Few Seattle weddings settings can match the history and romance of Kiana Lodge. Built in the 1930s, it was originally called the Edgewater Beach and Country Club, a scenic summer escape for well-heeled Seattle area residents.

Boarding the famed Puget Sound "Mosquito Fleet" passenger steamers, they'd make the short trip to our sandy shores for games, dancing in the rustic lodge and canoe jousting in the saltwater lagoon.

The lodge's history, though, was more than fun and games. During World War II, it served as housing for the 14th Coast Artillery. By the mid-1940s, a private owner – no doubt beguiled by the setting's fragrant gardens and deep-water dock -- purchased the property and renamed it Kiana.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Can you imagine a more beautiful Seattle wedding setting for a romance written in the stars?
