The attention to detail is impressive. However, despite all the luxurious touches, the truly luxurious experience is spending a night under the stars in a beautiful forest. Enjoying a peaceful morning with a coffee mug and a book in hand is also a real 21st-century luxury, considering the fast-paced environment we live in.

Activities Guests Can Enjoy

Apart from relaxing in the indoor and outdoor hot tubs and swimming pools, guests can also hit the gym, book a nine-hole golf course, and have fun at an adventure park with seven zip lines and three sky bridges. As you can guess, there’s a spa and various on-site eateries.

The lodge is only a 45-minute trip from Portland, located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Guests will be able to book a glamping tent starting May 2024. Skamania will also launch a bunch of new cabins and a three-bedroom villa perfect for larger groups. These will be available in April 2024.

When it comes to weddings, everyone awaits the big moment the bride reveals her dress. When it comes to celebrities, with their lives of glitz and glamor, we can’t wait to see what gorgeous gowns they choose on their wedding days.

Meghan Markle

It was the wedding of the year when former actress Meghan Markle got her fairytale ending by marrying Prince Harry. The world awaited the moment Meghan would step out in her wedding dress, which was revealed to be designed by Clare Wright Kellar, the first female artistic director at the house of Givenchy.

Victoria Beckham

She may be a well-known fashion designer these days, even designing wedding dresses for her pal Eva Longoria, but back in the 1990s, Victoria turned to Vera Wang on her big day. As a member of one of the biggest girl bands and a soccer star known internationally for his kicking skills, this was a wedding fit for royalty. Therefore, it is no surprise, that Posh Spice topped off her champagne satin gown with a gold and diamond tiara, which she later auctioned off in London.

“One Two Step” hitmaker, Ciara, looked every inch a Princess when she married her Seattle Seahawks football player, Russell Wilson.

Kaley Cuoco

For her first marriage, Kaley Cuoco wore a pink, princess-like gown, and had an upside down cake from the ceiling during the party. The Big Bang Theory actress did things differently when she made her way down the aisle for the second time, this time wearing a custom-made Reem Acra 1920s inspired gown. Her dress took 50 years of pure silk chiffon, and ten seamstresses to make the gown perfect. With their similar love for horses, the newlyweds took wedding photos in horse stables, with Kaley making the most beautiful bride.

Whitney Port

Speaking of her big day, former The Hills star, Whitney Port said, “We wrote our own vows and had members of our family marry us, we didn’t do a sit down dinner because we are way more casual than that and wanted everyone to have little bites of everything, including all of our favorite things like a bread bar! We named cocktails after our nicknames for each other, we chose all the music by making a playlist for the two years we were engaged.”

Lauren Conrad

We watched Laguna Beach: The Real Orange Country and The Hills star, Lauren Conrad, fall in and out of love with her boyfriends on the series’ but she eventually tied the knot with William Tell in 2014. For her big day, she had ten bridesmaids by her side, stating “it’s really a personal choice.” She added, “I think as long as the number doesn’t distract from the nuptials, you’re fine. Also if you have a large group, having them sit during the ceremony works well,” she added.

Kim Kardashian

It was a marriage that became more famous because of its divorce, but before there was Kanye West, there was Kris Humphries. Reality queen, Kim Kardashian, said her “I dos” in a lavish affair when she married her NBA player beau in 2011, with the event reportedly costing more than $10 million. That didn’t seem to matter when the couple went their separate ways after 72 days, but it did mean Kim had to say goodbye to the $2 million 20-carat rock on her finger.

It is not surprising that George Clooney finally decided to settle down with Amal Alamuddin after years of playing one of the world’s most eligible bachelors – because just look at her!

However, the 23-year-old at the time proved that tradition does not need to be followed for a successful marriage and, five years later, the couple is still going strong! Sometimes it is all about going with what works for you.

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel looked every inch a vision of beauty on her wedding day and explained to Elle magazine, “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.”
