    Ray's was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding! It was gorgeous and the staff was amazing to work with. Paula was our coordinator and she made our wedding day easy and super fun!

    The team at Ray's is OUTSTANDING. We chose the venue because it's where my now husband and I had our first date - and also because the pricing couldn't be beat for what we wanted. Ray's provided a no-fuss experience for us. They took care of everything - from flowers and the gorgeous view, first-class food and drink, to attentive and fun servers, plus a straight-shooting day-of coordinator. Ray's went above and beyond!

    Arranging the venue was easy and straightforward. The open house at the beginning of the season allowed us to try a number of different dishes, meet different vendors, and ask questions -- while not having someone hovering over our shoulders so that we could be honest about what we liked and didn't. Amanda, our contact and day-of coordinator, was incredibly responsive and happy to answer our questions along the way. She was also very patient during our walk-through and kept everything organized so that we knew what to expect.

    The day of the wedding Amanda and Kenzee, the server lead/banquet captain, were SO great. My whole family arrived before our scheduled time to set up. The entire team was super accommodating and worked around the hoard of people. My dad even made an observation about some bird excrement on the deck, not thinking anything of it, but Kenzee was out there a minute later getting it cleaned up. Talk about service - what a champ!

    Everything came together for an unforgettable day. People talked about how superb the food was, commented on the great service, and loved the view and setting. Couldn't be happier with our choice. Thanks, Amanda, Kenzee and team at Ray's - you rock!

    Our wedding ceremony and reception were both perfect thanks to the great staff and location at Ray's!

    We had to plan the wedding long distance since we live out of state, but my husband's family lives in the Seattle area. I was worried about having to plan everything from so far away, but everything worked out great! Our day was flawless and we will have happy memories for the rest of our lives because of it.

    Andrea is so kind and such a great person to have on my side while planning the wedding. From the very beginning to the end she was always quick to reply and never once seemed irritated or annoyed at my questions (and I had a lot of them). Phyllis filled in when Andrea was out and she was also very responsive and kind. I cannot thank Andrea and her team at Ray’s for all of the help and great service they provided us on our special day.

    We had a small ceremony (20 people) and the space was perfect for a wedding our size. Everyone was raving out how great the food was that night and how perfect the setting is for a wedding. A seal even popped his head up during our reception, which my family from Minnesota really enjoyed seeing. We had perfect weather and a gorgeous sunset.

    I cannot recommend Ray’s enough! Fantastic service, food, and location for a reasonable price!
