Hi! I live in Seattle but both my parents are from Yakima and thus my entire extended family lives in that area.

I like the winery idea. There are also a lot of orchards and farms in the area that perhaps do weddings but possibly cheaper? Most of my cousins got married on family property but one of them was at a golfcourse–the Apple Tree Resort. There are some B&Bs out by Zillah…maybe some of them do weddings?

I’ll keep thinking!

I tried to reply to this post yesterday but WB was messed up….argh! 

Anyway, I am going to suggest looking into my vendor for a site: Cascade Garden. It’s just past the airport on W Washington AVE and it’s AMAZING! It’s a ceremony/reception in one, placed on three (basically) secluded acres. Eileen is great to work with and the prices are a steal! 

When I did my research, I found that the wineries, golf courses or ranches/barns are just way to overpriced. I didn’t find any reviews on the old YMCA building either BUT after looking at it, it was too small for a guest list of 100!

Are you dead-set on Yakima or would you consider the Ellensburg area?

I live in Seattle, but I’m from Ellensburg and there are quite a few really pretty venues that, being that it’s Ellensburg, might be cheaper than the Yakima area.  If a lot of your family/friends are coming from out of town anyway, what’s the difference?  The first venue that comes to mind is Springwood Ranch… my cousin got married there and it was so pretty.

On the Ellensburg idea, I went to a reception that was held in a ballroom/event space at Central. It was quite beautiful.

We also looked into Springwood Ranch (aka Party Barn) for our wedding. You have to use their caterers (which make yummy food) and so it jacks the price (as we were quoted) between $2,500-$3,500 depending on the day of the week.
