Description:

The Whatcom Museum offers unique and memorable setting for weddings and receptions that will both reflect your personal style and love for each other on your special day. Old City Hall, a Bellingham landmark since 1892, rises above the city with Victorian cupolas and clock tower. It’s red brick exterior is a perfect backdrop for your wedding day celebrations. The grand staircase and historical ambiance add warmth and character to all occasions. The Rotunda Room offers exceptional acoustics and an excellent piano. The Lightcatcher offers a contemporary setting with dramatic architectural interest. Named for its focal point and most innovative feature — a spectacular, translucent wall 37 feet high and 180 feet long — this modern facility captures and plays with the Northwest’s most precious natural resource: sunlight. Indoors or out, this location is one of a kind. The Lightcatcher courtyard is a perfect space to say I do in the warm sunshine. As the sun begins to set, the lights transform this space to a truly magical sight.
