I can't thank the staff at Jewel hospitality enough for putting together the most beautiful wedding ever! Everything went so perfectly and was everything I hoped it would be and more. I worked mainly with Nicole Jones and Kara Agustin, and I was blown away by how helpful they were! Both SO amazing to work with and I am so thankful for how easy they made this whole process. It was incredible and turned out just like a dream. Everything ran so smooth and flawlessley! If I visualized something they brought it to life. A perfect day at the perfect place! Not to mention the food through their catering company was delicious! I can't tell you how many people came up throughout the night complimenting it. We had 400 people attend our wedding, but not once did I feel like it was over crowded or stressful! The staff made transitions and opened up spaces for everyone to have fun and dance all night long! I could not be happier with my expirence and encourage anyone looking for a stress free wedding to plan your big day through Jewel Hospitality at the Ballard Bay Club!Sent on 10/12/2016

I was married in October 2015 at the Ballard Bay Club, and it could not have been more perfect! We had a fairly tight budget, and I thought there was no way we'd be able to afford a water front property, so we were over the moon when we found the Ballard Bay Club. It's located right on Puget Sound.... we booked the north room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with a absolutely gorgeous view of the sound. The room was the perfect size for our wedding (75 guests). We used the single room for both the ceremony and the reception. The room had a section by the windows where we had the ceremony, and was later turned into the dance floor, and a raised platform separated by a low wall where all the tables were set up for dinner. The staff was amazing to work with! We met with them a couple of times to go over what we wanted, and on the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything! They handled set up and tear down of the tables, chairs, etc. and provided everything, including linens, dishes, glassware, etc. as well as the bartenders and servers! Since Jewel Hospitality provides the catering as well as the venue, there was no coordination required, and they went above and beyond - including sending out a server with appetizers during the pictures to make sure we got some. The only "mistake" was that the chef accidentally made an additional entree that we hadn't ordered, so they put it out on the buffet anyway for free. Also, the food was AMAZING. I have been to a lot of weddings where the food (especially buffet food) is mediocre or just plain terrible, but everything was excellent. I would definitely recommend!Sent on 10/28/2015

We just had our wedding at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club on Sunday June 23, 2013 and it was absolutely AMAZING! Tasia was our coordinator and she was so awesome! She was so prompt in getting back to me and very very helpful. When we saw this place we fell in love with it the views are breath taking! We found out it was a little out of our price range and they worked with us the entire time to make our dream wedding come true! Tasia was very professional and helpful in everything she did. She was always going above and beyond what she needed to.The night of the wedding they were even more amazing doing things they didn't even need to do to help to night go so smoothly! The food was AMAZING and the rooms were decorated better than I could have imagined! I highly recommend Shilshole Bay Beach Club and Appulent Catering for your wedding it will be a night you truly will never forget! Thank you Tasia for everything you did for us!Sent on 07/02/2013
