Intimate Elopement Ceremony in South Lake Tahoe

We started the day at the hotel to get ready, then it was time for the First Look. They wanted a natural mountain and forest setting, so we went to a pine forest trail for their initial photographs. With their close friends and family in tow, Smita surprised Akash with her gorgeous wedding dress and bouquet. Akash held back tears, seeing his beautiful bride-to-be for the first time before the ceremony.


Lakeside Commons and Live at Lakeview

Of the many outdoor wedding locations along Lake Tahoe, the Regan Beach wedding venue is a hidden gem. It’s located very close to Lakeside Commons, which is a popular meeting spot to watch the sunset and see live music during the summer. In the summer, Live at Lakeview music events draw a fun crowd every Thursday night in South Lake Tahoe. Regan Beach is located a few minutes walking from it.   Surrounded by pine trees that provide plenty of shade, it’s the perfect venue for a cool midsummer wedding. You can see a panoramic view of Lake Tahoe, providing a perfect backdrop for the ceremony.
