Port Gamble is a privately owned 120 acre National Historic Landmak on the shores of Hood Canal. A vibrant town with charming turn-of-the-century buildings, a picturesque historic church and New England style homes on maple tree-lined streets, the serene and wooded surroundings and stunning waterfront view offer a unique opportunity for the perfect wedding and reception.

St. Paul's church was built in 1879 and modeled after a church in East Machias, Maine. St. Paul's Church offers beautiful indoor ceremonies as well as indoor/outdoor patio receptions for up to 150 guests. A newly remodeled reception area spills out onto a tented terrace overlooking Gamble Bay.

The Hood Canal Vista Pavilion and adjacent tented outdoor Pavilion provide a wonderful indoor/outdoor wedding event, perfect for unpredictable Northwest weather. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the views of Hood Canal are spectacular. The Hood Canal Vista Pavilion features a stunning rock fireplace, french doors and huge windows to take advantage of the water and sloping lawn views, accommodating 150 guests. The outdoor tented terrace accomodates receptions up to 180 guests. Tables and chairs are provided, set up and broken down by our staff.

    Beautiful and affordable venue!

    A huge THANK YOU to the wonderful staff at Port Gamble Weddings & Events!!! The venue is GORGEOUS and affordable. It does get booked frequently because of this, so reserve ASAP. We booked the Church and had a tent outside. It was absolutely charming. Gorgeous photographs. Their staff was extremely helpful and patient (I emailed about a bazillion times and asked a bunch of questions). They do have quite a few rules, so be sure to check-in with them before you buy/order something -- they do their BEST to accommodate though :-) Mr Eric is very sweet and friendly!! Also heads up, their aisle is pretty small, but you can still fit down it ;-) Would absolutely recommend to couples looking to tie the knot!

    Perfect Winter Wedding

    Port Gamble Weddings was the perfect place for us to host our wedding. Throughout the entire process, the entire team at this venue was very responsive and went out of their way to make sure our event was a success. During our wedding weekend, they were readily available to help us with last minute changes. Even with a large Christmas event going on at the same time as our wedding, we experienced no issues. I would recommend them to everyone looking to get married in this area. It would be hard to beat the value they offer to couples.

    Port Gamble Weddings's reply:

    Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong,
    Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience. That's what we strive for! We hope you'll stop in and say hello next time you visit Port Gamble!

    Sincerely,
    Port Gamble Weddings & Events Team

    Hallmark Level Wedding Magic

    My husband and I found Port Gamble on a roadtrip on day. It is a beautiful little town very similar to a hallmark movie. The price was reasonable, the team was extremely helpful and flexible, and everything went as smoothly as possible. Eric was in contact with us since the day we saw the venue and was there during our rehearsal, working with all of our other vendors and helping guide us. The venue has a preferred vendor list which we found extremely helpful. I highly, highly suggest this venue and the people associated.

    Port Gamble Weddings's reply:

    We are truly thankful for your kind words! It was our honor to help with your special day in Port Gamble. We wish you the very best in your new life journey!
