Kirkwood was an amazing place to have our wedding, and we wouldn't have done it any other way! Tucked away from the rest of Tahoe, we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves (which we basically did!) The natural beauty and laid back feel of Kirkwood are hard to beat (and made for amazing photos). We felt like we were really able to focus on our marriage and the friends and family we were sharing it with - the details needed are so minimal! Our guests could not stop talking about what a magical setting it was.
From the start, our wedding coordinator, Shannon Proper, was amazing. She was easy to get ahold of, always responded in a timely manner, and made our wedding a seamless and perfect event. She made it feel like we were the only wedding of the year! The banquet coordinator for the weekend, Brad Lodge, was equally as great. He made sure the weekend went smooth, and was always present with a smile to help out.
The food at Kirkwood exceeded our expectations. Unfortunately we were unable to attend the tasting weekend, so we were nervous... but we made our selections, crossed our fingers, and it was all AMAZING. We had passed & plated apps, and went with the BBQ buffet dinner. People didn't stop raving about the food - it was seriously SO GOOD!
We had our ceremony in the meadow, followed by the reception in front of The Wall Bar. They have a nice sized patio that fit all of our tables (we had 210 people) and the dance floor, surrounded by string lights. It was beautiful!
And, more importantly, it was within our price point. It can't be beat for a Tahoe are wedding, quality of service & food!

The meadow ceremony location was gorgeous and made for phenomenal pictures. Guests kept complimenting what wonderful scenery for a wedding. The reception venue "Off the Wall" bar and grill really accentuated the intimate and quaint feeling we were looking for. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was quite delicious. I did have an issue in the planning, but the staff worked hard to rectify the situation. Overall, it really fit what my husband and I were looking for, and is a great value for a wedding in the Tahoe area!

Overall I thought that Kirkwood was a great place. Everyone had a great time and the pictures turned out amazing! I'm a little type A when it comes to planning so i don't think I ever gave them an option to not be great! It was great having everyone in the same area and be able to hang out!
