Nestled on a 71-acre nature preserve encompassed by Snake Lake, the Tacoma Nature Center combines beautiful modern architecture with nature’s natural splendor to create a remarkable wedding venue right in Washington’s wilderness. Exchange heartwarming vows in the depth of the woods surrounded by towering pines. For a less isolated occasion, exchange vows in an intimate ceremony outside of the Nature Center’s rustic architecture. Stroll the preserve’s numerous nature trails and snap unforgettable wedding photos near the sparkling lake, wild wetlands, and peaceful woodlands. Enjoy the ambient honking of the Canadian geese and the lovely songs of the wood duck. When it comes time to celebrate your union, retreat inside the Tacoma Nature Center for a gorgeous reception in a grand gathering room with floor-to-ceiling windows and rich wood interior. You and your guests can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding wetlands, serpentine lake, and majestic forests. If you are searching for an amazing indoor wedding venue that brings the glory of the outdoors into the comfort of the interior, then look no further than the Tacoma Nature Center!
