Perfect experience at Fireseed
Having our wedding at Fireseed was a truly incredible experience. We felt so cared for by Dawn and Dave and staff. The food was INCREDIBLE and they catered to some dietary restrictions with such ease. The venue was immaculate and the service was perfect. My husband and I left feeling like Dawn and Dave felt like part of our family after the event. I couldn't recommend this venue more.Sent on 10/18/2019

Professionalism and Excellence
Our wedding at Fireseed was absolutely incredible, and I owe so much of it to the expertise of Dawn and Dave Noble, the owners and caterers. First things first, the venue feels intimate, since there is no one else there apart from your guests and the staff, and the gardens are gorgeous. We wanted our guests, many of whom were coming from out of town, to experience the unique beauty of the PNW, and Fireseed was a wonderful way to showcase this. Also, you have access to the venue starting from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning, giving you plenty of time to set things up and pack everything up before and after the wedding.Sent on 10/07/2019
Dave handles most of the email communication leading up to the wedding, and he is so prompt with his replies. No matter how many questions I sent to him, I would have a response from him by the end of the day at the latest, and sometimes within the hour. It alleviated a lot of wedding stress to have Dave coordinate the party rentals, since I didn't really have any idea how many tables, glasses, plates, etc. to order for the amount of guests we had, whereas Dave has experience in this and knows how many to order.
At our tasting, despite having my parents there with me along with my fiancé, Dave spoke directly to me and made sure that the food was what I wanted, despite the other voices in the room. Initially, we thought we wanted to have a casual rehearsal dinner at one of the big houses we rented for the wedding party, but the owner of the house said we couldn't have more than 14 people on the property. When I mentioned this to Dave, he said, "Oh, I've catered an event at that house for 60 people before and know the owners! Let me talk to them and see if we can work something out." Sure enough, Dave emailed me a few days later and said that the house would make an exception for our rehearsal dinner! While we ultimately went another route and had our rehearsal dinner at a local restaurant, the fact that Dave was able to arrange that option for us shows how above and beyond he is willing to go for his clients.
Dawn is so on top of coordinating the rehearsal the day before, and the day of the wedding she is a force to be reckoned with (in the best way). She kept everything running super smoothly and was able to wrangle our large wedding party into listening and following instructions. I felt like I didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because I could trust Dawn to take care of any issues or answer any questions that came up.
Lastly, the food and service was incredible. Many people commented on how it was such a delicious meal, and many said that the cake was one of the best they had at a wedding. Dave was very flexible with creating the menu and was able to create my specific requests, and had plenty of suggestions of his own when I didn't know what to choose. The servers were kind and helped me have the best time at our wedding -- one saved me one of the specialty cocktails before they ran out so I could have a chance to enjoy one.
Overall, I contribute the smoothness of our wedding day pretty much all to Dave, Dawn, and the staff at Fireseed. Everything was wonderful and I can say it was the best day of my life. Thank you so much to them. I cant recommend Fireseed highly enough!

Look no further!!
My husband and I visited Fireseed and knew right away we wanted to book our summer wedding there. The gardens are stunning and extremely well maintained. Dave and Dawn(the owners) were great at keeping us on track and extremely responsive to all of our questions along the way. The vendor list they provided was also super helpful. Dave runs the kitchen and Dawn acts as day-of-coordinator and makes the desserts. The day went off seamlessly, Dawn had everyone in their places and was great to work with. Our guests raved about the food and the ice cream sandwiches, everyone is saying it's the best wedding food they have ever had. We can't recommend this place enough!Sent on 10/04/2019

Unrivaled for the best service, venue, location and food!
Dave and Dawn at Fireseed Catering made our wedding day perfect. They are incredibly professional, talented, organized and thoughtful with the food, timeline, environment, gardens, service and more. They made the planning and day of stress free and magical. I cannot imagine a better duo and venue.Sent on 09/02/2019

Fireseed is a wonderful gem and we had the best weekend of our lives. Dave was like our wedding guru who made the whole process smooth and calm. He is super responsive and attentive. On the day itself, Dawn steps in to ensure the event runs smoothly and the couple can relax and enjoy the experience. Wish we could do it again :)Sent on 07/12/2019

