    • Read what our couples have to say about their perfect day at Palisades Tahoe.

      Thank you for making our wedding so much fun! We have no complaints, a 10/10 experience all around. We got so many compliments from our guests about the food, drinks and cake. Thank you to the food and beverage team--you did amazing. Mercedes was the best! She knows High Camp so well and her calm and collected demeanor made the whole process much less stressful. We could not have pulled this off without here. Jenna was amazing! She answered all of our (many) questions with patience and knowledge.
      Emma P. (April 2023 Wedding)

      Thank you so much, we had an amazing time the day couldn't have been better!
      Christopher P. (May 2023 Wedding)

      Everyone was very friendly and helpful, we greatly appreciate all the hard work. Emi cared for us as people and was the perfect conference planner. She was communicative, kind, helpful, and compassionate. We absolutely adore her and can’t thank her enough for all her hard work and help. Not only did I love the food, but our guests constantly raved about the quality of food they ate, especially the meat and the hors d’oeuvres.
      Alanna B (May 2023 Wedding)

      We want to sincerely thank you for making our wedding day even better than we dreamed it could be. All of our guests were blown away by the view and the ceremony. We really just had the best experience and the happiest wedding weekend at Palisades - everything was truly perfect. Weeks later, our guests are still raving about the venue and the food! From both of us and our families, thank you so much!!
      Allen & Lindsay (May 2023 Wedding)

      We had an unbelievably great weekend and the entire Palisades team is to thank!
      Hunter C. (June 2023 Wedding)

      Thank you, the event turned out amazing. Please pass along our thanks to everyone involved!
      Eric S. (June 2023 Wedding)

      We had an amazing time at our High Camp wedding and want to extend our thanks to the entire Palisades team!
      Taylor T. (July 2023 Wedding)

      The wedding was beautiful and everyone who worked at the wedding was so helpful to us and the food was great!
      Cheryl B. (September 2023 Wedding)

      We wanted to take a minute to reach out and THANK you and your team for making our wedding so special! …High Camp was a dream. We are still getting compliments on all the food, views and overall atmosphere that Palisades provided. Destination weddings can be stressful and we were so elated with how the weekend went. Can’t wait to come back and visit.
      Kaley & Conner M. (September 2023 Wedding)

      Thank you so very much! We really appreciate everyone at Palisades for being so amazing every step of the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
      Hailee S. (October 2023 Wedding)

      Planning a multi-day Indian wedding is challenging, but planning a destination Indian wedding in Tahoe came with an incredible number of benefits and challenges. Somehow, the wedding and event coordination team at Palisades managed to take on 200 out-of-town guests and 3 days of events and turn it into the best weekend of our lives! From the attentive guest experience for our friends and family staying on-site to curating a brand new Indian fusion menu for our mountaintop Sangeet, Mercedes and her team went above and beyond to make everything perfect. Our guests are still talking about how incredible our locations were (Sangeet at High Camp, Ceremony in front of Olympic Valley Lodge and Reception inside the lodge) and I still can't believe how lucky we were to find our dream venue. Every single person we worked with went out of their way to work with us and our families and did it with the most positive, professional and proactive mentality that made us feel so comfortable and excited. Choose Palisades and I guarantee you'll have the best possible guest experience and scenery for your big day!
      Sarah N. (September 2022 Wedding)

      Where to begin!! We got married here on 7/23/22 and had the absolute BEST experience. My mom and I looked at six venues in early summer 2021 before booking Palisades Tahoe High Camp (previously Sq**w valley). From the initial tour, Jenna did an amazing job of answering all my questions and setting appropriate expectations for the wedding day with backup plans should the weather not cooperate for High Camp. Eventually we transitioned over to Mercedes as our venue coordinator and we couldn’t be more thrilled about our experience working with her. She made everything as seamless as possible and was willing to accommodate some unique touches we requested (hanging our Michigan flag at high camp, serving our favorite coffee, etc.). Everyone raved about the food (we chose the buffet for timeline purposes and it turned out beautifully) and we couldn’t be happier with the service provided across the board—from the tram operators to the servers and bartenders. They were super accommodating for allergies as well (I’m gluten free and my sister is dairy free). We also booked our rehearsal dinner and welcome party at Base Camp and had a great experience. It was the perfect space for hosting that type of event! Overall, we had our dream wedding and that wouldn’t have been possible without this venue!!
      Lindsay F. (August 2022)

