Beautiful haven even in the rain!

We just recently got married out at Black Diamond Gardens on 9/19/21. I had been to a friend’s wedding out there a few years prior and I absolutely fell in love with the place! My favorite perk is probably the goats! Butter, Romeo and Lindsay definitely give a fun vibe to the grounds and let’s not forget little Annie, the garden dog. My band was the entertainment for the evening and we were looking forward to playing outside on the cocktail hour stage but the weather had something different in mind. Deidre really worked with us to move everything inside to the greenhouse to activate Plan B. I wasn’t sure how the sound was going to be inside but I was very happy with the results. She has a great house sound system for musical entertainment. Everything went swimmingly and we are so very happy we were able celebrate such a monumental moment in our lives out at BGD. It’s absolutely beautiful even if you have to spend it indoors! I definitely recommend considering this lovely haven for your special day!

Beautiful Venue & Amazing Staff!

My husband and I got married at Black Diamond Gardens exactly one month ago today! I first discovered BDG listed in Seattle Bride Magazine. We immediately fell in love with the venue after watching a video on their website and seeing photos online, so we scheduled a tour with owner Deidre for that same week. We initially weren’t planning on having a Sunday wedding, but there was only one date still open for September 2019 (10 months away at the time) and it was slightly cheaper than the Friday/Saturday rate. There was no pressure at all from Deidre, but we ended up signing and paying a deposit that same day because we knew we had found the perfect place.

I remember how overwhelming it was to search for and compare wedding venues, so I listed our “review” in bullet points below in hopes that this will be easier to read for those of you looking for specific information. Best of luck to anyone wedding planning!

|| VENUE ||
- Great venue!
- Various areas for ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner program
- Beautiful outdoor garden spaces and indoor greenhouse reception area
- Needs little to no additional decoration
- Gazebo (lights up at night)
- Colorful foliage
- Long wooden dock and pond, bride & groom can take photos in small boat
- Plenty of areas for photoshoots, all within a short walking distance (it was a huge plus considering our ceremony ran way longer than anticipated, reducing our photo time)
- I visited six times before my wedding; November 2018, December, twice in May 2019, twice in July. The venue looked a little different with every visit as the foliage changed colors with the seasons and Deidre continually adds flowers and plants to revamp an already beautiful venue into an even more enchanting place.

|| STAFF & COMMUNICATION ||
- Very flexible and accommodating whenever we requested to visit (first time tour, with our vendors, with our parents, etc.)
- Use of online event management tool to keep track of venue-related action items and deadlines so you’re always on the same page with venue staff
- Easy to contact and quick to respond (call, text, email)

|| PRICE & VALUE ||
- Great value for your $$
- Deidre puts people first, before profit
- Very transparent with contract terms and rates (no hidden fees)
- The venue staff set up all tables and chairs per your approved -floor plan, so when your day of coordinator and vendors arrive, the basics are already taken care of and any additional decorations can be put up

|| VENDORS ||
- Freedom to choose most of our own vendors (only our bartender had to be chosen from their list)
- For safety and to protect the beautiful gardens, you are required to hire childcare from their pre-approved nanny list if you will have 6 or more children under the age of 13 present. We chose to have a “no kids” wedding and it was great! All of our guests loved having a “date night” with their partners. Many told us during dinner that this was their first “night out” without their child(ren) in years!

|| RENTALS ||
- Bridal Cottage, “Groom’s Cave”, tables, chairs, sound system, and more included with venue fees
- The venue offers a wide range of optional items you can rent (lawn games, signage, decorations, etc.). We rented white china sets from BDG along with a large green foliage backdrop with white “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs for our photo booth.

|| GUEST EXPERIENCE ||
- Quiet and peaceful (away from the city)
Ample parking to accommodate our 200+ guests
- Clean restrooms, ADA accessible
- Animals (goats, rabbits, doves)
- Fire pit
- Plug-in for outdoor stage speaker system
- High quality speaker system in greenhouse
- Plenty of seating inside greenhouse for 220 people, still had plenty of space open for large dance floor

Thank you Deidre, Breanna, and the BDG staff for providing us a beautiful garden and wonderful customer service for our special day! We’ll be recommending this venue to everyone we know for years to come!

Amazing, amazing, & amazing

My husband and I got married here on 9/8! The venue is stunning, even with minimal decorations. Deidre was the perfect host, responded to all our questions in a timely manner, and made our wedding experience a lot less stressful. Our guests raved about how beautiful the garden & greenhouse were. Thank you!!

Great venue with a great owner. Secluded and private while at the same time easily accessible guests and vendors. Can accommodate large guest counts both inside and outside. A private pond, dock, meadows, farm animals and more give you plenty of options for fun and unique videography and photography on site as well.
