About Dunn Gardens

Celebrate your special day at Dunn Gardens, a 1915 Olmsted-designed historic garden located just north of downtown Seattle. Our 7.5 acres of luscious Northwest native plants, meandering paths, and a peek-a-boo view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains never cease to amaze guests. This is truly the most beautiful garden in Seattle!

There are many reasons to choose Dunn Gardens for your wedding, but one of the nicest things about celebrating here is that we only do one wedding per week, allowing you and your vendors to begin set-up on Thursday with a final clean-up on Monday.

Our weddings range in size from small ceremonies of just 2, to large events of 60. We are flexible and always enjoy working with couples to create the wedding of their dreams.

Why would you choose Dunn Gardens?: Privacy, personalized service, and your choice of location for the ceremony that provides a variety of scenic and natural opportunities for photographs.

    Best Hidden Secret in Seattle

    Dunn Gardens is probably the most beautiful place you could ever get married. During COVID, our original location had cancelled on us and we were scrambling to find somewhere. After a recommendation from a friend, we were told about Dunn Gardens. We were able to get in the next day for a tour with Carolyn. Carolyn was amazing and willing to make everything work out for us. We had already dropped our wedding down to 30 people and this allowed us to do a micro-wedding on the Tennis Greens. Let me just say that you don't need flowers in the summer with everything in full bloom here. Carolyn arrived before us and helped set up and take down even though she didn't need to. She allowed us to use a getting ready space and we have so many beautiful photos and memories because of her. I highly recommend Dunn Gardens to anyone who wants a lush green wedding with the best professional and quality venue location.

    A Secret Garden In Seattle

    Carolyn was a dream to work with. She was easy to talk to and very responsive. She was also professional and friendly. As soon as we drove into Dunn Gardens it felt magical. As we walked around there were many beautiful paths that you could take to enter and exit different parts of the gardens. We went back to visit a couple times before our wedding and each time there were new flowers in bloom. One of the best parts about getting married here is you get a membership for 1 year so we will be back to visit and plan to stop by on our anniversary.
