small wedding planning California

Mountains Lake Tahoe

As a true four-season resort area, a Lake Tahoe micro wedding offers pristine beauty year-round and is becoming one of the most popular places to elope in California and Nevada’s mellow, alpine alternative to a Las Vegas wedding. Whether the dream is a small mountaintop elopement or a micro-wedding or minimony with just a few of your closest family and friends deep in the pine forests of the Sierras, Lake Tahoe is your perfect base camp. While the deep blue lake never gets toasty warm, it helps to keep the temperature pleasant through the summer months and in the winter, the area transforms into a wintery wonderland. With over 240 cloudless days each year, the air in Lake Tahoe is typically crisp and the colors, vibrant. From the full service, internationally acclaimed Village at Squaw Valley to the gold-rush-era feel of Truckee and all the cute log cabin communities in between, the area has something for everyone and is especially well suited to a destination wedding with so many fun things to do regardless of the time of year.
