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.

I will never be able to say enough good things about Elkins Resort, or do it justice for how amazing it was! The venue itself is perfection, nestled right on Priest Lake it is absolutely breathtaking. The staff is AMAZING!!! Jennifer and Dani help you plan out every detail for your special day and take the time to make sure it is perfect. Everyone that works there is absolutely wonderful, making your stay perfect! There are on site cabins for guests to rent, so it is such a fun weekend getaway with all of your friends and family staying on site- it makes it such a fun experience to have a whole weekend of celebration instead of just one day. The lodge is so cute and cozy, it is the perfect place for a wedding. We got married end of October so it was chilly outside, we had the fireplace going for the reception and it looked beautiful with all the lights and candles inside. We are still getting compliments about how beautiful it was and how fun the venue was. And, it makes the perfect place to celebrate your upcoming anniversaries! We cannot wait to go back.

I had the best wedding day! We planned our wedding quickly! I trusted this venue because I know how many weddings they do and it was no different with ours. The staff was amazing. The food, unforgettable and the view, breathless! We stayed an extra week after our wedding which made it the perfect wedding and honeymoon!
