Seattle Yacht Club
SYC did a fantastic job with our wedding as a reception site and caterer. The food was fantastic and the service was phenomenal. Amy Shaftel was incredibly helpful and flexible with our needs and schedule since we were planning the wedding from 3,000 miles away. The only drawbacks were minor: 1) It is a private member's club, you must be a member or be sponsored by one, but Amy helped us find one. 2) If you bring your own wine there is a $15 corking fee. Apparently this is normal, but the corking fee added up quickly. These were minor and were FAR outweighed by the positives. Nearly all aspects of the reception were handled for us by the SYC staff, and extra space was made available for child care and cocktail hour. All in all we were very happy and very impressed with the quality of service provided.
Just had my reception at the Yacht club, so successful! Amy was amazing to work with and everything was exactly as I had hoped! Had a tented dinner outside and dancing was inside- we needed both rooms, but for my size (225 people) of wedding it was the perfect amount of space! I was 100% satisfied with everything!
SYC is great, but you do have to be a member or sponsored by a member to use the place. Half of our reception was out on the lawn and the other half was inside. We had both dinning rooms, so we had tons of space. The dance floor is a decent size, but our group was a little too large for it.
