10 small wedding venues in the Seattle area

When you slim down the size of your wedding the possibilities for venues really opens up. From an art studio to beautiful PNW garden estates. There are so many options in Seattle to have a small but very special wedding.

MadArt Studio

A working art studio, this incredible industrial space located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood is a hidden gem. When they do not have large scale interactive exhibitions they rent out the space to private events. Brick walls, industrial accents, it is the perfect blank space. The best part of hosting an event at MadArt is you are supporting the local artisans who exhibit there. 

If an art studio is your vibe, you should check out our Seattle Tiny Wedding happening in June 2021 at MadArt Studio.

They offer many on-site services including; rentals, in house catering, bartending, staffing, sound system, and even an event coordinator. A perfect venue for your small wedding in Seattle. 

JM Cellars

Voted best outdoor venue by Seattle Bride this gorgeous winery is nestled on a hillside in the trees of Woodinville wine country. Only about 30 minutes from downtown Seattle it feels much farther away and is totally secluded from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is the perfect Pacific Northwest venue for a small wedding. Several outdoor options for the ceremony and plenty of intimate options indoors as well with amazing picture backdrops around every corner.

Axis Pioneer Square

Ok, this one isn’t a “small” wedding venue, it actually can handle really big weddings if you’re looking for that, but this historic building, located in Pioneer Square, can handle any kind of event. With multiple areas you don’t have to rent out the whole venue. You can choose the perfect space for your small wedding and the venue also includes Nord Alley, Seattle’s most beautiful alley space. Think old New York and an entirely special space for a downtown Seattle small wedding. 

Interested in having a small wedding at Axis Pioneer Square? You’re in luck! We’ve got one planned in August, learn more about a Seattle Tiny Wedding at this venue here. 

Woodinville Lavender Farm

Another gem nestled in Woodinville wine country, this gorgeous lavender farm has fantastic outdoor ceremony options. They specialize in small weddings so you will be in good hands with this venue and they even have many included services and rentals included in their packages. Like handcrafted tables and a wedding coordinator! A great value in an unforgettable location. They are open year round, but you’ll want to book early to get a date in peak lavender blooming season, June through August.

Almquist Family Winery

This is a special gem located in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. With several rooms to host your small wedding there are plenty of options. I’m not sure which space is my favorite. The Greenhouse is stunning. Overlooking the Lake Washington Ship Canal and a grassy green park, it is stunning all year round. Then there is the barrel room, sitting at an intimate table surrounded by floor to ceiling oak barrels is magical! This space does not disappoint and with in house catering by Table Catering Co you can not go wrong.

Named Best Intimate Venue by the readers of Seattle Bride in 2020, Bella Luna Farms is a very special place for a small wedding. They have extensive gardens, a creamery, and even a chicken coop. They offer a true Farm to Table experience for their guests in an intimate PNW outdoor setting. The Grape House in particular is a stunning representation of the perfect small wedding space. Enclosed in glass with grape vines encasing the building and cascading down, it is a truly beautiful and unique venue.

Olympic Rooftop Pavilion

Head on up to the 5th floor of this space and take in the incredible views of Pacific Northwest mountains and waterways. A 20 foot skylight and floor to ceiling glass doors that open to a patio with a fireplace keeps the space light and bright.

Each event comes with a custom menu tailored to your event using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Originally built as a house in 1926, this historic venue is a beautiful backdrop for a small wedding. Seating 32 people in the restaurant, available to rent out for private events, in the summer the capacity expands to 80 people using the outdoor patio.

Farm Table Inspiration

Farm Tables are amazing. They elevate a wedding or party to the next level. Your plates are going to pop, your candles are going to glow, and your guests will never forget the ambiance that a handmade wooden Farm Table will bring to the party. 

The Best Farm Tables

We don’t want to brag. . .ok we totally want to brag! We have the best Farm Tables in the PNW. If you are looking for a design element to take your party to the next level, look no further then our Modern Farm Tables. We have 20 of these beauties, enough to seat 200. They have a warm wooden top that lets the beauty of the wood shine through. Our farm tables are finished with a walnut oil to highlight the rustic natural grain. 

