Northstar Resort was a beautiful setting to our dream wedding. We received individualized attention and support from helpful staff members during each step of our wedding planning process. It was nice to know that even though we had never been to Lake Tahoe that every detail for our wedding was thoughtfully addressed and perfectly executed.

When we saw the overlook area on our very first visit, we knew at that moment that Northstar was where we had to get married... The day was flawless and beautiful and exceeded everything I'd hoped for in our wedding day! Wonderful venue and even more wonderful staff!

Kate from Healdsburg, CA

I can't say enough for everyone we worked with at Northstar. From the very beginning (booking the space), Brett was friendly and so helpful. The onsite wedding coordinator was amazing! Sharon did an excellent job walking me through everything and being there to help make the big day run smoothly get set up without a hitch. The banquet staff and bartender were amazing! They were so willing to help us out and meet our random requests; they even had a last-minute decorating idea that made our tables look great. Many of our family and friends commented on how nice everyone was and how smoothly it went! Thanks!

Whitney from Reno, NV

Northstar Resort was an all-around fantastic venue for a wedding. The staff provided great service when we were deciding on a venue, and continued to do so through the planning process, during the event, and even after the event was over. Our event planner from the resort was wonderful and helped make sure everything went just as we had planned. Plus, the banquet staff was friendly and did a great job during the reception. Everyone there was awesome, and our wedding was better than we could have imagined! Thanks!

Marrying my husband is the best decision I've made. Marrying him at Northstar Resort is the second best.

Northstar Resort was beautiful, unique, attractive for both men and women, and accommodating to our out-of-town guests - ranging from age 7 to grandparents. Our wedding day was so organized and easy that my husband, parents and I were really able to enjoy our entire evening; not to mention the after party that immediately followed the reception, held at one of Northstar's lounges! Overall, I really wanted our wedding day to be memorable not only for my husband and I, but for our guests. It was more than I imagined. We are excited to revisit the beautiful Northstar for our one-year anniversary.
