Beach Weddings in North Lake Tahoe
The properties listed below offer weddings right on the beach on Lake Tahoe's North Shore. Some offer receptions
at the same location, others don't. Since many of these are public
areas (meaning publicly owned land), strict limitations to the size of
your party and parking exist to ensure access to the beaches even
during the ceremony. The map below shows the area included as "North
Lake Tahoe" solely for the purposes of this guide.
