The Smallest Post Office in the United States Here in the Columbia River Gorgephoto

Bridal Veil post office is one of the smallest post offices in the US (only 2 others are smaller) at 100 square feet. Almost 125 years old, it stays open mainly due to its highly sought after postmark which attracts thousands of brides who bring their wedding invitations to Bridal Veil. In the height of wedding season the post office can be filled with thousands of wedding invitations waiting for this special postmark. Here’s a tip though, the post office needs revenue to stay open and merely postmarking an invitation doesn’t produce revenue. So call or stop in and purchase your stamps from them as well to help insure this wonderful little tradition can continue. Who wouldn’t love to get a wedding invitation postmarked from Bridal Veil, OR?

Fall in Lovephoto

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 can’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 & Ira’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. It’s time to fall in love with fall, at Skamania Lodge.
