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 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 the Tolt-MacDonald Park & Campground, this beautiful newly-renovated shelter is nestled next to the Snoqualmie River and features an open park-like feeling and has a beautiful knotty-pine ceiling and skylights. The shelter is located on the west side of the park across a 500-foot-long suspension bridge that crosses over the Snoqualmie River. There is no vehicle access to the bridge shelter or any sites on the west side of the park. Near the shelter are several yurts that sleep six people each and have electricity and heat. We offer a wedding package that includes the Bridge Shelter all day the day of the wedding, four tent sites, two 3-sided camping shelters, all six yurts, the camping container (sleeps 4), and a fire pit area.  You’ll feel like you’re out in the countryside even though the park is located a short drive from Redmond and the greater Seattle area. Note: the wedding package does not include campsites #34 and #35, the small group campsite, large group campsite or the amphitheater area.