The Perfect Wedding
Fireseed is such a beautiful venue. We were greeted with kindness and respect the from the first visit all the way to the day after with clean up. Dave and Dawn are amazing at what they do! Their appetizers, dinner, and desserts were all our guests could talk about after the wedding, especially the ice cream sandwiches. Dave was amazing to work with leading up to the wedding and was always in communication with us. When it came to rehearsal, Dawn made sure we were prepared for both an outside and inside ceremony depending on weather. She made sure everyone knew exactly what to do, where to stand, what to say, etc. On the day of the wedding, Dawn was right there to make sure we stayed on time prior to the wedding and gave us warning times for when things were about to happen and directed us where to go at that time. Dave and Dawn really make you feel like part of their family, not to mention their staff are enjoyable and willing to go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. We are so glad we had the opportunity to meet such amazing people and have the dream wedding we had hoped for. Thank you both for everything you do!Sent on 07/23/2019

We had the most incredible experience at this venue! Dave and Dawn helped us manage the entire event, taking the stress and pain out of our big day away! Our wedding couldn’t have been more of a success in a more beautiful setting. We are so thankful that we started our life together here, and can not recommend Fireseed enough!!!Sent on 08/27/2018

The absolute best place to get married!
We don’t even know where to begin with our praise for Fireseed (and, specifically, Dave and Dawn). We were having trouble finding wedding venues we liked in Seattle, and decided to branch out a bit. I visited Fireseed without my then fiancé, as he was busy that day. It was a rainy, dreary, Seattle day, and, despite being a Pacific Northwest native, I am not a huge fan of the rain. From the moment I arrived, I knew that it was our venue, and knew that my fiancé would love it as much as I did (which proved true). Fireseed is such a quintessential Pacific Northwest venue, and has a little bit of everything—beautiful, immaculately maintained gardens, an organic vegetable garden, a lake view, a forest area with large pine trees, and a tastefully decorated barn that does not feel like any other barn! The grounds alone would have been reason enough to have our wedding there, but then we learned that Dave and Dawn are Culinary Institute of America graduates, and make THE most delicious food in the universe. Throughout the year of planning, Dave and Dawn were incredibly responsive and helpful, and are endlessly knowledgeable about every single planning logistic you can think of. On our wedding day, things ran absolutely perfectly, despite the rain that fell and then stopped about 5 minutes before the ceremony. Dave and Dawn took the rain in stride (and had endless umbrellas for guests), and were respectful of our desire to have the ceremony outdoors, despite the downpour that was occurring when they asked us our preference. The food was some of the best we have EVER had, hands down, and it was wedding food for 150 people, to boot. The fried chicken (we opted for a Southern menu, as we are currently living in Tennessee) truly was to die for. The desserts, made by Dawn, were also incredible—so much so that on our 2-month anniversary we decided to buck tradition and have a slice of our wedding cake! We could go on and on with endless praise for Dave, Dawn, their food, their venue, and them as people. We would recommend this venue in a heartbeat to all of our friends, and to anyone wanting a quintessential Pacific Northwest wedding with grounds, food, and service guests will remember for the rest of their lives.

We would recommend Fireseed to anyone!
Fireseed coordinated our rentals, servers, most of our set up and clean up, food and dessert! Dave and Dawn provided amazing recommendations when asked, but also made sure to emphasize that it was our day and we were free to make almost any decision we wanted. Having so many parts of our wedding coordinated by Fireseed allowed us not to have to worry about how things would come together—wedding planning is what they do all the time, and they are fabulous at it. We were completely stress-free on our wedding day thanks to Dave and Dawn. I can’t say enough positive things about them!Sent on 11/17/2018

I cannot express how amazing Dave and Dawn were to work with! The day of Dawn ensured that everything went smoothly and on time. The Fireseed wait staff were fantastic and were able to set up and then quickly move indoors due to rain. The food was delicious - highly recommend the fried chicken and salmon. Our cake was perfect as well. We were so lucky to have found Fireseed for our wedding venue!Sent on 07/09/2018

