What a beautiful and perfect location to showcase Seattle's waterfront and city views. We had a lot of guests traveling in from out of town, most of whom had never been to Seattle so we really wanted to show off what Seattle has to offer.

We looked at several venues around the city but when offered the chance to get married on the rooftop and hold our reception inside and outside by the waterfront we couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Bell Harbor made everything so easy for us, by providing their own food and beverage service we didn't have to go out and find a caterer. They also provided us with a wedding coordinator, that I emailed at least 10 times a week, who was invaluable as she was so knowledgeable and willing to help. Our day went off perfectly and all the venue staff were great and polite.

Our guests loved being able to see the great views of the sound and Mt. Rainier as we said our "I Dos" and then be able to eat and dance in a room that looked like you were on a boat as well as being able to walk outside and be right next to the water. We couldn't have been happier with the venue we chose.

We had our wedding here in August and it was nothing less than perfect. We dealt with a few minor hiccups, like the cruise ship being 3 hours delayed, but it actually worked out for the best. Just be wary of cruise ships if you have a summer wedding and know that they don't leave till 4-5, so plan your wedding after that. Our coordinator, Gradee was wonderful to work with and everything flowed perfectly. We were in the harbor room and you can't really beat the view. We had a beautiful summer sunset right over the water and all of our guests raved about the waterfront venue.

The guests also raved about the food (and some still haven't stopped talking about it). We did a buffet with chicken, steak and salmon and it was delicious. The buffet is a little more expensive, but your guests can eat as much as they want, and we had many people go back for seconds. We added some decor and up lighting, because it's a conference room and not decorated for a wedding, but we covered the conference chairs and had drapery and lights hanging from the ceiling. We booked about a year and a half early because we had a long engagement, so we ended up getting half off the room rental and all of the 2013 prices, so book early if you can. All and all, it was a wonderful wedding at a wonderful venue.

Bell Harbor was such an amazing venue for our July 19 wedding!! The weather was perfect and we had our ceremony up on the rooftop where you could see everything! The reception was downstairs in the Harbor Room and was great! The staff was very nice and courteous! Jennifer was a huge help throughout the planning process! All of our guests told us that was one of the best venues that they had ever been to!

Overall, the quality of service, wedding package options, menu, and price were reasonable and very well done! ABSOLUTELY NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE QUALITY OF FOOD OR SERVICE. One main concern, however, is to look into your outside options/resources for any additional technical needs: if you need them to provide an LCD projector, the additional fee is pretty high compared to owning/bringing in your own (so I guess you have to ask yourself if the cost is worth it for extra convenience); same thing with speakers and, of course, lighting, etc. Example, say you need one microphone, the base cost is possibly about $50 each mic (cord, not cordless), plus state tax and additional service fee (~+25% total), meaning one microphone to borrow for your event is another $62 added to your bill. Again, the location and service is awesome -- but if they could lower their additional costs for all the little tech support needs (or have some tech support package deals with more reasonable prices), that could be their greatest area of improvement we would suggest.

We recently had a wedding (ceremony + reception) at the Maritime Event Center and it exceeded our expectations. Jennifer Johnson was our venue coordinator and she was amazing to work with. She was very quick to respond to our numerous emails and agreed to host multiple venue visits just to make sure we knew where things would go. The service staff were all great to work with and super helpful the day before and the day of. I would highly recommend holding a wedding at Bell Harbor since everyone was so easy to work with (especially Jennifer!!!).

We used the World Trade Center and the room is great with big windows that look out into the water. The food was awesome. However, it is a little pricey. They also got my name wrong in three out of the four signs (all different versions of my name). Come on, how do you get the bride's name wrong?

Had my wedding here last weekend. Overall, the service, food, and setting is amazing for a special celebration. We had the ceremony on the roof top with brilliant views of Seattle and the reception in the maritime room. You basically get a whole museum full of extra space to use to your liking. The main room has huge windows facing Alaskan Way with a garage door that can be opened for a gated off patio area.

The food is delicious! The only downside is that the pre tasting is very limited, so you don't get to try everything ahead of time that you end up choosing for the actual event meal. This was a bit nerve racking, but I guess it is because they are not a full time restaurant. You get to try exactly 3 hors d'oeuvres, 3 main courses with their choice of starch and veggie (they ignore the items you are considering as finalist for the starch and veggie choose randomly which veggie and starch to include as samples). I can't complain too much though because everything we picked ended up being terrific and we got a lot of compliments on the food from the guests.

The service during the reception was top notch and our wedding planner Brenna from Bell Harbor was very reliable throughout the process. There were a couple random added little costs that they tried to add on, but they try to work with you if you think the charge is unfair. Overall, I could not be happier with my decision to have my wedding at Bell Harbor. Thank you Brenna!

Overall they were great about explaining their policies when asked but it wasn't very clear at first. To be fair, our plan was a bit out of the ordinary for what they do but everyone was very helpful and willing to accommodate what we needed. The only grip I have is the lack of flexibility on pricing and the lack of value for the price but it's Seattle Waterfront so I guess they can get away with it.
