This ceremony site has the most amazing and breathtaking postcard views of Lake Tahoe. This ceremony location is one of the main reasons so many newly weds book Gar Woods as their wedding venue. As you walk down the aisle to start your ceremony you’ll be greeted by the smiling faces of your guest and the most stunning view of Tahoe. The beach front ceremony location and can host up to 160 seated guest to watch the two of you exchange wedding vows.

Once your ceremony is over your guest will head back to the restaurant for cocktail hour, while you stay back at the lawn to finish your family formal portraits. After that you’ll have access to the ceremony site and water front for your couple portraits.
