    Perfect for couples who want a BEAUTIFUL wedding (and on a budget!).

    Perfect for couples who want a BEAUTIFUL wedding (and on a budget!).

    If you want a royal wedding, HERE YOU GO! We loved hosting our special wedding day at Bastyr University Chapel! We absolutely adored the venue, and our guests did too! Thank you Emma for all your help during rehearsal and during the event to ensure all the equipment and everything was working flawlessly. We loved it and appreciate all the memories.

    We choose this chapel for its incredible beauty, all inclusivity equipment, beautiful location and budget. We wanted to spend less time on things like decor and setting up tables/av, and more time with our loved ones.

    Best pros which saved us a ton of time and funds.
    1) No decor needed - the chapel is already gorgeous, and so is the exterior if you want some photos/videos
    2) Equipment included - mics, av, stand, chairs, check-in tables, table cloths, brooms, changing rooms, table cloths, etc.
    3) Amazing floor space and acoustics: We had lots of bollywood style dancing and performances so floor space and acoustics were important!
    4) Serene - In the middle of a state park (perfect for fall, winter or summer)
    Free parking for all your guests!
    5) Someone on sight to help ensure things run smoothly (note, this is a staff member, and not a wedding coordinator or technician)
    6) Fits up to 200+ people do you don't have to compromise on the guestlist. We only had around 80 max to keep it intimate as we wanted to interact with everyone.
    7) Affordable price - We would probably not have had a wedding if venue prices were any higher! Honestly this is a great deal.

    Cons:
    - Strict no food policy, though the cafeteria is right. I wish they allowed us to at least serve cake/dessert outside within the time frame as it's a cultural tradition. We brought water bottles for our guests.

    Instead of a traditional ceremony followed by reception, we had an intimate party the day prior at our apartment lounge with food.

    Cost as of 10/2019 is $1400 for summer-Oct, and $1100 for winter months. $250 deposit. This was one of the best prices when we were shopping around. Alternatives were community centers but they required us to do all the setup and decor, which we didn't want to burden our loved ones with.

    Absolutely Recommend for any couple who wants a BEAUTIFUL wedding (and on a budget!).

    Bastyr University is a spectacularly great venue. The chapel has superb acoustics. You won't find anything quite like this in the Puget Sound region. I highly recommend.
