It was such a treat to share the beautiful Pacific Northwest with the many out-of-towners visiting from the great state of Texas for Hallie and Matt’s jovial wedding this past August. Not only did the destination wedding offer a nice break from the Texas heat, the couple showed their guests all the best that the Greater Seattle Area has to offer. On the day of the wedding, guests were shuttled on chartered boats across the Puget Sound, enjoying cocktails, live music and panoramic views as they approached Kiana Lodge off the Kitsap Peninsula. Kiana’s grounds offers expansive private gardens and beach front, perfect for an afternoon outdoor ceremony, with reception inside the airy lodge. After many celebratory toasts, joyous dancing and a stunning fireworks show, the night was far from over. Guests and wedding party continued dancing, complete with with late night bites, beverages and DJ aboard their return vessel to downtown Seattle.
