When it's time to choose a beautiful backdrop for the first photo of the bride and groom, prime locations around Kiana Lodge abound and, naturally, given our popularity as a Seattle wedding location, most of the settings reflect the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

One of our favorite scenic spots is the large piece of weathered driftwood on the beach. The lodge's rustic beams and tangled vines create another picturesque setting for treasured wedding photos.

From early spring to late fall, Kiana Lodge's manicured gardens are a sea of eye-popping color. Roses, begonias, lilies and other colorful blooms line our 1,000-foot private no bank waterfront, forming a natural aisle of subtle shades.

No setting however, here or elsewhere, will be able to compare to the radiance of your wedding day smile.
