Finding the right Seattle wedding venue

the list of the best Seattle wedding venues

Welcome to my list of the top 17 Seattle Wedding Venues. Seattle is one of the most versatile cities to get married in that I have experienced. Having traveled to weddings all over the country, few cities beat its ability to offer exactly what you need. Industrial intimate spaces? Lush open grassy mountain views? Seattle can do it all.

MV Skansonia

One of the most unique venues in all of Seattle is the MV Skansonia. Up in the Docks located in the U District on Lake Union is this permanently docked old ferry that was build in 1929 and retains all of that old school charm. The view is one of the best you can get on Lake Union with a sweeping cityscape behind you during your ceremony. One of the many great venues owned by Landmark Events.

Kingston House

Alright alright I already hear the rebuttal “this isn’t in Seattle”. Yes, however I think the Kingston House deserves a place on this list! I actually grew up right down the street from this amazing wedding venue, back home in Kingston. They have the most amazing lavender fields in the summer time when they’re in bloom. And have quite a few amazing views for you to pick from for backdrops during the ceremony. You and your wedding party can also stay at the Kingston house leading up to the wedding, which is a great bit of added fun in your wedding days leading up to. This one has a special place in my heart.

Fox Hollow Farm

Another venue that’s owned and operated by Landmark Events. This place is a magical experience the first time you enter. You’re treated by a large, modern home located right next to a calming creek which is a beautiful addition to your ceremony or cocktail hour. The space is much larger than you might first assume, but this is the venue that also supports their farm-to-fork catering mindset! and the food is always delicious, trust me. a Short 30 minute drive ti Issaquah is worth it for this spectacular venue.

Crystal Mountain Resort

Now this is a special one for me. As a longtime Snowboarder I have spent quite a few of my weekends at crystal. But did you know they also have weddings? now you do! If you were looking for the best view of the mountains you could possibly imagine, this might take the cake. Your guests will have a view of the mountains on their gondola ride up to the top, where you will have Mount Rainer right behind you while you tell your boo how much they mean to you. If you want the feeling of an adventurous outdoor wedding without putting too much on your guests for their wedding, this is the spot I would absolutely lean towards.
