The Perfect Venue For Our Unconventional Wedding
When it came to planning our wedding we really wanted a venue that would allow us to express our creative vision and showcase the beauty of Squaw Valley without breaking the bank. Lucky for us, we found Olympic Valley Stables. At the time we had booked the venue it was almost a blank canvas, but as our wedding day neared the owner added some key components to the property. The addition of the reception tent and dancefloor saved us from having to arrange these items on our own. We had a seated dinner with around 110 people with the dancefloor in the middle. This allowed for plenty of room to have everyone all in one place. The property is large enough to have your ceremony separate from the reception area, there’s parking right on-site, and a barn for late night fun. There are even a couple teepees on-site that you can choose to use for additional hangout areas (or you can leave these out for more open space). This venue truly had everything we could have asked for. The owner is very kind and easy to work with and will help make recommendations for local vendors that are familiar with the property. Olympic Valley Stables was a location we had our eye on long before we were even engaged. When the day to get married at The Stables finally came it was absolutely perfect!Sent on 12/12/2019

A Bride’s Dream
Our experience with the Stables was beyond anything we could’ve ever expected. Mich was extremely accommodating, easy to communicate with, and honest. The price was far below surrounding venues, and the flexibility to decorate how we wanted, bring in our own caterer and bathroom facilities, and setup/tear down was a bride’s dream as far as ease. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful the venue and scenery was. We would recommend the venue in a heartbeat.Sent on 12/03/2018

Perfect venue, perfect day
If you're looking to create the most personal, magical tahoe wedding, this is absolutely the place to do it. Mich is so easy to work with and the venue is so flexible! We had the most magical wedding in the meadow in September and were so happy with the choice. Every detail was 100% us and we were able to get creative mixing and matching vendors. My husband and I are avid skiiers and now every time we ski at Squaw we get to reminisce our most perfect day.Sent on 12/06/2018
