The sapphire waters of Lake Tahoe framed by the rugged mountains of the Sierra Nevada create a breathtaking backdrop for a private mountaintop ceremony or reception at Heavenly Mountain Resort. The awe-inspiring views set the tone for a memorable experience that begins with a scenic ride up the Aerial Tram or Gondola.
Book NowHeavenly offers three private venues customizable for any size group with experienced staff handling each detail so you can enjoy your special day with your closest family and friends. The newest addition, Blue Sky Terrace, is a three-tiered terrace featuring stone and wood that seamlessly blends into the natural surroundings. This secluded area allows guests to soak in the lake views from the Mid-station Observation Deck prior to a short nature walk to the venue. During post-ceremony photos, guests can re-load the Gondola and continue to an elevation of 9,150 feet, where a private mountain-top reception at Tamarack Lodge awaits. Lakeview Lodge is aptly named for the constant view guests will have of Lake Tahoe from the time of arrival until departure. Accessible via the Aerial Tram, Lakeview Lodge provides an ideal venue for both the ceremony and reception at 8,200 feet.
Blue Sky Terrace
Tucked in the serene wooded landscape adjacent to the Mid-Station Observation Deck, the Blue Sky Terrace seamlessly blends into the natural surroundings and is the new addition to venue options at Heavenly. This private, three-tiered natural stone and wood terrace provides an unrestricted view of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Accommodating an intimate group of 30 family and friends up to a larger group of 300 guests, the Blue Sky Terrace is available mid-June through September and includes a variety of different packages. Following an outdoor ceremony at Blue Sky Terrace, photos and a cocktail hour on the Observation Deck, continue up the Gondola for a private reception at Tamarack Lodge, located at 9,150 feet.
Available as a post-ceremony reception or a special event venue, Tamarack Lodge’s floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the mountaintop of Heavenly. Tamarack Lodge is available for mid-June through September events and can accommodate groups of up to 300 either indoors or on the outdoor deck. At an elevation of 9,150 feet, Tamarack Lodge will take guest’s breathe away.
Lake Tahoe serves as a stunning backdrop for both a ceremony and reception at Lakeview Lodge, aptly named for the unfiltered view. A mile-long, scenic ascent via the Aerial Tram brings guests to 8,200 feet and the dual-purpose venue. Following an outdoor ceremony overlooking Lake Tahoe and wedding photos on the patio as the sun sets behind Mt. Tallac, dance the evening away under the stars or inside the two-tiered dining room, which offers a lounge area for non-dancers. Pick from two indoor dining rooms that can accommodate groups from 80-170, or combine those areas and use the entire lodge to accommodate up to 250 guests. With both indoor and outdoor options at one location, Lakeview Lodge is available from June through mid-October.

Domingo and I loved every minute of our wedding! Thanks to you, Libby, and John-we appreciate all your hard work in making our day extra special. Looking back, there isn't a thing we would change. Our guests still talk about how much fun they had and how they loved the view! Even friends and family who didn't go to the wedding are envious just looking at our pictures. Thanks again for everything!

Gabby and I want to thank you for the wonderful ceremony & reception we had last night. The rain worried us, but you guys are pros and everything was perfect; we couldn't be happier! The evening went smoothly and was very hands-off for us, letting us enjoy ourselves and have a fantastic time.

Adriann and Libby were exceptional throughout the planning process. My new husband and I cannot be happier. The guests were floored over the level of service and the spectacular views. We would recommend Heavenly to any of our friends for a wedding venue!
From the time we came to view the site and on through the rehearsal and wedding, we received exceptional service from all of the staff at Heavenly. Everyone from sales/management through the servers and bar staff was friendly, helpful, professional and efficient. They all helped make the wedding and reception a fun, problem-free evening. They truly made us feel as if we were the most important and special guests they had ever hosted at Heavenly.
