Intimate Weddings & Elopements

Policy and Payment Information

All wedding, elopement, vow renewal and commitment ceremonies require a 50% deposit* to be paid in full at the time of booking. Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard or Discover.

Couples who have arranged a wedding or elopement package will need to secure a license at any County Courthouse in the State of Washington no more than 60 days prior to the ceremony but at least 72 hours prior to the ceremony. You will need funds and picture ID to obtain the license. License must be presented to the officiant on the day of the ceremony.

Cancellations aren’t fun for anyone and are especially unwanted in the case of nuptials, but unfortunately, they do occur. Please read the following carefully and understand the policies as they will apply should a cancellation be necessary.

*Cancellations (with the exception of “The Little Chapel Ceremony”) are handled in the following manner: Refunds are calculated using the total cost of the wedding package. Cancellations occurring with 6 months or more notice (from the ceremony date) will be refunded, minus 25% of the total cost. Cancellations occurring 3 months to 6 months prior to the ceremony date will be refunded minus 75% of the total cost. Those couples needing to cancel within 90 days of the ceremony date will forfeit the total of all costs. 

(Due to the constantly changing mandates issued by the Governor of Washington, weddings scheduled for dates during the Pandemic may need to be moved to alternate dates)  


Bookings for the “Little Chapel” Ceremony in our “Little Chapel of Amazing Grace” are due and payable in full, at the time of booking. All arrangements are made on a first come, first served basis and are subject to the availability of space, officiant and vendors. If cancelled, this package is non-refundable.


​Cancellation of any ceremony may be phoned in but must also be made in writing to Run of the River Inn and Refuge, via e-mail to A response in writing will be sent back acknowledging and confirming that we have received your cancellation.


Run of the River Inn and Refuge has a strict closed-door vendor policy. No outside vendors will be permitted - Officiant may be accepted.


**Pricing and Policies are subject to change without notice. All prices are exclusive of Washington State sales tax and do not include gratuities which are the responsibility of the couple.
