Our experience with Debbie and Kerry at Green Gates was everything we could have hoped and more. The venue itself is gorgeous, and they work so hard to keep it looking it’s best. They were very responsive and friendly even though I emailed them with many questions. They are such kind people and even helped us out with things during the day of - for example, our caterer left the leftover food out (did not put in fridge) and they noticed and made sure it made it into the fridge so it wouldn’t go bad. I can’t say enough good things about the gorgeous venue and Debbie & Kerry. Would recommend without any reservations - if you’re lucky enough to find an open date, snag it! Thank you Debbie & Kerry

The venue was absolutely beautiful and impeccable down to every last detail. The owners and operators were incredibly accommodating, kind, helpful, and just overall happy for us. Couldn’t have been happier with our wedding experience here!

My husband and I recently got married at Green Gates and we could not have been happier with our choice of venue. Debbie and Kerry do an amazing job maintaining the venue, we got so many compliments on how great the venue looked. Debbie and Kerry are great to work with. My husband and I lived out of state for most of the planning process, but they were very accommodating and very responsive to all of our questions. Another huge plus of Green Gates is that they allow you to use their decorations free of charge, which saved us a lot of money. We highly recommend Green Gates at Flowing Lake!

We had the best experience here! Not only is it a beautiful venue but the owners were always so helpful and quick at responding! We love them and you will too!

This venue has a mix of it all from rustic to modern and a lake to woods. The owners were so much fun to work with and all those extras that most venues charge you for such as using their free or, tables, chairs is all available to you ag no additinal charge! Most of it is donated from previous brides. It was a huge selling point for us! No nickel and diming and we loved that! This is a must see venue!

Kerry and Debbie are absolutely wonderful! We quickly fell in love with their venue and after hearing from them that they built a lot of the buildings on site themselves and used reclaimed materials we knew we wanted to get married at Green Gates. Their service was great, they were quick to respond to our emails, and they were professional, polite, and flexible when we accidentally missed a payment date. All of that plus the gorgeous venue made for an amazing wedding! Thank you Kerry and Debbie!

Debbie and Kerry were so kind and helpful both during the planning process and on the day-of! We had to move everything inside because of rain (which I honestly loved), and they helped us move the ceremony setup and all. They are constantly looking for ways to make their venue even cooler, whether it’s their new bar space or the AWESOME chandeliers, etc. Thanks so much for making such a beautiful place!!!

Mine and my husband's experience at Green Gates at Flowing Lake was absolutely amazing! Kerry and Debbie are so wonderful to work with and have done a beautiful job with their venue. The day of our wedding they teamed up so well with our family to get things set up, have everything running smoothly during the wedding, and getting everything take down at the end in record time. So so glad we choose Green Gates at Flowing Lake for our wedding. It was the best day of our lives!

Green gates at flowing lake where do I begin. If you are looking for a wedding Venue that represents the beauty of the Pacific northwest, this is your place. A year ago we did the “Snohomish Wedding Tour” looking for the right venue for our kids. This was the last place we went to and knew almost immediately it was perfect. So inviting and Full of warmth and rustic charm. All the special & personal touches, like succulents planted in old firefighter boots...that was a big hook for us my husband is a firefighter we knew it was a sign. Nothing is over done and nothing is spared. The landscaping is meticulous & creatively well thought out. You will find numerous settings to capture your Photo moments. Because of how beautiful this venue is, it requires very little decor needed. Plus they are so generous to lend you more decor from their storage.
The best part about this absolutely gorgeous venue, are the owners Kerry and Debbie. They feel like family the minute you meet them. There attentive and caring and do everything to make the wedding day goes smoothly. They’re a absolute pleasure to work with as well as their amazing staff.... honestly you’re a true blessing. Thank you Kerry and Debbie, Green gates was a dream come true for our kids, a beautiful memory.

Green Gates was the perfect venue to celebrate our June wedding. Debbie and Kerry are easy to work with, professional and transparent when it comes to their policies. They responded promptly to emails and were available when we needed to visit the venue throughout the year. Everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding and we could not have asked for a more beautiful location. Debbie and Kerry take meticulous care of their property. You can truly see Kerry's passion and eye for quality craftsmanship as you explore each corner of the venue. I would recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you Kerry and Debbie for a fabulous and unforgettable day!

