Jana and Stacy have been so wonderful through all of my needs when planning my special event! They have made it all so easy for me. They even took the time to call and follow up with me and all of my plans. Thanks ladies for all your times energy, and attention to detail!

My wife and I got married a week ago and have nothing but good things to say about Lake Front Wedding & Events. Lindsey was a pleasure to work with and super quick to answer phone calls and emails, even on the weekend! The whole process couldn't have been smoother. Highly recommend if you want great service and backdrop for your wedding!

Stacy, Jana and the rest of the staff at Lake Front Wedding & Events are awesome!

We recently hired them as our coordinators and they came through above and beyond what we had imagined.

The wedding was at the Valhalla Historic Estate (unbelievably beautiful location). Stacy was there before the wedding began and after it ended to help ensure everything was perfect.

I would highly recommend anyone looking for a wonderful wedding coordinator to give them a call.

Thanks again!

My husband and I used Lake Front Wedding and Events to plan our wedding. We are from the San Francisco Bay Area so we literally did all of our planning over the phone. We had come up with a date that we really wanted which was 3 months away. After speaking with Jana and answering her questions she told me she had the perfect place in mind that sounded perfect for us but she would have to check if our date was available (since the venue gets booked up to a year ahead of time). She called me right back and as if it was meant to be our date was open. We got married at Edgewood Country club on the South Terrace at 12pm on July 13, 2013.

I can be picky and a bit of a perfectionist so it was very hard for me to believe everything would truly be as nice as I was hearing. They went above an beyond. The flowers, the cake, the personal care and attention... it was all perfect. They made sure we stayed calm during the planning process and took all of the stress out of our hands. Its been a little over a year since our wedding and our guests still talk about how beautiful and perfect it was. Lake Front Wedding and Events also was able to keep us on budget and never try to "upsale" us. We got everything we wanted and more, all while staying within our budget.

We highly recommend them to any couples who are getting married. Let Lake Front Wedding and Events take the stress out of your wedding day, so that you can enjoy your PERFECT day!

My wedding took place August 2, 2014 at Paradise Park. My coordinator was Stacy and had lots of help from Keely in the office as well. They were so helpful in planning a wedding that I wanted and dreamed of. They were very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. I could not have asked for a better wedding. My friends and family stated that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It was a beautiful day and nothing went wrong (except I ran a little late, my fault). The people who worked our wedding were polite and the service and food were great. I couldn't have picked a better and beautiful venue. It was private and right off of Lake Baron. We had a nice view of all of the big and beautiful trees (one that we got married under) and mountains. I definitely recommend Lake Front Wedding and Events to plan any wedding.

Keely and Stacy (both at Lake Front Wedding & Events) did a wonderful job helping us plan our wedding on August 23 overlooking Emerald Bay! It was a small wedding; just the bride, groom, minister and photographer, but it was perfect. Lake Front Wedding & Events recommended several places, described them well, and then we chose the final location. The minister and photographer that they recommended were excellent and very friendly yet professional. Just an all around great experience and wonderful day. Thank you for all of your help and guidance!

As the Mother of the Bride, I wanted my daughter's wedding to be perfect. Lake Front Wedding & Events did just that! Communicating with Stacy at Lake Front Wedding & Events was stress free. Stacy replied to my e-mails the same day they were sent, and I never felt rushed when we spoke on the phone. Every wedding detail was as we had agreed to. There were no surprises. Lake Front Wedding & Events is incredibly professional. I'd recommend their services to anyone who'd like the perfect company to work with.

Lake Front Wedding & Events did a spectacular job coordinating our wedding on top of Heavenly Mountain at the brand new Heavenly Wedding Platform. Stacy & Keely were a joy to work with. Everyone that attended our wedding just raved about the event and said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. The catering (food, drinks, & service) was excellent! The views were breath taking and a perfect backdrop for our wedding pictures. The vendors they used for the photography (Leslie Timmerman), florist (Thrans), cake (Don Cakes), and the minister (Dave Beronio) were all excellent. David simply did an outstanding job performing our ceremony, Leslie was a talented photographer, the flowers were stunning, and the cake looked/tasted divine! Everything was top notch and exceeded our expectations!! They all helped make our day memorable and perfect!

Lake Front Weddings did a great job handling and simplifying every part of our wedding. Stacy helped us every step of the way and was able to do most business over email. They worked within our budget and gave us options for location, food, photos, music, and flowers. The ceremony at Round Hill Pines beach was just as we hoped, a beautiful Lake Tahoe location. The coordinators and officiant made sure everything went smoothly. The photos were great, especially given such a nice location. Overall it was an excellent experience.

