    Our chartered sunset dinner cruise was spot-on

    This is the thank-you letter I wrote to Zephyr Cove Resort and Lake Tahoe Cruises after I chartered their special event yacht the evening before my son's wedding:

    I am still basking in the afterglow of our wonderful wedding weekend which began in elegant fashion with our sunset dinner cruise aboard Zephyr Cove Resort’s Tahoe Paradise.

    I had a vision for the evening that was executed to perfection by your talented and enthusiastic crew and staff. The captain’s narration provided an extra benefit for the guests, most of whom had never been to Lake Tahoe before. They were especially attentive to the stories behind Emerald Bay and Vikingsholm as the boat quietly circled the tea house island.

    The funny thing is that in deciding to go with a dinner cruise over a conventional banquet in a fine restaurant my thinking was it would be worth sacrificing a level of cuisine quality for the distinctiveness of a sunset cruise on an azure lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains. But that was far from the case — the dinner was excellent, from the appetizers to both the beef and fish entrees. Everyone raved. I only wish there had been some type of dessert.

    In all, it was an excellent event. A longtime Lake Tahoe resident even said it was the best experience he had enjoyed since arriving at the lake 15 years ago.

    I offer my thanks to you and please extend them to all your staff and crew who made the special event possible.


    Regards,


    John Hoke

    Gorgeous Location and Fabulous Coordinators

    My husband and I could not have asked for a better day! Codie and Lesley were phenomenal to work with throughout the entire process. They were totally receptive to little menu changes we wanted to make before the wedding and had plenty of extra options for just about anything you could think of for a wedding day! And on the day of they helped to make sure that everything was put together and ran smoothly (including corralling one of the more tipsy groomsmen). We will never forget this day!

    Zephyr Cove Resort's reply:

    You just wrote "husband"!! Congratulations on your marriage and thank you so, so much for the great review Katie! We really enjoyed hosting your wedding and had a ton of fun with all of your guests. We have a great team and really appreciate you taking the time to say something. Don't forget to come back and visit! - Lesley

    Beautiful wedding ceremony on the Tahoe Paradise

    We had our wedding ceremony (and a short cruise following the ceremony) on January 19, 2019. The Tahoe Paradise was absolutely beautiful, and the people that we worked with to organize our event were amazing. They were extremely nice, helpful, and very responsive by email (since we had to organize our wedding in Lake Tahoe remotely, from Santa Fe). They made sure they were always available for any questions we had, and I always came away with the feeling that they cared as much as we did about making sure our ceremony was beautiful. During the cruise, after the ceremony, we had a small buffet available and we received so many compliments from our guests on how delicious the food was (and obviously also how beautiful the boat and the scenery in general was). Many people told us it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, which I largely attribute to the wonderful venue, and how smoothly everything ran thanks to the awesome staff! I would do everything again, and would definitely recommend Zephyr Cove Cruises as a place for a beautiful wedding, or any special event. Thank you so much!

    Zephyr Cove Resort's reply:

    Congratulations Amanda & Alex! We are so grateful for your thoughtful review and it means so much to us that you and your guests had a memorable experience! (How perfect was the weather??) We enjoyed cruising with you, working with you, sharing this very special time with you, and truly appreciate your kind words. Hopefully we'll see you again! (...maybe an anniversary trip?) Thank you again!

Get married on the beach, with your reception in a gorgeous tent, or tie the knot on one of the beautifully paddle wheelers. Either way, you'll have wonderful service and an unsurpassed experience of Lake Tahoe. I love playing at Zephyr Cove Resort and Lake Tahoe Cruises!

I highly recommend this amazing vendor. I shoot over 30 weddings every year and I work with some of the best and some of the worst wedding vendors there are. I spend a ton of time networking with vendors I feel are worth my time to refer out because it is as much of my reputation as it is theirs. I have to say this is one of the best. It is about making the bride and groom love their one special day. It takes a team and someone who knows what they are doing. Just say yes!
