We had a unique situation with Sanders as we signed with Robert and then the venue was purchased by Blue Ribbon Cooking. With that being said, everything went very well! There were some initial hiccups in the transition from Robert to Blue Ribbon. But with the help of Lisa Brenneman everything went smoothly from then on! Lisa is an amazing venue manager. She is prompt, helpful, and kind which is more than helpful during wedding planning.

The venue itself was beautiful and great for our 150 person wedding. We had a blue sunny day in October which nicely complimented the lush green grass, pond, and fountain. We got some amazing pictures and were overall very happy!

The staff at Sanders Estate was very helpful, knowledgeable, and always there for me with any questions or comments I had. They were great day of the wedding because they have everything all set up and ready to go just as you discussed with them, and they even are around day of to make sure your day goes smoothly. They helped recommend vendors as well which was helpful too. All of our guests loved the place and commented on how beautiful it was and how nicely the whole day flowed from ceremony to cocktails to reception. There are also tons of beautiful spots to take pictures which made our photographer very happy too :) We had a great time overall.

Just an absolute dream location. You have the acreage, vine filled trellis, fountain, pond, boat and even a swan! Completely reliable staff, gorgeous setting (several guests said this was their favorite wedding venue they had been too), and just overall a dream come true. Highly recommend this venue!

The Sanders estate was an amazing venue for a wedding. The staff worked very hard to make our day as stress free as possible and did an amazing job. Our guests can't stop taking about how beautiful the venue was. There is a ton of space for guests to enjoy the scenery all along the property with a home away from home feeling. My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better venue!

We had our wedding here in July and absolutely LOVED it. It is such a magical little hideaway, with beautiful landscaping for the perfect wedding. They just changed owners, so I'm sure many things will change. Robert, the previous owner, was nice but lacking a lot of responsiveness. The staff is great and willing to meet your needs without charging you for every little thing (again, that may change with new owners). We had an evening wedding that was perfect for lighting with pictures. We only had a small problem with staff taking way too long moving the chairs from the ceremony site to the reception. There were plenty of posts we read concerning the owner "kicking" the bridal party out of the house once the reception started because he lived there and didn't want their things in the house. We didn't have a problem with that, and i'm sure that has changed since nobody lives in the house anymore. During the planning process, they let us come by multiple times to measure things and bring family and friends to see it. Great place to get married! I would recommend it to anyone!!

The venue is amazing but the staff does a poor job. They are not responsible at all and if you have any issues forget about any help from the owner!

This venue was amazing, and all of our guests told us we picked a wonderful location for our wedding. The grounds were absolutely beautiful (you can see Mt. Rainier from the property!!), and I can't say enough about the charm and natural beauty of the location. The mansion itself is lovely and makes for some wonderful photo ops. The ceremony, cocktail tent and reception are located in three different locations on the grounds, which made for a very nice flow to the evening, while allowing our guests to see different parts of this beautiful property as well. One of our favorite moments was taking the rowboat out for pictures...after the ceremony of course! The venue staff wanted to make sure we didn't take an accidental swim beforehand. They really did think of everything.

My fiancé and I were assigned a venue coordinator, Diana, to work with, and she was awesome. I always felt very well informed about all venue-related details, and I especially appreciated her prompt responses to my many questions, whether it be via e-mail or phone. The venue owner, Robert, was also really easy to work with .

While the cost of the venue may seem a little pricey upon first glance, there weren't any hidden fees we had to deal with later on down the road. The price of the tents, tables, chairs set-up and tear-down was included in our rental, which was one less thing we had to worry about renting separately. They also include a golf cart with the rental (no extra charge!) for guests that might have difficulty walking around the grounds, which was a really nice touch.

Since this is an all outdoors venue, I was a little worried about rain, but luckily our wedding day dawned bright and sunny. I am confident, however, if it had rained, our wedding would have been just as wonderful because the staff at Sanders is very well-prepared with an excellent rain plan.

Sanders also provided great vendor recommendations. They recommended our caterer (ACT 3 - delicious food, wonderful service) and
