Washington State Legislative Building




The Capitol Campus hosts weddings in some of the indoor public areas and on the grounds throughout the year. The Columbia Room is recommended for private wedding receptions. This octagon shaped room is located in the center of the first floor of the Legislative Building. This open and airy space features a rounded ceiling and neutral colors throughout, allowing you to transform the room into the wedding you’ve always envisioned. The Legislative Building Rotunda is a highly desired location for weddings, but it also has the most visitors when the Legislative Building is open to the public. This location is readily available from May through December. While weddings may be held from December through April when the Legislature is in session, scheduling is very difficult. The space is extraordinary. Featuring marble walls, gold accents, massive light fixtures and stained glass windows, the Rotunda will leave your guests speechless of its architectural beauty. Experience a fantastic wedding day at Washington State Legislative Building.
