Tahoe South is one of the most gorgeous settings you can choose for your destination wedding. What better way to take in the beauty of Lake Tahoe than on the beach — or on the water? Zephyr Cove Resort and Lake Tahoe Cruises offer some of the most scenic and fun options for your South Lake Tahoe wedding.
Take it to the water
One of the most incredible ways to experience Lake Tahoe is from out on the lake itself. Hosting your wedding ceremony or reception on a boat is a great way to share the beauty of the surrounding area with your wedding guests. Lake Tahoe Cruises operates the MS Dixie II paddle wheeler and the smaller, more intimate Tahoe Paradise yacht year-round for your destination wedding on the water. There is something so peaceful and romantic about exchanging your wedding vows out on the water. From an intimate gathering with friends to a larger celebration up to 300 guests, the staff at Lake Tahoe Cruises offers lots of options to make your wedding on the water memorable. Have a unique wedding theme dreamed up? Their full-service event staff can help bring that to life, too.
Rustic, cabin-like restaurant perfect for intimate gatherings
Voted “South Shore’s Best” many times over, Zephyr Cove Restaurant is a modern-meets-rustic establishment with rows of windows that frame the beautiful view, making it perfect for any season. The restaurant can accommodate smaller, more intimate wedding receptions for 75 guests or fewer. And if you’re planning a winter wedding, ceremonies can be held inside the cozy restaurant, with its large stone fireplace and cabin-like atmosphere. Offering innovative menus and seasonal cuisine crafted with sustainable and locally sourced food, Zephyr Cove Restaurant is also a prime choice for a rehearsal dinner, a wedding day breakfast or brunch, or day-after gift opening gathering.
Ceremonies on the sand
During the late spring, summer and early fall months, Zephyr Cove Resort offers wedding facilities right on their beach, with lakeside venues for both your ceremony and reception. With breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and the clear, vibrant blue waters of Lake Tahoe right in front of you, it’s no wonder Zephyr Cove Resort made our list of 4 Best Beach Weddings in Tahoe South. Hosting your ceremony and reception outdoors lets you share your love for each other — and your love for the outdoors — with your wedding guests and family.
