If you are looking for a romantic venue south of Seattle, I highly recommend Laurel Creek. LC is, by far, the most gorgeous venue I've been to in the South Sound...plus, Kirsten and her team are absolutely amazing! My husband and I found Laurel Creek four days after our... Read More engagement and we're so glad we did. They only have one Saturday left in September (which we snagged). From the moment we took the first tour, Kirsten was friendly, honest, outgoing, and extremely easy to work with. Through the planning process, Kirsten was a lifesaver. She worked with my mom and me to bring our vision to life, from using their gorgeous farm tables to renting chairs to match. The pre-wedding planning session with the walk-through was also a huge help. Never feel like you are asking too many questions - Kirsten is so sweet and quick to respond and she offers great advice and support! For an outdoor space that is the home of many weddings throughout the year, I couldn't have been more impressed with how everything looked on our wedding day (September 30). The grounds are perfectly kept and the garden florals she chooses are gorgeous and neutral enough to match everyone's wedding colors. This didn't deter us from having an amazing time, but there are a few things to note -- you must use a venue-approved caterer (she gives four options...Snuffin's is AMAZING, by the way) and kegs are not permitted. Ladies also must have their hair and makeup done offsite. All in all, I can't sing the praises of Laurel Creek Manor enough! I highly recommend looking into them for your wedding day...but book soon because they book fast!

Laurel Creek is by far the most beautiful and best maintained outdoor venue location in the Seattle area. Most outdoor locations look pretty 'well-worn' by the end of the summer, but that is not the case with Laurel Creek- they take excellent care of their grounds and it shows.... Read More We had our wedding in August and were both glad we chose this venue. I planned our wedding long distance and Kirsten was easy to work with throughout the process. She provided pre-planning services over the phone (where everything will be set up, linen ordering, expert advice), two in-person walk thrus, rehearsal time the Thursday before, and answers to countless questions via email. Outside of my guests loving the venue, my photographer appreciated all the beautiful areas to take photographs (in and outdoor). The only drawback is that there isn't much flexibility for deviating from the system they have created. There is a set list of caterers you are permitted to work with (granted they have chosen a spectrum of options and our choice was very affordable) and lawn games outside of cornhole are not allowed (giant checkers, giant chess, giant connect-4). That being said, we were so satisfied with our venue choice and would highly recommend.

She even left my now-husband and I a small gift and card that we were unaware of until we started opening things up :) Very sweet touch. The bridal suite is... Read More nice and spacious with gorgeous bathrooms to get ready in, the layout of the manor makes it easy to transition throughout the day and easy for guests to navigate. My favorite part is that there are multiple spaces for ceremonies, which we needed because the weather was very finicky that day, so we had the option of on the lawn if it was perfect, on the terrace if it was iffy, and inside if it was pouring (which it was). Totally recommend!

Laurel Creek Manor was a phenomenal venue to get married at. The whole experience there was great! Kirsten and her dad Al were extremely welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole planning process. The venue is beautiful - big enough so there is enough space... Read More for folks to wander, but small enough that you don't lose anyone. The grounds are kept in great shape as well. Their tent is amazing! Not your plain white tent...this one has beautiful draped fabric and chandeliers on the inside which really adds a classy feel. All of our guests told us that this was hands down the most beautiful venue they had ever been to. They have a ton of suggestions for other vendors (cake, taxis, DJ, caterer etc) which was useful in planning. Kirsten was quick to respond with any questions I had via e-mail. They are professional and I never had any doubt that things would not work out. My only negatives, which are small, is that they don't allow you to do hair and makeup at the venue, they don't allow food and drink upstairs, and that the rental is only for 8 hours and any extra you have to pay for. 8 hours is definitely not enough for set up, the wedding and take down. We added 2 hours (paying for it) and probably could have used another hour. I think a base 10 hour rental rate would be more realistic. All in all though, this place is great. Classy, professional, well kept, and beautiful! I would recommend it to anyone getting married!


Such a beautiful venue = a beautiful wedding!

