One of the benefits of our job as PNW Wedding Planners is that we get to see and explore so many beautiful places. The Columbia River Gorge happens to be one area where we always find ourselves planning weddings, but there's one venue in particular that we just might find ourselves at the most: Skamania Lodge.

Skamania Lodge was recently featured on ABC's The Bachelorette when the July 17th episode aired. Charity Lawson, The Bachelorette explored the property for a group date and romantic dinners. It's not only the perfect location for a love that's brewing, and also the perfect location for weddings!

Why Skamania Lodge is the Perfect Wedding Venue

Get ready for your wedding in A Treehouse!

The day starts with getting ready, and Skamania has Treehouse rooms you can rent to stay in the night before or the night after.

All your wedding guests in one place

Skamania Lodge is great for wedding weekend events, or for couples who have a lot of friends and family out of town and want them to stay all in one place.

Wedding weekend entertainment!

For all your guests staying onsite, there are endless things to do without even leaving the lodge. There's restaurants, an obstacle and zipline course in the trees (yes, it is as cool as it sounds), a golf and disc golf course, a spa, and MORE.

Multiple ceremony and reception sites to choose from

Skamania has indoor, outdoor and covered sites to host your wedding at. The most iconic might be the Riverside Pavilion with an unobstructed view of the Columbia River Gorge or the Amphitheater with a tall grass walk way. But even the indoor spaces are great, with little courtyards fit for micro weddings or large banquet halls with a cabin-y feel.

Plenty of photo locations for your First Look

With tall grass in the sun, moody corners of the forest, your photos are bound to look amazing. Even though there are often other lodge guest mingling around, there are always places to tuck away for a moment.