Hand Forged Farm Tables

One of the most important elements of our Farm Tables is the hand forged iron legs. When we were building these tables we looked high and low for a metal worker that got our vision. We’re a woman owned company and to find another woman that could bring our vision to life with the modern Farm Table hairpin legs was the perfect pairing. We couldn’t be happier with how these Farm Tables turned out and we know you will love them just as much. 

You can have these Farm Tables too

If you’re looking for some Farm Table Inspiration look no further. Here is a sampling of some of the amazingly beautiful events we have done from Seattle to the San Juan Islands to East of the mountains in Washington State with our one-of-a-kind Modern Farm Tables

Spring Colorful Wedding Shoot

Spring Colorful Wedding Shoot

Spring Inspiration for a Colorful Wedding

When an incredible piece of art from Quinn Dimitroff meets Amber from Rock and Stone Weddings and Lilly from Colbri Blooms AND it happens to be spring, magical things happen. Captured by Carley Jayne Photography and first seen on the Green Wedding Shoes blog this colorful wedding inspiration shoot delivers some serious Pinterest material! 

Shot at The 101 in downtown Seattle. Amber, using Quinn’s artwork as inspiration, designed several amazing and colorful wedding scenes inspired by the colors Quinn used to paint her fabric wall hanging. Lilly used these colors as inspiration for the colorful wedding spring inspired flowers she used all over the shoot. From the suspended arrangement over our Modern Farmhouse Table or the lushly topped geometric shapes in the custom designed colorful wedding ceremony backdrop, these florals were on point! It all came together to create a colorful wedding that is design forward and one-of-a-kind. 

 Everyone Chips in for a Colorful Wedding

So many other vendors chipped in to help pull off Amber’s vision. The His and Her Vow Books really stand out. What a beautiful idea to keep that memory for years to come. The blue of the stationary really helps make the pastel spring colors in the design palette stand out. State of Reverie is a pro at bringing the spring colors together on stunning paper. 

Can we talk about this cake? Another example of the pastel color palette executed perfectly. You can bet that Sift and Gather makes it taste just as good as it looks. If you’re looking for colorful wedding cakes this is it!

We always jump at the chance to collaborate with Amber from Rock and Stone Weddings. Her eye for design never disappoints and her skills as a planner make everything seamless. We’re not surprised this colorful wedding shoot got picked up at Green Wedding Shoes. This is the perfect Spring Inspiration for weddings and the perfect team to pull it off.

Island Wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Island Wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Stefanie + Joel // Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Farm to table AND on an island. What an incredible setting for this colorful summer wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island. Have you been to Orcas yet? Get on a ferry and get over there! One of the San Juan Islands most beautiful spots, we find ourselves there a lot over the summer. At weddings of course, but also just taking our families and enjoying the island. 

Bring your appetite to Orcas Island

Eastsound is an adorable little town with great shopping and even better food. Seriously, the food on this island is incredible! O that reminds me, the food at this wedding! Wow. Provided by Ecolibrium Farms they did not disappoint. The spread was so beautiful and all organically grown. A true testament to the vision of a Farm to Table wedding Stefanie and Joel envisioned. 

A ceremony only an Island could create

Pebble Cove farm has island beauty all around it. The ceremony was held in a grassy area with the beach just steps away and a view of the Puget Sound beyond. It was obvious that little odormant was needed. The natural surroundings at Pebble Cove Farm are some of the most beautiful in Washington State. 

Flowers stand out at Pebble Cove Farm

Next to the food the flowers took center stage. Colibri Blooms brought all the stems and an explosion of pink, mauve, orange, purple, and more brightened up the natural island surroundings. There were little touches everywhere, down the tables, on the cake, and even a DIY flower crown station. Bringing the guests into the fun and putting even more flowers all over the place. This wedding was truly special and you can see it in all the details. Amber from Rock and Stone Weddings put it all together for one unforgettable day. Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island is a special place to bring together family and friends and we’re so happy to have been a part of Stefanie and Joel’s day.
