I got married @ The Woodmark last weekend and if I could do it a billion times over again, I'd choose The Woodmark Hotel as my venue EVERY time. We chose The Woodmark for many reasons. A few being, it is nautical, but not CHEESY or THEME feeling. My husband and I were both collegiate rowers, so we felt like a somewhat nautical venue was fitting. The Woodmark is also extremely elegant and romantic, something I was really looking for too. It is also a HOTEL so our guests could just walk right up to their rooms after the reception. Can't get easier than that! And most important, Mallory was amazing to work with. She always responded to my e-mails within the same day or next day, made time to meet with my mom & I, picked up the phone, and treated my mom & I with true respect and a caring attitude. Even though she had many clients over the 14 months we worked with her, she treated us like her only one the entire time with how attentive she was. The bar and food situation went off without a hitch. ALL my guests told me the food tasted amazing, and I was so pleased the staff got them out to our 140 guests in a timely manner. The layout of getting married at the Woodmark made me feel extra special. Being right on the lake made for some amazing photos, and having our sparkler send off up the huge stairs outside by the lobby was spectacular. The canopy was the perfect ceremony/dinner location rain or shine (which it is important to have a plan for rain, being in Seattle!) and the library is my favorite room in the whole hotel, so having cocktail hour in there (because of the recent rain) was beautiful! Mallory and her assistant even put ribbons on 140 chocolate boxes for us, something I did not expect her to do! She truly does care about each and every one of her clients, and I would without a doubt, recommend Mallory and The Woodmark as a wedding venue to everyone.

The Woodmark Hotel wishes you nothing but the best in this new chapter in your lives! Never hesitate to reach out if you need anything else in the future.

If you want a stunning waterfront wedding, then there is no setting more perfect than The Woodmark. My husband & I knew this was our dream wedding venue from the moment we stepped onto the property. The elegant al fresco venue is outdone only by the impeccable staff & catering provided by The Woodmark. Mallory Knapp, our wedding coordinator, was superb & an absolute joy to work with. She was so responsive & helped us execute our perfect day. We could't have done it without her! The food, beverage & dinner service was top of the line and our guests still compliment the high-quality service. We are so lucky that we were able to have our wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in Washington State - we highly recommend The Woodmark to anyone who is looking for the perfect venue to create a timeless, elegant and unforgettable wedding.
Thank you for your amazing and kind words Alaina! And thank your for choosing the Woodmark Hotel to host your incredibly beautiful wedding! You were a genuinely wonderful couple to work with over the year and a half and we wish you all the best in this next chapter in your lives! Please feel free to reach out to us if you ever need anything in the future.

My groom and I had to push up our wedding date up and decided make it a SUPRISE wedding as well. Our wedding coordinator and staff at the Woodmark not only made us feel heard and supported , they are the reason our wedding was such a beautiful success! The foods venue and services are all high quality and worth the money! We have nothing short of " best wedding ever!" And " I had an amazing time" compliments from our guests. The venders we used , reccomonded by the Woodmark , were also just as amazing ! THANK YOU WOODMARK HOTEL for not only making our special ( and sometime stressful )day an inspiring experience for us and our family and friends. Brides to be , if you can have a wedding at the Woodmark ...DO IT!
The Woodmark provides OUTSTANDING service, food and a gorgeous venue! A wonderful place for an event to remember. All of our guests were impressed with the venue, the food, and the responsiveness of the staff - professional all the way, but fun too!
The Woodmark hotel is AMAZING. We have gone to this hotel for years and upon planing our wedding, we knew that this would be our venue. The hotel itself is stunning as it is set on the lake and is so peaceful and relaxing upon arrival. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and went beyond our expectations, welcoming a large group from out of town who stayed at the hotel over the weekend. The wedding co-ordinator Elisa was so fabulous and very well organized, making the lead up to the wedding, easy and stress free. She was very sweet and was wonderful during planning stages and on the day itself, making sure that everything ran smoothly and without issue. We could not be happier with our venue selection and will continue to go to this hotel for years!
Fabulous venue! Loved the food and the customer service was great while planning. On the day they really came through and everything was perfect.
Faith Johnston was absolutely wonderful!! Very professional and curteous, while answering all questions promptly and providing suggestions as needed. She anticipated our needs and provided options to create a very memorable wedding.
We had our ceremony, reception & catering provided by the Woodmark as well as our first married night together here. The staff is amazing (I recommend working with Sharon!) and they make you feel like royalty the entire time you're with them. The food is to die for and they're very flexible on the menu they provide you. They allowed us to have holiday wreaths hung up and worked with us on booking rooms for guests as well as managing the parking lot. This is the most gorgeous hotel in the North West my husband and I plan to celebrate each anniversary here until they boot us!
I cannot say enough good things about the Woodmark or Mallory Knapp. We just had our wedding there July 18, 2015. Here are the highlights: 1) WOODMARK STAFF/MALLORY KNAPP: Mallory is professional, accommodating, and has probably the best communication skills I have encountered while planning our wedding. And more than anything, she is dependable and trustworthy, which was very important to us. I was very involved in the wedding planning process and particular about details-and Mallory was receptive to my requests and made sure every detail was exactly how I wanted it. Not just Mallory though-every member of the Woodmark staff we worked with went above and beyond to ensure our event was perfect; 2) FOOD-We served salmon and filet of beef-our guests raved about the food, especially the beef. Honestly it was the best steak I ever had-cooked to perfection which is impressive for 170 guests. Appetizers were fabulous too. 3) DRINKS-Mallory and catering staff worked with us to create custom signature cocktails that fit our budget. And they let us serve a keg of Manny's, our favorite beer; 4) LOCATION-can't be beat. No words necessary-see it yourself; 5) HOTEL-Having a hotel at your venue is invaluable in terms of convenience-both for your wedding party and your guests. We reserved discounted rooms for our guests in a block reservation, which I highly recommend. 6) VALUE-the Woodmark is pricey but you get what you pay for. You will not get this view, service, food and drink quality, and overall lakeside vibe for less anywhere. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose the Woodmark again in a heartbeat and recommend this venue to all brides-to-be!

