Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Though surrounded by ten acres of lush formal and natural gardens on the shores of Gravelly Lake, this historic estate is only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Tacoma – without being too far from Seattle or Olympia! Once you step through the wrought-iron gates, you'll feel like you're in another world.
  • The Georgian-style Wagner House is bordered by a wisteria-covered terrace, perfect for an al fresco ceremony and reception with a stunning backdrop of ponds, a quatrefoil pool, brick paths, diverse plantings, and a beautiful gazebo. Enjoy your cocktail hour with dancing inside the elegant main house.
  • Their diverse selection of packages are sure to suit many tastes and needs, giving you the perfect setting to say "I do." Nearby hotels, restaurants, and entertainment provide ample accommodation and recreation options for out-of-town guests, many within five minutes of the estate.