They have the cutest bridal store in Heavenly. I found them by walking through all the stores and I thought all they did was offer wedding consultant services. I was curious so I went in...they have the cutest items in the shop. There were favors, wedding decorations, a few wedding knick knacks, centerpieces, etcetera. They were all so cheap but made pretty good. I couldn't get enough of the items. Although, we were getting married in Sacramento, CA. I was able to buy a few items and received a few good ideas from the store and by speaking to the bridal consultant-Jana. Jana and her staff were friendly and easy to speak to. I recommend this shop to everyone. Too bad I wasn't getting married in Lake Tahoe or I would've hired the gals for my wedding.

We just were married on June 7th. We got married at Valhalla and with the help of Lakefront, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

Their help is definitely worth it.

We worked with Stacy and Lake Front for about a year planning our wedding and Stacy was WONDERFUL!! She never ignored a question or worry and made changes to the same item for me 10 times if that's what needed to happen 🙂

I was worried in the beginning that I wasn't going to be "as part" of things but it couldn't have been better. I was able to be hands on with my purveyors in making decisions and expressing the things we wanted to see happen but Stacy did all the coordination and made sure everything flowed the way it was supposed to. They let us have as many personal touches as we wanted or not wanted. I cannot tell you how great it was to have Stacy there to work with and make sure that ON the day of the wedding, I had nothing to worry about.

If you are getting married, small or big, I would strongly suggest going through them. I didn't have to think much about a lot and we had everything set up and ready to go weeks ahead of time and it was due to Stacy!

Weddings are expensive but I think I would have spent more time and way more money without their help.

We were married here just last weekend and everything was just perfect! Stacy was so great to work with through the whole process. She never was flustered with my thousand questions and was great at coordinating the whole event from start to finish. We received so many compliments on how it all went that we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great wedding location. The terrace is great! Thank you to everyone that helped make this a success (Stacy, Janel, Heidi, Lesly and Leslie). We are looking forward to our pictures!

By far the greatest staff and wedding experience EVER. After giving up on having our big Texas wedding this was our first and only call. I could not be happier with how perfect and flawless everything was! I could not ask for a better time or better people to plan a wedding. They are always willing to help and more than accommodating to your dreams and desires!!

My husband and I ran into Lakefront Wedding and Events when we were in town visiting friends in August 2012, and they highly recommended if it were in our budget to get married at Edgewood! Boy were they right when we saw the venue we knew it was for us! Stacy and the whole team at Lakefront was amazing with always responding to my frantic and crazy emails. If we were to ever get married again with a large wedding we would definitely use them again! Thanks Stacy and team!

My husband and I were married on January 30th at the Meadow Lake House. Stacy helped coordinate our wedding, and was absolutely fantastic! All of my phone calls and emails were returned within less than 24 hours and she always found a way to accommodate our requests.

The wedding itself was absolutely amazing, and I could not imagine anything more perfect than what we experienced thanks to Lake Front Wedding & Events. We had a very small wedding party of 13 that consisted primarily of immediate family and our closest friends. The home within which we were married was very intimate and romantic. The flower arrangements and decor provided for the ceremony were simply beautiful. Every detail had a little bit of my husband and I in it. The food and cake provided were absolutely delicious. A caterer was provided during the event and for our post-ceremony dinner; she was also wonderful, very friendly, and very accommodating. Each and every member of our party thoroughly enjoyed all of the appetizers and the entree provided.

We were married by Jana whom we met through the event coordinators provided, and she literally brought down the house! There are not enough words in the dictionary that can properly define how much she meant to my husband and I; there was not a dry eye in the place. She was one of the kindest and most sincere people I have ever met, and it was definitely an honor to have her present.

The photographer that was provided (Leslie Timmerman) was also fantastic. We received our photographs within two weeks, and I have had many friends who have had to wait well over a month following their big day for photographs... The entire experience was exactly what we had hoped for, and we owe it all to Stacy, and Lake Front Weddings and Events. I would recommend their services to anyone without hesitation.

Has anyone ever told you that something always goes wrong at your wedding no matter what? I believed that until I had my wedding on October 12th 2012 with the help of Stacy at Lakefront Wedding & Events. Taking all the stress out of planning a wedding is difficult to do, and the girls at Lakefront mastered it. Everything from the flowers, food, drinks, layout, lodging and rehearsal to the notary for the marriage license was taken care of. When I forgot the duraflames for the real burning fire in the 20 foot fireplace, Stacy resolved it right away. The girls are easy to get in touch with and respond right away with answers to any questions you might have. Even if you think a question is silly, the staff makes you feel comfortable and they make sure you understand everything you're paying for. They also created a beautiful wedding that fit my budget with no surprises. I highly recommend Lakefront for all your wedding needs.