I cannot praise Fireseed Catering (Dave and Dawn) enough. From the amazing food and desserts, to the gorgeous gardens and mind-blowing flexibility, this could not be a better place to get married.
I don't even know where to begin so a few highlights:
Food: My husband has some very serious allergies, and a lot of minor ones, so this was an area of nervousness for us. Dave made sure we felt comfortable with all the food, even with the long list of foods to avoid. It was so fun being able to design our own menu, not picking from a set variation of a menu. Further, the food was INCREDIBLE. Our guests have all commented along the lines of "Your food was amazing, like not "for a wedding good", but restaurant really good". We had beef tenderloin, salmon, spetzle (an unexpetected favorite of guests), and seasonal vegetables. I also recommend getting the Key Lime Pie for dessert. I could eat that everyday for the rest of my life.
Venue: The gardens and venue is stunning. The pictures do not do it justice, seriously breathtaking.
Time: Dave and Dawn were so flexible. My mom did all of our flowers, and they let us prep them at the venue on Thursday (not in the contract, just extra time). Then within the contract is Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday morning. It makes for the most stress free weekend just because the coordination isn't so tight for deadlines.
Communication: I was absolutely the communication problem, however Dave continually followed up, made sure I didn't feel pressured, and helped keep me on track.
Recommendations: We used a DJ that Dave and Dawn recommended, and found their list of other vendors to be so helpful and wonderful.
Day of Coordination: Dawn is so phenomenal. She kept everything on track and completely stress free. The timing of the wedding felt effortless, even though I know it wasn't. For example: I dropped a bunch of stuff on the Sign-In/Gifts table planning to go back and organize it later. By the time I got back to it, Dawn and her team had completely set it up grabbing props from their own stash to make it look stunning. This happened in so many other ways, they are mind readers.
Rental coordination: Completely handled by Fireseed, so easy.
I cannot recommend Fireseed enough. Our pictures are so stunning thanks to the beautiful grounds, the food was incredible, and the day was so amazing. Dave and Dawn are the very best.Sent on 10/22/2018

An Absolute Dream of a Venue with the Best Venue Hosts
My fiance (now husband) and I took one look at this venue and just knew it was the one! We met Dave for the initial visit and within minutes of talking to him, we knew we had to book the place for our wedding. The location was perfect, the scenery was unbelievable beautiful, the tasting menu was delicious and the overall vibe was exactly what we wanted. We never even looked at any other venues--we just booked this one and felt entirely at peace with our decision! Throughout the months leading up to our wedding, Dave was beyond helpful, answered all of our questions, gave us tips, and overall provided us with prompt responses in a low stress and very chill vibe. We met Dawn the day before the wedding and she was also a delight to work with--and she makes the BEST pies!! Dawn seamlessly took over the day of planning the night before the wedding and I was so grateful to have someone who could direct our wedding day with such relaxed professionalism! Dave and Dawn were a dream to work with! A few other things I need to say (albeit a little late!), the food was the best wedding food I've ever had. The pies were DELISH. The catering staff was unbelievably attentive. The venue was clean, cozy, and overall perfect. AND, to top it off we had the venue for 3 days, which is unheard of and it was a game changer (Friday for prep, set up and rehearsal; Saturday for the big day and tons of fun; Sunday for clean up!) So, I want to thank Dave and Dawn for helping us out and being so thoughtful and attentive venue hosts--we are so thankful!!Sent on 01/27/2019

The most beautiful location for a wedding you could ever ask for!
Dave and Dawn were amazing to work with, they were so patient and willing to accommodate us. We had our tea ceremony and wedding at Fireseed. The views were breathtaking, and the garden was just unbelievable!
FOOD: The food and desserts were all our guests would talk about! Everything was crafted with such care. We were lucky enough to be able to eat produce that they grew in their own garden as well.
SERVICE: David was so fast at communicating with us and our wedding planner. Because he was so quick to respond, I felt at ease knowing that nothing would slip through the cracks. The staff on the night of the wedding were great as well, super friendly!
Seriously, look no further!Sent on 12/24/2017

If you have a dream, an idea, or half of an idea, then Fireseed Catering can make it come true. This venue is worth every single penny because the quality of service is absolutely outstanding. Our wedding guests are STILL raving about the beautiful venue, delicious food (that can literally fit any budget and palette), and professional staff. The couple who runs the business have successfully put on over 300 weddings, and their experience is evident. They handle every rental aspect, act as your personal wedding planner, cater each part of the event--including decadent desserts! Selecting this venue was the second best decision of the wedding (second after saying 'yes' to my now-husband :)Sent on 07/16/2017

