Recently Josh and I were talking about some of our favorite Washington Wedding Venues – and we had so many we figured we’d make a post about them!
As you can imagine, we’ve worked at a lot of venues over the past few years, and we’ve fallen in love with so many. And then of course there are the elusive unicorns of venues that we have on our Bucket List (and offer a sweet discount for!) We’ll start with 17 of our favorite Washington Wedding venues list, though.
This list was incredibly hard to narrow down, and there a few that almost made the cut, but hands down these are our top 17 Washington Wedding venues (in no particular order). We tried to only include venues that could accommodate moderate size (150 guests) weddings or larger. If you’re looking for a few awesome Intimate wedding venues and locations, check out this post here.
Do you have a Washington Wedding venue you love? Make sure to tell us in the comments below.
This venue is one of our favorite hidden gems. There are several ceremony site options, and indoor space as well. It has separate bride and groom suites for getting ready and ample parking. The pond, back meadow, tree groves, bridges and gardens give this Washington Wedding venue a very Pacific Northwest feel. The yard has plenty of space for games, and you have lots of options for an outdoor reception too – not to mention the fully functioning kitchen where your food can all be prepped. The Lodge does offer some on-site rentals so make sure you ask about those.
This venue actually has two spaces – the Barn, and the Lodge. If you’re looking for a warm, rustic feeling, the wooden barn would be a perfect match for you. The barn has lots of amazing window light, too, which we love from a photographic stand point. The guys getting ready area is a loft above the main barn complete with TV and pool table. The brides area has plenty of room for all the preparation needed before you walk down the aisle. There is an outdoor ceremony space, and two fire pit areas (one log, one gas) outside to keep things cozy. And you’re surrounded by a functioning tree farm. The Lodge is a beautiful clean white space for an elegant wedding, and mixes the best of both worlds.
The Kelley Farm is another of the idyllic Washington Wedding venues. This beautiful rich wood barn sits on gorgeous grounds and offers indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception space. The patio outside has it’s own bar area, and is a great place for cocktail hour. The groom has a getting ready shed that is quaint and in line with the barn feeling, and the brides cottage has great lighting and enough room to prepare for the day in private. The chandeliers in the barn are an elegant touch and the large doors at the end of the barn open up so things always stay comfortable. We also love the rock fireplace in the barn.
This is a great little hidden venue in Buckley. The brides getting ready area is in the loft of a red barn, and then the outdoor ceremony space is just beautiful with the wood arbor and chandelier. The reception space is tented, and the patio features a bar area for your cocktail hour. The grounds are filled with beautiful trees and fields with lots of options for photo space.
This barn mixes so many barn favorites – the red and white exterior with the rich raw wood interior. There is an attached ceremony space with plenty of room for lots of guests and dancing. The barn is near a park with flowers and trees and trails, with lots of photo space. It has separate bride and groom ready areas, both spacious and comfortable for bridal party prep.
Tibbett’s Creek Manor
CLOSED PERMANENTLY DUE TO COVID
Tibbett’s is another venue with indoor and outdoor options. The separate bride and groom ready areas are on site and upstairs. The long staircase is a favorite of most couples for the elegant but homey feeling. The grounds are filled with flowers and trees and wide open areas and bridges and it backs up to a park with even more beautiful spaces. There are a few options for outdoor ceremonies depending on the backdrop you prefer, and the indoor space has several rooms for food, reception area, photo booth and a kitchen. The deck area is tent covered so that you can celebrate outside no matter the weather.
Wisteria Gardens is nestled among the trees and is filled with gardens, woods, and more. The large barn is perfect for receptions, and there are a few options for outdoor ceremony space. The bride ready room is inside the barn and across the property from the grooms cabin. There is a great outdoor silo bar complete with lounge, too!
Another lesser known gem, this is a newer venue in the Washington market. This beautiful red barn is located in an oasis of farmland and tall grass fields. The inside of the barn is the open rafter and wood, and features a loft with a small space perfect for groom getting ready or even a photo booth. The loft could hold additional tables if desired. The bride has her own getting ready cottage with plenty of space for prep.
The Lodge is situated near Snohomish, Lake Stevens and Granite Falls, and has a fantastic view of Mt Pilchuck when the mountain is out to play. It truly feels like an oasis just minutes out of town. They have a couple of ceremony locations, and this venue is all outdoors. The main ceremony site has a large log trellis with trees surrounding it and open cut wood permanent bench seating. The brides ready area falls below the main lodge and has makeup and hair stations and a functioning kitchen. The grooms ready area is on the opposite side of the reception space and offers a comfortable space for the men to hang out before the events get underway. The reception space has tented areas for the DJ and tables, so rain or shine your event will be perfect. The grounds feature lots of different fields, forests, downed trees, and more so you have plenty of photo ops, room for yard games, and get that PNW feeling. There is also a permanent bar area near the kitchen space and plenty of parking area.
Located just miles from Lake Stevens and Snohomish this is another of the hidden gem Washington Wedding venues. This venue is all outdoors, and has a fantastic view of the mountains. They also have permanent riser space for ceremony seating, a koi pond, gardens, a wildflower field, indoor space for dancing, food, dessert and bar, and a covered reception space on the patio, and plenty of parking for your guests.
Down in Puyallup, this elegant garden space features lots of flowers, of course, but also beautiful rock structures, a pond, white arbor, paved aileway, elegant stairs and landscaping, and a large house for getting ready and food preparation. Another fan favorite is the lighted LOVE wall.
The Farm at Swan’s Trail
This venue is also a functioning farm in the fall for Pumpkins and family fun. The grounds have water features, a pond, trees and open fields. There are a few outdoor ceremony options, and a couple of indoor ones as well. The covered outdoor space is a popular one, but can also be used for reception seating. The indoor area is spacious and has fantastic window light. They also have a fire pit area outside.
This is the largest Washington Wedding venue, I believe, on our list. This barn features a gorgeous wood for the outside and interior. It’s spacious and beautiful with both the round and long table settings. There is a great walled space to keep food separate, a full functioning kitchen and bar area. There is also a spacious back patio with fountain and seating.
This venue is two-fold. Getting ready happens in the main white house which also offers a beautiful interior space for photos. The main ceremony location is outside near the white house and has a white arbor and beautiful view. The barn can also host an indoor ceremony but is large and spacious for receptions, and has a great patio area for cocktail hour.
This beautiful farm Washington Wedding venue is located in Cle Elum and surrounded by fields, gardens and trees. The main ceremony spot is outdoors and located on a peninsula in a pond near a weeping willow. They also offer a mini-horse drawn carriage perfect for your flowergirls to enter on. The large red barn will hold a moderate to larger sized wedding with ease and has the rich wood tone interior. The bride has a cabin to prepare in that is across the property from the groom’s getting ready space.
This Washington Wedding Venue is built around the Seattle Art Museum’s outdoor park. The main ceremony space has a staircase style seating area, and the main building makes a beautiful backdrop for photos… it’s also close to the waterfront and iconic statues in the Seattle area.
Golden Gardens is a great space for an indoor or outdoor smaller to moderate wedding. It’s surrounded by a park with a meadow, trees, and a beach. The indoor space is brick and lots of window light, making it warm and inviting. The real sand beach area is popular for photos, and the second room on the indoor area is great for photobooth, food and desserts.
