Hey everyone! Welcome to my little corner of the internet! Today we’re going to chat about the Best Eastern Washington Wedding Venues. I currently live in Yakima and have been a wedding photographer for about 7 years so I’ve been around this area for quite a while now. I love shooting weddings in Eastern Washington for the wineries, the barn rustic vibes, the constant sunshine, and so much more. So let’s dive in and chat about some of the most awesome Eastern Washington wedding venue. Woohoo!
If you want more of a country feel with a gorgeous barn, open fields, and charm, this venue is for YOU. I highly recommend checking out The Cattle Barn for all it’s country charm and awesomeness. Plenty of parking, bathrooms, an entire getting ready house, gorgeous barn, and a large patio with lights, fire pits, and open fields of photos and a ceremony. There are so many great photo spots here and I’m always finding new spots to take family portraits or bridals throughout the property. So stunning and love it!
Max Capacity: 150
Price Range: $4750 for Saturdays + $3000 for Sundays
Cascade Garden is a little hidden way wedding venue that has ALL THE PLANTS! haha They don’t call it a garden for nothing! Seriously, this venue is gorgeous and has all the feels for a casual garden wedding. They have a pergola you can hang candles and lights from for your reception, a perfectly designed ceremony spot, plenty of room for kids to dance and run around in, and a kitchen/ food area (with a fireplace!) for your guests. The bride and her girls also have a whole house to themselves with this rad greenhouse-like entry way to take all your detail photos in. The boys do have a rather small area to get ready in, but they also have a little private and table to hang out outside.
There are so many areas you can take photos in and next to the venue’s property, there is even a space to get into some tall Hops fields for even more photo opportunities.
Cascade Garden is now offering in-house florals, so you can get your awesome venue and wedding flowers all in one place. Super convenient and they make gorgeous flowers. If you want to see some examples of the Cascade Garden Flowers, check out their website here, or head on over to the Provisions Restaurant and Market for some bouquets and plants for sale there. Also, if you check out the Provisions restaurant, you’ll see a ton of my photos I’ve shot for them 🙂 Woohoo!

Tucannon Cellars is flat out gorgeous. Located in Benton City, WA, this little slice of heaven is awesome. Perfect for that barn vibe but also the winery vibe. Pine walls everywhere and plenty of outdoor games, photo opportunities in the orchard, and more. They really keep their property looking so gorgeous and even in the winter, it’s pretty. You can also have their wine and beverages incorporated into your wedding day and have it available for your guests.
Highly recommend and I can’t wait to shoot here again this year!
Max Capacity: 225
Price Range: Call for pricing. $3000-4000
Parking: Limited near the barn but they have overflow parking
Such a fun and gorgeous wedding venue if you’re more east of the mountains. This venue has it all: glamorous garden wedding vibes, this fun arch way, roses and greenery everywhere, and they maintain their property oh so gorgeously. They have a getting ready house, reception space, and large ceremony gazebo with fountains all around. Definitely a fun venue to check out!

Parking: Plenty in gravel lot.
Oh Lavender Manor. One of my favorites in the Spokane Valley for many reasons. They have lavender growing in the late summer, they have a gorgeous willow tree right on the property, plenty of views for photos all over the place, and a cool barn that always smells like lavender. There’s a groomsmen bungalow and a little room for the bride to get ready in. It’s quite small and the lights are a weird florescent flickering, so I recommend having the doors and windows open for natural light to come in. Gorgeous area and worth checking out. They also have plenty of guest gifts you can use for your wedding, different wedding day packages that fit with any budget, and you’re surrounded by trees. Very cool spot for Spokane weddings.
Capacity: Can go up to 450
If you’re looking for super elegance and dreamy wood-filled views with winery vibes, Suncadia + Swiftwater Cellars is for you. This place is gorgeous and there are so many spots to go take plenty of photos. You can have your ceremony outside at this awesome arch gazebo or down in their cellar where they typically hold receptions. It’s stunning and I can’t wait to shoot here. It’s an open resort and winery, so there’s plenty of parking, trails to walk around on, and great food + wine. Totally worth checking out. I think it’s a great and awesome spot to meet in the middle if you have tons of family coming in from around the state. And it’s gorgeous so you can’t go wrong 🙂
Max Capacity: 250+
Pricing: Call for Pricing ($2000-$4000)
