Welcome to Wisteria Gardens! Our venue sits on 10 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds amidst several unique outbuildings. It is a private setting which makes your event all yours!
The 5,000 sf event barn is elegantly rustic with string lights and chandeliers. It holds the dressing room for the bride which was remodeled in 2020, indoor men's and women's restrooms, kitchen prep and cleanup areas and store room full of decorations accessible to you. We have a sound system with microphones as well.
The silo structure is the perfect spot for beverage service and social gathering.
Our log cabin was built from timber off the property and is the "man cave" for the groom and his groomsmen to hang out in before the ceremony.
Additionally, there is a greenhouse turned into children's playhouse to entertain even the smallest guests. And barnyard chickens and Scotish Highland cows that love having company.
We can accommodate up to 200 guests, have parking on site and provide all the set up and break down of our tables and chairs as well as removal of garbage/recycling and post event clean up. Our goal is to allow you the opportunity to fully enjoy your day so we take care of the time consuming labor.
Find us just east of Anacortes, two minutes off of highway 20 heading toward Whidbey Island.
We look forward to talking with you soon about your special event! For a free consultation, please contact us. Thank you!

Accommodating, Helpful and Easy to Work With
Wisteria Gardens was a dream to work with! We started planning our wedding before the pandemic began. They were quick to respond, providing thorough responses to all my questions. Heather was very accommodating in taking time to measure tables, doors and floor space as I mapped out my wedding plan. She gave references for vendors and found names if she didn't have one for what I was needing. As the pandemic lingered on, Heather and Mike were very understanding and continued to roll with the changes. They not only were understanding but were encouraging and supportive throughout the constant struggle of navigating wedding planning through COVID-19.Sent on 01/20/2021
Location was perfect but I wasn't necessarily going for the barn feel. Heather worked with me on ways to give it a softer, more elegant feel. They have a myriad of wedding décor and are open to you using them in any creative way. Their tables, chairs and furniture are all top of line and of good quality. The outdoor portable heaters and firepit were going to be a saving grace for my large December wedding but unfortunately, I didn't get to use them since we had to cut our guest list to 30 people. The silo lounge also offered additional space for people to spread out and comfortably enjoy each others company. My husband is in LOVE with the log cabin where him and the groomsmen got ready. He said he might never come in the house if we had one on our property and that it gave just the right vibe to the guys for the day.
I have worked as a Banquet/Event Coordinator and I will say Wisteria Gardens, Heather and Mike Carlson, are doing all the right things to offer a beautiful, comfortable venue for whatever event you are planning. We are going to do a big reception once we are able to have a large group together, there isn't anywhere else we would consider to host our party! Thank you Wisteria Gardens for making our day so magical! ~Meghan and Bill Havland

We look forward to hosting your grand celebration with the time is right! God bless! Heather & Mike

Heather and Mike are amazing!
Words can't even describe how amazing Mike and Heather are! Planning a wedding during a pandemic is just another stressor you don't need, but Heather made is so much easier. We had to move venues and chose Wisteria Gardens, and they did not disappoint. It was a blessing that our venue cancelled because Wisteria Gardens made all our wedding dreams come true. All of our guests loved the location. Everyone couldn't stop talking about the gardens, barn, silo and even the fancy bathrooms. This venue has everything you need, they even have tons of décor. I highly recommend Wisteria Gardens for any weddings.Sent on 09/21/2020
Wisteria Gardens's reply:Thank you Anna for your kind and generous words. It was a pleasure to get to know you and Kyle and be able to host your beautiful wedding at Wisteria Gardens. You and so many couples have struggled in various ways this year and I am grateful for your flexibility and positive attitude which is really what made your special day the best it could be! Blessings to you and Kyle!

World's Best Wedding Venue
Wisteria Gardens saved our wedding! When our original venue closed in February of this year we were left trying to plan a whole new wedding in just a few months. We were lucky and were able to book Wisteria last minute for our wedding. From the start Heather and Mike worked with us to make our day special! We were able to set up as many meetings as we needed to plan everything out. On the day of the wedding Heather and Mike made sure everything was perfect which allowed myself, my husband and our wedding party a relaxing day. The venue itself is gorgeous with so many options for the ceremony location. They also had a long list of extras free of charge which we were able to use to cut down on costs and helped us to limit the number of vendors we needed. They seamlessly worked with the COVID restrictions and provided a safe and clean space for us and our families to celebrate! I would highly recommend this venue to every person looking to have an amazing wedding or any event you are hosting! I am still getting compliments from wedding guests on how stunning the views at the venue were and how cool the silo bar was! If you book this venue you can rest assured your day will be amazing and problem free.
The most special moment for me as a bride here was getting to meet Heath and Mike's adorable daughter who was so excited to see the pretty bride in her dress. Being able to make her day was a fun and special moment for me!Sent on 10/25/2020
Wisteria Gardens's reply:Hayleigh, you and Tanner were a pleasure to work with and we were so pleased to be able to assist you through the ups and downs of this crazy year. You both had the best attitudes and we are so happy that you enjoyed your special day! You did indeed make my daughters day and how sweet of you to allow her to "hang around" and be a little helper. We are grateful for you two and wish you a lifetime of happiness.
