West Shore Lakefront Lawn – max 200ppl
Directly adjacent to the deck & pier is a private lakefront lawn where we can host your ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or dinner. Surrounded by fluttering aspen trees, the lawn adds beautiful contrast to the striking blue of the lake just beyond.

West Shore Lakefront Deck and Pier – max 50ppl seated, 80ppl reception
One of Lake Tahoe’s only private locations directly on the lakeshore, we can host your ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner entirely outdoors on our enchanting deck and pier. Let the lake be your “something blue” - arrive to your ceremony via boat, or hop aboard immediately following for some time with your new spouse.

West Shore Private Lakefront Dining Room – Partial or Full buyouts available
Tahoe’s elegant charm is resplendent in our dining room, which features floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of Lake Tahoe. In winter, we can host your entire celebration indoors. In summer, choose the dining room just for dinner if you prefer.

Homewood Event Center – 250PPL MAX
An outdoor patio paired with an expansive indoor event space at the Homewood Event Center lets couples give their guests a taste of Tahoe mountain culture. Beautifully lit with market lights once the sun goes down, the Events Center patio offers a classic Tahoe ambiance, bringing guests closer to the surrounding forest. The inside space features charming maritime style with vaulted ceilings, an exquisite mezzanine and even a Chris-Craft wooden boat is on display to complete the theme and create a unique experience.

West Shore Café

5160 West Lake Boulevard, Homewood, CA, United States

It's no secret we've been seriously inspired by Buzzworthy Events SF for some time now. We are a lover of the unexpected, juxtapositions, carefully curated textures and of course, off-the-beaten path gathering spaces. It's the main reason we were drawn to this utterly inspired shoot with chunky knits and midriff tops, gunmetal cafe chairs and rough hewn wood, a reasonably sunny locale shot delightfully in the rain. Mainly, it's the way Ashley Smith of Buzzworthy Events SF & Brittany Waddell of BrittRene Photo took an expected and utterly lovely space and gave it a good-old fashioned gathering twist that has captured our hearts.
