My wife and I just had our wedding at The Ridge Resort last month, and they were INCREDIBLE! Blair gave us our original tour of the wedding site and facilities, costs, and reviewed what a wedding would look like there. We were both impressed by the thoroughness and sincerity of that first interaction, and felt like that professionalism would carry over throughout the wedding planning process and the big day.
Boy, did that end up being a massive understatement. Shannon was our planner and day-of coordinator - let me tell you that she is a total boss and incredible at what she does. Her responses were always timely and knowledgeable, and she was able to handle whatever questions and ideas we threw at her. Friends and family would keep chatting with us about their own experiences with planning their weddings, talking about how stressful it is, etc, but my wife and I never really felt that - thanks to Shannon and The Ridge crew!
Other important notes: the food and chef (both pastry and head chef) are incredible, our guests kept commenting (and still comment) on the awesome dinner and desserts that they had. Also, the whole reception crew (servers, banquet captain, bartenders) helped us throw the best party we will probably ever throw in our lives - huge shout out!
As we live in San Francisco, another thing that attracted us to The Ridge was they offered packages where they would provide vendors for us including our DJ, photographer, florist and hair & makeup artists. Each vendor that we worked with was fantastic!
To sum up a probably rambling novel, we felt that we could not have chosen a better place to get married and have our reception. From literally that first visit to the wedding day, we knew that we were in great hands with The Ridge Resort and all their staff. Our approximately 90 guests had a total blast, and my wife and I had the best day of our lives. We plan to come back and visit whenever we can!

Shannon and Blair are amazing and made our day perfect!!!
I got married on 1/19/19 (Very Snowy weekend) at the The Ridge Tahoe Resort (Ceremony and reception all indoors) From my initial email to inquire about the Resort to my final closing email after the wedding, everything was fantastic and amazing! Blair gave us our original tour of the wedding site and facilities, costs, and reviewed what a wedding would look like there. My Husband and I were impressed by the thoroughness and sincerity of that first interaction. Blair is super friendly in making sure all the thousands of questions I had were answered. She reassured me that we could make several ideas I had possible. She showed us the 2 bedroom Suite, which is totally amazing. We loved how big the rooms were and that they had kitchens. Blair also helped to show us the two possible locations to have our dress rehearsal. We ended up picking Eagles Nest and it was all amazing. Shannon was our planner and day-of coordinator - let me tell you that she is a total boss and incredible at what she does! She can do her job so flawless you might as well take and nap and relax. Her responses were always timely and knowledgeable, and she was able to handle whatever questions and ideas we threw at her. I never ever ever once felt stressed out or overwhelmed, thanks to Shannon and The Ridge crew! I trusted Shannon with the entire wedding and all her recommendations. She made the dress rehearsal a breeze. She is perfect at what she does and it is really hard to express my thankfulness and gratitude I have for her! Other important notes: The food and chef (both pastry and head chef) are incredible!! All of the food was absolutely amazing!! Dress rehearsal food and dessert, wedding appetizers, main course, dessert bar and cake- I have not a single complaint from anyone that attended. In fact, I got major complaints about the food and how amazing it was!! Also, the whole reception crew (servers, banquet captain, bartenders) helped us throw the best party we will probably ever throw in our lives - huge shout out! I appreciated the simpleness The Ridge made our planning. They offered packages where they would provide vendors for us including our DJ, florist, officiant. Our DJ, Derek, was top notch - He Kept the guests entertained and the party going. Our florist, Tina, with Lavish Floral, delivered us absolutely stunning pieces and decorations. Our officiant Dave was spectacular with his words! We felt that we could not have chosen a better place to get married and have our reception. From literally that first visit to the wedding day, we knew that we were in great hands with The Ridge Resort and all their staff. Our approximately 85 guests had a total blast, and my husband and I had the best day of our lives. We cannot wait to come back and see Shannon!! Thank you thank you thank you Shannon and Blair!!!

Shannon the Coordinator is fabulous to work with and makes the wedding planning process stress free and simple! The Ridge was absolutely gorgeous and was more than we could ever imagine. The white frosted trees and mountains outside the window of the reception/ceremony area made our December wedding even more magical. The all inclusive package with the resort is well worth it and gives the bride and groom time to enjoy the wedding process instead of stressing over little details. Would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of a South Lake Tahoe wedding. We have also gotten so many amazing compliments from guests regarding how gorgeous it was, the DJ they have on the vendor list as well as the amazing food prepared at The Ridge! Loved having our special day here.

The Ridge Tahoe is an amazing venue because of their breath taking views at their ceremony sites. Their staff is also wonderful to work with from the moment you book with them all the way until the final dance of the night. Their food is absolutely delicious and their wait staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have an enjoyable event. We would highly recommend considering them for your wedding venue!!!
I have photographed a ton of weddings at The Ridge and so I might be more qualified than anyone to endorse The Ridge Tahoe. Their team from front to back and all the vendors they use are top-notch. You can trust that they will build the right team of people together to make your big day everything it should be and more. The venue at The Ridge has been upgraded/updated in 2016-2017 and their reception space is absolutely beautiful and a joy to photograph in too. I can't forget to mention that their chef is very quietly one of the best in Tahoe and their meals are always delicious!
The Ridge Tahoe is an ideal place to get married. With great views of the Carson Valley, a private garden area for ceremonies, indoor ceremony option in case of inclement weather and a great reception facility, plus the lodging aspects, the Ridge is your one stop shop for all your wedding needs!
