We got married here in September of 2016. We fell in love with this venue from the moment we saw it. Dragonfly Retreat is absolutely stunning and unlike any other venue we looked at in the area. It seems like every time we visited there was a new project being worked on. The property is constantly improving and becoming even more beautiful. The latest addition, "The Treehouse" is a gorgeous getting ready area we used for the groom.

The owner, Kathleen, is very detail-oriented and responded very promptly to all our questions and concerns. There are a lot of specific rules associated with this venue such as no microphones, less than 100 people, etc. but this was not an issue for us. Just make sure that you read the contract and ask lots of questions before deciding if this venue is right for you. If you are planning on a raging party, then this probably is not the best venue for you. Kathleen is on the property during your event, so you always have her available if any questions or concerns arise.

We wanted an outdoor venue but being in the Pacific Northwest we needed options for if it rained. This venue has it all. Although it is primarily outdoors, there are plenty of areas to accommodate for a rainy day. And Kathleen is very prepared, she has plenty of additional setup options for your ceremony and reception if it rains. There is flexibility with your choice of vendors, which is not an option with all the venues we looked into. Just had to have our vendors come out to the property in advance. There is a lot of space and freedom to decide how and where to layout your ceremony and reception.

There is lots of wildlife on and around the property, especially Dragonflies :) This was a gorgeous Pacific Northwest Venue to get married at and was just what we were looking for. All our guests were very impressed.

Kathleen was awesome, very helpful and quick to respond to my questions. Unfortunately it rained on the day of our wedding (in June), but Kathleen helped us with a rain contingency plan, which was great. We still had a great time, and I don't regret the choice, even with the rain.

Kathleen was nothing short of awesome! She was always there to answer any questions we had about the venue while we were planning the wedding. With such a naturally beautiful venue, there really wasn't need to do much decorating to the place! At six acres big too, there are lots of little nooks and crannies for people to sneak off and have a private moment. All of our pictures turned out wonderful, and a big part of it is due to the venue background we had! Kathleen also gives a very generous time slot for you to use. We could not be happier with the outcome of it all, and we are happy it will always be a part of our lives.

Kathleen was great to work with, very helpful answering my questions and responding promptly. The venue is out of this world if you want elegant but at the same time green, natural, and outdoors setting. Multiple friends and family couldn't get over how cool and beautiful the venue was and how "us" it was. My dream home would be similar for sure.
I took getting ready photos at the hotel, but my fiance took his at the venue (there is a really cool outside sink area in the trees where he shaving/hair photos at). I'm super excited to see how those turned out.
I loved that there were things we could work with as far as decorations go, but the venue is so pretty you don't necessarily need to. We did decorations just for fun.
There was space for our lawn games as well which I really liked.
And the patio cover where you eat under is awesome -super beautiful/elegant, you still enjoy the outdoor beauty, etc.
I used a photographer that had taken a few pictures on the venues website. She loved the lighting you get through the trees and the wooded area for taking photos. I still haven't seen how they turned out, but if it's anything like on the website they should be great.
Loved that we could bring in our own caterer and alcohol. Our caterer was on her list of recommendations and I was very happy with their delicious food (the owner is super cool).
The hotel we stayed at pre-wedding was also on her list of recommendations and was also perfect - it had a kitchen/living space and extra hideaway bed. We hung out in the area for awhile and so stayed in both the one and two bedrooms.
Overall you're crazy not to go check out the venue if having a fun, green, outdoor, wooded, but elegant and beautiful wedding is what you want.

The venue speaks for its self, it is absolutely gorgeous. I had originally planned on having my wedding outdoors but because of the rain, we had to move it indoors on the day of. Even with the minor set backs, the ceremony went off without a hitch and we were able to keep everyone and everything dry. Kathy was attentive and was able to help us with some ideas if it did rain. I would absolutely suggest this site to anyone!

The wedding site was beautiful! It was peaceful and calm and green all around like we were in the middle of a forest. Kathleen was very easy to work with, she was always available to answer questions and she let us come by several times before the wedding to have our caterer, photographer, florist, etc. get a look around before the wedding. She also made several new improvements to the place after we booked, so we got some extras for no additional cost, she said she is always trying to improve and make it better. We had planned to have everything outdoors, but it was cloudy and looked like it could rain, so we moved the dinner and dancing inside, which was cozy and ended up fitting our 65 people wonderfully. A larger party would need to be outside i think. The ceremony was still outside on the lawn, and luckily the rain held off all day, it turned out to be perfect.
