Whether you live in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, are driving from another part of the State to Seattle or are flying in for your elopement, you’ll need a very memorable location and/or place for your small and intimate wedding ceremony.
So, you’ve got some decisions to make. Do you want something formal and traditional? Would you like to exchange vows waterside with your witnesses? Or perhaps you’d like to get married at the top of Seattle’s very popular Space Needle?
No matter what your faith and tradition or style, Seattle has some of the most amazing and fun locations/places for your elopement
Top Of Seattle’s Space Needle – There is so very fun! You’ll need to come up with the $18 per person ticket price to take the ride up the Space Needle and once there, you can exchange vows while taking advantage of spectacular views of Seattle and the Puget Sound. And make a reservation for lunch or dinner and ride up for free.
Snoqualmie Falls – It’s worth the 30-minute ride to the tiny town of Snoqualmie to exchange your vows at the base of Snoqualmie Falls. This is a popular elopement site and many couples often celebrate their marriage with a celebration meal afterwards at the nearby Salish Lodge, which overlooks the Falls.
The Magnolia Bluff – This is an amazing bluff in the Seattle neighborhood of Magnolia which overlooks the Puget Sound. The views are free and your wedding photos will be amazing!
Century Link Field – There is nothing like getting married at home plate! If you are a baseball fan or sports fanatic, you may want to get hitched inside of Century Link Field. Contact the corporate office of the Seattle Mariner’s Baseball team to make arrangements and for more information.
The Willows Lodge – If you want a one-stop shopping venue for your elopement and overnight stay, consider the very popular Willows Lodge located in Woodinville, WA, a short drive from downtown Seattle. Willows Lodge is a beautiful property with indoor and outdoor options for your small wedding ceremony. And if you stay the night, the staff will provide two witnesses for free!
Vashon Island – Hop a ferry from Seattle’s Fauntleroy dock and take a short ferry ride to quaint and picturesque Vashon Island, a small neighboring Puget Sound Island of 6,000 residents. Vashon Island offers many beachside locations for your ceremony as well as intimate neighborhood dining options if you want to stay a bit afterwards before heading back to Seattle.
