Plan Your Big Day at Salish Lodge & Spa in Washington’s Snoqualmie Valley
With all due respect to TLC, we say this cozy lodge overlooking Snoqualmie Falls, 30 minutes east of Seattle, is an exception to the "don't go chasing waterfalls" rule. With the Cascade Mountains in the distance and an evergreen treelined gorge, Salish Lodge & Spa makes an awe-inspiring ceremony spot. After you trade vows on the terrace, slip away for photos near the base of the falls. Then, head inside for a night of dinner and dancing, the floor-to-ceiling windows framing jaw-dropping views of Snoqualmie Valley. Falling for this venue?

The Welcome Dinner
Parties of up to 80 can commandeer the second floor of Woodman Lodge, an atmospheric steak house in a 1902 building with a saloon-style bar, tin ceiling, and wallmounted wild game.
Gifts for Your 'Maids
Make an appointment to tour Seattle's Formulary 55 factory and beauty boutique, and stock up on their fragrant sheabutter Sweet Petula soaps.
Let guests know they're the bee's knees by sending them home with little jars of pure, raw Salish Lodge & Spa honey from the hotel’s own apiary.
Check out Vintage Ambiance in Seattle, which loans chandeliers, antique bottles, plush settees, and other touches to complete your theme.
Gift for the Guys
Treat groomsmen to Woodinville Whiskey Co. "Age Your Own" kits -- or to a day at the distillery, 25 miles north of Salish.