Mallory was amazing! She would answer any question we had no matter how large or small and really made sure all of the details were reviewed and discussed so that her catering staff would be prepared. Speaking of, the catering staff and the hotel staff was incredible. Many guests told us how friendly and helpful the staff was which was incredibly important to us as we had many out of town guests. Would absolutely recommend the Woodmark for a wedding ceremony and reception. Try to work with Mallory because she goes above and beyond and is the best!
Beautiful and elegant place for our wedding reception.
The Woodmark provided an absolutely incredible backdrop for our wedding. It was picture-perfect, and a month later, we are still hearing from friends and family about how well the day went. The food was also incredible, albeit a little expensive, and Mallory was terrific to work with. Whenever we had a question in the months leading up tot he wedding--and we had many, as you likely will--she was quick to respond with information or suggestions. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better wedding day.
Thank you for reviewing The Woodmark Hotel; we love hearing that you had an incredible experience for your wedding! It was a pleasure to be included in your big day. We wish you the very best in your continued future together!

Beautiful place to get married! The food was fantastic, and service was great. The only complaint I had was that I would make a request and would not hear back from the catering manager until I emailed a second time and asked if she received my first email. Even then the response was a short one word answer which I felt since I was paying so much for the venue, was unprofessional. But the Woodmark is a wedding machine, they definitely know what they are doing and everything went off without a hitch! They force you to hire a professional day-of coordinator, which at first I didn't like, but in hint sight, I'm so glad I did. She was worth the extra money we paid to have her!
The Woodmark is not an inexpensive option, but they definitely deliver. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly for each guest (100 in total). They were generally responsive, and didnt try to take advantage of any "loop holes" in their contract. At the end of our event, we even got back more than $1000 in over estimated alcohol costs... something they could have very easily "forgotten" to give back.
Overall, our wedding couldnt have gone any better. Between the Woodmark, Fena Flowers, and our day-of-coordinator, everything came together beautifully.
Upon first meeting with our coordinator, we felt that overt the top niceness, and "we will do anything for you" attitude was completely genuine but boy was I wrong. Woodmark Hotel made my wedding planning experience extremely difficult. I'm not going talk about every issue but over and over again, their lack of service not only made me cry but it also gave me a great deal of anxiety . In the planning process we had so many problems in communication with our catering coordinator. It would take days (5-9) sometimes even longer before we heard back on questions brought to the table, and even when we finally got a response most of the time it was a rude 2-3 word response. Because of their continued lack of responsiveness, lack of professionalism, and very evident lack of caring, I feel a great disregard towards the catering manager and the Woodmark Hotel in general. My husband and I devastated by the amount of money we have spent throughout the process. All for the emotional pain and stress takes a toll not only you but also your family. No bride deserves that.
We are thankful you have taken the time to provide us your input related to your wedding. However, we are troubled as this is not the usual fine service and focus our dedicated team strives for.
