An Olympic Peninsula Wedding at Kalaloch
Make one of the most beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest the backdrop for your big day.
Our management team will work with you to make your wedding as special as it can possibly be. We encourage you to use the information below as a guide.* Pricing information is available upon request.
With the stunning setting of Olympic National Park as your stage, your big day will be an awe-inspiring affair that sets the measure for a lifetime of memories.
On the Property
Ceremonies can be hosted at our gazebo or in front of your Bluff Cabins. There is no fee for the gazebo; all you need to do is let us know so we can reserve the space. Keep in mind that the gazebo is next to the beach trail, which will always be open to the public.
On the Beach in Olympic National Park
Want to plan a beach wedding like no other? Contact the National Park Service to get a permit.
We only allow outdoor receptions in front of cabins during the summer months. All events must end by 9:30 p.m. Beach bonfires are allowed and are recommended if you're still interested in celebrating afterwards.
Maximum guest count is 50.
We can provide chairs, tables, and ivory linens. Equipment rental fees will apply based on the number of guests. Pricing is available upon request. Fees are due 14 days prior to the event.
Kalaloch does not own an event tent and cannot provide one. Guests will have to get approval through the National Park Service and take care of the rental fees and contracting on their own. Personal event tents may be used, but need to be down by 10 p.m. If you're renting a tent, please know that we've had tent rental companies come to the property and refuse to set up due to high winds.
We allow decorations; however, there is no confetti or bird seed allowed, and all decorations must be cleaned up by the party before check out time. If any decorations are left up, or found as litter, a sliding cleanup fee will be applied.
Whether your music is live or just being played through speakers it must be kept at a moderate volume and stop by 9:30 p.m. so other guests aren't disturbed.
Outdoor food service requires that you have a minimum of 21 guests and that you rent one of our Bluff Cabins with a carport. The carport will be used as a covered area to set up the buffet and protect it from rain. Outside catering is not allowed on the property.
Buffet Equipment Rental Fee
Includes all tables, ivory linens, biodegradable plates and utensils, compostable cups, a large ice water jug, and a large garbage, recycling, and compost bin for guests to utilize. Pricing available upon request, fees due 14 days prior to event.
Price Per Head
Varies depending on the menu options you select from Kalaloch's food and beverage team. Price provided will not include tax or tip and will be charged directly to the room that you have designated. There will be a 25% deposit due 14 days before the event.
At Kalaloch, indoor receptions are usually hosted in the dining room of Creekside Restaurant in the Main Lodge.
Sometimes we can host larger parties in the general dining room, up to 20 guests maximum. Typically, we can only do so in a non-private setting with other guests being seated around you. Seating time will usually be earlier as well, between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., and your party can be subject to a limited menu. Weekend dates have very limited availability.
Out of Season
There is a back room that can provide semi-private seating for up to 34 guests comfortably. However, a party of this size would only be able to rent during non-peak season months, October-May. A rental fee of $200 per hour would apply, 2-3 hours maximum rental time, due 14 days prior to event.
Things to Keep in Mind
Here are some helpful hints for high-level planning.
If you'd like to have an outdoor ceremony or reception, we recommend planning it for the months of June, July, August, and September. This gives you a greater chance of sunshine in the Olympic Peninsula's dynamic climate.
Summer months are our busiest, so booking early is important. Due to the fact that availability is limited, Kalaloch Lodge is perfect for smaller, more intimate weddings.
Given the size and cozy setting of the Main Lodge, Kalaloch doesn't have traditional private event spaces available for rent. As mentioned above, you can host your event in the dining room of the Main Lodge, outside in front of the gazebo, on the beach, or rent one of the Bluff Cabins and hold your event in front of it.
