The Monte Cristo Ballroom was the perfect venue for my wedding. My husband and I had to plan the whole thing in only 6 weeks due to some family health issues but the Monte Cristo was very flexible and helped us get everything rolling. The venue itself was beautiful and the set up crew was very helpful. The food was incredibly tasty--everyone loved the way it was presented, the large portions, and especially the flavor. The bar food buffet and the bridal party buffet was wonderful and great for all of the party and close family because there wasn't any time to eat before the ceremony. I docked them a star on professionalism because 2 weeks before the wedding, the person I was working with was let go. That said, Debra, the woman that was assigned to my event afterward was wonderful and very good at contacting me and getting back to me with answers. All in all, the Monte Cristo was a fantastic investment. I am the first of my friends to get married and the Monte Cristo helped me set a very high bar.Sent on 03/15/2012

An all inclusive event minus photography, floral, and cake. They even have their own bridal shop
Although this venue may not be the one for us, I highly recommend visiting it and seeing if its the one for you. I loved everything they had to offer and at 100 people, I would say that its a steal of a deal. Anything over and your total will be adding up quickly. But the staff was great and I loved speaking with the chef and the tasting was delicious so I would definitely put this place on your checklist.Sent on 02/07/2019

Best decision of our lives!
My husband and I got married on 12.28.19 and choosing The Monte Christo Ballroom was the best decision of our lives! I work in the wedding industry as a wedding coordinator in Arizona, and had very high expectations for our wedding.Sent on 01/25/2019
Hands down-- this is the classiest, place to have a wedding and the staff members are a dream to work with! We are still receiving comments on how gorgeous the venue was, how amazing the staff members were and how the whole night was perfect! Many said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!
First, I can not say enough about our Coordinators Amy and Sarah! They were absolutely amazing to work with, they were on top of everything from day one, very responsive, and kept us updated throughout the process, and everything ran better that I could have expected on the day of. They made us, our family and friends feel at ease throughout our wedding day, checking on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. They are professional and make the wedding planning process so fun (we laughed a lot during our planning meeting!) They brought mimosas, fixed my veil and solved any problems that arose so I did not have to! I truly felt like they became a part of our family.
Sarah also helped me find my DREAM wedding dress and veil at their store!
Eric, our DJ was INCREDIBLE. He played the classiest music while guests arrived, through the ceremony, reception and kept the party going! Our guests didn't want to leave the dance floor!
The food was amazing and the bartenders did a fabulous job! Highest of compliments to the chef and servers!
Our wedding day experience went above and beyond our expectations and we have Amy, Sarah, Eric and the Monte Cristo Ballroom staff to thank - we are forever thankful and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing venue!
The Monte Cristo ballroom is the type of venue Washington state has been needing for a long time. It is elegant, historical, regal and grand. If you want to feel like royalty on your wedding day look no further. This venue is so beautiful you barely need to decorate. It has high ceilings, grand windows, gorgeous exterior architecture. They also take care of every aspect of your wedding for you, white glove service, lighting, food. The food is what really takes it to the next level. This is not typical catered wedding food. Meals at the Monet Cristo are the same level you would expect from a 5 star award winning restaurant. As photographers we have eaten at many venues and nothing has stayed on our minds like the meal we had at the Monte Cristo. Definitely check this place out !
I HIGHLY Recommend Monte Cristo Ballroom. Your event is not complete without them. They are fun to work with (We work VERY well with each other, which is VERY important, that all your wedding services work well with each other), they offer a HIGH quality service, are leaders in their industry, are very experienced & talented, are very trustworthy, help to relieve any stress you may have on your wedding day, have MANY rave reviews of happy clients, are polite, organized, go the extra mile, treat you with respect . . . I could go On & On. Bottom Line: If you hire them, you will have NO Regrets, NO Frustrations, NO Disappointments. Blessings! (Scott "DJ Scott" Fijolek - 360-367-6863) AskDJScott.com
