Our Favorite Seattle Wedding Venues
We’ve been at this for a long time. And I mean and LONG time! We’ve seen our fair share of PNW wedding venues. From rustic barns with moody wooded backdrops, to urban warehouses with cityscape in towering in the background. We’ve seen it all! We also know how hard it is to sift through the hundreds of Seattle wedding venues to find your perfect fit. So we’ve put together a list of our favorite Seattle wedding venues, to hopefully narrow down that process! We’ve chosen our favorite venues based on location, customer service, and of course, the most beautiful ones to photograph!
No. 1 – Trinity Tree Farm
Trinity Tree Farm is a little outside Seattle, in a beautiful mountain town called Issaquah. It is a gorgeous Christmas tree farm with everything from tiny saplings to towering Christmas trees. The venue has two options to choose from: One is a trendy white barn with floor to ceiling windows. It’s the perfect option for a bright and airy summer wedding. It has two rooms, the bridal suite and the grooms room both get great light and are the perfect hang out spots for the bridal parties.
The second option is a rustic wood barn. It is the perfect option for a moody fall or even winter wedding. The barn sports floor to ceiling windows as well, but with a wood barn look, making it dark an moody. I personally love photographing weddings inside this barn, with rain drizzling on the windows. Both options have access to the grounds, including the Christmas trees, the adorable bridge, and vast mountain views. Trinity tree farm is definitely one of our favorite Seattle wedding venues
We have put together an in-depth write up about Trinity Tree Farm. If you are looking for Seattle wedding venues and are interested in Trinity Tree Farm, check it out HERE.
No. 2 – Axis Pioneer Square
Axis Pioneer Square is the perfect option for all the urban lovers. Dark and moody lighting, exposed brick and right in the heart of downtown, this venue is perfect for those looking for that perfect, authentic Seattle look. Greenery looks great in this venue, popping perfectly against the exposed brick, and the options for trendy decor lovers are endless. This is a great venue for all wedding sizes because it has a way of making even the largest weddings feel intimate. It’s got great bones and acts as a blank slate for all those ideas you’re dying to try. This particular couple lit up the space with candles, giving the room a romantic, and warm vibe.

No. 3 – Alderbrook Resort & Spa
Alderbrook Resort and Spa is PNW dreaming with a touch of luxury. It’s perfect for all weddings, big and small. It is a beautiful lodge right on the water, surrounded by the beautiful Olympic National Park. I love this venue because it is so Washington, and so intimate. Wood accents, a perfectly curated lawn, lush green forest, and vast mountain views, this venue offers everything. We also love that it brings everyone you love together, for a perfect PNW experience. The luxury but very adventurous spirit of this venue is what makes it one of our favorite seattle wedding venues.

No. 5 – Islandwood
Islandwood is the perfect, PNW rustic wedding venue. It’s only a quick ferry ride from Seattle and it is 250 acres of dreamy PNW perfection.

They have accommodations for all your guests, for a magical wedding weekend, and romantic options for bride and groom. And the best part!
