As a wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work at many different venues, but Kiana Lodge stands out as one of the most beautiful and unique. Located in Poulsbo, Washington, this stunning venue is surrounded by lush forests and sits on the shores of the Agate Passage, offering breathtaking views of the Puget Sound.
One of the things that sets Kiana Lodge apart is its variety of event spaces. Couples can choose to exchange vows on the Lawn, surrounded by the natural beauty of the surrounding forests and rivers. The Garden Atrium is another popular choice, with its high arching skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a traditional Native canoe and abundant greenery. This space can accommodate up to 350 guests for a lavish reception dinner. For smaller affairs, the Moose and Dining Rooms are perfect, with room for up to 80 guests. And the Main Lodge, with its cozy couches and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, is a perfect spot for the wedding party to get ready.
In addition to the stunning event spaces, Kiana Lodge also offers an experienced team of planners and coordinators who can help couples design a wedding that reflects their personal style. The venue also provides all necessary event rentals, catering, and lighting, as well as setup and cleanup services, so couples can focus on enjoying their special day.
The culinary team at Kiana Lodge is known for their delicious American-style cuisine, ranging from simple hors d’oeuvres to signature salmon buffets. They offer a variety of serving options, from plated dishes to serving stations, and the in-house bar services are fully staffed with professional bartenders and offer both cash bar and open bar options.
As a wedding photographer, I can’t recommend Kiana Lodge enough for couples looking for a truly unique and breathtaking venue for their special day. The natural beauty of the surrounding forests and Puget Sound provide a stunning backdrop for any event, and the experienced team of planners and coordinators ensure that every detail is taken care of. Kiana Lodge is the perfect place to create memories that will last a lifetime.
