Couples longing to celebrate their love at the highest level will hear their hearts pitter patter as they ascend to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. The luxury property, located mid-mountain in the Northstar California Ski Resort, offers a celestial setting for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts painted in real-time high definition color and beauty. The resort is a 45-minute drive from the Reno, Nevada airport where direct flights are available from major U.S. cities including New York (6.5 hours) and Los Angeles (1.5 hours).

While the property boasts two beautiful ballrooms with private foyers, and outdoor spaces with sweeping views of Martis Valley and the surrounding Sierra Nevadas, it is the three outdoor ceremony locations that illuminate the resort’s unique location. “It’s an honor creating memorable events in one of the most beautiful year-round destinations in the world,” says Catering Sales Manager, Amber Kijanka. “In the winter, the resort offers a stunning winter wonderland destination where couples can exchange vows high above the treetops, in the midst of the most magnificent snow-capped mountains in the country. Based on the size of the wedding, couples will soon have the opportunity to host private cocktail events at the resort’s new Lake Club, which offers an exquisite backdrop.”

Within a 15-minute drive of Lake Tahoe and the historic town of Truckee, the year-round destination resort includes 170 guest rooms and suites with in-room fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can enjoy an abundance of outdoor activities in Lake Tahoe or Northstar California. However, they will be perfectly content to stay on property and get pampered in the 17,000 square-foot, slope-side spa or enjoy elevated cuisine in one of the multiple dining options. Perfecting the fine art of creating a sumptuous s’more is the resort’s signature activity. “Marshmology” embodies the essence of celebrating love at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe…delicious and full of joy!
