Port Gamble is a privately owned 120 acre National Historic Landmak on the shores of Hood Canal. A vibrant town with charming turn-of-the-century buildings, a picturesque historic church and New England style homes on maple tree-lined streets, the serene and wooded surroundings and stunning waterfront view offer a unique opportunity for the perfect wedding and reception.

St. Paul's church was built in 1879 and modeled after a church in East Machias, Maine. St. Paul's Church offers beautiful indoor ceremonies as well as indoor/outdoor patio receptions for up to 150 guests. A newly remodeled reception area spills out onto a tented terrace overlooking Gamble Bay. Tables and chairs are included in the venue rental. And we'll ring the steepled church bells as you're pronounced husband and wife!

The Hood Canal Vista Pavilion and adjacent tented Outdoor Pavilion provide a wonderful indoor/outdoor wedding event, perfect for unpredictable Northwest weather. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the views of Hood Canal are spectacular. The Hood Canal Vista Pavilion features a stunning rock fireplace, french doors and huge windows to take advantage of the water and sloping lawn views, accommodating 150 guests. The outdoor tented terrace accomodates receptions up to 200 guests. Tables and Chairs are provided. Read less

Working with the Port Gamble Weddings staff made planning our destination wedding a breeze! They were so helpful and quick to respond to all of the questions/comments/concerns that come up with planning a wedding. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and went out of their way to make sure our special day went off without a hitch. Our wedding was the same day as the annual Port Gamble County Christmas Festival, and we were so impressed with how well the Port Gamble Weddings staff was able to balance coordinating their festivities and making sure we were taken care of at the same time. Many of our guests also complimented how beautiful the venue was, how it looked so clean and pristine, and how friendly the staff was to them. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride looking to have an intimate wedding at a beautiful and unique location.

We recently got married at Port Gamble's St. Paul's Church for our ceremony and had our reception at the Port Gamble hood canal vista pavilion. Let me just say that you will not find a more friendly and helpful venue team to work with. This gorgeous town will be a venue that not only you and your soon to be husband/wife will never forget, but also all of your guests will never forget how special Port Gamble is. The entire town is like out of a book, its just beautiful. With getting marriend in the fall, I can assure you that this venue is gorgeous at literally any time of the year. A huge shout out to Julie and Dionne for being so helpful and just making our wedding a day my husband and I will cherish forever!

We got married on September 2013 in the charming town of Port Gamble with the ceremony at St. Paul's Church and reception at the Hood Canal Vista Pavilion. Julie, Pete and staff were helpful and responsive during the planning process and were accommodating the day of, going above and beyond to make our day as seamless as possible. Our guests gushed about the gorgeous location with the breathtaking view of the water and the cutest chapel there ever was. One of our favorite memories was ringing the church bell after the ceremony and hearing our loved ones cheer. We had such a wonderful day and a large part of that was due to the venue. If you are looking for a truly unique experience that is classy, gorgeous and charming then look no further than Port Gamble Weddings.

Our wedding in Port Gamble at St. Paul's church and our ceremony at the Pavilion were incredible and the staff that supported us throughout it all were excellent. Not only did they provide us with so many answers and bits of information throughout the planning process, they provided great support on the day of and really really wonderful support during the rehearsal and the ceremony itself - a special shout out to Pete for being so reliable, informative and helpful on our wedding weekend - he was the shining star of the whole weekend. In addition to the staff being excellent, the venues are just stunning and make for a lovely, lovely wedding.

Port Gamble Weddings was a joy to work with throughout the whole planning process! There were no last minute surprises or extra fees. Everything as discussed and expected. Timely, transparent and professional.

The venue itself is quaint, gorgeous, Pacific Northwest, elegant, airy and just plain magical. At the initial visit, we decided instantly to get married at St. Paul's and have our reception at the Pavillion.

Working with the team was amazing. Kelly was very helpful, super responsive and open to our needs. I love that Port Gamble partners with AA rentals and picks up all linens, dishes, glasses, flatware etc. the day before the wedding and sets everything up for the party. Including 4 high chairs for us!

The final paperwork in April was very thorough and prompted us to think about all important details.
The rehearsal the day before the wedding was well coordinated and guided by Pete from Port Gamble Weddings. He had a lot of good suggestions and in hindsight we are glad he took charge and gave us a lot of good tips and hints.

The chapel and the pavillion offer a great soundsystem, which we used with our I-phone for ceremony and reception music.

On wedding day, Pete and Kelly were at the chapel to queue and help and give hints. Queues were needed for the wedding party to time their walk down the aisle and for the music to be coordinated. I remember them being dressed very nice and being just as excited and happy as we were.

Staff was also present throughout the ceremony throughout the evening without being intrusive. We didn't have many questions, but they were there when we needed them.

All interactions throughout the whole process were marked by professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and genuine kindness. Everybody we encountered was very personable and easy to get along with. No question was left unanswered and things were explained patiently and never rushed.

Port Gamble is an amazing place to get married. It's got tons of charm! It's a historic landmark, the buildings are all quaint and adorable. However, it kind of weirds me out that the whole place (I mean the whole TOWN) is owned by one company...once I found that out, it kind of developed this sort of creepy vibe to me, but ANYWAY...this is completely irrelevant to my review. The place is beautiful!

The wedding venue (s) are obviously a huge money maker, and in some of my interactions it didn't feel like Port Gamble Weddings would be willing to bend over backwards to make me feel "taken care of", because they have no shortage of weddings to book there. I heard second hand that someone from the Port Gamble staff at my wedding were standing in the back talking loudly about how wasted they were at some rager they went to - while the guests were walking in! Uh, not cool? So that's where they lose stars on professionalism.

I would say Port Gamble Weddings' saving grace (other than how gorgeous the location & venues are) is their assistant coordinator, Kelly. She was friendly, professional and super attentive whenever I brought up any issues, and I really enjoyed working with her!

I can't say enough great things about the amazing vendors at Port Gamble. They went above and beyond with our entire wedding and made the day completely stress free for my family and I. The people that we worked with from the coordinator to the setup team were so friendly and all around great people - exactly who you would want to be at your wedding. The grounds were beautiful, the flowers during summer were especially incredible!

We fell in love with this church way before we got engaged. We both knew that when the time came, this was where we would get married. Everyone here were great to work with. Very quick to answer any questions, and easy to get ahold of. They also have a wedding coordinator that helps with some of the set up, prompts everyone when to walk down the aisle, and is there for questions. I had a wonderful experience working with St. Paul's church, and would highly recommend them. It's a great location, and perfect for a more intimate setting. The only major downfall of this location, is depending on the ferries for guest arrivals. We warned them of possible long ferry waits, and were glad we did, as it was a 2 hr (or more) wait.
