The Cutting Garden
The Cutting Garden is a beautiful place for a wedding! I absolutely fell in love with it and had to get married there! The gardens are so beautiful and well kept. You can use your own cateror which saved us a lot of money and the venue itself was less than any of the other venues I had been looking at. The only thing that I didn't like was having to use them for our flowers. I would have like it if I could shop around and choose my own vendor for that, but the flowers did turn out beautiful. But book way in advance to get the date you want, they book up really fast!!
Pros: Great venue for an beautiful outdoor wedding. Ceremony can be held outside, with the Olympic mountains in the background, in the midst of colorful flower garden. Tent outside for covered outdoor reception. Space available inside farmhouse for dancefloor, small reception, or standing-room-only ceremony in case of rain. Talented owner also provides floral services.
Cons: Ceremony and reception time limited to four hours total - may not feel like enough time if you have long distance relatives and friends coming to celebrate.
If you want to have music during the reception, this is not the place.
