I had gone to 5 different venues for my daughters wedding before I stumbled upon the Tumwater Room. At first when I saw it from the outside I wasnt impressed - but when the elevator doors opened and I saw that entry table and looked to my left and all the bright light from all the picture windows and the view... the gorgeous view!! I was hooked!! It was EXACTLY perfect!! But of course I needed my daughter to think so too. And she took ONE look and said 'Mom THIS is where I want to get married... right in that window right THERE" - pointing at the Cross window that overlooks the Falls.Sent on 09/20/2014
The Tumwater Room is deceptive. It looks smaller than it actually is. Its perfect if you have a small wedding like ours was - with just 50 people our tables filled up half the room nicely and didnt look 'empty' and left us the beautiful polished wood floor for dancing - but I have also seen the room with tables for 250 people and still room for dancing and not look crowded. My daughters wedding was at Sunset and the sun coming in through the windows made it absolutely magical... there is a big tree outside one of the windows and the Falls outside the other ... (the windows are all the way around the room ... an 'open concept' so you feel like you are out in nature) so it feels so very open - and fairy tale like. There is a nice sized parking lot which will hold quite a few cars and a perfect arched gazebo for the bride and groom to walk through, if they wish, for the 'getaway' to their limo. I would definitely recommend the Tumwater Room in a heartbeat!!

This place is so stunning yet was very affordable. The views are terrific and the staff great to work with. They provided an incredible meal through Alimenti Catering that was over the top! The staff worked hard to take care of all the guests and made this an easy and most enjoyable wedding and reception. I highly recommend this venue for any wedding couple that desires an incredible facility and a wonderful reception.Sent on 02/14/2013

I am beyond grateful for the staff and services at The Tumwater Room. Natasha (Wedding Coordinator) was stellar. She was in constant contact throughout the months and especially in those final days before the wedding to make sure everything was in place and ready for our special day. Her words of encouragement were a bonus and much needed.Sent on 08/25/2014
The set up was exactly as I wanted and the view at sunset was gorgeous. I received many compliments about the staff and location from many of my guests. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Check out their caterer, Alimenti Catering. They're awesome!

Beautiful view, great crew to with work, if you've never been to the Tumwater room you are missing out. Not only do you get the reception area but you get the museum as part of your package, its a cool thing for your guests to do during the cocktail hour. Daryl and the crew are a joy to work with and will make your day the best it can be.
