Marrying my husband is the best decision I've made. Marrying him at Northstar Resort is the second best.
There was no better place to celebrate our love and passion than the place that exudes passion, love of life, and amazing people! Northstar is where it's at.

Sharon Praetzel personally ensured that our wedding was more enjoyable than we ever could have imagined. She acted as a consultant in helping us with decisions, executed on those decisions to our exact expectations, reacted to unexpected changes quickly and really gave us the relaxed, fun mountain wedding we were hoping for. We are sincerely grateful to Sharon for starting our marriage off with such a fantastic wedding and wanted to single her out for highest possible praise.
My wedding at Northstar was absolutley perfect. I am so thankful that we chose this as our venue.

Our entire experience at North Star was nothing short of magical. The first time we visited the venue we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. When we realize our guest count might be a bit large for TC's Pub, Brett came up with a great way to fit everyone in: Split the event between TC's & Copper Lane. It worked perfectly!!! We got a wonderful formal dinner and a fun relax pub atmosphere to party in (we met in an Irish Pub so it was very fitting) Sharon was wonderful to work with during the planning phase. I was the "Do-It-Your-Self" bride which meant I made all the centerpieces, seating chart, programs, etc. Sharon really help guide me when it came to seating arrangements, centerpiece height, time line, linen colors and everything else that goes into executing a wedding. On site she was as God Send!!! She made sure we kept on track all night. The Chef was also wonderful to work with. We really wanted an Italian Family style menu for dinner (our first date was at an Italian restaurant). She didn't blink an eye when we requested a special menu. We're still getting rave reviews about the food. When we realized the temperature would be well below freezing we had to move the ceremony inside to TC's and the staff did an amazing job of flipping the room not only in a timely manner but it was done flawlessly. All the staff was soooo attentive and kind during dinner & reception. I never had to go to the bar for more champagne, we were given new napkins even before we realized they had fallen on the floor and my husband always had a full glass of beer (very important:)).You can tell they all really care about their guests. We were very touched and our guests are still commenting on the great service they received. Some say it's the little things that really count and we can tell the North Star team is committed to making sure every little detail is attended too. Since we had made & transported all the centerpieces and decorations ourselves it also meant we were responsible for taking them away from the venue. The morning after the wedding we faced this ominous task. Sunday morning we woke up beyond exhausted (our after party went till 3am:)). The last thing we wanted to do was deal with hauling away wedding decor. I walked down to TC's Pub on Sunday morning to assess the damage and when I walked in I almost cried tears of joy. All of our centerpieces and decor items where loaded into carts for us and ready to load into our vehicles. I couldn't believe the North Star staff cared that much. It made load out soooo easy. We could not have been more grateful!!!! That little extra thought and detail was the perfect icing on the cake. We can't thank the entire North Star staff enough for the perfect wedding weekend. Our guest all had a blast in the Village enjoying the many amenities and our wedding it self was nothing short of perfect. Many Thanks! Katey & Josh Jerome

Absolutely the most amazing wedding ever...People are still raving about it! From the moment I meet with Brett, to working with Nancie about ever detail down to the pinecone, and planning the tee time with Adele for the grooms golf tournament...it was all perfectly done. The dinner was exceptional, the planning and organizing and flexibility was amazing...Northstar is blessed to have such fine staff!

Mercie Galvin is an asset to Northstar. Her customer service, responsiveness, and knowledge is top notch. Mercie is so fun and easy to work with. I feel as though I gained a friend over the past 6 months of planning. I'm sad the wedding planning process is over, and that I don't have an excuse to work with her again. I really will miss her. My family and guests we're also very impressed with her. So much so, my brother in law and his fiance are getting married in New York in October wished they could fly her out to do their wedding. Martis Valley Grille and Dustin's Grove was an amazing place to have my wedding. I would love to share some of my wedding photos with Northstar to help promote this beautiful spot. If I hadn't been a resident, I wouldn't have known just how beautiful it could be from the photos on the website. Lastly, I really want to emphasize how great Mercie is to work with, and would be happy to talk with anyone about this personally. Thank you to Mercie and Northstar for making my day magical!

