    The most magical wedding day.

    I am not even sure where to begin this review. We could not have chosen a better venue for the best day of our lives.

    I will say that we had initially been more interested in a venue next to the lake, but still wanted to keep options open. When I toured the Ritz-Carlton, Amber was very kind and professional, and able to answer any questions we had during our tour. During the tour (which was in a snow storm!), I began to really fall in love with the venue itself. The original venue became money hungry and showed no interest in helping us out. After some heavy decisions with other venues, my (now) husband and I decided on the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and we could not be more happy with our choice.

    We were given Jessica F. (who is now at another property), and she was incredible. She worked with us to ensure our vision was executed exactly how we wanted it.

    Our tasting went smoothly and we were able to work on details such as item placement and locations. The food was fantastic and the entire culinary team works to make sure the tasting is just as special as the wedding day.

    The food for the wedding itself was amazing and our friends and family are still talking about it! We had an open bar, four appetizers, salad, three entree choices, and the most amazing wedding cake! The team even allowed my groom and I the opportunity to taste both of our meal entrees!

    The rehearsal the day before our wedding went incredible and made us so excited for our wedding day.

    Come August 9, 2019, and our wedding was finally here! Aside from road construction leading up to the venue, everything went very smoothly. Our ceremony in the Meadows was simply stunning (where we were greeted with champagne after we recessed from the aisle!). The cocktail hour on the Fireside Terrace was elegant and very popular. And the reception, was the most magical of all. We sat 50 of our closest friend's at a King Table on the Pine's Terrace. The staff executed everything perfectly. All of our candles, our place settings, everything. They were also so attentive and professional, we were blown away. During the evening, the temperature dipped pretty low, and the team at the Ritz provided the heaters to us, free of charge. We were so blown away by the care and attention provided to us, that we are still talking about it.

    Take the time to visit the Ritz-Carlton. Even on a bit of a budget, they were able to provide us the most incredible and elegant Lake Tahoe wedding. We look forward to visiting in the years to come to relive the best day of our lives!

    Quality and service unmatched

    There is a reason you choose the Ritz-Carlton for a hotel stay or event and this was nothing less than perfect. We traveled from Houston for our destination wedding in Lake Tahoe and the staff at the Ritz could not have rehearsed the type of customer service I received. From our wedding planner (Natasha Bugosh), to the event manager and the pastry chef- I cannot say enough kind words about this experience! Natasha saved the day several times, including when our box of flower supplies didn't make it and we were left with only flowers. Natasha stepped up to the plate like the professional she is and made my dreams come true. I'll be looking forward to seeing everyone on our ! year anniversary! Thank you 1000 times

    If you are planning a wedding in Lake Tahoe then it has to be done at the Ritz! This place was so magical and breathtaking! It exceeded all my expectations on a wedding venue. The staff treated us like royalty! They were seriously so catering and went over and beyond making sure we were taken care of. One person who was an absolute dream to work with and was there every step of the way when planning my wedding here was Natasha Bugosh! She is amazing and really made our wedding exceptional! The Ritz were so easy to work with and made my guests want to come back again! Our wedding was perfection and I know it had a lot to do with the Ritz presentation and staff. I can't wait to go back to this beautiful place to celebrate our one year anniversary.
