Lakewold Gardens is a premier 10-acre historic garden estate that features formal and natural settings. Located just south of Tacoma off of I-5 we are near the hustle and bustle of the city, but our gardens feel worlds away. Nestled amidst the lush English-inspired gardens is the Georgian-style mansion which overlooks Gravelly Lake. This historic and unique property is an elegant setting for any wedding ceremony and reception. You and your guests will enjoy exclusive use of the estate. Special features include: a wisteria covered verandah, gorgeous spiral staircase, a unique quatrefoil pool, winding pathways, and a historic brick walkway. Lakewold provides a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos that will continue the memory of your special day for years to come.

Lakewold Gardens is an AMAZING venue.

I had my wedding there a few weeks ago, the property is very open and provides trails, fields, and gardens where guests can wander and explore to enjoy its beauty. The view is amazing as well since you have a view of the lake from the Wagner House.The staff is really nice, Susan the wedding event planner is really responsive and helpful with your questions and planning. Call, email, or write this staff and you will get a response quickly.

If planning a wedding there, it has to be an evening wedding due to it being a public garden until 4 pm. That was perfect for my July wedding since the sun is out longer and it was an outside ceremony. My guests also loved the valet that is provided with the event, it made it even more formal which i loved!!

I would definately choose this venue again! It was absolutely beautiful and the staff was amazing.

Lakewold Gardens is a beautiful venue. It looked absolutely perfect on my wedding day and Susan (in charge of events) is very nice to work with. With that being said, they are NOT flexbible with timeframes, rules, decor, etc. If you have a specific vision, it must work within their policies. They only have 4 caterers that are allowed to cater at the venue. It is a pricey venue, but a truly beautiful setting for a spring, summer or early fall wedding. My photos turned out beautifully. I recommend Lakewold Gardens, but make sure you read all the details in your contract so you know exactly what you can and cannot do.

Lakewold Gardens is the most beautiful venue in the area. My wedding was a English tea party theme. With the house and the gardens it was the most perfect wedding I could have ever imagined. They really take care of their land and the people are so friendly and helpful. My husband and I were not that picky on the day we got married. All of their weekends were booked in August so we just asked them what days they had available. Fortunately, they had Friday the 16th available so we took it. As soon as I saw the place I knew that was it and I wasn't leaving until we had a day. I would recommend this venue to anyone. It is just so beautiful. Go see for yourself!

I arrived at Lakewold last July excited for my wedding. I was taken aback to be greeted by Lakewold's event coordinator who yelled at me for 15 minutes because my vendors arrived early. (They were nervous about the short window allowed for setup. The event coordinator had privately given them the okay to arrive early!) She works under the fear of a boss who micromanages the staff and lacks people skills. The venue has too many restrictions. The staff lacks the creativity and resources needed for your wedding or special event. If you want a beautiful setting with courteous, knowledgeable, and professional staff, the Tacoma Golf and Country Club is the place to go!

I live in Arizona and pick Lakewold Gardens site unseen. It was the best choice I had made. The grounds were beautiful and the service was excellent. The price was a little much, but it was all worth it. I had a wonderful wedding.
