lake tahoe wedding at clair tappaan lodge

A pandemic-induced postponement didn't stop Ryan and Ursi from celebrating their lifetime love among the pines of Northern California. The rustic, historic Clare Tappan Lodge is nestled in the woods on Donnor Summit in the Lake Tahoe area where the Pacific Crest Trail passes right by the back door of the lodge. The sweeping views of Lake Donnor from Clare Tappan Lodge was the perfect spot for Ryan and Ursi to sneak away in the afternoon for a mini adventure, and the clear-top reception tent provided a magical view of the treetops as the sun cast its golden hour light over Donnor Pass.
