Northstar California Resort

Lake Tahoe Venue

Walk down the aisle on top of a mountain and say "I do" at the perfect venue, with a breathtaking backdrop and experienced coordinators to help bring your big day to life and make sure every detail is absolutely perfect.


Northstar California is an upscale, destination ski and year-round mountain resort located just minutes from downtown Truckee and the shores of Lake Tahoe. Our breathtaking property and experienced coordinators offer everything that couples, families, and friends need to create an extraordinary and memorable wedding weekend. 

Zephyr Lodge, perched at 8000 ft, is Northstar’s signature wedding ceremony and reception venue. Arriving via gondola and surrounded by Tahoe peaks and summer wildflowers, Zephyr Lodge is an unforgettable location for your guests to experience Lake Tahoe and the High Sierra. The lodge features an expansive deck with unobstructed views, a spectacular wall of windows to take in the scenic vistas, and capacity for up to 300 seated guests in a modern lodge setting.

A range of mountain accommodations are available throughout The Village at Northstar as well as within the adjacent, slopeside The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Family-friendly activities - from skiing, ice skating, dining, shopping, golf, mountain biking, hiking, and more - abound. Northstar is a premier destination for couples and families in search of that quintessential laid-back California style and has been named the #1 mountain resort in the country for summer fun. 

In addition to being a full-service wedding destination for couples and their guests, Northstar also offers transportation and lodging options for weddings at other Tahoe area private wedding venues. For couples interested in marrying in South Lake Tahoe, our sister property Heavenly Lake Tahoe also offers a mid-mountain ceremony/reception venue at the Lakeview Lodge.
