7 Unique Ideas for a Lakeside Wedding

Share this:
PinterestFacebookTwitterEmail

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.

The Boathouse on the Pier is an intimate, one-of-a-kind wedding venue at Beach Retreat & Lodge that overlooks the lake. Alternatively, larger wedding parties can celebrate in the new Lakeview Ballroom, with its view of the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe and large glass doors that open onto an expansive outdoor deck.

Hard Rock Cafe Lake Tahoe

If you’re super worried about the weather or your guests being too chilly in the fall in Tahoe, you could opt for a really fun and offbeat venue only found at Hard Rock Cafe Lake Tahoe. Located inside Harvey’s Resort and Casino, there’s no end to the entertainment available before, during, and after your wedding.

Maybe it’s the blue skies. Or perhaps the crystal-clear turquoise water. Or we bet it’s the 300+ days of sunshine every year. Well, we don’t know exactly, but people are often referring to Tahoe as “paradise.” And we tend to agree. Between the unparalleled natural beauty and all the fun Tahoe South offers, it is a top-notch location for destination weddings, but why stop there? Why not extend the celebration of your union with an equally memorable honeymoon in Tahoe?

No matter what time of year you decide to honeymoon, Tahoe South offers so much — from relaxing on the beach to vigorous hikes up to ah-mazing overlooks, golfing, biking, paddleboarding, and parasailing to skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, or cuddling up next to a blazing fire. But no worries if you’re not really the outdoorsy type. Check out the nightly shows, casinos, shopping, brew pubs, and restaurants galore, or plan a leisurely sightseeing drive around the lake. Tahoe South has got something for just about everyone. And what better way to kick off your marriage than spending some quality time together in paradise?

A Winter or Spring Honeymoon in Tahoe

Between awe-inspiring outdoor activities and endless opportunities to get cozy in a premiere resort, a winter or spring honeymoon in Tahoe South couldn’t be more alluring. Invigorate your active side by hitting the slopes, exploring on snowshoes, or going for a twirl in ice skates, then bring a little fairy tale to your romance with a sleigh ride. In terms of where to stay, you can’t go wrong, but you can go really, really right with a cozy cabin at Zephyr Cove Resort or booking a room at The Ridge Tahoe so you can slip into an outdoor hot tub whenever the mood strikes (which will probably be often).

Heating up Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

For many, it doesn’t get much better than the idea of a honeymoon in the summer or fall, especially in Tahoe South where you’ll be surrounded by the lake, mountains, beaches and waterfalls. Whether your idea of getting active means working up a sweat with hiking, biking or kayaking, getting intensely leisurely with beaching and boating, or getting a little extreme with hot air ballooning, parasailing or a gondola ride, Tahoe South has got what you want. And for anyone looking for romance overload, we’ve got five words for you: sunset horse-drawn carriage ride. And there’s also the romantic sunset dinner cruise by way of historic Mississippi paddle wheeler. The authentic Lake Tahoe Cruises vessel sets sail from Zephyr Cove and meanders into picturesque Emerald Bay.

Decompress During Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

Whether your muscles are aching from a nine-mile hike or your honeymoon is all about living a life of leisure, a spa day or couple’s massage is practically mandatory. Indulge at The Landing’s day spa, or bliss out in your own room with The Ridge Tahoe’s in-room couple’s massage.

It’s Not Too Cold for a Winter Wedding in Tahoe

Winters in Tahoe are not like winters in, say, the Midwest. The sun is out most of the time, the skies are brilliant blue, and most importantly, the average daytime temperature during the winter in Tahoe is in the forties. (And did I mention it’s sunny?) So, if you and your love muffin are the outdoorsy type, it’s definitely not out of the question to have an outdoor winter wedding in Tahoe. Just think about providing some cozy blankets for your warm-weather guests.

You Can Get Married at Your Favorite Tahoe Ski Resort

And speaking of the great outdoors, Tahoe is home to more than 12 ski resorts, which makes it a perfect destination for couples that are winter sport enthusiasts to tie the knot. Why not exchange vows on the slopes among the clouds at 10,000 feet?

Have Yourself a Merry Little Winter Wonderland

Oh, the themes. From ski lodge casual to ice sculpture sophisticated, the ambiance can glow like a fireside or sparkle like a snowman in the sun. And distinctive reception perks, like gourmet hot chocolate and glass icicle favors, are a unique and fun way to play out the winter theme. And who hasn’t dreamed of wearing a cozy fur stole with a crisp white wedding gown?
