Zephyr Lodge Northstar Wedding Photography
Zephyr Lodge at Northstar California ski resort is nestled on the top of the mountain at 8610 feet. The Northstar is located between North Lake Tahoe and Truckee California in the pine trees above Martis Valley. The Zephyr Lodge is located right on top of one of the ridges of the mountain top and has amazing views of the valley and the rest of the Sierra mountains north of Tahoe and Truckee. It’s an adventure just to get to the mountain top lodge. You’ll have to take two gondola rides up from the base of Northstar Village to the top of the mountain. You’ll be treated with stunning views of the mountain and surrounding area on your way up.
Once you get to the top of the mountain it’s a short walk down the path to the lodge and ceremony site. The ceremony site is located right next to the lodge and is only steps away from the entrance. Your ceremony will take place right on the edge of the ridge which will give you and your guest unobstructed views of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range while you exchange your vows. There is no other ceremony site like this in all of the Tahoe region. Durning certain times of the summer you’ll be treated to a wild flower bloom that takes over the whole hill side behind the ceremony location and next to the lodge. This is truly something so beautiful that you have to see for yourself with your own eyes. Couples that are lucky enough to get married during this time of year will have some extra special wedding photos with the wild flowers in it.
After walking back down the aisle has husband and wife your reception and dinner will take place inside the massive Zephyr Lodge. With huge windows covering most of the lodge you’ll still have those great views while being inside the reception hall. The lodge has giant open floor plan, so that it can accommodate lots of guest and a dance floor. There is also a huge deck out back that has those same amazing views and is where your cocktail hour will take place and mingling can happen after dinner and during dancing. The deck has amazing views of the sunset year around which you and your guest will be treated to on your wedding day. Once the sun has set and the stars come out for the night if you’re not dancing you’ll be treated to a star gazers dream location for the evening.
One of the other benefits of getting marred at Zephyr Lodge is the Northstar Village below. The village has plenty of lodging restaurant options for guest and you to stay and dine at during your wedding celebration. It’s always nice to find a venue that has it all, so you really never have to leave the location or worry about driving on your big day for here to there. Zephyr Lodge is definitely one of the most unique and sought after wedding venues in the Lake Tahoe area and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
