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.
