Best Wedding Venues in Washington State

Living around here means that there are so many options and it’s hard to pick the best wedding venues in Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, and all of the Evergreen state. When you are based around cities that are between the mountains and the sea, there a little bit of all of those together. And if you want to go a little further, I have a few other options that are for awesome PNW wedding venues that will be exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a big party on the Palouse, a micro-wedding at a winery, or an elopement in Ellensburg, there are options for everyone.

Do know, if you’re considering a smaller elopement, I can help you with that too. No matter if you’re looking towards your own backyard or the North Cascades, I can help.

These are some of my favorite wedding venues in the area, but I also have a complete list of venues in Seattle (list is sortable by neighborhood, price, seating and vibe).

Quick notes:

There are a few notes about this list. I did not include churches or hotels that don’t advertise themselves as wedding venues in this list. Most of these capacity numbers are the normal capacticy, not COVID capacities. Also the pricing is based on a starting price for a 50-ish person wedding (basic packages according to the venue) and breaks down according to these numbers:
$ – under $2,500
$$ – $2,500-6,000
$$$ – $6,000-15,000
$$$$ – Over $15,000

Guest numbers are indoor seating for ceremony (unless otherwise stated)

Please let me know if any links, emails or phone numbers don’t work. I will work to keep this list up to date.

This is just a few. There are so many wonderful places here in the PNW to get hitched (See complete list of venues in Seattle). And don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. I’ve been to a lot of places and would love to help you find the right spot (and then make more awesome photos of your celebration). And don’t forget, I offer free engagements to all weddings.
