There are a lot of wedding photographers in Seattle, all with different styles and preferences. From photographers who have bright and airy photos, to those who edit with earthy PNW tones, I have found my niche with colorful images that showcase the feeling of a wedding day. Along the way, I have also found some of my favorite venues that help to bring couple’s wedding visions to life.
Seattle is full of beautiful, modern, colorful and architecturally fascinating wedding venues that I am constantly inspired by. Whether you want a historic backdrop with intricate details like Union Station, or the vibrant colors of the Chihuly Garden and Glass, or an unforgettable Seattle experience on the MV Skansonia, Seattle has some of the most unique wedding venues located right in the city.
As you plan your wedding, you may want to consider the following Seattle wedding venues for your celebration. While each venue has its own unique personality and ambiance, all exceeded my expectations and have become my favorite downtown Seattle wedding venues.

With access to the gallery available for portraits, this is one of the most memorable wedding venues in Seattle if you are looking for an artistic space close to downtown that will definitely wow your guests.
