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!

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.Sent on 05/10/2019
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.

Elegant Farm Wedding
A brand new, Orenda Winery is a hidden gem of the Snoqualmie Valley. The simple, yet elegant ambiance and inviting warmth of Orenda makes it the ideal choice for memorable events. We got married in August 2018, and are still receiving complements on our wedding. Orenda staff's attention to detail is evident in everything from the mismatched china place settings to the beautiful antique décor. Our ceremony took place in the gardens around the fountain, with the reception in the event center and dancing outside. Guests thoroughly enjoyed the wine, lawn games and music. Orenda is a gorgeous venue, but after everything was covered in lights and garland, it was absolutely stunning. We would highly recommend the honey wedding favors. They came custom labeled in vintage style glass bottles as part of a beautiful display. We are keeping a bottle of honey along with the wine to enjoy on our first anniversary. Everyone at Orenda is supportive, friendly, and accommodating. We look forward to visiting again during their grand opening this June and first official wine release!Sent on 04/04/2019
