These venues are perfect for couples who have been dreaming of a garden wedding venue in full bloom for their summer or an early fall wedding. All of them are extremely photogenic and will have your guests talking about your wedding for a very long time. My favorite part of Garden Weddings is how happy being out in the cool summer air makes everyone. Seattle is home to some of the most beautiful summers around and it’s such a joy to witness two people deeply in love make lasting vows in these wonderful surroundings.

If you have reviewed this list and the list of Seattle wedding venues and would still like additional suggestions please ask! In my many years as a wedding photographer, I’ve photographed at a wide range of venues and would love to suggest other favorites. Please email and ask about the golf course and country club wedding venues, Farm weddings, or elopement destinations.  Looking forward to hearing from you!
