Beautiful, magical, mountain top experience
Not even sure how to begin! THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VENUE...and gracious host for our daughter's wedding. We had a bit of rain...but that just added to the romanticism of the event. Our host did not try to dictate that we move in doors but allowed us to take the chance...and pivoted quickly to make adjustments for the rain. There are so many beautiful places for photos from the lavender field, to the gazebo, to the canopy of trees, to the waterfall near the house, to the lighted pathway of trees. Kingston House and Matt will forever hold a special place in our hearts.Sent on 10/01/2019

Kingston House was so perfect for our wedding. We loved that we had a 2 night stay there! The night before the wedding, we had the rehearsal dinner there and all of our wedding party stayed the night! Kinam was so easy to work with and made me a relaxed bride. They provided the tables and chairs and did all of the set up and tear down! I couldn’t have asked for a better venue!Sent on 10/02/2018

I photographed a wedding here recently and it is a wonderful venue. Accommodating, beautiful, generous amounts of space and well kept rooms, lavender field is beautiful in bloom and the ceremony site is very unique.Sent on 06/15/2017

The Kingston House was a phenomenal venue and perfect for our wedding! Matt was amazing, took care of us every step of the way, was so helpful with answering questions during the planning process, and worked so well with our planner.Sent on 09/28/2016
Once we got to the venue for the weekend, our experience was above and beyond our expectations! The house was amazing, stocked with so much (like coffee, chocolate, kitchen appliances, hair dryers, firewood, internet, etc...) We loved our time on the property and were pleasantly surprised that Matt had even built us a fire in the fire pit!
The venue is beautiful and the staff did an amazing job. I can't recommend this place enough! You will be glad you chose this magical place for your wedding or event!

Kingston House Weddings is for the couple who wants the flexibility to choose specific caterers, bartenders as well as overall flow of the event. Throughout the whole process the Kingston House was accommodating as well as thoughtful in their recommendations to match our personality as a couple. Being a first time bride and groom comes with its own challenges but the Kingston House staff especially Matt helped guide us every step of the way. On the day of the wedding the staff made sure that both the bride and groom could spend time with the bridal party and groomsmen vs. setting up the venue. We couldn't have been happier to get married outdoors under the trees, which mimicked the way in which we met. One benefit of renting the Kingston House the night before allowed for the bridesmaids and groomsmen to meet prior to the wedding night which definitely helped make the event overall more cohesive and fun. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for showing all of our friends and family from the midwest the PNW hospitality and beauty that only the Kingston House could deliver. Cheers from the newlywed couple.Sent on 11/06/2016

Take it from someone who does events for a profession: The Kingston House, and staff, has everything you could possibly want in order to execute a stunning, unique, one-of-a-kind, event.Sent on 02/07/2017
My husband and I got married on the property in July of 2016, and it was an amazing experience. From the second we first met Matt, to the day we drove off the property as husband and wife, we never once questioned our decision. The Kingston house offers so much more than many other venues: a beautiful outdoor venue with various ceremony and activity options, a wonderful indoor facility, first class lodging on site (beautiful home!), tables and chairs, and an amazing staff. Without hesitation, I would recommend The Kingston House to anyone who’s looking to host a top-notch event.

My husband and I had our wedding here on July 3rd, and it was perfect! We stayed two nights with the whole wedding party, which gave us time to set up and tear down, hang out, and even have rehearsal dinner the night before. The house itself is just amazing, with plenty of space for our party of 14. The kitchen is gorgeous and well-stocked, and there are barbecues for guests to use. The living room is spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the grounds and the pond. There is even a baby grand piano in the house, and a hot tub off of the main suite.Sent on 07/19/2016
The grounds are incredible, with a fantastic gazebo that's perfect for ceremonies, and a new trellis at the pond that would be wonderful as well. The Kingston crew did an impeccable job preparing the grounds, which were just stunning. There is a beautiful and peaceful path around the pond, and the lavender farm is the perfect spot for photos. There is also a gorgeous koi pond/ garden/ waterfall patio in the back that was my favorite spot of all, and was great for photos with family.
There is a newly built dining hall that fit our 100 guests no problem, complete with a catering kitchen and two lovely guest bathrooms (accessible!). The dining hall itself has high vaulted ceilings, and glass garage-style doors that open onto the patio, which gave dinner a nice open feel. It's the perfect venue for the Seattle area, because all the places guests will be are rain-friendly, while still giving you an outdoor experience.
Working with Matt and Kinam was a pleasure from start to finish. Matt was always courteous and informative, and responded to questions quickly. He was also on-site for the entire wedding, and the staff on site were all very helpful and courteous, and even helped put up some of our decorations. He and Kinam and the whole Kingston staff are gems, and we were so lucky to have them. They really made the day run smoothly, and helped us enjoy every moment.
