“The venue was so breathtaking and the tour with Kurt was so effortless that we decided to book the venue with only 4 months to plan a 120 person wedding! Given WSC provides food, linens, tables, etc. it cut down on many vendors, which is also how it was possible for us to plan in such a short amount of time. West Shore overall has a mom and pop charm that is unlike most wedding venues, you feel like you’re the only folks they’re working with! Kurt, in particular was phenomenal! WSC is not only a beautiful venue, it’s an overall great experience.”

“Venue aside, the TEAM is what every venue should strive to have. We worked with Travis and Natalie. We visited a few places and when we met Travis, it all just felt so right. Travis helped us through everything, he was empathetic to our budget concerns and made us feel important… not only that, he made some fantastic recommendations that made our day SO special. He and Natalie helped us accomplish some of the stranger things, like a champagne tower and they were just so easy, which, when you’re planning a wedding is a breath of fresh air. I absolutely loved working with them.”

“Natalie and Travis of West Shore Cafe are a terrific team to have on your side for your wedding day –especially if you are having a winter wedding in Tahoe. Their team shoveled snow with grace, kindly worked with us on our many changes to the timeline and guest count with road closures and more. I cannot say enough kind things. And, what a beautiful location (snow & all).”

“Travis and Natalie are great!! This venue is not only beautiful, but it brings with it an incredibly supportive staff. The team here was so kind, helpful, and flexible throughout the whole planning process. We received so many compliments on how great the meals were at our wedding. We kept being told that it was too good to be wedding food.”

“Not only did my husband and I have the wedding of our dreams here, but we have come back every year since as it is the most magical place in the world. Summer or winter, we have had the best experience – each time getting better and better. The wedding was perfect, food always delicious (drinks even better), service is always fantastic and the setting is unrivaled. This is our little slice of heaven and I could not recommend it more.”

5 stars | Yelp | Annie X Photographie | 3.9.2018

“As the owner of annie x photographie I have photographed lots of weddings at this beautiful location through the years. Tough to beat with options, beautiful lodge, great food and on the Lake!! Need to say more?”
