    Why get married in Lake Tahoe

    Big Blue

    Lake Tahoe’s crowning gem is the lake itself, which boasts a dazzling blue color due to its impressive depths and incredible purity. As the second deepest lake in the country, this never-freezing treasure is perfect for boating, swimming, scuba diving, or simply lounging on its beaches.

    Stylish in All Seasons

    Lake Tahoe is as equally famous for skiing on its powdery peaks as it is for boating on its cerulean waters or hiking the sweep of its evergreen forests. This makes Lake Tahoe the perfect destination for both mountain lodge winter weddings and summertime lakefront nuptials.

    A Destination for Downhill Fun

    With slopes that attract visitors from across the country, Lake Tahoe boasts dozens of premium ski resorts and lodges. Tucked away in the majestic snow-covered mountains, you’ll find it easy to fall in love with the luxurious resort lifestyle that makes Tahoe so captivating.

    Weather

    With sunny summers and snowy winters, Lake Tahoe’s drastic seasonal fluctuations are due to its proximity to the Sierra Nevada.

    Spring

    Sunny days melt winter snow and temperatures range from the mid 40s to low 60s.

    Summer

    Sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s make for a spectacular season.

    Fall

    Fall temperatures hover in the 60s and 70s.

    Winter

    Snowy & cold, with average temperatures in the 20s to 40s, and an average of 55 inches of snowfall.
