Bell Harbor was such an amazing venue for our July 19 wedding!! The weather was perfect and we had our ceremony up on the rooftop where you could see everything! The reception was downstairs in the Harbor Room and was great! The staff was very nice and courteous! Jennifer was a huge help throughout the planning process! All of our guests told us that was one of the best venues that they had ever been to!

The Bell Harbor International Conference Center is such an amazing wedding venue! We had our wedding there in March. We got really lucky with the weather. We had always wanted our wedding to have an amazing view so we had our ceremony on the conference center’s rooftop plaza. What an amazing view! The reception room options are also amazing and have the same breathtaking views. Since half of our guests were from out of town we wanted to showcase Seattle’s beauty and Bell Harbor did just that. There are also a ton of hotel options close by so it’s a convenient location.
The Bell Harbor team is so wonderful and helpful. They really made our day amazing! Everyone was so kind and professional. Laurie, the event manager is awesome and we weren’t just another client to her, she made us feel special. She and Carissa were so accommodating throughout the planning process. Their communication was great and they were on top of everything.
The in-house catering is so delicious and there’s so many options to choose from. It may be a bit pricey, but compared to other venues who charge similarly, Bell Harbor is totally worth it. You get amazing food and beverages, outstanding service, friendly staff, and a beautiful location for your special day!

I love shooting at Bell Harbor and have shot many weddings there. The staff has always been so helpful and nice. The rooftop area is awesome for photos, especially later in the day and you can't beat the view amenity of the city and water. This is a great venue for photographers because there's so many little spaces to get a nice photo of the wedding couple and party. I'm looking forward to getting out there again sometime soon!
We have photographed many weddings at Bell Harbor, and highly recommend checking them out. They have many options for ceremony and reception... outside is a 360 degree roof-top view on the Seattle waterfront, and inside includes a ground floor large room with walls of windows facing Elliott Bay and a former maritime museum multi-room exhibit. The event staff and coordinators have been on-the-ball, helpful and pleasant to work with (for vendors and couples/families/guests), and we always look forward to a wedding at Bell Harbor.
