We had the BEST experience with Kiana Lodge for our September wedding. We owe it all to Pam (one of the venue's coordinators) for helping everything run smoothly. She was an absolute life saver and I am sure I would have been a wreck that day if it weren't for her! The whole planning process went very smoothly. After Kiana Lodge does an open house (where you get to sample the food and walk around the venue), we were assigned to Pam. We met with her several times of the next 9 months to work out the details of the day. We could tell that she was very experienced when she gave us gentle guidance when making decisions. She was also very easy to get ahold of by email and phone.
For the rehearsal, she whipped us all into shape ;) She knew exactly where everyone should stand and how to go about the processional and recessional. On the big day, Pam had everything taken care so we didn't have to stress out. The groomsmen and the groom got to enjoy a beer or two while getting ready, and the girls got to enjoy the bride's favorite cocktail. When it was time to walk down the aisle, Pam helped send everyone off to keep the flow going. When the music switched for the bride, emotional tears started to take over. She came up to me and reassured me that I got this! Also, she told me to take as long as I needed before my parents and I started the walk. I reallllly appreciated that!
The rest of the evening went off without a hitch. The food was delicious, the drinks were top notch and our guests had a blast. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue looked and what great service they received. We are so happy we decided to have our wedding at Kiana Lodge. It was hands down one of the best moments in our lives. Thank you so much!

From the moment we stepped onto Kiana Lodge's grounds for our first tour, we knew that they were the perfect venue for our wedding. Kiana's grounds provided us everything we needed - a beautiful water view, large atrium to host a reception and gorgeous places to take photos.
We had a long engagement and it gave us plenty of time to pick our perfect date and work closely with Pam Weatherill. Pam is a pro at not only knowing Kiana Lodge, but wedding's in general. She know's exactly how things will flow and that it's OK if the timeline is off a bit. She worked with us on our day-of plans and it made our big day go so smoothly! She was always behind the scenes making sure everyone was where they needed to be. Our wedding day couldn't have gone so amazingly without Pam's help!
I can't recommend Kiana Lodge and their staff enough. Every aspect of the venue is gorgeous. Our big day was so incredible and Kiana Lodge made it that way! If you're searching for venues, you HAVE to make an appointment with Kiana Lodge (and work with Pam!!!) :)

I cannot say enough good things about Kiana Lodge! Pam Weatherill worked with my family during the planning phase and as day of coordinator for the wedding and she is the reason everything went so smoothly. I planned the wedding from across the country and she was so accommodating and responsive on email and phone, scheduling multiple times to talk about details, sending me updates to our event timeline and working with my other vendors to coordinate so everyone's schedules went together. I also appreciated her perspective regarding table arrangements/colors, etc. since I had no idea what I really wanted.
Kiana also had an open house so I could try food/appetizers, see the venue with tables set up and meet different vendors. Although I had already chosen most of my vendors, this open house really helped me get a better feel for what our event would be like, and meet with Pam and other staff again in person.
We were able to add things to our wedding without looking for outside vendors, such as an arch, uplighting, microphone for ceremony. Kiana seemed to have a lot of things we didn't know we needed. Having to only bring in dessert and a band made the whole day much less stressful and required less coordination with multiple vendors/people.
The day of everything went off without a hitch because Pam was coordinating where everyone should be. Her servers even came over to my husband and I to make sure we ate dinner (and I'm glad they did, it was delicious!). The venue is also so beautiful that even though it rained I didn't feel like we missed out at all not having the ceremony outdoors.
Pam and Kiana's skill, coordination, communication and professionalism were very much appreciated and valued. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to other couples.
Kiana Lodge is a stunning venue for weddings! From the gorgeous views to the exceptional service, it is a premier wedding venue! Kiana Lodge is a wedding photographers dream place to shoot because of all the gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces, natural window light, scenic views, and lush grounds. Year-round brides and grooms can expect to have an amazing experience here. Laura is the event planner for Kiana Lodge and a dream to work with. She loves what she does and it shows in every way.
Disco Royale has had the pleasure to have provided music at Kiana Lodge about a dozen times over the past decade, and each time has been a magical experience. The staff there are courteous and professional, yet relaxed and friendly, and the scenic beauty of the venue, situated as it is between a coniferous forest and beautiful Agate Passage, is simply breathtaking. My crew and I always feel fortunate when we get the call to provide music at Kiana. In a word, enchanting.
As an experienced wedding planner, I have recommended this venue to my clients several times. It's perfect for anyone wanting a "Pacific Northwest" style wedding! My clients are always blown away by the beauty of the property, and they love the fact that it's not a public property so we get it "to ourselves" for their time slot on the wedding day. The rates are so reasonable that most of my clients will actually book both time slots and have it all day! I have planned and coordinated more than a dozen weddings at this venue over the past decade and all have been wonderful, beautiful and memorable. I love hearing the guests comment upon arrival about how amazing the venue is. The staff is always friendly and helps me out wherever I need it. They are easy to reach and communicate with in the days leading up to the event for any last minute requests or changes. While the food is not "gourmet" or stuffy, it is always really good and they will work with you on custom options if you need it. Don't miss out on the salmon! The best I've ever had. Kiana's food and beverage pricing is excellent and well below most of the other venues I work with. it's a great value! Nothing beats a sunny afternoon at Kiana with the immaculate grounds, well kept flower planters and flower beds, the gorgeous waterfront and nice large lawn for the ceremony and cocktail hour. And even in rain, the indoor ceremony option is wonderful due to all of the natural light coming in. Also if it rains, there are covered walkways with glass ceilings to use for outdoor photos or just to keep guests dry when moving from building to building. I will continue to sing their praises and refer clients to Kiana Lodge for years to come! Thanks Pam and Laura! You guys always go above and beyond for my clients and I appreciate you!
