First off you must have a marriage licenses in order to even get married. Here’s where things get a little difficult in the Tahoe area. Lake Tahoe is divided into five counties and you must know what county your ceremony will take place in, in order to find the right courthouse to get your marriage license at. The first county is Placer County which encompasses the half of west shore and all of north Lake Tahoe until you hit the Nevada border line. The second county is El Dorado County which includes all of the California side of South Lake Tahoe and the lower part of the west shore. Then the three counties that make up the Nevada side are Douglas County which includes the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe and most of the east shore. The next is Carson County which makes up the middle part of the east shore and is followed by Washoe County which makes up the rest of the east shore and northern part of the Nevada side. Once you’ve figured what county your ceremony will take place in then you can make a trip to the local courthouse to apply for a marriage licenses. It’s wise to go to the court house days before or even months before your big day to obtain your licenses.