Where do we start.... We LOVE Kirsten and Laurel Creek Manor!! It was the perfect place for our wedding, which made our wedding the most perfect day!! When looking through the millions of wedding venues in Seattle, we initially were hesitant to look at Laurel Creek, since it... Read More was so far away from where we live (Shoreline). I convinced my fiancé to head down for a visit with Al (one of the owners), and we fell in love with Laurel Creek! It was everything we didn't realize we were looking for... English gardens (I was born in England) and an Italian manor house (my husband and I are planning on living in Italy for awhile) - it was almost like it was meant to be! We ended up flipping a coin between LCM and another venue we really liked - every time (against statistical odds!), it landed on the other venue, but it just didn't feel right, so we went against the coin and went with Laurel Creek! And we're so glad we did! The grounds are beautiful, Kirsten is amazing, and we had the best day ever! Kirsten and her family suffered a loss this summer, but she still was professional, friendly, and always smiling. Throughout our year of planning, she was very fast emailing back, answered all my many questions, and on our wedding day, handled everything so smoothly, I had no idea anything had gone wrong! So many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had gone to, and that the grounds were perfectly suited for us. The word "family" was mentioned many times, and when we think of Laurel Creek, that's the word that sums it all up - they have created a family business and treat their wedding parties as family members. The contract is quite strict, but for good reason - it protects the beauty of the venue. We only wish we could have extended the time frame later, as we were having so much fun! Our only issue was not towards LCM directly, but Act 3, one of their preferred caterers... We weren't happy with their service throughout the year and had some issues that arose on the day, which was the icing on the cake. The only reason we mention this on our review of LCM is as a suggestion for a larger catering selection/representation of the caterers from Laurel Creek. Act 3 is the most popular caterer at LCM and the only one who showed to the Seattle Wedding expo and the Bridal Bash, hosted by LCM, so we felt it must be the "right" choice. We were pretty disappointed by their service. We would definitely recommend Laurel Creek and Kirsten's services to other bridal parties - it is worth the money! Just maybe use a different caterer to Act 3... After our wedding, what made Laurel Creek more special in our eyes, was a lovely email from Kirsten, telling us her favorite memories from our wedding, and the final line saying "cheers again to a wonderful day, keep us in mind for family photos… our grounds are always open to you!", making us feel true appreciated as customers and as a couple!

Beautiful Venue!

Laurel Creek was the only venue we went to see in person. We had surfed the internet for days and looked at over 10 different venues. These days, people are always on the go, we are those people. If we can't find you on the internet and if your website isn't very detailed, we... Read More won't bother. But out of the websites we did visit (that had good pictures and details), Laurel Creek's was the only one that drew our eye. The pictures were so helpful and it was so gorgeous that we couldn't help but want to see it in person. From the first time we saw it, we just loved it. Didn't even want to go see anything else. I know other people have reviewed certain items that not every venue has in their contracts. My feedback on the items: 1. The inability to have hair/make-up done onsite. It makes sense. The interior of the home is beautiful and needs to be kept that way for future brides. And although not every bride and her party are slobs, some are. Just think of the hairspray build up and make-up build up you have just at your home and you think you're not being messy! 2. The requirement to use one of their preferred vendors. We actually liked this idea. The last thing you need on your wedding day is to direct the caterers on how to setup the chairs/tables/food/etc. They know exactly where supplies are, where to prep and setup, and where everything is on the property. You don't have to worry about them getting lost because they know exactly where it is! 3. The requirement to have the tent in summer months. At first I was caught off guard and the additional money for the tent made my heart skip a beat as we were trying to stay on budget. But it was perfect! Had we not had the tent, our guests would've been miserable. It was a hot August day and although there is some shade, there isn't much unless you want your guests hiding in the bushes and trees! It was a perfect setup with the tent and the beautiful chandeliers Kirsten had put in. We were very pleased with our experience with Laurel Creek and would recommend this venue to anyone getting married!

I had my wedding here on July 6, 2013, and it was in the perfect setting. The grounds are perfect, and the tent is beautiful. I am so happy to have had my wedding here. The guests loved it, and the space was exactly how I imagined my wedding to be. That said, there are just... Read More a few negatives that I would you to be aware of before choosing this wonderful place to get married. 1. The contract: -It is much more detailed and sticky than other places we looked at. For example: You cannot get your make up or hair done on site (even in the getting ready room!) -You must choose one of their four caterers. Other venues have preferred caterers but let you chose a different one with a fee. Not here. Although we loved our caterer, they four choices they have are not cheap. -No sparklers allowed -I understand their rules are for their own protection, but they are much more extreme than other venues we looked at, so read your contract! 2. We were told by Kirsten that our photobooth could go in a certain room, but when we got there that morning, Al (the father) would not allow it, so it threw off our whole set up. Not a huge deal, but it was stressful and I don't know why they would change their minds on us like that. 3. We found our photobooth vendor on our own, but apparently the owners use the photobooth company often and thought we found them through Laurel Creek. Al was upset at them for not paying them money. Anyways, this misunderstanding should have been something that was between them. However, when I arrived that morning for my wedding, the owner Al was not only yelling at the photobooth vendor, but he was being insulting and degrading. It was very unsettling and unexpected. He was polite with me, but I was thrown off on how cruel and just plain mean he was being. One of the photobooth personnel even left early because of how upset Al had made them. Again, overall my wedding was excellent, and the venue is a great place for pictures! Although there a few negatives, if I could go back I would again choose Laurel Creek Manor. Just a few things to be aware of!

If you want a venue that is naturally beautiful, you don't need to look any further. Laurel Creek Manor has a natural beauty that appeals to the masses. The manor has a stated elegance that never ages, and the landscaping is remarkable. You will save a bundle on decorations by... Read More having your wedding here. That being said, what keeps this from being a full 5 star rating is that your wedding will be outdoors, which in Washington is a bit of a gamble any time of the year. There is a beautiful tent that is a permanent fixture and that you are required to rent, which if the cost was simply worked into the total rental cost wouldn't feel nearly as 'forced'. It would also be nice if the venue was able to offer tent walls and heaters for a lower price point, given that the tent it required.
