The Lodge at Tahoe Donner wedding photo of a bride and groom standing in a stand of wild blooming lupin flowers during their summer ceremony and reception. The Lodge at Tahoe Donner wedding and event center is located just outside of the mountain town of Truckee California. This venue is nestled in a tall pine tree forest surrounded by a well manicured golf course in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevadas near Donner Pass. When you drive up to the venue you’ll be greeted by a mountain lodge, which looks like something you would see in a postcard or story book. Behind the lodge is where all your wedding events will take place for the day. This wedding venue is a one of a kind location in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee area.
The main ceremony location is just behind the lodge and adjacent to the golf course. You’ll exchange vows in front of your guest on a large manicured lawn under a tall pine tree forest. The backdrop to your ceremony will be those huge pine trees and forest. The plus to being surround by the forest is the shade it provides. Your guest and you will be very thankful for all the shade on those hot summer days. This ceremony area is just perfect spot for your mountain wedding. If your looking for a forested ceremony site while venue hunting then this area just might be for you.
All your reception events will take place in the huge outdoor tent next to the ceremony site. Cocktail hours can take place on the lawn next to the tent or back in the grotto area of the lodge. By having your cocktail hour in the grotto area you’ll be able to separate these two events. The grotto area can also host smaller wedding events and receptions that can accommodate up to 65 guest. Most receptions and dinners take place in the massive outdoor event tent. This event tent is big enough to hold all your guest from your wedding day. The nice thing about the tent is that it has ability to have the walls rolled up, which will give you views of the surrounding woods while you enjoy the reception events through out the evening. The tent also has a huge wooden dance floor located inside of it for when the fun begins after all the formalities. The other bonus to having the ability to have the tent walls up or down is on those cold May and October nights.
