Ocean/Waterfront View


Often called “Tacoma’s best kept secret,” the Foss Waterway Seaport offers soon-to-be-wed couples with a beauty wedding venue that is equal parts rustic and romantic. Idea for a maritime wedding with an industrial edge, this lovely event space offers multiple spaces to say your “I do’s” or celebrate your union! Access your wedding by boat at the dock, allowing you to make a grand entrance that your guests won’t soon forget. Exchange your vows on the outdoor Esplanade, a gorgeous space that spans the length of Balfour Dock and provides stunning views of Commencement Bay, the Working Waterway, and Mount Rainier. Convenience to the nearby Thea Foss Park and beach provides additional opportunities for wedding photos. Hold a jubilant reception in the historic Balfour Dock building, a dramatic structure featuring intricate bridge truss-style ceilings that soar to accommodate a wide window wall that welcomes in natural light. As you dine, enjoy panoramic views of the waterway and the Tacoma city skyline as it sparkles in the night.