Wow!! I don’t even know where to begin in saying how wonderful this venue is for a wedding. It is naturally gorgeous with the ceremony view for your guests being overlooking a lake with greenery all around. It is peaceful and beautiful. The owners, who are amazing to work with, have done so much to create a unique reception space in the ballroom. It is a renovated barn with exposed beams and chandeliers. They have included lighting that is very romantic and another thing you don’t have to worry about during wedding planning. They have working restrooms so you don’t have to rent additional portable restrooms like you would with a lot of outdoor spaces. The ballroom is indoor/outdoor and they are highly prepared for unexpected weather. The property flows very naturally and makes for a seamless experience for your guests. They recently put in a new bar area which goes perfectly with the other thoughtful landscaping and thematic feel of the venue. The cocktail area is gravel with well thought out wine barrels with marble tops for a chic feel in an outdoor space. The huge trees surrounding that area help beat the heat of a hot day and bring another layer to the feel of the space. Now, the best part are the owners themselves, Debbie and Kerry. They are clearly passionate and so caring about the venue and making sure their customers have a successful and fantastic wedding day. They are very easy to communicate with and get back to you quickly to any questions and requests to tour the venue again, if necessary, during your wedding planning journey. Their day of staff is also friendly and very helpful. I can’t say enough about both of them and their fantastic wedding venue. TEN STARS. Best decision we made to have our wedding at Green Gates at Flowing Lake.

This wedding venue is AMAZING!!! I could go on and on about how great Kerry & Debbie are, they truly have created a beautiful oasis for the brides & grooms. They were present the entire day without being seen. They helped my coordinator with anything she needed and have a lot of great decor and small details you can use. They are constantly improving the grounds and it looks better and better every time you visit. You cant go wrong with this venue!
Heather · Married on 08/13/2016
My husband and I had the best experience working with Debbie and Kerry at Green Gates! From the very beginning they were accommodating and a pleasure to work with! They were patient with us whenever we wanted to visit the venue and plan out decorations (which was a lot), every time they greeted us with a hug and spent time catching up with us. They truly care about their couples on a level that is far above any vendor/customer relationship. Our wedding day was the most amazing day of our lives, and it would not have been that way without the help of Debbie and Kerry. Not only did they provide an absolutely gorgeous venue for us to get married at, but they were there all day for whatever we needed. They helped set up decorations, put out tables and chairs, and made sure all of our guest were having a great time. I could not be happier with our decision to choose Green Gates at Flowing Lake as our wedding venue, and would wholeheartedly recommend them to any couple looking for the best venue in all of Snohomish!

Once my Daughter and her Fiance saw this venue and saw it was perfect for the rustic style that they wanted, we didn't look any further and booked it right away. The wedding was in September, 2015 and we couldn't have asked for a better venue for their special day. Kerry and Debbie were very accommodating and helpful to ensure the wedding and reception went smoothly. They are very professional and friendly. Whenever we had questions they were very responsive to provide answers or helpful suggestions. They have many items that they allow you to use and they are onsite before, during and after helping out. They work very hard to ensure their customers needs are met and you can tell they have their hearts in their business. Many of our friends and family commented on what a beautiful and very cool venue this is. All in all it was an awesome experience. We were very happy with how everything all turned out.

Got married here late August and had an amazing experience! The owners were great with communication and answering questions/offering solutions up until the wedding day. They day of they worked hand in hand with my coordinator to make sure everything we needed and envisioned happened. The weather wasn't the best & we had to get a tent for the ceremony last minute, they reached out to other brides and grooms to see if they'd be interested in splitting costs, which was so appreciated. They also worked well with all vendors in organization and helping get everything set up when it did start raining. Such a great experience and not an expensive venue. I appreciated that they provide tables and chairs and were so helpful in planning our big day. The venue is absolutely beautiful with so many unique rustic touches to it and I loved the spacious bridal cottage. Parking attendants were on site and able to help accommodate all 200 of our guests

