Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!
The Emerald Forest in Redmond, WA is one of the areas most charming venues in the Pacific Northwest if you’re looking to have a forest wedding in Washington state. It’s complete with a treehouse and zip-line, what more could you ask for?! Emerald Forest is perfect for a cozy, intimate wedding or elopement with 35 guests or less. Every little detail and available space is used to provide you with the most unique experience!
To start, you can choose an easy 10 minute walk on take the 700′ zip-line right to the forest! A yurt is available for brides and grooms to get ready. From the yurt, the bride will make her way to one of the two ceremony locations – the stage or the forest. At the stage, guests can view your ceremony from the various lounge pods, swings, Kodoma Zome pods and chairs atop the theater. If using the forest, your options are endless – use the trees for your backdrop or a provided arch. Both options are stunning!
After your ceremony, join your friends and family in the theater for your reception. A buffet table and dessert bar are available. If you love s’mores as much I do, there is also a fire pit! Be sure to relax in the pods or dream nets above the trees before heading off to the treehouse to kick off your honeymoon!
*A one night stay in the treehouse honeymoon suite is included with a full wedding day rental.
