Seattle Yacht Club




Enjoying a lovely location in Portage Bay, the Seattle Yacht Club is a gorgeous historic setting for any elegant wedding, whether upscale or casual. Built in the late 19th century and designed by world-famous architect John Graham Sr, the beautiful clubhouse can provide a lovely oceanside retreat from the world. Imagine making the ultimate entrance to your ceremony via festooned boat, wedding your beloved beneath the airy tents overlooking Portage Bay. If you want to continue your festivities outside, enjoy dining on fine cuisine under the stars on our lush lawn. If an indoor affair is more your style, imagine dancing the night away on the sprawling hardwood dance floor before a roaring fireplace in the Fireside Lounge. Be sure to take advantage of the sophisticated grand piano and play soft music to welcome your guests! Between the gorgeous historic setting and room for personalization, it’s no wonder that the Seattle Yacht Club is a favorite location for dream oceanside weddings in Washington State!