I cannot be more pleasured and thankful for having Fireseed Catering. They made our wedding the most beautiful, elegantly simple, smooth, and delicious day. From the beginning, Dave was so calm, helpful, and efficient in helping us create our dream wedding. The menu, rentals, and structure to the wedding was all taken care of by Dave and his wife, Dawn. He and Dawn were so quick to respond to any email I had. Dave's food was absolutely amazing and Dawn's baking was just as spectacular. Dawn also took the reigns in coordinating the day before and of. She was so calm, caring, and clear about what needed to be done to have everything run smoothly! In addition to those two being amazing, their staff was also the best, I loved everyone that helped with the day! We are so grateful. It is/ was worth EVERY penny.Sent on 06/05/2017

Booking Fireseed as our wedding venue and caterer was the first (and by far the easiest!) wedding-related decision we made. We found Fireseed online about 15 months prior to our wedding month (September 2016), and could tell immediately that it was special. When we visited in person, everything felt right. The grounds were beautiful, Dave and Dawn were so friendly and knowledgeable, and we walked away without a doubt in our minds that Fireseed was where we wanted to spend our special day.Sent on 12/17/2016
Fast forward to our wedding day, and everything was absolutely perfect, as we knew it would be! Several of our guests have told us that Fireseed was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever visited. From the beautiful reception hall/lounge to the gorgeous garden and greenhouse area to the game area and playground (we had LOTS of kids at our wedding!) Fireseed truly offered an amazing experience to all of our guests.
And the food—spectacular! Quite a few of our guests were from the south, and they continue to rave about the amazing fried chicken and hush puppies they had at our cocktail hour and reception. Service was also outstanding: everyone's needs were met promptly and cheerfully.
Behind the scenes, Dave and Dawn were incredibly helpful in answering questions and offering suggestions throughout our wedding planning process, as well as helping to keep our schedule running smoothly on our wedding day. Dave and Dawn, thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!
In short, we recommend Fireseed wholeheartedly and feel that it was absolutely the best choice we could have made for our venue and catering. Since Fireseed is a very popular wedding venue, we recommend that other couples visit Fireseed as early as possible in the planning process: we thought we were way ahead of the game when we visited 14 months in advance, but at that point in time our wedding month was already almost booked up!

I simply cannot say enough good things about Fireseed Catering and Dawn and Dave. They are the gold standard of Pacific Northwest weddings and their professionalism and flawless execution made our wedding better than I could have ever imagined. Their venue is stunning (and affordable!), the food is to die for and the support we received was out of this world. Dawn and Dave made our wedding so special, I can't even imagine getting married somewhere else. Fantastic vendor, fantastic people.Sent on 08/15/2017

I fell in love with Fireseed Catering the moment I first saw it. My wife-to-be was out of the country, so it was a complete act of trust in letting me pick out our venue alone, but she couldn't have been more pleased when she saw it and met the lovely owners, Dave and Dawn. They made our evening perfect, were incredibly responsible to emails, thought of every last detail, did a LOT of day-of coordinating (walking us through the rehearsal), and everyone keeps raving about the food.Sent on 12/19/2016

Should You Get Married Here?: Hell Yes.Sent on 08/05/2016
VENUE: Many guests have told us that it was one of, if not the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. The venue at Fireseed is unparalleled. As a nature/PNW loving, adventurous couple we knew we had to have our wedding here and toured it during the winter of 2015. It was still beautiful even then. What a shock it was to see all the gardens and flowers in full bloom on the wedding day! It was so beautiful. It was like a dream. I couldn't believe it. There is so much to do at Fireseed. The grounds are expansive - they have wooded areas, outdoor games, gardens, a large field, and a boardwalk that sits on a pond. We loved giving guests the freedom to roam and explore, as we wanted them to make their day their own as well. I can't say enough how beautiful the venue is in the summer. The flowers were so spectacular. We decided not to have an arch because the backdrop was too beautiful to cover up. The reception hall is spacious and beautiful. It has a classic, rustic charm with tasteful materials and decor. Perfect.
SERVICE: Everyone got their food promptly during the reception, and during cocktail hour the drinks and food kept coming. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Again, Dawn and David are awesome. Dawn helped coordinate on the day of the wedding to kept things running smoothly. Huge weight off my shoulders.
FOOD: Some guests have said it was the most delicious food they have ever had at a wedding. Personally, this is definitely true for myself and my family. It was so good. Everything from the cocktail drinks, to the main course, to dessert. I honestly wish I had eaten more.
In CLOSING: Fireseed is an incredible venue with so much to offer and within very reasonable price. The service is impeccable and the inclusiveness of the venue/food/dessert/rentals/day of coordinating helps SO much with planning. I am so thankful and and feel so lucky we were able to get married here.

