Spectacular venue inside and out!
On top of a spectacular view and backdrop for the ceremony, the building itself is beautiful. There are moments inside as well as outside that provide great pictures either in a cozy nook or against an industrial concrete wall with light casting down from the skylights above. ESB has a private room for getting ready in: equipped with table, chairs, and a large mirror. ESB provides ceremony chairs that are set up to your layout, that do not require you to put away when your are done. The restrooms in the lobby are very nice. All in all, I highly recommend this venue for the exterior and interior views as well as the amenities that are provided.Sent on 06/28/2019

This was the absolute best place for our wedding. The staff was so helpful and accommodating! On a beautiful summer day, it was lovely to have tables outside and inside, for our guests to comfortably socialize and be able to enjoy the incredible view. It was the most perfect day, and this venue and staff helped to make it so!Sent on 09/11/2018

I cannot stress enough how wonderful it was to rent the ESB from 9 AM to midnight on my wedding day. Being able to get there early set up decorations and actually have time to eat lunch and get ready and take pictures before the ceremony was amazing, and so easy. The staff that is there to help you through the day, by setting up chairs and making sure everything is going well. They were very professional and very sweet people. I had the most perfect wedding I could ever possibly imagine, and it was in part to being able to have the ceremony outside while having the reception inside and outside. The flow of the space is perfect. Oh by the way it is so cost efficient! Literally the best deal you will ever find with such an amazing view. I cannot stress enough how beautiful it is!Sent on 07/25/2018

We had our daughter's wedding reception at the Environmental Services Building (ESB) overlooking the Puget Sound. We were able to come early in the morning with a helper crew to set up and there was plenty of parking for guests. Since it was a beautiful sunny (but not too hot) day on July 31st, 2016, we had planned for dining inside as well as outside, and our DJ and the Cash Bar attendant were outside under the covered courtyard where we had dancing later. The DJ could easily move inside and out utilizing the sliding glass door which remained open to the lovely view. Guests could mingle, go into the lobby for food, restrooms, and in the dining area as well as outside. There was plenty of room for the bridal party to get dressed in "ladies" and "gentlemen" rooms off of the lobby, prior to heading to the church for the wedding and then back again for the reception. Everything went smoothly and we were so happy to have the event there. It was beautiful, the guests loved it, our daughter loved it, our son-in-law loved it, and we will definitely recommend the ESB!Sent on 08/17/2016

I do not have one bad thing to say about the environmental services building! I loved my wedding venue.Sent on 08/29/2015
Tip: Double Check the kitchen he day of the wedding, so you do not run out of dishes.
Kelly · Married on 08/14/2015
This venue was awesome! Great view and close to the water. Our wedding was the rainiest day of summer 2015 (August 14). The original plan was to have the reception outside on the lawn but because of the rain it had to be moved inside. They worked with us to set up the chairs for the ceremony how we liked, no questions asked. It was great! We had an amazing wedding day! Thank you again!! The only downside to it was you have to use their bartender and the selection of wines they provide was Merlot and Chardonnay of the bars choosing, I would have liked to choose the wine for the reception.Sent on 08/28/2015

My fiancé and I spent months looking for the perfect venue for our wedding, but we finally found it in the Environmental Services Building. First, the venue is beautiful. It has a nice lawn that overlooks the Puget Sound - it's an amazing view, and made the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. The courtyard is great for an outdoor reception. One of my favorite parts is the bridge to the side of the building - it's canopied by trees that let the sun filter in, and it made a great setting for some of our wedding photos.Sent on 08/03/2015
Everyone at the ESB was a pleasure to work with, and they were always helpful every time I had a question. The price was great too, and we were on a tight budget. Considering everything we got - from the beautiful setting to the friendly people and service - it was a wonderful value. All of our guests said it was a great location for our wedding and were impressed by the location.
My husband and I are so happy we found the Environmental Services Building. It was the perfect place for our wedding!
Environmental Services Building's reply:The ESB is definitely a hidden gem in the area! We are so glad you chose us as your venue for your special day. Congratulations and many blessings for your future.

Beautiful location and the building provides flexibility that other wedding venues don't. We had VERY iffy weather for the wedding but with the large banquet room and lobby - and the partially covered patio area, we didn't have a problem. Weather even managed to improve as the evening wore on and everyone thought it was lovely.Sent on 09/07/2014
Eena and team are very easy to work with and I think this is a superb wedding venue.
Hannah · Married on 08/24/2014
Love, love, loved working with Eena, and the team at the environmental services building. They were flexible, helpful, and professional. The venue was perfect. We were married outside, and had our reception on the lawn as well, with the beautiful view of the Pudget Sound.Sent on 09/08/2014
The Environmental Services Building is a great building with great bathrooms, kitchen, a/v, a team to help set up, flip the space, and clean up, and always readily available with anything you would need.
The price for this venue is also a great deal for what you're getting! I couldn't be happier with our venue, and all our guests loved the location and view as well.
