If you’re looking for a unique wedding venue in Seattle, The Ruins is a great choice. This artsy venue describes itself as having a “vintage ambience with a modern outlook”, and it definitely offers something different for quirky couples. The Ruins Seattle wedding venue is a hidden gem that’s warm and welcoming, with a touch of eccentricity. From the chandeliers to the colorful artwork and unique spaces, there’s a lot to admire about this beautiful venue. It’s one of three run by Landmark Event Co (the other two are a permanently docked ship and a modern industrial venue), all of which offer weddings. They also have a catering and floral service, which can make it easier to check one more thing off your wedding planning list.
The Ruins wedding venue is a charming mansion that has a choice of different spaces perfect for your wedding. There’s a courtyard, entrance hall, foyer and member spaces that can all be used for photo puposes only, as well as a range of rooms that offer different atmospheres for gatherings and photos. There are bright and open spaces, which benefit from a lot of natural light, as well as darker and more intimate spaces. There are four main spaces available at the venue: the Dining Room, the Ballroom, the Lounge, and the Maisonette.
The Dining Room could be a great ceremony location, offering a bright space that has lots of natural light, as well as candelabra chandeliers and wall sconces. The fireplace is a lovely backdrop to your vows, and the room can also seat over 70 people for dinner. You can easily set it up to help your PNW wedding photographer get the most beautiful photos. The Ballroom is a darker space, perfect for your evening party. It offers dining for 90 with a dancefloor or, without a dancefloor, space for 120 to sit and eat or 150 to stand. The Lounge is a good space for relaxing and mingling, with access to the patio nearby, and can fit up to 36 people. The Maisonette is a smaller room, with space for up to 25 and vibrant decor, which is an excellent choice for a more intimate wedding.
The overall maximum capacity of the venue is around 250 people. You have the option to rent the venue for just one night, but you can also become a member at The Ruins if you want the benefit of special perks. Being a member means you’ll have exclusive access to their fine dining restaurant, can get discounts ,and enjoy access to special events both before and after your wedding. Of course, if you’re only interested in the venue for your wedding, membership might not be much use to you. An event planner can help you to plan everything for your big day, and a florist is on hand too, to help you get the perfect blooms for your wedding.
If you’re looking for a venue that photographs well, you’re in luck with The Ruins. Your Seattle wedding photographer or Tacoma wedding photographer will be able to seek out both indoor and outdoor locations that are perfect for everything from intimate couple shots to group photos. The artistic venue presents a wide range of brilliant backdrops for your photos, so you can make them whatever you want them to be. This Washington wedding venue is full of whimsical elements and curiosities, which will help to make your wedding and your wedding photos interesting and memorable. It might just be one of the best places for Seattle wedding photography, especially if you want something a little different.
You can use this venue as you please, with its choice of spaces that offer different atmospheres. The Ruins offers options for a small or larger wedding, thanks to its various rooms. You might use it for your elopement and hire a Seattle elopement photographer to document your day or choose it to host a couple of hundred people if you’re planning a big celebration. Wandering around the venue is sure to be fun for your guests, and they could stumble across anything from an animatronic elephant to some beautiful paintings. From the outside, the industrial exterior of the venue might not look like much, but you discover a treasure trove once you step inside.

WOW… I do not know where to start! I did not know Lessie before our photoshoot but I am so glad to have met her and chosen her to capture our engagement pictures! She was so easy to communicate with and so so helpful from start to finish. I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured of my fiancé and I! Not only do the photos look beyond amazing but our experience with her throughout the photoshoot was out of this world! She is extremely talented and was amazing at capturing natural and real moments!

Lessie is an amazing photographer. We could not be happier with our wedding photos. I love that she included many unique shots that I wouldn't have thought of but that I really love. Also, along with the photos of my husband and me and photos of both sides of the bridal party, she captured many of the wonderful smaller moments and details that are hard to notice amidst the busy-ness of the wedding day. We loved seeing those smaller details and the candid photos of friends and family as well. They're all very special to us.
