Preston Community Center
Built in 1938 as part of the Works Progress Administration, this river-rock faced, historic log building features an expansive multi-purpose room with a raised stage, a separate meeting room for food service, a full-service kitchen, two fireplaces, tables and chairs for 125 people, and a “bride ready” room with a private restroom upstairs. A small park surrounds the center and features a peeled-log Amish gazebo and a “wedding court” with several outdoor table/chairs sets. This is a beautiful setting for an indoor or outdoor wedding site and is offered at a reasonable price. In 2008, the Preston Community Center was added to Washington State's Heritage Register.

Tolt Bridge Shelter
Located at Tolt MacDonald Park and Campground in Carnation, this beautiful newly-renovated bridge shelter is nestled next to the Snoqualmie River and features an open park-like feeling with a beautiful knotty-pine ceiling and skylights. The shelter is located on the west side of the park, across a 500 foot suspension bridge that crosses the Snoqualmie River. There is no vehicle access to the site. Next to the bridge shelter area are several yurts, which sleep seven people each and have heat and electricity. We have a wedding package that includes the Bridge Shelter, four campsites, and all six yurts and fire pit areas. You’ll feel like you’re really out in the countryside, even though the park is located a short drive from Redmond and the Seattle area.