I'm really happy I had my wedding at Northstar. The location was amazing, and the food and staff were terrific. The event planner was exceptional. I would definitely recommend Northstar as a location for your wedding.
- Christina from Concord
Northstar resort provided a perfect venue for our wedding weekend! Not only was it a beautiful location, but the staff was incredibly attentive and helpful throughout the process and the Village accommodations allowed our entire family to enjoy a weekend full of activities, which we took full advantage of(spa, dinner, BBQ, roller skating, hikes, bike riding, hot-tub, etc.) Thank you everyone for a memorable weekend!
- Jennette from Reno, NV
Our dream wedding came true at Northstar-At-Tahoe Resort. The wedding package was an amazing value and made the planning process easy and fun. My family and I will truly cherish the memories we have created during our time spent there.
- Jane from Portland, OR
We had a perfect wedding day and our guests loved the venue. Thank you for all the hard work and coordination!
I could not be more blown away with having my wedding at Northstar Resorts Overlook Pavilion. From the sales team to our wedding coordinator, they were there with us every step of the way. Many of our guests had never been to Tahoe before, but all of our guests complimented us on how beautiful and fun the wedding was. It was truly a once in a lifetime occasion and Northstar delivered beyond our expectations!
- Tia from Lincoln, CA
Our wedding was great and a lot of fun! Family and friends enjoyed themselves thoroughly. They said it was the "best wedding they had been too!" Thank you!
- Amy from San Ramon, CA
I can't speak highly enough about the entire Northstar staff -- I know that everyone was instrumental in making our wedding day absolutely exceptional. Brett Sneed was incredibly helpful during the initial planning stages and then once we moved onto the "detail" work, Nancie Schoener, our Northstar coordinator, truly went above and beyond to make our wedding truly special. And the banquet staff at both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception were wonderful, anticipating our needs before we could even think to ask for anything. I can't sing everyones' praises enough! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding experience, and, for that, we are truly grateful!
- Natalia from San Diego, CA
Northstar Resort was a beautiful setting to our dream wedding. We received individualized attention and support from helpful staff members during each step of our wedding planning process. It was nice to know that even though we had never been to Lake Tahoe that every detail for our wedding was thoughtfully addressed and perfectly executed.
- Sarah and Michael from Jacksonville, FL
When we saw the overlook area on our very first visit we knew at that moment that Northstar was where we had to get married... The day was flawless and beautiful and exceeded everything I'd hoped for in our wedding day! Wonderful venue and even more wonderful staff!
- Kate from Healdsburg, CA
I can't say enough for everyone we worked with at Northstar. From the very beginning (booking the space), Brett was friendly and so helpful. The onsite wedding coordinator was amazing! Sharon did an excellent job walking me through everything and being there to help make the big day run smoothly get set up without a hitch. The banquet staff and bartender were amazing! They were so willing to help us out and meet our random requests, they even had a last minute decorating idea that made our tables look great. Many of our family and friends commented on how nice everyone was and how smoothly it went! Thanks!
- Whitney from Reno, NV
Northstar Resort was an all-around fantastic venue for a wedding. The staff provided great service when we were deciding on a venue, and continued to do so through the planning process, during the event, and even after the event was over. Our event planner from the resort was wonderful and helped make sure everything went just as we had planned. Plus, the banquet staff was friendly and did a great job during the reception. Everyone there was awesome, and our wedding was better than we could have imagined! Thanks!

Marrying my husband is the best decision I've made. Marrying him at Northstar Resort is the second best.
Northstar Resort was beautiful, unique, attractive for both men and women, and accommodating to our out of town guests- ranging from age 7 to Grandparents. Our Wedding day was so organized and easy that my husband, parents and I were really able to enjoy our entire evening; not to mention the After Party that immediately followed the Reception, held at one of Northstar's lounges! Overall, I really wanted our Wedding day to be memorable not only for my husband and I, but for our guests. It was more than I imagined. We are exited to revisit the beautiful Northstar for our one year Anniversary.
We had our wedding guest stay at Northstar, held our Rehearsal Dinner at Martis Valley Grill, and used the shuttles for transportation to and from the wedding. We were very happy about everything and blown away by how nice the set up was for our Rehearsal Dinner and how great the food was.
- Shawna from Denver, CO
I can not imagine a more magical place to have a rustic, private mountain wedding than the Big Springs Lodge!
- Heidi from Santa Barbara, CA
I just loved everything you all did for our great and unique day.
- Andi from Folsom, CA
All of our guests thought everything about our wedding was amazing! The food, drinks, and service were outstanding and the location could not be beat!
- Elena from San Francisco, CA
I was amazed at the service that was given to me and my friends/family. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. Even the next day when our group was hanging out at the beerfest, the staff still remembered who we were and talked with us. I am so glad that we had our wedding/rehearsal/after party and lodging with Northstar. Thank you for being an amazing bunch to work with:)
