Janie and Francis chose the Lookout Lodge in Snohomish, WA for their big day! Despite being the middle of summer in Washington, all my couples that weekend were in for a wet one. It absolutely poured after their ceremony, but it was nothing that a live band and a tent couldn’t fix!
The Lookout Lodge has all the necessities of a perfect wedding day: suites for both bride and groom, ample reception space for dancing, an outdoor fire pit that’s more 5-star-restaurant than your cousin’s backyard, and a truly stunning ceremony site. We got lucky for Janie and Francis’ ceremony - the rain held off til just after portrait time. Janie’s vows had Francis and the whole crowd laughing, and he surprised her with an upgraded ring at the altar- so fun! For portraits, we waded through the moss and ferns to what seemed like an enchanted forest, just before the storm. Once the rain got going, the party got started under the tent, and Janie and Francis got a few more shots in with a clear umbrella. They capped off the night with sparklers, even though in Washington it doesn’t get dark till about 10:00 at night in the summer, but they glittered all the same!