If you want a stress free, beautiful, romantic wedding this is the place to come. First off, Stacy is so nice and professional without any pressure whatsoever. She really gave us all the information we needed to make our decision on which type of wedding we wanted. After our decision was made (we chose to get married at beautiful Emerald Bay) we left a deposit and corresponded via email with any other questions we had. Our photographer Hillary was great! We definitely feel we got our moneys worth with the time she spent with us. It was a great experience all around.

Lakefront wedding was wonderful in making our wedding day as perfect as possible. Stacy was great throughout the planning and on the wedding day always available and very helpful and patient. Leslie was terrific presiding over the ceremony. The food and bar were great and the setup was on time and seamless. Lakefront has some wonderful partners in Lake Tahoe Catering and cakes by Grace. We received many compliments on the wedding. Thank you Lakefront and Stacy and Leslie!

I cannot thank Lake Front Weddings enough!! We had our wedding in June and it was perfect! We had a great wedding at a lovely location with an amazing reception and stayed within our (modest) budget! The ceremony itself was perfect and went very smoothly, with lots of help from Hillary. I had never planned a wedding before and had no idea what I was doing, but Stacey helped A LOT. They provide you with all the resources you need and I loved that the price included photography! Thank you so much, Lake Front Weddings!!!

I recently got in touch with Lake Front Weddings & Events and they are wonderful. So nice and very helpful. First I spoke with Jana over the phone and she took the time to ask me lots of questions about what I was looking for and my budget. She gave me info and I made an appointment to meet with them.

My appointment was with Stacy who was also very sweet, listened to everything I had to say, asked lots of questions and gave me info. She wrote up two quotes on the spot (one for a simple wedding and one for a more expensive affair). And then she took my mom and I to one of the sites.

We haven't set a date so unfortunately I haven't sealed the deal with them but I will definitely use their services. What you get in services versus what you pay for is a very good value.

Lake Front Weddings & Events is the best choice is you want your planning simplified and not have to make a ton of choices.

My husband and I just got married through Lake Front Weddings 3 weeks ago! It was such a smooth and easy experience.

We live out of town in Sacramento so 90% of planning was done via email or phone. I mostly worked with Stacy; she is great very very helpful and very nice.
I have nothing bad to say about Lake Front, they literally took care of EVERYTHING! Both ceremony and reception venues which were at Reagan Beach and Pichetti Winery, caterer, flowers, Dj, minister, cake, set up and clean up! I could go on and on. Everything was AMAZING. My friends and family had such an great time! Thank you Lake Front for making our wedding experience such a good one! 🙂

We got married in June 18th, 2013 at the Valhalla Grand Hall. We called and booked our wedding with Lake Front Weddings, and they all were amazing. Stacy planned everything out perfect and answered every question I had and gave great advice. She made everything beautiful as I imagined. The vendor's and other people were amazing as well, the Minister, the DJ, the photographer, the caterer and bartender they did everything perfect timing. Thank you so much Stacy and Lake Front Wedding and Events you made my dream wedding come true.

My husband and I were married on 6/2/2013 at the Valhalla Estate. We lived in Sacramento, CA but moved to the Seattle, WA area for work. We choose Lakefront wedding and events to help with the planning to help ease the stress of planning what turned into a 'destination wedding' for us.

Stacy and Hillary took care of everything but the florist and hotel accommodations (at our choice). They did give us a list of suggested hotels, food, hair, makeup, and activities. Being so far away, that was a huge help.

My husband and I had never seen the Valhalla Estate in person, and never met any of the vendors before the day of our wedding. I was really going off of reviews and pictures online. We were not disappointed. Everything was as I had dreamed and more. Everyone was easy to talk to and they were all about making our day special and unique. Even with the REALLY tight time frame.

All the guests were blown away from the reception and ceremony. One guest said they felt like they were not in Tahoe, but in an Ireland cottage. Staff were awesome. I can't wait to see the professional photos, but from the ones we were shown on the camera, I'm sure they will be amazing!

Katherine (Bothell, WA)

My husband and i are from Northern California, we had been searching for a location with a beautiful view, as well and not break our bank accts. We happened to stumble upon Lakefront weddings, browsed through the pictures and fell in love!

Long story short, I called on a Monday and was married by that following Thursday. Talk about last min weddings huh?! Stacy was the one who helped me and she is beyond amazing! we loved every moment of our wedding. Whats even more amazing is our price included a professional photographer Leslie. Just as amazing as Stacy!

We cant begin to say how thankful we are of all the wonderful services!!

