    Choosing to have our wedding at the Washington Athletic Club was the first big wedding decision we made outside of deciding to get married in the first place, and it ended up setting the tone for the whole event by being the best decision EVER. Katie, Patrick, and the rest of the WAC staff were beyond amazing in the time leading up to and during our wedding. Katie was always quick with answering emails and getting us the information we needed. Everyone was always extremely professional and accommodating, and they worked seamlessly with all our other vendors. We always felt cared for and supported. They were even kind enough to go out of their way to order our favorite root beer so we could serve it during the event, and they custom made espresso ice cream for our sundae bar! We also had complimentary parking for our guests.

    In every interaction with the staff, it was clear that those who work at the WAC and on the catering staff love being there—most of the people there have been working there for years, and the care and joy they put into their service is truly admirable. Thanks to the team at the WAC, our day was absolutely stellar.

    The team with the Spa at the WAC also ended up doing the make-up and hair for me and my bridesmaids, and they were amazing as well. The whole team is so kind and amazing, and with every interaction, it is clear that they care deeply about the work they do and the people they are working with. We had a group of four bridesmaids and me who did an assortment of hair and make-up, and all of us had so much fun talking with the team while we were getting done up. The end result was absolutely beautiful, and our looks lasted throughout the night, despite our starting the styling at 8:30 that morning! It was wonderful to have such a talented team in-house with our venue. I can't imagine having it any other way.

    I recently had my wedding at the WAC and everything turned out beautifully. Renee took over the catering manager role while I was working with WAC, and I am thankful she did as not only did she smoothly pick up where the former catering manager left off, but she was so responsive and great to work with. She was very accommodating and professional-- I wish all of the vendors were as easy to work with as she was. The venue itself is very beautiful and classy, unlike many of the hotels in Seattle which have a PNW look to them. The guests also loved the venue and the food as well. I would recommend this venue to any bride looking for an elegant venue in downtown Seattle.
