding it. Popular year round for all types of water sports, it is also a popular year round wedding destination. Let’s take a look at some of the best Lake Tahoe Wedding Venues.

South Lake Tahoe Wedding Venues

Black Bear Lodge

1202 Ski Run Blvd; South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

For those having a smaller wedding, Black Bear Lodge is an excellent choice. This is a one of the more quaint and charming Lake Tahoe wedding venues that is perfect for a late Fall or Winter wedding. The beautiful lodge consists of open space with a rock fireplace while the grounds are framed by large pines. Rental includes a large bridal suite, wedding coordinator, and outdoor lighting. 

The Hideout at Kirkwood

43300 CA-88; Kirkwood, CA 95646

Just a few miles south of Lake Tahoe, The Hideout at Kirkwood is simply stunning. The log cabin sits on a pond and is framed by forests and rolling rock cliffsides. There are plenty of open spaces and an intentionally flexible layout that provides many different options for wedding setup. Of all the Lake Tahoe wedding venues, this one particularly excels at customization. Those seeking a slightly more secluded setting will adore The Hideout, which provides a variety of packages. 

Tahoe Edgewood Resort

180 Lake Pkwy; Stateline, NV 89449

On the Nevada side of the lake, Edgewood Tahoe provides a stunning backdrop for a ceremony on the lakeshore with their North Lawn and 17th Green settings. Enjoy a cocktail on the lakefront deck or head into the clubhouse for an elegant reception. While Tahoe Edgewood can accommodate a variety of wedding sizes, they are one of the few Lake Tahoe wedding venues unable to perform elopements.  

Lakeview Lodge at Heavenly 

3860 Saddle Rd; South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150
Capacity: 200 guests

As the name would indicate, this is another one of the Lake Tahoe wedding venues that is situated high in the mountains surrounded by evergreens. A ski resort by trade, Heavenly Mountain provides weddings at its Lakeview Lodge which hosts up to 200 people. You can even make an entrance by riding the resort’s aerial tram to the ceremony site. With an expansive view, weddings are booked during the summer months with availability from June to September.

1 Valhalla Rd; South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

Valhalla describes itself as “rustic elegance.” The century-old lodge is adorned with hardwood floors and French doors, featuring a grand lawn filled with towering pines. Perfect for a romantic wedding with hours of dancing beneath antique lanterns and stringed market lights, Valhalla is my choice for a fairy tale wedding setting. With venue fees all going towards preservation of the historic estate, your choice of this wedding venue in Lake Tahoe will also help give back to Tahoe’s cultural history. 

Tahoe Ridge Resort

400 Ridge Club Dr; Stateline, NV 89449

Across the border in Stateline, the Tahoe Ridge Resort is a great choice for couples seeking an all-inclusive wedding package that will help remove the stress from their magical day. This location specializes in an outdoor ceremony on a terrace that overlooks a natural canyon. Meanwhile reception areas indoors feature floor to ceiling picture windows, offering expansive mountain views. Tahoe Ridge is also a relatively affordable option compared to similar resorts in the area, making it a great choice for more budget conscious couples who want all the adornments of a large wedding venue in Lake Tahoe.

Best Time for a Lake Tahoe Wedding

If you ask me, I would say Spring is the best time overall to have a wedding in Lake Tahoe, ranging from March – mid June. Arguably the busiest (and best) time for a Lake Tahoe wedding is during the summer months June to August, as most attractions are open and weather is perfect. In addition, catching the Fourth of July celebrations might also be something worth considering. For fall foliage, October up until mid-November is best, and there’s nothing like capturing the fall colors in your wedding photos! Of course, if the quiet of winter and snow are more appealing, the winter months of November through January are best for your Lake Tahoe elopement (although the second most busy time of the year in Lake Tahoe). For visitors who simply want to avoid tourist season, September through November is best.

North Lake Tahoe Wedding Venues

Northstar California Resort

5001 Northstar Dr; Truckee, CA 96161
Capacity: 300 guests

A stunning and spacious ski resort, Northstar California boasts its Zephyr Lodge, one of the more iconic Lake Tahoe wedding venues with its unique shape. Only accessible by gondola, this site high in the mountains provides an ideal wedding setting outdoors with scenic views. With the ability to host up to 300, this upscale locale is sure to leave all your guests talking about your nuptials for years. With a classic ski lodge vibe, this location offers perhaps the most expansive views in the region.

Resort at Squaw Valley

 400 Squaw Creek Rd; Olympic Valley, CA 96146
Capacity: 80 – 500 guests

Just northwest of Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley may sound familiar because the Winter Olympics were held here back in 1960. Accomodating anywhere between 80 to 500 guests indoor and outdoors, the property and staff provides comprehensive service from décor to catering and event planning. For couples wanting one the more upscale Lake Tahoe wedding venues experience, this will check every item on your list. 

Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe

111 Country Club Dr; Incline Village, NV 89451
Capacity: 400 guests

A popular resort and one of the more premier Lake Tahoe wedding venues, the Hyatt Regency provides the option to say “I do” among alpine scenery, along the lakefront, amidst a green garden with waterfalls, or in a dapper ballroom. With all-inclusive packages and even spa services, you can easily create the wedding of your dreams. This site is particularly good for larger weddings with the ability to accommodate up to 400 guests. 

Granlibakken Tahoe

725 Granlibakken Rd; Tahoe City, CA 96145

A serene 74-acre wooded property, Granlibakken provides a number of settings for the exchanging of vows while the property hosts a wide range of guestroom options, making it a flexible choice for guests. Packages include two night’ lodging in a seven-bedroom townhouse, a bridal suite, and a large kitchen and living room to host a reception. This wedding venue in Lake Tahoe has settings that allow for weddings any time of year from snowy winters to warm summers. However, perhaps the best option is late Spring with an outdoor reception beneath twinkling stars.
