Autumn in Seattle is one of the most romantic seasons. The red and gold foliage and soft light from overcast skies lend themselves to studding wedding photos and video. With the good chance of sun in September and the stunning sunsets in October and November. Having an autumn wedding is guaranteed to wow your guests and give you beautiful photos and videos that you will cherish for a lifetime. When choosing an Autumn wedding venue in Seattle you want to be able to take advantage of the beauty of the season while ensuring that you and your guest can stay warm and dry. The following venues ensure the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor space.

I have not personally filmed a wedding at Kubota Gardens yet but here is a photo from an Autumn day of my dog.
If you are looking for autumn color look no further than Kubota Gardens. This 20-acre Japanese garden featuring 140 different maples truly shines in the autumn when you are surrounded by red and gold foliage. The red bridges and multiple ponds are perfect for pictures.

If you want stunning views and flexible space New Castle in Belleview is worth a visit. From the patio and tent you get stunning views of autumn foliage, the believe skyline, and Lake Union.
Snoqualmie Wedding Venue: Salish Lodge and Spa
If you want a hint of rustic check out Salish Lodge and Spa. Surrounded by humongous evergreens and a short walk to the falls you are sure to get pictures that you will treasure forever. The Lodge is sure to impress and with many different ceremony and reception options you are sure to find the perfect fit. Yes, it is a little ways from Seattle but it is close enough that you have to consider it because the travel is worth it.
Thanks for reading my guide about choosing the right fall and autumn wedding venue near Seattle. The big takeaway that I must emphasize for any fall wedding is to have a rainy weather plan. However, don’t let this stop you because the solution can be as simple as renting a large tent which most event rental companies rent for a reasonable price.