I could not have asked for a better wedding venue. It is hands down one of the most beautiful venues around. Debbie and Kerry work really hard to improve their place all the time and it shows! They are so sweet, friendly, and accommodating. I made many visits there prior to the wedding, to show a friend, or to check out available props, think through design options, and they were so easy to match schedules with. I saved a lot of money with all of the precious props they had on hand as well as basic supplies. They also worked wonders handling the ups and downs that came with working through some of my other vendors and were very gracious through it all. I would highly recommend this place!
Ivy · Married on 06/28/2015
Hands-down the best hosts and venue ever! Debbie and Kerry are amazing people, both personal and professional that serves so humbly and diligently. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!
kelly · Married on 05/30/2015
Kerry & Debbie are very sweet humble easy to work with folks! They want the best most fun day for your wedding & it reflects in the care they take of the grounds as well as the family! I couldn't imagine a more beautiful day with everything my daughter wanted! Most comments we received were, "what a fun enjoyable relaxing wedding!" Reasonably priced, lots of views, greenery & picture heaven! Heart & soul is most definitely shown in this venue & it shows!!!
kristi · Married on 05/30/2015
Kerry and Debbie were amazing people to work with, they make you feel like family. I could not have asked for a better wedding venue. This venue truly made my dream wedding come true. Everything went perfect from the ceremony on the lawn with the lake in the background to the open air barn where we held the reception. They have plenty of room for guests to spread out. Overall this was a great experience, good pricing, you get the venue morning until 10:30, and it makes a great backdrop for photos. All guests were in awe of how beautiful it is. Debbie and Kerry have put a lot of time and work into how amazing it is. Thank you for the perfect day!

This was the perfect place to get married! I loved every second of it! All my guests felt very comfortable while they were there. The owners are also very very sweet and were very fast at replying if i had any questions! The lake is also very gorgeous to have in the background. We were very happy with the choice to get married here!

Kerry and Debbie are FANTASTIC! The venue is FANTASTIC! They were so responsive and helpful in the planning process and the months leading up to the big day. I would email the owners with little questions I had and no matter how minor or major the detail, they made sure they responded right away. On the day of our wedding, they made us feel like we were the only wedding they've had all year with all their patience, kindness and support. The Bridal Cottage where the Bride and her ladies get ready is so comfy and gorgeous. The guys loved the Groom's cottage and it was awesome for pictures. Their venue is like a fairytale come true and we are constantly hearing from our guests how much they loved Green Gates. The setting and the items that Kerry and Debbie have collected for décor are so perfect and you would not need much else beyond linens, centerpieces, etc. The best thing about Green Gates is the flexibility. I have heard from so many friends who have horror stories dealing with their venue owners but with Kerry and Debbie, everything went so perfectly! We had a Vietnamese Tea Ceremony in the morning which required more flexibility and work but the venue helped out so much and everything went so smoothly. I am always telling people about Green Gates and how it is the perfect place for an event!
Allie · Married on 09/06/2013
Green Gates is a beautiful venue! We've had so many compliments. The guests loved it!
Upon our first meeting I felt like I had known Debbie and Kerry for a long time. They are wonderful to work with and responded promptly to our questions. Very accommodating!
The bridal cottage had mirrors and couches and was perfect for getting ready. The groomsmen's cabin was very nice as well!
On the day of the wedding I felt like Debbie and Kerry were friends of ours helping to make everything perfect. Never did I feel like this was just another wedding. They even gave our daughter and son-in-law a homemade gift. Debbie and Kerry are so thoughtful!
Thank you for a perfect day!

Green Gates is the most beautiful venue with the most amazing owners! We found Green Gates online and I immediately fell in love. The setting and scenery are gorgeous, but the venue also provides a covered option for those unpredictable Pacific Northwest days. Everything from the lighting to the available props to the flexible space, which is perfect for customizing the event flow, was just as we wanted. The owners, Kerry and Debbie, are a joy to work with and are truly gracious hosts. They made sure that we had everything we needed and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was as perfect as we could have imagined. I would recommend Green Gates to anyone looking for a rustic but polished, outdoor venue!
