Is anything more iconic in Seattle than the Space Needle? If you want jaw-dropping vistas and beautiful sunsets while saying “I Do” in the city, this venue is a must-visit.

If you love the idea of getting married in a historic inn, then you must visit the Roberts Mansion in Spokane. Built in 1889, it has 24 rooms and lush gardens. You will love how your photos turn out with the Queen Anne architecture of the home and the vibrant plants and flowers growing around it. This venue is only a five-minute walk from downtown Spokane, which is ideal if your guests are staying in town and want to explore all that this little city has to offer.
5. The Ridge at Greenbluff
Just 20 minutes north of Spokane is GreenBluff, which is home to one of the most picturesque wedding venues in Washington state. The Ridge at Greenbluff is both a wedding venue and an apple orchard. The owners have been very thoughtful about the number of weddings and events they host each year, so they can ensure that each couple gets the time and attention they deserve.
Because this venue overlooks the ridge, your photos will be as memorable as the big day. With little pathways around the venue, you and your partner can also have your first look or enjoy fun photos with your wedding party in a variety of gorgeous locations.

7. Fern Acres
Located in the town of Forks, Fern Acres boasts a fairytale setting that immerses guests in a secluded magical forest.
