About Orenda Winery

Orenda is a 3.5-acre operating winery and historic farm estate. The grounds are enclosed in white washed walls covered with English Ivy providing peaceful privacy. Inside the wrought iron gate, the driveway winds through mature trees, flower gardens, and fountain pond.

Located between Fall City and Carnation off highway 203, Orenda Winery is just 45 minutes from Seattle and 25 minutes from Bellevue and Redmond, and 15 minutes from Issaquah.

Ceremonies are commonly held amongst flower beds surrounding the fountain pond in the center of the property. After the exchange of vows, the specious grounds provide space to mingle for cocktail hour before moving to the newly renovated barn event center perfect for indoor receptions. Three sets of French doors open out to a large patio area where tables can be set for overflow seating or as a cocktail hour location. Backing up to event center is our small vineyard and space for a tent (up to 20x50 ft), providing additional seating and a perfect space to dance!

    DeMeo-Owen Wedding

    When searching for the perfect wedding venue, we considered a lot of places around the beautiful state of Washington, until we landed on exactly the right spot.

    The Orenda Winery, located in Carnation, in the Snoqualmie Valley, is a family owned and operated business that will always have a special place in our hearts. With the help of the owner, Samantha Kent, who provided the venue, and the thoughtful teamwork of the Watanabe family, Tressa- the caterer, Dawn-the florist, Sarah-the wedding coordinator, and Hunter and Leia- the bartenders, we were able host our eldest daughter’s wedding here. The grounds are absolutely stunning and together we were able to create a truly unforgettable evening. The barrel room provided a magical and intimate setting for a vintage, winter wedding that awed our family and guests.

    Thank you all, for the effort you put in. The antique furnishings and china dinnerware really helped to set the mood and went so well with the rustic woodwork throughout the banquet room and the authentic wine barrels.

    The evening before the wedding, the bride and bridesmaids stayed together in the beautifully decorated guest house which served as the perfect location for the hair-makeup-and dress preparations. In the morning, Tressa prepared a delicious breakfast a fruit and baked goods to start the festivities.

    Throughout the day, our guests raved about the fantastic, award-winning wine and the beautiful scenery.

    We really cannot say enough good things about the Orenda Winery. From our family to yours, thank you so much.

    Could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding

    Mine and my now Husband’s wedding was this past Saturday, and I am so glad we found Orenda- it’s truly a hidden gem! As soon as my then-fiancee and I toured the venue, we knew it was the one. Samantha, the owner, was amazing to us. She and her staff were extremely accommodating and communicative even as our vision of what we wanted changed during the planning process. We had the option of using them just as a venue, or do the full-service package. We went with full-service (everything from catering to hair and makeup to pianist to DJ to officiant etc) which made our lives so much easier, and we loved all of our vendors who were equally great to work with. Tressa, one of the coordinators and also the caterer with Orenda, did an incredible job organizing everything while Samantha was on holiday vacation, and the food was delicious! Sarah, another coordinator, executed everything perfectly day-of. My bridesmaids and I stayed in the guest house the night before the wedding, and the entire bridal party used it to get ready day of (bride and bridesmaids upstairs, groom and groomsmen downstairs). The guest house was comfortable and spacious with a vintage-historical vibe (much like the venue as a whole) which was perfect for us. Everything was clean and decorated beautifully. Because we chose a winter wedding, they even converted the wine cellar into a beautiful procession area so we could be inside. The reception area was also gorgeous and easily accessible. And did I mention that as a winery, the wine was delicious? One of their red wines even won an award for best red in the PNW last year. So many of our guests asked how we found Orenda because while the buildings are historic and the winery has been functional for a while, it is a newer wedding venue when Samantha and her husband bought it just last year. I never hesitated about it being a newer venue because as soon as I met Samantha I knew she was a professional and we were in good hands. Everyone commented on how beautiful and charming everything was, and how we picked a perfect place. I agree! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day and thanks to Orenda and staff we will have those memories to cherish forever. I would highly recommend Orenda to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    Charming and Memorable Historic Property

    Orenda Winery/Event Center is a historic property in Carnation – about 40 minutes east of Seattle. There are tall trees, beautiful flower and vegetable gardens, a charming farmhouse and guest house, an outdoor ceremony area with pond and an event center. The guest house was used for bridal party to get ready – bridal party on top floor which has a separate door to outdoors and groomsmen on lower floor. My daughter and I decided to rent Orenda’s mismatched antique china and silverware and it was truly lovely and classic. This property is unique and memorable – the opposite of wedding receptions held in hotel ballrooms.

    We set up lawn games and had a local band perform. It should be noted that Orenda is strict about stopping music at 10 p.m. due to noise ordinances. (We would have danced all night if allowed to go on.) One other note is that there are honey bees on the property but there is a fence around the bee yard. We liked this and actually gave away small Orenda honey jars as a wedding favor.

    From the first time we visited the property, we knew is was the place for my daughter’s wedding. The Orenda team was both professional and flexible.
