You were searching for wedding venues in Lake Tahoe and then found yourself here. Lucky you 😉.

Tahoe is beautiful, plus you have the lake. Unfortunately, that’s why everyone and their sister flock to the region—in every way and every day. There are always lines of cars. Try driving up the 80 on a Friday. Hope you brought snacks 🫠.

It’s become a tourist mecca. It can’t be called untouched nature anymore since every leaf…every speck of sand has tourists’ paws all over it lol.

Perhaps if you could find a venue 100% private venue in Tahoe, with acreage that pushes back the throngs, it would be lovely for a wedding. IF.

Instead of that hot mess, how about a better option?

We had our wedding at Black Oak and it was hands down amazing! The barn is maintained very well, it’s very modern and the staff was very pleasant to work with! Not only is the barn amazing, but the property itself is surrounded by huge oaks and beautiful views of the mountains! Would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for any sort of event!