Modesto, CA

My Husband and I got married in September 2012 at Edgewood Golf Course and booked our wedding through Lake Front Weddings & Events. We Worked with Lake Front Events for about a year planning our wedding and worked mostly with Stacy, she was AMAZING!!! Everyone we encountered from lake Front was very professional and helpful. The wedding planning process was so smooth, Stacy always emailed me back promptly and was friendly and more than helpful every time. The vendors that Lake Front suggested were wonderful. We used Cakes by Grace for our wedding cake, Edgewood for our venue, Big sound DJ, and Thran's flowers.

We live in the bay area so we did do most planning via phone and email and for it to go as smoothly as it did is saying a lot. The day of our wedding went smoother than we could have ever imagined. We had a 10am wedding on Edgewood's north terrace followed by reception in the North room. The decor was perfect, the venue was perfect, food amazing, flow of the wedding perfect, I mean I really have nothing negative to say at all. We would do it all the same time and time again. I would recommend Lake Front Wedding and Events to my best friend and to you too.! 🙂

Leilani and Chris

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding day it turned out perfectly!! Flowers were just what I wanted the photographer and minister were amazing and we truly had the best day so thank you for all of your help with setting us up with a wonderful day.


Stacy was great! My husband and I got married June 9, 2012 at Lake Barron! I wish the grass was green, but that was my only complaint about the entire thing. Stacy was so good at keeping in contact w me and making everything easy! 🙂


Steve and I were married June 3, 2012 at Valhalla Estate in South Lake Tahoe. It could not have been a better fit for us and our family and we could not have asked for more. I called Stacy on April 6th and by June 3rd we had the perfect wedding with every detail we dreamed of. Stacy was our wedding planner and I am beyond grateful for her attention to our wedding, her experienced input and her general excitement about our wedding. We had the perfect wedding and Stacy and Lakefront Wedding & Events worked their tails off to make our dreams come true. I would hightly recommend them to anyone looking have their wedding in South Lake Tahoe.


I just want to thank you all for providing such a majestic moment in time for my daughter on May 5, 2012. Your attention to details made the event breathtaking and left us all feeling a little pampered as the Edgewood was beautiful. I will be so glad to tell anyone planning their nutuals to call you first. They won't be disappointed!

A Happy Mother of the Bride

Stacy, Leslie & Leslie made our wedding day (& the day before) relaxed and fun. It literally took my breath away when I walked down the path and saw beautiful Emerald Bay. It was perfect. Thank you so much!


It was everything I wanted it to be. I am a frugal woman with expensive finding a place to get married that suit me was difficult. This chapel is absolutely beautiful. When we asked about prices I was impressed! Some of our friends had recently gotten married and paid much more for much less.

Everything went wonderfully. The staff was always friendly and available to answer any questions. We didn't feel rushed or that we weren't their biggest concern. Many other wedding chapels leave you feeling like your just another wedding and you actually are shuffled around and treated like a tool. I was sooo happy with everything. Everyone there was great.

Other brides would tell me it is the last minute stuff that gets you....but at Lakefront everything was running on time and just the way we wanted it. If you want to get married in Lake Tahoe this is the place!

Lakefront and their staff made this day such a memorable one... They were very professional and accommodating from day one. The views are amazing, and it's not some weird cabin looking chapel buried in the middle of no where... It truly is beautiful. They offer really good package deals, along with honeymoon cabins, etc. I will never forget my special day here...

I got married here last week. I loved the crystal room. I felt like a princess. The chairs had crystal backs and the floor and pillars are gray stone. The decor is tasteful classy. I think I found the only non-tacky wedding chapel in Tahoe. All the others have cupids and hearts on the walls.

It was nice to have a selection of rooms. We almost went with the outdoors terrace but im so glad we didnt! There were unexpected Tstorms on the weekend of the wedding. I really liked the Minister. She was wonderful, and made the experience seamless. Everything was included in the package we selected, making it all so easy. The chapel even dealt with the florist and the marriage license.

I highly suggest this chapel if you plan to marry in Tahoe.

I felt like the staff really knew what they were doing, provided a lovely space and that anyone looking to have a small but elegant wedding will be happy to do so here.

Brianna P.My husband and I got married at LakeFront on Oct 3rd, 2009. We had an outdoor ceremony with roughly 50 guest and a full sit down reception upstairs following. The staff was very helpful with all the planning and went above and beyond any of my needs. Everything went absolutely perfect and was everything that I had dreamed. Less then 1 month after our wedding we received our photos and DVD which brought our entire family to tears. I highly recommend LakeFront to anyone looking for a stress free inexpensive wedding set in beautiful Lake Tahoe. Thank you again to all the the staff at LakeFront & a special thanks to Stacy for helping me and crazy mom through my big day. Happily Married for 149 days and counting...
