Welcome Back!

We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to Lake Tahoe after the recent Caldor Fire. Thanks to the tireless work of all the front-line heroes and agencies who worked to protect our town and forests, Tahoe South is open and thriving. It’s the perfect time to secure your wedding date!

Have we mentioned in this blog how amazing fall in Tahoe South really is? I’m sure we have (about a million times), but you really can’t say it enough. A fall wedding here means you can still have your daytime ceremony outdoors on the beach, then hold your reception under a billowy white tent with heat lamps. Or even move the party indoors to a ballroom as the sun sets and the temperature cools.

(Pro tip: If you choose to hold part of your celebration outside, make sure your guests are prepared with a light wrap or jacket in case the fall air is chilly.)

Our exclusive Tahoe South wedding venues offer numerous indoor and outdoor options to ensure your fall wedding in Tahoe is just how you’d dreamed it would be. Keep scrolling for info and pics that’ll inspire your fall wedding request for proposals from our partner properties.

Love fall colors? Bring them out in your wedding décor and attendant’s dresses. Think deep gold, rustic orange and rich browns that add to the feeling of fall.

At Tahoe South, you can have a fall wedding on the beach at Zephyr Cove Resort or in the ballroom at Beach Retreat and Lodge at Tahoe. You can say your I do’s on the deck off of the Tallac Room at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel or inside Edgewood Tahoe’s stunning mountain clubhouse. Maybe hold your reception at The Ridge Tahoe, nestled in the spectacular mountains of South Lake Tahoe overlooking the beautiful Carson Valley. Or plan your big day at the 5-star Landing Resort and Spa on the Grand Rooftop Terrace.
