Washington Wedding Venues on the Water

When I was a bride searching for venues, I found it to be the most frustrating thing. Most venues were out of my price range, and what we could afford wasn't what we had envisioned. Since then I've entered the wedding industry as a photographer and learned there are so many more venue options that I was never able to find as a bride! Now, I'm going to save you the trouble I had and compile lists of outdoorsy, unique, and hard to find venues! 

I'll be starting this series of lists with venues on the water, because that was our one 'must have' while Zach and I searched for wedding venues for ourselves.

First and foremost- Zach and I got married at the Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way. I Highly recommend them since they were prompt and easy to work with! The view of the Puget Sound isn't so bad either.
