Sunset is Spectacular

The first time you see a South Lake Tahoe sunset, you know — there isn’t anywhere in the world with such an amazing show of color and beauty at sunset. Sunsets are particularly beautiful at Edgewood Tahoe and Zephyr Cove. Why not take advantage of Mother Nature and time some of your wedding photographs to capture the sunset? Timing will be critical, so if sunset photos are a must-have, talk to your wedding photographer and find out what time to expect the sunset. Romantic photos of the two of you with the sun setting in the background will be a stunning addition to your wedding memories.

Lovely Lake Tahoe

Obviously stunning views of Lake Tahoe make the perfect backdrop for your South Lake Tahoe wedding, but there are so many ways to incorporate the crystal blue waters into your photos. At Zephyr Cove you can have your ceremony right on the sand, with the lake right there. Weddings at Edgewood Tahoe can be either on the sandy shore or on the outdoor patio, which overlooks scenic Lake Tahoe. Hosting your reception at Beach Retreat & Lodge Tahoe on the pier is a great way to bring the beauty of Lake Tahoe into your wedding photographs — in all directions! Or take a twist on the typical and host your ceremony or reception on one of Lake Tahoe Cruises’ vessels and the gorgeous blue waters of Lake Tahoe will surround you and be the perfect backdrop for every photograph of your special day.
