Why You Should Consider a Wedding at Dancing Pines

Tucked away on a peaceful 20-acre property next to the Little Truckee River, Dancing Pines is the perfect spot for couples who love nature. One cool thing about this place is that it’s pet-friendly, so your furry pals can join in the fun on your big day, making it even more special!

The venue’s charm lies in its serene ambiance, surrounded by towering pine trees and the gentle flow of the river. Whether you envision an intimate ceremony by the riverbank or a grand reception under the canopy of trees, Dancing Pines provides a romantic backdrop.

How to Plan a Wedding at Dancing Pines in Lake Tahoe

Choosing a Season at Dancing Pines:

June through August stands out as the prime season for tying the knot in Lake Tahoe. Victor and Megan’s decided to embrace the beauty of August for their celebration. It was a flawless, sunny day that could not have been more perfect. 

Selecting Your Wedding Day Package and Vendor Team:

At Dancing Pines, their pricing is comprehensive, ensuring that there are no surprise charges. This helps simplify your wedding day budgeting. Explore their wedding package menu for more details. Be sure to check out their preferred vendor list as well! 

Choosing a Getting Ready Location in Lake Tahoe:

Since Dancing Pines doesn’t provide accommodations for getting ready, lots of couples decide to book an Airbnb in Truckee, which is only a quick 20-minute drive from the venue.

Another popular option is to stay in the Lake Tahoe area. That way, you can take some portraits by the lake before you head out on the beautiful 50-minute drive to Dancing Pines.

Elevating your Dancing Pines Wedding Day with Florals:

Megan and Victor complimented the scenery of Dancing Pines with lush, cascading centerpieces featuring roses for elegance and charm. Alternatively, for a rustic outdoor gathering, incorporate wildflowers and greenery for a natural, whimsical touch.

For the most stunning portraits, plan to capture just before the sun dips behind the towering pine trees. The afternoon lighting during this time transforms your photos with a vibrant, dynamic energy that cannot be missed.
