Planning your destination wedding in beautiful South Lake Tahoe? With the beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains surrounding the incredible blue waters of Lake Tahoe, you couldn’t have picked a better wedding location. With one of the most stunning lakes in the world right here, why not plan your South Lake Tahoe wedding on the water?

Take it to the lake
With so many wedding venues available in the South Lake Tahoe area, you may not have considered the lake itself as the site for your vows. The crystal-clear beauty of Lake Tahoe provides a stunning backdrop for both your wedding ceremony and reception. Your guests will love the unique perspective of the entire Lake Tahoe area that you can only get from cruising. Lake Tahoe Cruises has a variety of options  for couples who want to celebrate their wedding on the water. Their staff handles all the details for the ship, the food and beverages, and are also happy to help you with cakes, entertainment and more. A favorite memento of many Lake Tahoe wedding couples is the custom-made ring buoy, with room for guests to sign their best wishes!

Old-time tradition
Why not charter an old-fashioned paddle wheeler for your wedding ceremony? The original paddle wheeler M.S. Dixie arrived in Lake Tahoe in 1949, and was replaced by the state-of-the-art M.S. Dixie II in 1993. Certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to hold up to 570 passengers, your wedding on the M.S. Dixie II will be an event to remember. You can download a wedding planner to help you with all the details you need to personalize your Lake Tahoe Cruises wedding and make it your special day. From the food to the flowers, your celebration will be perfect from the moment you leave the dock.

The Tahoe Queen has been a fixture on Lake Tahoe since 1983, when it was built on the Mississippi River, then reassembled in Lake Tahoe. Certified to carry up to 500 passengers, this vessel is perfect for any size wedding. Major renovations to the Tahoe Queen were recently completed, bringing a bit of the old-time charm and class of the early 1900s, when ships of this magnitude carried the wealthy and elite. The Lake Tahoe Cruises staff will work with you to ensure that your wedding aboard the Tahoe Queen will be perfect down to the last detail. Sit back and let the staff serve you and your wedding guests, so you can enjoy every moment of your special day.

Modern class
Looking for a more modern twist on a Lake Tahoe wedding cruise? The Tahoe Paradise is an elegant eighty-two foot luxury yacht, with two stories that can accommodate up to 90 guests. Perfect for a more intimate gathering, the Tahoe Paradise has a sleek, modern look both inside and out. A uniformed captain will perform your ceremony on the water, giving a true nautical feel to your special day. The Lake Tahoe Cruises staff will work with you to help you plan exactly the wedding on the water you have dreamed of.
