    We hosted our destination wedding at Elkins Resort and couldn't have asked for a better location. Asking all of our guests to travel from Seattle, Spokane, Los Angeles, and Oregon -- we knew we had to ask them to come somewhere special and this was just the place. We started our long weekend off with multiple family dinners in the days leading up to the weekend. and had guests arriving throughout the week. On Friday night we welcomed guests with a beach bonfire on the beach with kegs, wine, S'Mores and hot dogs. It was such a unique and fun time.

    The wedding day itself was perfect. We loved having all of our guests in one place. We opted for a tented outdoor reception in early June and even with some windy and cooler weather it was gorgeous and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff was so flexible with all of our requests and let us truly create an experience unique to us. Food was a big deal, and the culinary team didn't disappoint. Our dinner was DELICIOUS.

    Jennifer was amazing to work with throughout the process and on the wedding day, as well. We can't thank her enough for helping us craft exactly the day we wanted.
