Regan Beach

A winter wedding at Regan Beach Park in Lake Tahoe

Adjacent to the lake, Regan Beach provides a park-like setting that’s slightly elevated and overlooks the water. Regan Beach has comparable grandeur to that of Emerald Bay. This wedding venue is easily accessible because it is centrally located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe.

The main advantage Regan Beach has in comparison to Emerald Bay is the number of guests that can be accommodated. Whereas Emerald Bay is a public area and is geared more towards small wedding parties, Regan Beach can be reserved for private use and is able to accommodate very large groups. Seating can also be arranged for your guests, and an arch can be erected as a backdrop to your ceremony, adding to the benefits of this venue.

An additional attractive feature of Regan Beach weddings is the nearby shoreline, which provides to the bride and groom the option of having an intimate photography session on the beach in the sand. Available year-round, your ceremony at this wedding site can be quite simple or as formal as you like.
