For high-end luxury with a laid-back ambiance, nothing beats Northstar California. This elegant yet relaxed resort is actually a full-scale, sophisticated village perched on Tahoe’s north shore. An amazing array of stunning event spaces, an award-winning executive chef, upscale shops, hip restaurants, a theater, skating/ roller rink—even a 5-star Ritz-Carlton complete with indulgent spa—offer everything you could want for the wedding of your dreams. At the heart of the village is the Overlook Pavilion, an ideal spot with romantic tenting for an outdoor wedding that blends convenience with privacy and mountain views. For something a bit loftier, take the gondolas 8,000 feet up to the glass-walled Zephyr Lodge and savor those sweeping vistas and dramatic sunsets of the Sierras.
