About Blue Ribbon Cooking

The Blue Ribbon Culinary Center is a marina in the greater Seattle, Washington area where couples can host their wedding. This city venue features wrap-around windows with views of Lake Union and the Seattle skyline. Couples can find this venue just 10 minutes from the Volunteer Park Conservatory.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 200 guests can join couples on their wedding day at the Blue Ribbon Culinary Center. This venue has an outdoor wedding ceremony location on a paved patio space. This area allows couples to marry under a wedding arbor with decor of their choosing and a graceful sweeping willow tree as their backdrop. After the ceremony, couples and guests can reconvene in this marina’s ballroom space for the reception. This ballroom is unique in that it offers guests views all around with large arched wrap-around windows. There is a deck overlooking the rows and rows of docked boats. With these vessels bobbing in the background, this space can be used for photographs, cocktail hours, reception overflow and more. There is even a separate room where couples can host an indoor ceremony in the off-season, or if inclement weather prohibits an outdoor affair.

    Wow. This was a spectacularly good choice for our wedding. My wife is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, so the whole idea of getting married at a culinary center was already a win, but when you add the gorgeous setting, the all-inclusive pricing, the flexibility, the wedding planning services provided, the phenomenal job on decor (whose idea was it to put our favors, a spice rub in little tins, ON each plate at dinner? BRILLIANT, and looked amazing), and the out-of-this-world food (got loads of comments from family & friends) , this was THE place for our wedding. We had a first-class event, not cheaply but a great value for what we got. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I could go on forever about how INCREDIBLE it was to work with Blue Ribbon. They were with us every step of the way, bringing to life the most perfect, beautiful day of our lives. Their entire culinary and beverage team -- Vanessa, Adam, Melissa, the list goes on – were ABSOLUTEY ESSENTIAL to every unique and special detail of our big day.

    We know that our vision was no easy feat and the team continued to exceed our expectations by leaps and bounds. From the mouth-watering Paellas (beautifully presented in giant cast iron pots), to our HOT SAUCE bar, to our summer sangria and smoked-old fashioned specialty cocktails his & her drinks, where they actually LIT smoke boards on fire to make each drink (our guests LOVED the theater of it), to the beautiful tablescapes (there were these amazing glasses and "sunburst" plates), to the dessert station presentation...everything was perfectly executed. Blue Ribbon had an amazing creative, can-do attitude when it came to all of our extravagant ideas, AND had the ability made our ideas even BETTER with their own special touches while staying within our budget.

    Not only is the team incredibly talented and the BEST to work with, they are also just GREAT people. My husband and I are truly so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with Blue Ribbon. THANK YOU to the team for being such an incredible partner to us! We can't wait to find other reasons to see and work with you again!
