Dreaming of a wedding on the beach? There’s nothing more romantic than a beautiful ceremony on the sand. But don’t think all beach weddings need to be held on a tropical island. Some of the most stunning beach weddings take place in South Lake Tahoe, with a beautiful backdrop of snow-capped mountains and the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe. Here are a few of our favorite venues for a wedding on the beach.
From the beautiful grounds of the golf course to the stunning lakefront location, you can’t beat a wedding at Edgewood Tahoe. Exchange your vows on the lakefront deck, surrounded by the mountains and the beauty of Lake Tahoe, then head down to the beach for gorgeous wedding photos. Some of the most beautiful sunsets in South Lake Tahoe can be seen from the beach at Edgewood, and would be a romantic setting for your wedding pictures.
If you love the water, you’ll love Zephyr Cove as a wedding venue! During the summer months, Zephyr Cove is the destination in South Lake Tahoe for all things water — from renting personal watercraft to an excursion around Lake Tahoe in a paddle wheel boat. Why not host your wedding on the beach where all the fun happens? Zephyr Cove is one of the most photographed beaches in Lake Tahoe, and the perfect venue for exchanging your vows. You can also stay at Zephyr Cove Resort in charming cabins right along the shore and turn your wedding into a weekend affair for your guests.
The Landing Resort & Spa
Love the idea of a beach wedding, but want a more elegant reception venue? Look no further — The Landing Resort & Spa in South Lake Tahoe has the best of both worlds for your special event. With a location right on the lake, you can exchange your vows on the Grand Rooftop Terrace with the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe as your backdrop. Then take your party indoors to the Lakeside Ballroom, for an elegant event — from a cocktail party to a sit down dinner. The Grand Rooftop Terrace is also a great place to host your reception, with the stunning views of the beach and lake just off the deck. Your guests can stay at The Landing Resort & Spa, turning your destination wedding into a wedding weekend!
Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe
You haven’t experienced the true beauty of Lake Tahoe until you’ve seen it from the shores just a few steps outside the Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe. Picture an intimate wedding ceremony on the pier, exchanging vows with only your closest family and friends as witnesses. Or a larger affair on the soft sands of the Beach Retreat & Lodge beach, where you can exchange vows and take in the beauty of the surrounding lake. Stretch your wedding fun out and invite your guests to stay for the weekend, to enjoy some of South Lake Tahoe’s finest accommodations. Sunsets on the beach at the Beach Retreat & Lodge are stunning, and a romantic backdrop for your wedding photos.
Most of our other partners, although not located on the water, offer a beach ceremony package that allows for a beach wedding, then reception at the property. Some offer lodging as well.
