Award-Winning Mt. Hood destination adds to outdoor wedding amenities with new covered altar

Brides planning to say “I do” will fall in love with Lakeside Lawn, the newest wedding venue available at The Resort at The Mountain in Welches, Ore.

The award-winning Mt. Hood wedding destination recently unveiled the outdoor wedding structure located adjacent to The Tent Pavilion, overlooking the lake at The Resort. The permanent covered altar provides couples with an ideal setting for their wedding. Lakeside Lawn is constructed with true Northwest flair and measures 13-feet by 17-feet with standout features including Douglas Fir hand-hewn logs, cedar shake roofing, quartzite slab flooring and river rock footings.

Lakeside Lawn can accommodate a bridal party of any size and enhances the natural beauty and setting of mountain weddings at The Resort. Additionally, the names of couples married at Lakeside Lawn will be engraved on the inner beams, creating lasting memories and providing opportunities for couples to return and reminisce about their special day or renew their vows. 

“Lakeside Lawn adds so much character to outdoor weddings at The Resort,” said Becca Kolibaba, director of catering and conference services at The Resort. “The backdrop of the mountain, lake and gorgeous resort grounds make for a picture-perfect wedding, and the addition of Lakeside Lawn complements the unique ambiance of a mountainside wedding.”
