What happens when you add AAA 5 Diamond hospitality experience to a stunning waterfront wedding venue? Pure bliss my friends! This is what wedding dreams are made of!
We help make it easy to plan your wedding if you are out of town, out of the state, or even out of the country. Some of our couples have planned their special day without even visiting the venue, and their day turned out perfect! We received the following review from one of our brides who planned her wedding from Hawaii, (Yes! … HAWAII…all of her family and guests from the Hawaiian islands as well.
"This venue was gorgeous and impressed everyone with its beauty. The place doesn’t have to be decorated for one to appreciate the natural beauty. You get the best of both worlds - greenery and a beautiful waterfront. You can’t go wrong with selecting this venue. You feel like you’re in a different world. The fairy lights are beautiful at night and Peggy is amazing at making sure the venue is in tip top shape. She’s very sweet and helped me figure out my vendors as I was planning the wedding from out of state." - Loren T.
More west coast brides from Seattle and California brides are finding our venue to be everything they are looking for. Only one hour Northwest of Coeur D'Alene on over 1000 feet of pristine Pend Oreille River shoreline sets us apart as one of the most breathtaking waterfront & mountain wedding venues in the Pacific Northwest. There's no need to worry about fighting the crowds to capture the majestic beauty of the pacific northwest on your wedding day.
As our Hawaii bride said, there’s no need to feel like you need to decorate, saving yourself hundreds of dollars. Our venue is beautiful all by itself. We also include cedar wood rounds with lanterns or clear vases for centerpieces. Waterfront, mountains, woods, chandeliers, fairytale lighting,...the perfect combination of PNW chic and natural elegance. Our unique waterfront ceremony & covered barn reception space provide a stunning landscape to dedicate your love story.

One of the best parts of choosing Grand Pend Oreille is it allows you to expand the typical one day wedding wonder into an epic Pacific Northwest escape where your friends & family can make memories they will cherish for a lifetime! We can help make it happen!
