Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's in an incredible section of Chambers Creek Regional Park, just southwest of Tacoma and an easy drive from Seattle. The park's 930 acres are home to trails, wildlife, and some of the area's most amazing views.
  • Exchange vows perched high above Puget Sound on the Ceremony Lawn, where the breathtaking panorama extends in every direction. Follow with cocktails in the courtyard, and a reception in the award-winning, light-filled event hall.
  • You can capture some unforgettable photos along the park's two miles of shoreline, where you'll find beautiful rock and driftwood formations, and the occasional guest appearance by visiting wildlife.
