    Great experience with RCH

    What a hidden gem! The Rainier Chapter House was perfect for our Capitol Hill wedding reception. It's very charming - the main floor has a vintage sitting room vibe with fancy couches, rugs, and a piano, and the upstairs is basically a blank canvas with perfect white walls and beautiful hardwood floors. This allows you to really do want you want with the space! We chose to keep it pretty simple with just some floral centerpieces and it worked wonderfully.

    Peter and Karen were a joy to work with; they were excellent, quick communicators.

    As far as wedding/reception venues go in Seattle, this one was really well priced. Loved that tables/chairs/dishes/flatware were included in the price. The only things that may present slight issues are that there is no parking onsite (although lots of parking options close-by), and that the space is maxed out at 160 guests. We had 115 and I think it'd be too crowded to go much higher than that. There's also no elevator for older folks, but there's not too many stairs and they aren't very steep.

    If you're looking for an affordable, classy place to hold your wedding or other event in Seattle, be sure to check out the Rainier Chapter House. It was an absolute pleasure working with Peter who is so nice, accommodating and great at communicating - all wonderful things when you're stressing over your wedding. The Chapter House is beautiful, doesn't need much dressing up on the main floor, and includes a lot of things which will save you money: tables and chairs, linens, and pretty dining/drink ware. The top floor is spacious and a blank slate for you to decorate as you see fit; it also has a built-in bar and a stage perfect for a DJ or band. The bathrooms on the lower floor are inside a couple awesome lounge rooms (perfect for getting ready or stashing the good booze, wink wink), and there are restrooms and a bride's room on the top floor. Luckily this wasn't a problem for us, but be aware there is no elevator so if you have guests with mobility issues they will have trouble going anywhere beyond the main floor. They have a list of about 9 caterers to choose from, all of which sound awesome. We went with Pyramid Catering who were fantastic and have worked with the Chapter House many times. I don't have enough space to fawn over our experience with the Rainier Chapter House, but suffice it to say our day went perfectly and they provided a great, affordable venue for our wedding.

    We had an incredible experiencing using the Rainier Chapter House as our wedding venue! Peter manages the house currently, and he is incredibly helpful, responsive, and generous with his time.
    My husband and I planned our wedding from Australia, so we found this venue online. From pictures, it looked so beautiful but the pictures barely do it justice when you see it in person. When we viewed it for the first time, we knew within minutes we wanted to be married there.
    The upstairs is a stunning white room with so much natural light from the many windows, and with light hardwood floors. The building itself has so much character and history, which our guests loved and thought highly of!
    We found the price for the venue was absolutely reasonable as well. Wedding venues these days can be upwards of $6,000 so finding this place felt like a steal.

    The hardest part about the venue was there was no on-site parking, but with Uber these days, that was a piece of cake to communicate ahead of time.

    All our guests fell in love with the beautiful venue and keep raving about how perfect it was.
    I highly recommend the Rainier Chapter House for a wedding! The purity of the white ballroom makes for incredible photos, and gives a beautiful blank canvas for any colors to really pop.

    Thank you, Peter, and everyone at the House for making our wedding stunning and unforgettable!!
