In recent years, more and more couples are opting out of the traditionally formal wedding ceremony for something a little more rustic and relaxed. Of course, this doesn't mean it can't be beautiful.

The storybook serenity of our historic lodge near Seattle, with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, provides a ceremony space warmer and homier than a typical wedding venue, but also surrounds guests with Northwest history and rustic elegance.

The outdoor wedding is also in line with this trend, and Kiana Lodge has you covered there too, from the weathered driftwood that anchors the 1,000-foot private waterfront to the gorgeous gardens and lush green lawns, couples can have a ceremony that feels unique and personal instead of overtly formal or cookie-cutter typical. No matter where on the grounds you choose to have your ceremony, you know it will be unforgettable.
