A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

Spectacular Resort at Squaw Creek encompasses 195 hillside acres of relaxation, indulgence and breathtaking beauty at the base of Squaw Valley. Just minutes from Lake Tahoe, this all-season resort makes the most of its magnificent surroundings: towering granite peaks and ponderosa pines dusted with snow in the winter, and sunlit meadows and starlit skies during the milder months.

Such a magical setting is perfect for special celebrations, and this award-winning AAA Four Diamond resort, decked out in glass, wood and granite, boasts over 47,000 square feet of distinctive indoor and outdoor event space.

Both ceremonies and receptions are held outside on the resort's multilevel terraces. One is a vast lawn, where you can exchange vows in front of a stunning 250-foot waterfall that cascades into a stream that ripples down to the pool. Another choice spot is the spacious spa deck, which has its own stone fireplace and also overlooks the verdant valley below and forested mountains on the horizon. Or tie the knot right on the golf greens, surrounded by a grove of pine trees and serene alpine panoramas.

After the ceremony, couples can move the party into one of the restaurants or chic ballrooms, each with its own unique character. The Six Peaks Grille, for example, boasts soaring floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the glorious scenery. The expansive Grand Sierra Ballroom hosts up to 500 guests, and comes with a prefunction space that's great for serving champagne and appetizers.

And speaking of food: Dining at the resort is an elegant and varied affair. From rehearsal dinners to bridal party luncheons, the special events manager and executive chef can help you create a menu that delights your guests, while keeping your budget in mind. Resort at Squaw Creek sources food from local farms and artisan purveyors, as well as its own vegetable garden. The executive chef and mixologist infuse food and cocktails with authentic Tahoe flavors and herbs right from their garden. Thanks to their on-site pastry chef, you can customize your choice of dessert, whether it's a gorgeous wedding cake or a gourmet dessert bar with all of the fixings.

Your friends and family will also appreciate the resort's 405 well-appointed accommodations, which feature suites with kitchenettes and fireplaces. And there are plenty more attractions: For starters, how about a world-class spa and fitness center, boutique promenade, and swimming pools with spas that are heated year-round! Other fun on-site activities include a championship golf course, tennis, biking, hiking, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing—plus you have ski-in/ski-out access to the adjacent ski area!

However you envision your destination wedding, you and your guests can bask in the resort's warm hospitality from welcome refreshments all the way through your post-wedding brunch. And you might even be tempted to stay on for a High Sierra honeymoon!
