This venue is absolutely gorgeous and for a great price!! I was married here in July 2016 and was pleased with the quality of service and organization of the staff. The only negative I have is that the dairy barn is not air conditioned so many of the guests ventured outside during the reception. Just a heads up for you summer brides! If I would've known, I would have put cocktail tables and the bar outside! Otherwise the entire day ran smoothly and the photo backdrops were gorgeous!

This venue was absolutely perfect for our Spring wedding! I really wanted a rustic barn wedding and other venues that I looked into were so expensive! Pickering is a city of Issaquah building was a lot less expensive than other places. Plus, you get the barn and then some! The staff set up all of the chairs and tables and took them down a the end of the night. We had about 100 guests and the reception area holds 400 people! We had our bartender, DJ an photo booth set up with our tables and it was the perfect amount of space for dancing at the end of the night! I highly recommend Pickering Barn. We came away with some amazing photos and I could not be happier with how everything turned out and the quick responses from the staff.

The Pickering Barn staff were extremely helpful and very friendly! I was so impressed at their professionalism. They went above and beyond their job duties. I am so glad I had my wedding at the Pickering Barn. It is a stunning venue and it has beautiful scenery for pictures. They let us use our own food vendors, which saved us a lot of money.

My husband and I searched tirelessly to find a venue that fit our vision, our family and friends (300!) and our budget after we got engaged. Many places we came upon were too small, didn't come with much of the equipment so we would have had to rent it ourselves at an additional cost, or were so outrageously priced I had to laugh in order to not cry. When we stumbled upon Pickering Barn, and I do mean stumbled as it wasn't being very well advertised on wedding sites at the time, we thought it must be too good to be true. We were very eager to see it and booked it before we had even gotten the chance to go visit. HUGE risk, but when we finally got up there we couldn't stop smiling and laughing - it is truly stunning; I don't think the pictures do it justice. The venue is so simple, rustic, and lovely that you could do a ton of decor with it and would transform into whatever you would like, or you can do what we did and go pretty simple and let the beauty of the space shine. My family and friends couldn't stop talking about what an amazing venue it was and our pictures are stunning. You wouldn't believe that we were sitting in the middle of Issaquah across from a Costco! It made it really easy for people to navigate and with reasonably priced hotels just a short walk or drive away it made for easy access for out of town guests. The staff was also wonderful. They answered questions quickly, allowed us to add on or take away as we needed, gave suggestions on how to easily decorate when we went up for an open house, and were not hovering throughout the wedding, but arrived in the later hours to start tearing down. They were just so kind.

My biggest suggestion for you is to book this place EARLY if you think you want it. Since it is owned by the city their cost is much lower than privately owned properties, and word is getting out on its size and beauty. We booked nearly two years out and when we went up for an open house a year out, every weekend was booked solid.

This was the perfect venue for my ceremony and reception. It had plenty of room for all of our guests, was affordable, plenty of parking, was very close to hotels for guests and was beaufitul inside and out. I loved everything about it. If I had to plan my wedding all over again, I would not change a thing about it being held at Pickering Barn.

I selected the Pickering Barn because I grew up in Issaquah and loved the space they had. The only difficulty is how far out you have to book, which if you have a long time to plan - this is great and shows how popular they are. The staff was super accommodating and didn't interfere with our wedding other than to make sure everything was going smoothly. They would respond to e-mails and answer questions with plenty of open house opportunities to see the space. The workbook they provide with their rules, regulations and equipment is helpful in planning and very detailed. I would recommend this venue to anyone since the value for the space is wonderful.
