A beautiful Wedding in Tacoma

West of the Waterway was an absolutely perfect venue for our wedding reception. The inside is gorgeous and offers an intimate yet spacious area. The outdoor balcony is a perfect place for happy hour and an escape for those who have been partying too hard. The view from the venue is amazing and the amenities they provide like high chairs, their wood tables, the rounds, and guest chairs were all in great condition. Keisha the Venue manager is amazing to work with and her experience with the venue helped curate the perfect layout. She was extremely accommodating and wanted to help us make the day perfect, and honestly with an amazing venue like this one that was pretty easy.

Beautiful venue with a waterfront view

West of the Waterway is a beautiful modern-looking venue with a waterfront view. We had our wedding reception there with 100 guests and the space felt so spacious and we loved the atmosphere. The patio is included in the rental price and we used it for cocktail hour and bubble send off! Keisha as the manager was helpful in all communications. We hired Gallucci’s for catering, got 10% off because it’s the same owner, and got to work with Keisha as representative from Gallucci’s too. It was much easier to communicate with just one person for both venue & catering. Highly recommend both West of the Waterway and Gallucci’s to anyone!

Amazing Amazing Amazing!!

I cannot sing enough praises for this place! Not only is it a GORGEOUS venue, but Keisha and Adrielle are amazing! They were so flexible and inventive with their accommodations to ever-changing restriction during this COVID19 pandemic! We had to switch up our wedding day from ceremony and reception for up to 150, to ceremony and reception for less than 100, to only ceremony with bridal party and parents (under 30). They made sure we could still have our day without violating any of these nee restrictions! We will definitely be back for our next major celebration!