      We had the most amazing wedding and team though Palisades at the Olympic Village Event Center. The night before we had our rehearsal at the venue and rehearsal dinner at the BarOne Patio. We were one of the many Covid couples who had to postpone, and Palisades worked with us through the entire process to make everything great. Even though they had some turnover on their team over the past 2 years, they were always very responsive and kept us up to date with any of their team changes. Though there were other weddings or events on other days of the weekend, the team was so amazing and made us feel like we were the only ones. The bar pricing was very reasonable for the quality, the food was amazing (we’ve heard from many attendees that it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had), and their service staff and team were so friendly and helpful. Special shout-out to Mercedes and Caitlin for giving us such an amazing day we’ll never forget.
      Emily R. (July 2022)

      Our wedding and reception at high camp were perfect! Shannon, our coordinator, was so hard working and amazing. She went above and beyond and helped put our minds at ease. The bartenders and waitstaff were incredible, service was amazing. My sister-in-law stepped away from cocktail hour to breastfeed her son and one of them saw her and brought her a tray of the appetizers! The views of course are gorgeous and our guests loved the tram ride and scenery! Would absolutely recommend!
      Katie O. (June 2022)

      We had an amazing wedding, many thanks to the PT team!
      Lexi Harvey, Summer 2021 Wedding

      Thank you! It was an amazing day and I give so much props to the Squaw team for making our day perfect and stress-free. Shout out to Shannon.
      Christina Tin, Summer 2021 Wedding

      Our wedding and reception at high camp were perfect! We had our coordinator switched up on us 2 months before the wedding but it all went smoothly. Shannon, our coordinator, was so hard working and amazing. She went above and beyond and helped put our minds at ease. The bartenders and waitstaff were incredible, service was amazing. My sister-in-law stepped away from cocktail hour to breastfeed her son and one of them saw her and brought her a tray of the appetizers! The views of course are gorgeous and our guests loved the tram ride and scenery! Would absolutely recommend!
      Katie, Summer 2021 Wedding

      We really had the most fantastic, amazing wedding ever!! Squaw (I guess Palisades now) was the perfect venue for us and we already can’t wait to come back on some future anniversary! And thanks again so much for being so great and helping us have the Best. Wedding. Ever!!!
      Hank, September 2021 Wedding

      Jenna and Shannon, Thank you both SO much for your help in making our wedding absolutely fantastic! We've gotten nothing but compliments on how well run the entire event was and we really appreciate everything!
      Kim, September 2021 Wedding

      We had an absolutely amazing time and the Palisades team took fantastic care of us through all the wildness of the last 2 years. So many memories and we now have an amazing place to come visit to remember our big day. Thanks again for everything! It's been an amazing memory that we will never forget.
      Daren, September 2021 Wedding

      We were just married 10/1/21 at Olympic Valley Lodge and it was everything we envisioned! The venue itself is so stunning you really don’t need to do much to create the perfect wedding setting. We worked with Jenna, Caitlin and Tyler who all delivered high quality service! The ceremony lawn and views are insane and OLV is just meant to host a cozy wedding space. The location of the venue to the village is so convenient for lodging and makes it super easy to make a whole weekend out of the wedding with things to do around the area. If you love being in the mountains, I would recommend this venue to you!
      Emily, October 2021 Wedding

      Getting married at Palisades was an absolute dream. The staff, the food, the view, the atmosphere, everything was simply amazing. I can't say thank you enough.
      Courtney, October 2021 Wedding

      Thank you for the coordination of our event. It was just perfect. You and your staff are amazing!!
      Diana, Mother of Groom, Rehearsal Dinner October 2021
