7 Unique Ideas for a Lakeside Wedding

Lakeside weddings have been a growing trend over the past few years for several reasons, one of which is the sheer beauty a wedding on the shore brings to your joyous day. And lakeside weddings in Tahoe South are over-the-top beautiful. News flash: Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. Not only is it surrounded by the majestic Sierra Mountains and towering, fragrant pine and cedar trees, its crystal clear, blue-green-turquoise water is second to none. So, pick a venue with a private beach (see: Edgewood Tahoe, Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe, Zephyr Cove Resort, The Landing), or a wooden pier, or a grassy lawn and start planning the lakeside wedding of your dreams. Since we host thousands of weddings in Tahoe South, we’ll give you a few of our favorite ideas to incorporate into your own lakeside wedding:

A lakeside wedding with cocktail hour in a boathouse

Kick off your wedding festivities with a swanky cocktail hour in a boathouse on the lake. Work with your wedding coordinator to design a special drink menu and apps to offer guests. Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe has just the setting to pull this off with The Boathouse, situated along Lake Tahoe’s south shore.

Pick a beautiful beach for your lakeside wedding ceremony

What would a lakeside wedding be without a little sand between your toes? The Lake Tahoe shoreline offers a one-of-a-kind mix of sandy beaches, ginormous boulders, and of course, the signature turquoise waters encircled by majestic mountains. Set up rows of traditional chairs for guests or come up with something truly unique that speaks to your relationship or plays on your wedding theme.

Exchange vows on a dock or pier

While the beach is a no-brainer for a lakeside wedding, you could also avoid the sand and set foot on a dock or pier and say your “I Dos.” One of the unique aspects of a lakeside wedding is all the beautiful shoreline choices for your ceremony, so feel free to think outside the beach.

Say “I Do” aboard a giant boat

One of the more novel advantages to having a lakeside wedding is that you could actually get married on a boat. In Tahoe South, Lake Tahoe Cruises will whisk you and your guests off into the sunset aboard one of their sea-worthy vessels. If vintage is your vibe, check out the M.S. Dixie II paddle wheeler. If posh and intimate is your preference, they also have a luxurious yacht called Tahoe Paradise. Both boats are year-round options for a lakeside wedding in Tahoe South.

After your lakeside wedding, go jump in the lake

We’ve seen many wedding couples get wet and wild after the ceremony with a “lover’s leap” into the lake. The choice is yours whether to christen your formal attire or switch to more water-worthy apparel, but it’s a great photo op and can add some excitement and thrill to your day. (And we hear that jumping into Lake Tahoe can be very invigorating!)

Make your grand departure on a stand-up paddleboard

In Tahoe South, we do it up big. Okay, so it doesn’t have to be a SUP; it could be a canoe, kayak, jet-ski, powerboat, or pontoon, but what better way to exit your lakeside wedding than via watercraft? It makes for a fantastic photo, plus it’s super fun!

Take all the sunset photos

Gauging by the millions of people who post sunset pics on Instagram, we know it’s a favorite photo subject. And we can confidently say that Lake Tahoe has some of the most breathtaking sunsets. So, why not time your wedding festivities to align with one-of-a-kind sunset photo ops? (Note: We could honestly post dozens of amazing sunset shots at lakeside weddings, but we’ve narrowed it down to just a few. But we think you’ll get the idea.)

After another fun and exciting summer season in Tahoe South, we find ourselves basking in the warm sun outdoors, feeling refreshed by the cooler, crisper air. And we begin to enjoy a bit of the calm that the fall season brings to Tahoe. The aspen leaves in the Tahoe Basin begin changing colors, adding a striking golden contrast to the blue hue of Lake Tahoe and dark green pines that dot the Sierra Mountains. It’s a majestic backdrop for a beautiful fall wedding in Tahoe. Here are a few of our favorite spots in Tahoe for a fall wedding.

Amazing Venue Options for a Fall Wedding in Tahoe

Edgewood Tahoe

Tahoe South’s newest indoor wedding space is The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe, which offers an impressive 3,000-square-foot ballroom. Or choose between two event rooms inside Edgewood Tahoe‘s iconic clubhouse, lined with floor-to-ceiling windows to bring the outdoors in, as well as stone decks and a fire pit — perfect for keeping cozy and warm on a fall evening in Tahoe. If you’d like an outdoor ceremony for your fall wedding in Tahoe, they’ve got an expansive lakefront Event Lawn and Beach on site, as well.

Lake Tahoe Cruises & Zephyr Cove Resort

A standout option for a fall wedding in Tahoe is saying “I Do” aboard the MS Dixie II paddlewheeler. Lake Tahoe Cruises will take your guests on a relaxing cruise on Lake Tahoe, where you can hold your ceremony and reception, all while surrounded by the breathtaking lake and mountain landscapes. If you have trouble finding your sea legs, plan your wedding on dry land at Zephyr Cove Resort, where you can exchange vows on the beach in beautiful Zephyr Cove or in the rustic restaurant, in front of the fireplace. And you and your guests can stay on site in cozy cabins!

The Ridge Tahoe

A newly renovated space in Tahoe South is the Castle Rock Event Space at The Ridge Tahoe. With 3,700 square feet, it accommodates up to 180 wedding guests and offers loads of natural light and spectacular panoramic views. But just because The Ridge Tahoe is located at 7,500 feet doesn’t mean you can’t bring your fall wedding in Tahoe to lake level. If you’ve got your heart set on an outdoor shoreline ceremony, they’re happy to help you plan that, too.

Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

If you’re looking for a versatile indoor/outdoor space for your fall wedding in Tahoe, check out the Tallac Ballroom at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. It has access to a lovely outdoor patio, and offers an abundance of natural light. Tallac can accommodate up to 80 guests with a dance floor and built-in bar — if you’re planning a larger wedding, look into their airy and spacious Atrium that accommodates up to 200 guests. You can also have an outdoor ceremony on one of their decks or patios, or ask about their customized beach ceremony packages.

Lake Tahoe Destination Weddings are Beautiful Any Time of Year

Tahoe South is nationally recognized for its iconic scenic beauty and year-round outdoor recreation, as well as its appeal as a memorable and affordable place to host destination weddings. USA Today named Lake Tahoe among “eight prime locations for a destination wedding on a budget” (Aug. 2015) and Destination Weddings and Honeymoons listed Lake Tahoe No. 13 for the “Best Wedding Venues in California” (March 2015).
These esteemed designations are probably due to the fact that, in Tahoe South, couples can choose from an array of lakefront, mountain side, boutique, and intimate venues for their destination wedding to accommodate the gamut of budgets. And Lake Tahoe offers wedding guests tons of amenities, accommodations, dining and attractions (that all happen to be a part of a $500 million revitalization in South Lake Tahoe), which make it ideal for destination weddings. While there are many venue options for your wedding day, seven properties in particular said “I do” to major renovations, which alone account for $140 million in improvements. Here’s a run-down of what’s new and what’s coming in Tahoe South:

Brand-New Ballroom at Edgewood Tahoe

Ceremonies at Edgewood Tahoe range from expansive to purely personal and can take place on the lakefront deck, or in the North or South rooms in the existing clubhouse. And scheduled to open in June 2017 is the $100 million Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe with its 3,000-square-foot ballroom. Each space can accommodate 100 to 250 guests and is inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding lake, mountains and golf course. Winter weddings offer couples complimentary house wine, champagne and draft beer.
