The 7 Best Intimate Wedding Venues in Seattle
If you love the outdoors, then Seattle’s scenic location in the Pacific Northwest makes it a great choice for a wedding. Of course, the rainy climate makes it important to choose the right venue for the time of year, so you’ll want to put some thought into finding a good location. We’ve made it easy by choosing these seven intimate wedding venues in Seattle that are all available to rent from local hosts on Peerspace. They’re ideal for a small group of friends and family to gather for an intimate wedding, and include both indoor and outdoor options.

7. This waterfront home in Bellevue
Have your wedding by the water at this waterfront home in Bellevue, WA that looks out on Lake Sammamish. With room for up to 40 guests, you can have your ceremony outdoors, with a lawn area, dock, covered patio, and outdoor bar all included in your rental. Since it’s a residential area and parking is limited, you may need to hire a shuttle to get your guests to and from the venue. You can also rent a boat from a third party for use on the lake!
These are only seven of our best options for intimate wedding venues in Seattle. From sunny lawns and rooftop venues, to cozy cabins and wine cellars, there’s something here for every style and season. But if your guest list is just slightly too large or small for these venues, you can search on Peerspace by location and event size to find one that’s just right for you.
