Washington Park Japanese Garden may no longer be hosting weddings.

Washington Park Japanese Garden




Nestled within the arboretum on a modest 3.5 acres, the Washington Park Japanese Garden offers a truly singular zen space to host an outdoor occasion. Originally created by the world-renowned Japanese garden designer Juki Iida in 1960, this beautiful formal garden also provides a spectacular backdrop for a lovely wedding day in Seattle. Host your ceremony at one of the park’s other locations before retreating into the gardens for a lively photography session, the stone bridges, stepping stones, and authentic plantlife providing a unique setting for this unforgettable day. Celebrate with a small gathering in the Tateuchi Community Room, which is ideal for a small reception dinner or cocktail hour. The space provides lightly vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, as well as a traditional Japanese architectural style that reflects the landscape surrounding it. If you have been searching for one of the most unique venues in the Queen City, then look no further than the Washington Park Japanese Garden!
