For many brides, the FitzHaven Estate is one of Lake Tahoe’s wedding venue gems. The FitzHaven is a top Lake Tahoe wedding venue, and for good reason. Few wedding sites have a complete 180 degree view of North America’s largest alpine lake. The estate sits on more than 37 acres of Sierra Nevada forest. Not to mention a 5,000 square foot deck. FitzHaven weddings can accommodate intimate gatherings of 30 wedding guests in addition to large events with up to 300 wedding guests.
Considering that the FitzHaven-Lake is often used as a film location, it goes without saying that the wedding photography potential is extraordinary. The grandeur of the Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada backdrop become part of every nearly every image. Quite often, people refer to Lake Tahoe one of the top wedding destinations in the world.
This reputation is evident within moments of taking in the views at the FitzHaven. A local Tahoe photographer will be a good ally when it comes to your wedding photography at this venue. Surprisingly, the crest of the Sierra Nevada mountains affect the afternoon sunlight more than most people realize. Most important is an awareness of mountain light.
