With a holiday-themed wedding, guests get to experience a festive ambiance made up of seasonal decor and colors. The holidays are meant for gathering friends and family, and what better way to do that than at your holiday-themed wedding!

Sunset Beach Wedding
Lake Tahoe offers you fantastic views and amazing scenery, so what better way to plan your wedding ceremony than on a beach during sunset? If you time it out perfectly, you could get the wedding pictures of your dreams during golden hour and the smiles of your guests will be glistening from the sunset while you say the words “I do”. A Lake Tahoe sunset beach ceremony is a great option if you’re all about the photo ops. A Lake Tahoe beach wedding will exceed your expectations, give you the wedding pictures of your dreams and influence your guests to have a sunset beach wedding of their own.
If you plan on having your wedding ceremony on the beach at sunset, why worry about bringing the party inside for the reception? Another way to make your Lake Tahoe wedding better is to have the reception also on the beach! If the weather is right and your guests know how to have a good time, you could dance the night away with good music, nice weather, warm sand, and good company which could lead to one of the best nights of your life. All of our wedding venues offer outdoor options, check them all out to find the right lakeside setting for your wedding!
A simple and exciting way to bring instant smiles to you and your guests during the big day is to have your dog included in your wedding ceremony! Simply give one of your good friends the responsibility of caring for your furry friend so you can of course focus on your part of walking down the aisle. Having your dog as a part of your wedding adds a little something special and will certainly warm everyone’s hearts. Both The Landing and Beach Retreat at Lake Tahoe are pet-friendly destinations and could be the perfect wedding venue for your family, friends, and pups!
Last but certainly not least, a great way to make your Lake Tahoe wedding even better is to hire a professional videographer. Many couples decide on only a photographer which is perfectly fine if that’s the route that you choose to pursue, but including a videographer can be an extra special way to relive your best moments. By having live video footage years later when you begin to reminisce, you can easily be brought back to one of the most special days of your life. Not only is this special for you and your significant other, but it can also be very sentimental for family, friends, and possibly your future children. Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority provides you with information on some of the best videographers around the Lake Tahoe area.
