Here is another Lake Tahoe mountain wedding from 2019! During the summer, most of the local ski resorts become wedding venues. The views are amazing and the ski lodges can usually accommodate large groups, both indoors and out. In this case, Sugar Bowl offers numerous event sites around the resort. At this Sugar Bowl wedding, Lauren and Steven married on the lawn next to the main lodge. After the ceremony we stopped by a meadow of wildflowers, and then swung by Donner Pass for some photos. Both locations are a very short drive from the lodge, and well worth the time and effort.
In addition to family that resides in Truckee full-time, Lake Tahoe played a special role in the early stages of Lauren and Steven’s relationship. So, a Sugar Bowl wedding was a fitting venue for their big day. I have photographed numerous Sugar Bowl weddings over the years. Every time, I realize what a great Lake Tahoe wedding venue it is. Set against a grove of pine trees, the shaded lawn next to the lodge catches beautiful backlighting during the summer. The large deck area means you can celebrate with your guests outdoors all day long.
I loved capturing Lauren and Steven’s expressions during their outdoor ceremony. Especially during their vows and ring exchange. The images from a nearby meadow of wildflowers as well as Donner Pass are some of my favorites. The scenery at the lodge includes mountain peaks and the top of the Sierra Crest. But these other spots add variety to their wedding photos, and show the incredible natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
