Surrounded by colorful flower and herb gardens, the copper-roofed Gazebo, featuring open-air sides, is a beautiful and natural setting for your wedding ceremony. If the weather is not cooperating however, we have built-in heaters, extendable awnings, and customized, windowed tenting that can fully enclose the space. The Gazebo can also be utilized for additional reception seating if you have a larger group size than what our indoor space can accommodate, or for the cocktail hour if your ceremony takes place at an off-site venue.

We offer a selection of wrought-iron patio tables and chairs for this area, tall bistro tables, or a combination of the two. When guests are ready for the reception to begin, the patio leads directly into our Sammamish Ballroom, featuring a full wall of windows and glass doors. This indoor-outdoor connection creates a light and airy feel in the room and provides your guests with a beautiful view of the outdoor space while they dine. Combining the Northwest feel of Willows Lodge with the elegance of a premier wedding reception venue, the Sammamish Ballroom features rustic beams, a warm, neutral color palette and access to the adjoining foyer where we can set up a buffet table, create a lounge, feature a candy bar/buffet...the options are endless!
