Within the city of Reno is a thriving arts subculture. Throughout Virginia Street, Reno's downtown hub area, is decorative street art that would make any wedding photo pop. There is also the iconic Reno Arch and the Truckee River Walk, both located downtown. The casinos in Reno can host both the wedding ceremony and the reception, if you're looking for convenience.
45 minutes away from Reno is Lake Tahoe, a picturesque location known for its clear, blue waters and epochal mountain scenery. Beach locations, such as Emerald Bay and Secret Cove, are some of the more popular destinations for both tourists and photographers. There are lakeside restaurants dotted around the shoreline, not to mention famous ski resorts, like Sugar Bowl, that overlook Lake Tahoe.
