the best Waterfront Wedding Venues in the Seattle Area

If you live in the Seattle area, you're probably wanting to show off the best of what the PNW has to offer. As a PNW native, this means getting married near the water with epic views from the ceremony & reception sites.

When I was planning my own wedding, I scoured the web to create a list of all the waterfront wedding venues, then I compared them and figured out which one suited my budget and gave off the vibe I was going for. I wanted a venue that provided catering, had waterviews from the ceremony & reception, and felt like a getaway for my guests but was still close to my hometown. I chose the charming Semiahmoo Resort.

Anyhooo, I digress. For all my brides looking for the perfect waterfront venue, I put together a comprehensive list of some of the best in the greater Seattle area. I've also added some pertinent information about each to make it easier to narrow it down to your favorite! Enjoy!
