Location, Location, Location! Having a wedding in South Lake Tahoe is all about the backdrop of jaw dropping amazing scenery! Here are a few amazing locations to think about.
Regan Beach Park
Regan Beach Park is the perfect location for year-around breathtaking wedding photography. The park is located directly on the shore of Lake Tahoe. This romantic setting is blessed with one of the premiere views of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Regan Beach Park is on the west end of South Lake Tahoe's beautiful El Dorado Beach. This gorgeous grassy park above a sandy beach offers spectacular views of the amazing blue green waters of Lake Tahoe. Regan Park is blessed to be in the midst of old growth Jeffrey Pine Forest. For your wedding the shade of these 100 year old pines makes for pleasant summer days and fantastic photographic opportunities. Regan Park West is leased by the city of South Lake Tahoe. The fee for a two hour wedding time slot is $300.00. Similar venues on the shores of Lake Tahoe can be extremely pricey. Regan Beach Park has a capacity for 80 wedding guests. Parking and handicapped access is excellent. Chairs and arches can be rented at the brides discretion (please see Dining & Local Services)
Enjoy the beauty of a mountaintop wedding overlooking the whole of the lake. Winter or Summer, you may take Heavenly Valley's Gondola up to the observation deck to make your vows... navigate the slopes on skis... or stroll the valley with refreshments during the warm months. The Gondola will take directly back down to the Nevada casinos for an evening of honeymoon fun and entertainment.
The Thunderbird Lodge
Elegant, historic, and inspiring, the Thunderbird Lodge opened it's doors to one of South Lake Tahoe's most magnificent weddings. Arriving by boat and limo the wedding party and guests were granted an opportunity to enjoy one of Tahoe's treasures. A mid afternoon ceremony outside on the lawn overlooking the mountains and the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe, gave just the right feeling for this one of a kind wedding. The couple followed Tahoe wedding tradition by tossing a flower bloom into the blue waters at the end of the ceremony in honor of those who could not be there.