Dave and Dawn are amazing and so accommodating and their venue is incredible.
Our wedding was June 4th and the day was perfect. The food was the best ever, farm to table and the best thing is you get the venue for the weekend- yes, Friday through Sunday.
Amazing photo opportunities galore with beautifully done bridal suite and groom's room.
You must get married here!!

I can't say enough about Dave, Dawn, their amazing team, and the grounds at Fireseed Catering. Throughout the planning process Dave helped us select a menu, pick out our rentals and plan out the day. The food was incredible (though I didn't get to eat enough) and I'm still hearing about it from guests. The cupcakes and cutting cheesecake were some of the best I've ever had too. Our wedding day was a little iffy weather-wise an hour or so before the ceremony Dawn and Dave approached me about moving the ceremony inside, but also gave me the option of having it outside and offered the use of their umbrellas (they had enough for all the guests). Their servers handed them out to guests in need and made sure the wedding party had enough for the ceremony. They are so accommodating and worth changing your date if you already have a dream weekend picked out - I'm sure glad I did!Sent on 05/24/2016

This is an exceptional venue with an exceptional team to help you have the most perfect wedding day!! We could not be any happier with our choice to have our wedding at Fireseed!Sent on 06/14/2016
The grounds are absolutely stunning, and I will never forget how I felt as I was about to walk down the aisle and looked around. My eyes teared up as I took in how beautiful and absolutely perfect it was! Both our out-of-town and Seattle guests were blown away by by the gorgeous, quintessential PNW setting.
Dawn and Dave are really amazing to work with. We met Dave when we first toured the property, and we loved how he came across as just a normal down-to-earth guy vs some of the other overly enthusiastic, salesy wedding event people we had encountered. He was our point person throughout the planning and was always responsive, straightforward, and helpful.
We used Dawn and Dave's "Resource" page on their website for selecting vendors, and are very happy with our choices. They were also helpful in helping us organize the weekend for our guests-- from securing a bar that would stay open for us in Langley Friday night to providing a catered brunch for Sunday.
Dawn helped organize us at the rehearsal and made the wedding day go extremely smoothly. I was particularly interested in starting the ceremony on time, and she made sure that happened. :-) She was also particularly awesome in helping deal with a small snafu from the florist and easing my stress along the way.
We are particularly passionate about good food, which was one of the additional selling points for going with Fireseed. They did not disappoint! Everything was fantastic, and our guests are still talking about it...especially the fried chicken!

Fireseed is outstanding - book them, immediately, and don't think twice. We cannot say enough about their spectacular venue, the fabulous food, and simply how nice and easy they were to work with. We booked Fireseed site unseen based on recommendations, and fell in love with the owners (Dave & Dawn) and the venue a few weeks later when we toured the venue.Sent on 07/14/2015
Venue: Fireseed's grounds are absolutely breathtaking. Gorgeous, well maintained gardens (through all seasons), and a clean, unique barn. It feels modern and vintage all in one, but most of all, unique. There are special touches everywhere you look from the specially crafted Whidbey ironwork to the spectacular barn doors to the outdoor bar and beyond. Importantly (for us), Dave and Dawn only do one wedding a weekend so they let you set up before and break anything down Sunday. Dave was beyond accommodating and you have the place to yourself for the weekend. It feels magical.
Food: Weeks post-wedding, our guests are still talking about how Fireseed's was the best wedding food they have ever had. Most compared it to a high end restaurant meal not a wedding meal. Everyone raved about the mussels, but everything was perfectly cooked, fresh, and using local ingredients. And by local, I mean a lot of it was grown in their gardens. Farm to table... how can you get any better?! And Dawn's cake/pies were fabulous!
Dave & Dawn are freaking awesome: I cannot emphasize this point enough. We planned our wedding remotely and at no point were we ever stressed about the wedding. We knew all things Fireseed were handled. Dave responded thoughtfully and thoroughly within hours to every question (and there were a lot). Dave coordinated everything, provided nice choices, and exceptional service, always keeping cost in mind. They are professional in all ways and have a calming aura about them that comes in handy for a wedding. Love them!!
I maxed out review length but could go on forever... OUTSTANDING! EXCEPTIONAL!
