THE BEST INDOOR WEDDING VENUES IN SEATTLE
WEDDING VENUES WITH RAIN PLANS BUILT IN!
The rainy season in Seattle has officially begun! However, we firmly believe there is no bad time to get married in this beautiful city. We already shared some of our favorite outdoor wedding venues in Seattle for the dry summer months. But of course, Seattle is famous for being a rainy city most of the year. Today, we wanted to share some of our favorite indoor wedding venues in Seattle. We work with wedding venues all the time, and we absolutely love working with other wedding pros here in the PNW. Seattle has hundreds of gorgeous wedding venues, so you have plenty of options to choose from! But these favorites all have stunning indoor spaces that allow you to celebrate any time of year, with no rain plan necessary. These venues highlight the best of Seattle's architecture, history, and unique sense of place.
City Chic: Block 41 in Downtown Seattle
Block 41 offers the perfect chic indoor wedding venue for city dwellers. Located right in the heart of Belltown, this historic building offers exposed brickwork, wooden beams, and a modern, industrial vibe. The building actually served as a wagon depot for ice delivery before refrigeration! Today, its expansive spaces can hold up to 720 (!!!) wedding guests. It is also extremely convenient to downtown Seattle hotels, restaurants, and nightlife for your out-of-town guests. We love that there are so many spaces within this one venue. The upstairs and downstairs spaces can be used for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in creative ways. The whole building has a ton of natural light, and Block 41 also has an iconic "Seattle" mural outside in their courtyard that is perfect for photos! We love working in this venue, because it provides so much gorgeous blank canvas for us to transform it into something truly memorable.
HISTORIC LUXURY: THE RAINIER CLUB IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE
The Rainier Club provides a luxurious indoor wedding venue in the heart of downtown Seattle. This unique space sits in one of Seattle's oldest buildings, designed in 1904 and beautifully preserved as a historic landmark. Throughout the club, you can find art deco motifs, historic works of art, and luxurious furnishings that add to the ambiance. We love that they have a variety of spaces available for weddings, each with its own intricate, curated decor. Think gold-leafed molded ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and 100-year-old woodwork. Every pocket of this venue is so stunning! If you are hoping for a luxurious, historical venue with lots of Seattle charm, look no further.
INTIMATE COMFORT: OLYMPIC ROOFTOP PAVILION
We just worked here last weekend, when we had torrential rain, flooding, and high winds. Despite that insane weather, The Olympic Rooftop Pavilion was cozy and welcoming the whole time. This intimate indoor wedding venue boasts a gigantic skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows, which makes it feel like you are outdoors. The outdoor patio opens to beautiful views of the city, the Olympic mountain range, and all the docked boats and marinas in Ballard. When we had moments of sunlight, guests eagerly went outside to look out over the city and see this unique rooftop view. We also love that this venue is in the heart of Ballard, a cute neighborhood in North Seattle with some of the best restaurants, bars, and shops in the city. Just outside the door, you can find a great bar to keep the party going, or get a late-night bite to eat. It is also attached to the Hotel Ballard, a boutique hotel that offers you and your guests a place to stay without traveling. We love the ease, comfort, and intimacy of this indoor wedding venue!
A KILLER VIEW: COLUMBIA TOWER CLUB
I won't lie - installing this floral backdrop gave us some vertigo! Welcome to the Columbia Tower Club - a modern indoor wedding venue that provides sweeping views of the city, Elliott Bay, and the 75 floors below it. Yes, that's right - this indoor wedding venue sits on the top two floors of the tallest skyscraper in Seattle. (It also happens to be the tallest skyscraper in Washington, and the fourth-tallest on the West Coast!) Centrally located in the heart of downtown, the Columbia Tower Club provides an exclusive but modern retreat for any couple looking for a unique venue. With in-house catering, proximity to downtown hotels and activities, and two floors of space, you get the perfect mix of convenience and "wow" factor. I mean, just look at this view! We could not tear our eyes away during this daytime setup, and it was just as pretty to see the city lights at night.
RUSTIC PNW ELEGANCE: THE WILLOWS LODGE
Our region has plenty of rustic indoor wedding venues, but some can be quite a hike from Seattle proper. Enter the Willows Lodge, which can host up to 180 people indoors in one of its spaces. The lodge itself is located in Woodinville, which has lots of wineries, trails, and other activities for your friends and family to enjoy. For couples looking for an indoor space that feels outdoors, their gazebo space offers massive windows, natural light, and heaters. It feels quite cozy, even in the winter months! The lodge also offers a ballroom in the main building, which has all the rustic charm of a remote PNW lodge. We also love how their beautiful gardens provide the perfect setting any time of year, especially for stunning photos. Finally, we love that they offer spa and hotel packages for wedding couples, so that you can relax and pamper yourselves leading up to the big day.
HOTEL WEDDING VENUE: WOODMARK HOTEL & STILL SPA
For a larger indoor wedding venue, we love the Woodmark Hotel & Still Spa. Located in Kirkland about 45 minutes from Seattle, the hotel sits on Lake Washington with a view of the Olympic mountains. They offer a wide variety of indoor spaces with waterfront views, even in the winter. The Woodmark Hotel provides an all-inclusive approach for couples who want a gorgeous wedding, without a lot of fuss. With in-house catering, rooms for you and your guests, and a spa so you can treat yourself, you'll have everything you need right onsite!
Hotel Wedding Venue: Bell Harbor INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTER
For big weddings, we would also recommend the Bell Harbor International Conference Center. We know this sounds like a corporate place, but they secretly host some of the city's most gorgeous wedding venues! From rooftop and pier spaces in the summer, to grand indoor ballrooms for winter, you can find the perfect space here any time of year. Located on Seattle's downtown waterfront, they provide beautiful views of Elliott Bay, whether you are indoors or out. This venue works best for bigger weddings, as the spaces themselves are huge. As a point of reference, their most intimate room can host 110 people! But we love how many options they have for couples, no matter the size of your wedding. We also love that they are steps away from the heart of the city and have some seriously amazing natural light.
I hope this list gives you some ideas of beautiful indoor wedding venues we love! As we continue to look towards 2022, we're excited to keep providing you other resources for planning your wedding.
