My husband and I were married at Kirkwood this past August and we could not have been happier that this is the place we chose. Kirkwood is tucked away from the hustle bustle of Tahoe in it's own magical setting. We decided to make a weekend event of our wedding considering the destination. Guests arrived on Friday & everyone stayed in the village - we felt like we had the mountain to ourselves (we basically did)! People were able to enjoy hiking, mountain biking, swimming (lakes down the road), etc., all while running into friends and family along the way. They loved it! Our wedding was about 210 people and Kirkwood was able to accommodate us at a few different venues around the property. On Friday, we did the rehearsal dinner followed by the welcome party at Red Cliffs Lodge. On Saturday, we had our ceremony in the meadow, followed by the reception in front of the Wall Bar. They have a nice sized patio that fit all of our tables and the dance floor, surrounded by string lights. It got chilly at night (as Tahoe does), but with the heaters & fire pits, dancing & being able to go in & out of The Wall Bar, people were fine. We ended the night with an after party at The Cornice Bar & Grill. The next morning, we had coffee & bagels in the village which gave us a chance for one last goodbye. The food at Kirkwood exceeded our expectations. Unfortunately we were unable to attend the tasting weekend, so we were nervous... but we made our selections, crossed our fingers, and it was all AMAZING. We had passed & plated apps, and went with the BBQ buffet dinner. People didn't stop raving about the food - it was seriously SO GOOD! Truthfully, I think it was the staff that made our wedding what it was. Shannon Proper was our wedding coordinator from the start. She made us feel like we were the only wedding of the year. She was always available, always followed through, and helped make our weekend as perfect and seamless as possible. Brad Lodge was the next best guy - our banquet captain for the weekend. Brad was with us at each event throughout the weekend and, like Shannon, made sure everything went as smooth as possible. I never even considered the possibility of such great service throughout the weekend - it was such a welcomed surprise! And, of course, the natural beauty and laid back feel of Kirkwood are hard to beat. We felt like we were really able to focus on our marriage and the friends and family we were sharing it with - the details needed are so minimal! Our guests could not stop talking about what a magical setting it was. We loved Kirkwood!
Beautiful location for a wedding in TahoeReviewed on 7/28/2015 Victoria H
The meadow ceremony location was gorgeous and made for phenomenal pictures. Guests kept complimenting what wonderful scenery for a wedding. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was quite delicious. Great value for a wedding in the Tahoe area!
