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.

Sole Repair

Originally a shoe repair warehouse built in the early 1900’s this uber cool event space is located on Capitol Hill in Seattle. 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. Add in the delicious wine and you have the perfect spot for your small wedding in Seattle.

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.

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. 

If you are dreaming of a Greenhouse wedding then a Seattle Tiny Wedding is your perfect small wedding solution. You can join us in September for a spectacular and All-Inclusive tiny wedding at Almquist. Learn all about it here.

Bella Luna Farms 

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. This modern space marry’s the classic styling of Hotel Ballard with a modern city feel perfectly. You could pull off a casual summer cocktail party vibe or a formal evening affair with ease in this uber cool space for a small wedding.

The Corson Building

If food is the most important part of your wedding then look no further then The Corson Building for your small wedding. 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. They even have a more intimate space that will seat 14 for dinner in the upstairs of the house. Think candlelight, good wine, and even better food.
