ok so my husband and i are looking to have our actuall wedding since we never had one, and i am very interested in having it some where in the washington state. I love the forest, the greenery everything, however i am having trouble finding any thing on venues, and places where i could have both ceremony and reception, i dont really want it to be at a hall or inside, i want to have something in the actual, forest, i know probably sounds impossible,.. well i am in california and trying to find this is just really hard when i can not go there my self and see it, so my question is any body know of any places where i might possibly be able to have my wedding at? near seattle and lake crescent would be nice.. thank you!

I remember seeing this Treehouse (located in a forest) that is in the Seattle area. I don’t know what it is called. I do remember that it’s on the small side, and that it’s pricey.
I think that you can also get the outdoorsy feel from some barns. Farm kitchen? They have large fields that are lined with trees.
I would suggest looking at some of the Seattle Bride sites (like Seattle Bride Mag) and seeing if you can browse through pictures. Good luck!

I haven’t seen it but it looks like an awesome venue!

Yes, I saw that treehouse in a shoot, I think in Seattle Met. B&G? So gorgeous!
There are some really pretty parks in Seattle, like Golden Gardens. I think the Boathouse there is fairly inexpensive to rent for receptions.
Sorry, I’m not much help, but wanted to bump you up in case any other Seattle-area bees know of some good outdoorsy places more outside of the city.

Hidden Meadows In Snohomish has a outdoor ceremony with indoor reception, also the Pickering Barn in Issaquah.

Look at Freestone Inn in Winthrope. It is fabulous! I have been to 2 weddings there and the food and views are amazing! http://www.freestoneinn.com

If you are willing to take a little over an hour drive (maybe make a weekend of forest and fun out of it?), you can head to Cle Elum to Suncadia Resort. It’s gorgeous with like a bagillion activities on the property from golf to spa to river rafting to pool lounging. I’m taking my guy there for his birthday weekend celebration because he loves all things forest!

if you’re willing to have your ceremony in seattle, I know a lot of parks can be booked for weddings. the Aboretum is huge, and I’ve seen tons of weddings there. there are lots of other big parks here too. I’m not sure if you can have a reception there though, it might have to be a ceremony only.

You can get married in Olympia National Forest, and this awesome preseve called Northwest Trek. Google them, they’re both beautiful beautiful places.
I actually took this picture at Northest Trek.

Oh! You should totally check out Mrs. Eggs Benedict’s posts on the blog. She had a very natural woodsy setting for her Seattle(ish) wedding. Might be just the thing for you, or at least generate some ideas. 🙂
