Many people automatically think of tropical beach settings when they imagine the perfect destination wedding location. But at i-do Weddings & Events, we encourage our clients to consider the mountains as well. The Pacific Northwest is a place where you can get the best of both the mountains and the water in one place. One of the most beautiful places we have found for destination weddings, honeymoons, and bridal party travel is Lake Crescent in Port Angeles, Washington.
Historic Lake Crescent Lodge on the Olympic Peninsula was built in 1915 and is an ideal base camp for enjoying Olympic National Park while experiencing the charm of a turn-of-the-century resort.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, many of their accommodations offer a warm fireplace and remarkable views.
Guests can watch the sunset on the Olympic Peninsula over Lake Crescent from the expansive sun porch or on the second-floor lodge room while sipping a cocktail or glass of wine. Lake Crescent Lodge received the “Washington Wine First Award for Fine Dining” from the Washington State Wine Commission and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Less than 2 hours from Seattle, the Lodge and surrounding grounds provide an exceptional and spectacular destination for any special event from May through September (weather permitting). Couples can choose the intimate ‘Moments in Time Meadow’ – perfect for ceremonies, or the larger Meadow with an outdoor tent that accommodates up to 80 guests – located adjacent to the Lodge. While there, your wedding guests can enjoy wine and spirit tastings, Guided Lake Tours, hiking trails that lead to waterfalls, as well as kayak, paddleboard, and canoe rentals.
No matter where you decide to marry on this property, your event will be surrounded by ancient fir, hemlock trees, and the sound and scenic waters of Lake Crescent. What more could you ask for?
