Considering a Lake Tahoe Wedding? Here are a couple ideas you might like:
1. The Heavenly Gondola
The Heavenly Gondola is an 8-passenger car at the Heavenly ski Resort which takes you up a vertical 2.4 miles in over 12 minutes. One company will arrange for you to be married at the top of the Gondola, among the pines, or on the Observation Deck with a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe as your backdrop. The price isn't that bad: $599 saturday and sunday (plus $24 each for Gondola tickets for the bride, groom, minister, photographer and each guest); or $499 Monday through Friday (plus Gondola tickets).
2. Heavenly ski Wedding
If you both are skiiers you might like this ceremony, where you ski to a secluded spot overlooking Lake Tahoe. Your ceremony will take place at this secluded spot, then you ski down the mountain as husband and wife. Prices: Saturday and Sunday: $750; Monday through Friday: $650. You will also have to pay for lift tickets for the bride, groom, minister and photographer. Limo service and flower package also extra.
You can call 877-889-6379 for more information.
Kudos to Vail Resorts, Inc., which operates Heavenly Ski Resort, for donating 75,000 to aid those impacted by the recent Angora Fire near South Lake Tahoe. Heavenly Ski Resort was not impacted by the fire.
