Weddings at Skamania Lodge, just outside of Portland, Oregon, are always very special. With spectacular views and fabulous wedding venues, a Lodge wedding is truly a dream come true.
In one or our recent Lodge weddings, bride Samantha Sitko and her husband Eric Evink were out in the front of the Lodge taking photos when they saw one of their guests walk up with this furry cutie.
Samantha saw the dog and loved it so much that she asked her friend if she could include the dog in their wedding photos. This adorable photo is the result.
Thanks to Samantha and Eric for sharing it!
In the history of Skamania Lodge, we have never given away a prize package this fabulous. And as usual, entering will be very easy. But what is the contest this time? For all you newly engaged but not yet married couples, this one is for you!
We want to hear your stories. It is time for you to sharpen your pencils and put your writer’s caps on because we want to hear about that very special moment in your life when you got engaged. What’s on the line? How about a two-night stay at one of the most romantic resorts in the U.S.? Now that we have your attention, the full details of the contest are below.
I know you were probably expecting a long blog about the Royal Wedding that occurred this morning, but I couldn't bring myself to bring you more coverage of this extravaganza. Besides, it's being called the wedding of the year and we all know that YOUR wedding is the wedding of the year.
So, in other news, if you aren't familiar with Portland Picks, then it's time to get introduced. The gals that run this hilarious weekly email blast about fashing, local happenings and their trials for the week are precious. They make you giggle and get you ready for your weekend to come. This week, Skamania Lodge is showcased. See our moment in the lime light:
As the leaves begin to change color and the tempature drops in the Columbia Gorge as cool crisp autumn winds find their way to the lodge, I thought it might be appropriate to pause and discuss fall weddings and what better way to do that then a new look for the blog. September and October are quickly becoming some of the best months for weddings. You canâ€™t beat the beautiful Columbia River Gorge on sunny (but not scorching) fall day. You can use the seasons as your inspiration and theme for the whole wedding. Bonnie, from Bloomsbury Flower Shop in Stevenson, Wa, put together stunning Fall arrangements for Ann & Iraâ€™s wedding on Saturday. She incorprated orange Lilies with maple leaves and berries into a tall glass vase. She placed a some curly willow admist the greenery and added a touch of a deep red rose and a burnt orange sunflower to bring it to life. The centerpieces warmed up the Chocolate Brown table linens and the whole room just gleemed with Fall beauty. Give your guests pumpkin spiced candles and serve up some spiced apple cider during the cocktail hour. Itâ€™s time to fall in love with fall, at Skamania Lodge.
