Built in the early 1900’s, the chapel provides a romantic and intimate setting for your special event. The gothic style arched windows, elegant chandeliers and a glowing fireplace gives it the classic charm of yesteryear.
The chapel has an attached bridal room for you and your bridal party’s privacy. There is a small kitchen available for your convenience and outside catering is always welcome. Alcohol is allowed with a banquet permit. We also do most of the cleanup so you and your guests enjoy your special day. Just blocks away you can capture your wedding day memories with world class settings such as the rose gardens in Point Defiance Park or overlooking the breathtaking Commencement Bay. We offer several wedding packages to fit any budget! The chapel is pre-decorated for your convenience, however, you are welcome to add to or make changes to create the wedding of your dreams! Showings of the chapel are by appointment only. We take cash, check and/or credit cards. Read less

We found the perfect venue for our small wedding ceremony in the Ruston Chapel. It was charming and full of character. I loved it from the moment I stepped in, and couldn't have asked for a better location to get married. Thanks Jan and Scott!

My husband and I loved this chapel from the moment we walked through the doors. Jan, the owner was extremely helpful. She was very helpful and made planning for our big day easy. Everything at the chapel was set up for our day just the way Jan and I talked about. She has the chapel set up and you can add your own flowers and choose what color bows you would like on the chairs. The chapel is so beautiful the way she has it and it doesn't require must decorating. At our rehearsal Jan was right there helping us set by step. We could not have doe it without her. The day of the wedding she made things super simple for us. She made sure everyone and everything was right where it needed to be. I would highly recommend this chapel.

First: let me start by saying that although this venue is wonderful, what you're really paying for is Jan, the owner and operator, who is completely amazing. She does so much work that the venue normally wouldn't do. She really takes away a lot of the stress of planning a wedding ceremony and reception and makes sure your day runs smoothly.

The best value that Jan provides is accessibility and flexibility. If you send a question, she gets back to you right away. She's flexible in changing plans as well. She works with you beforehand and day of to make sure everything happens on time. She's constantly scanning the room making sure everything's going smoothly. In addition, she provides additional services like providing drinks service and serving the cake.

The chapel itself is lovely. The main room is beautiful and has great acoustics. Jan has her own decorations that you can use, but you can also bring your own. In addition, there is ample (separate) rooms for the bride and groom to get ready and a small kitchen where drinks and cakes can be prepared.

Make no mistake, this is a modest space. It's beautiful, but it's not immaculate. It has a "country church" feel, which was perfect for us. If you plan on having your ceremony and reception here, plan on keeping your guest list under 50. We did that and had a great time. It was exactly what we were looking for for our modest but nice wedding.

We'd highly recommend the Ruston Chapel both for the space and for the service you'll receive. Thanks to Jan, our day was exactly what we wanted.

Without a doubt, the most beautiful place for a couple to begin their incredible journey together. From the moment my husband and I met with Jan, we knew we'd made the right choice for our wedding venue. Knowing that planning a wedding can be a very stressful time in a couple's life, she made us feel right at home like we'd been friends for years.

Jan obviously loves what she does very much and it shows when she works her magic of keeping everything on schedule, calming the nervous couple and keeping things light, fun and happy. Combine this with her impeccable professionalism and attention to detail, and well, our wedding turned out exactly the way she said it would... beautiful.

The Chapel's location is fabulous as well. Right next to Point Defiance park, Jan suggested the photographer take some pre-ceremony pictures in the rose gardens at the park. They turned out so beautiful! We couldn't be happier.

Everyone wants their wedding day to be beautiful and magical. Our's truly was. Thank you so much..

We could not have ask for more. Everything was perfect. Thank you to Jan and Steve for making my mother's day so memorable. I would highly recommend The Ruston Chapel and you never know, you could be seeing me there sometime down the road. :-)
Thank you again for everything.

We looked far and wide for venues that suited our needs. Originally, we had talked about eloping, but realized we had a number of people that wanted to make the trip with us. As we were planning a same-sex wedding from out of state and weren't going to make a trip to the venue beforehand, we definitely felt challenged to find a suitable place. Most venues were either much too large or were over the top for our needs. In searching high and low on the internet, we came across The Ruston Chapel. Such a great find! Marquelle was quick to respond, provided us with two key recommendations (officiant and photographer) and essentially functioned as a wedding planner. On our wedding day, we arrived to a stunning chapel that incorporated our colors. Marquelle has really put a lot of thought into the space and it shows. I was completely unaware of the area in the back of the chapel where Beth and I could go to get dressed and ready, speak to the officiant about last minute details and get in the head space to walk down the aisle. So perfect! If you're looking for a quaint, gorgeous little space, owned and operated by a very helpful and thoughtful Marquelle, that is perfectly decorated and about a block away from one of the best outdoor backdrops for wedding pictures ever - The Ruston Chapel is the place you want to book. Thank you, Marquelle!
