Lake Tahoe Elopement


Lake Tahoe is located between Nevada and California, so depending on which side you're going to elope you'll need to obtain a marriage license. Don’t worry – I can definitely help you navigate this part. 

To get married in California, you can get marriage license at any County Clerk’s Office in California. You'll need to bring your ID and pay around 100$. Marriage licenses in California are valid for 90 days, and you don’t need to get married in the county you receive your marriage license. You can even get married the same day you pick up your marriage license!

To get married on Nevada side, you also have to get a marriage license and you’ll want to ensure your officiant is certified in Nevada. . If you’re traveling from out of town, you can obtain a license at Washoe or Carson City, Nevada on your way to Tahoe. Since part of Lake Tahoe is a state park different permit rules apply for permits than they would on public lands, and unfortunately they can be a bit harder to obtain, depending where you're thinking of eloping. I can definitely help getting those or helping you find locations that don't require any permits. 

Where to Elope in Lake Tahoe


There are two sides to Lake Tahoe: North Tahoe and South Tahoe, both beautiful.

North Lake Tahoe: Is more mountainous with beautiful pine trees and views, usually less crowded, more relaxed wit lots of outdoor activity opportunities. Perfect if you’re looking for an intimate elopement with no one around as you take in the beauty of the mountains and lake. 

South Lake Tahoe: Is much more crowded, but more things to do if after the elopement (closer to restaurants, water sports, casinos). Emerald Bay is one of the most beautiful spots with amazing views of the lak
