A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Say “I do” on Pier 59 at the edge of Elliot Bay, with the breathtaking blue waters on one side and the Seattle skyline on the other.
  • The Window on Washington Waters in the Puget Sound Great Hall gives your guests a luminous view of the aquatic life around them, with hundreds of swimming fish acting as built-in décor!
  • Their award-winning catering team serves up succulent dishes using local ingredients; plus, they proudly follow the recommendations of the Seafood Watch guide, meaning all seafood selections are sustainable and support a healthy ocean.
