This is a beautiful venue! I loved that we would have a gorgeous ceremony - rain or shine! It was nice weather for the ceremony - but clouded up and rained a bit later. We still got incredible photos. The staff is very friendly and worked to make sure that the entire day fit our vision. The entire wedding party stayed at the castle that night. Everyone raved about the rooms. A couple of our guests have food allergies and Thornewood accommodated them easily - and their food was delicious, too! We highly recommend Thornewood Castle and are looking forward to returning for our anniversary!

Thornewood Castle was the best venue for both our wedding ceremony & reception. It was perfect for our simple, romantic, and elegant wedding. There’s no need for a lot of decorations. Every angle is picture perfect. Even the staff are very convenient to work with.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have been able to get married at Thornewood Castle. Every inch of the property is breathtaking. Our guests really enjoyed walking the grounds, checking out the details inside and out. We didn't want a huge wedding, but we did want a place that was beautiful and had character. Thornewood gave us everything we wanted in a venue.

This is the most beautiful and romantic place & I am so happy we had our wedding here. Luckily we were able to have our wedding done in the English sunken garden and even though it was cloudy, it was still so beautiful. The staff at Thornewood were very gracious and so nice to work with. I just cant say enough about this venue. So beautiful and you don't need any real decorations, as this place is just beautiful on its own. Me and my husband also stayed the night in Annas Suite, which is amazing. Loved this place, perfect place for a wedding. THANK YOU THORNEWOOD/ we have so many good memories of our wedding and look forward to coming back Karla and Joseph Carlson

Beautiful venue, very helpful staff that were there but not highly visible. Many of our guests have told us they loved the place and thought it was a wonderful choice. The sunken garden worked perfect and had an amazing backdrop for pictures and ambiance. We stayed the night and were the only guests in the building so after all the guests were gone, the owners turned the lights on in the garden. we sat on the steps we just got married on and enjoyed a glass of wine as we reflected on a wonderful day. I can honestly say have no complaints...

We had our wedding at Thornewood Castle and couldn't have imagined a more amazing venue to marry my husband. The owner and staff were so helpful and caring. Being married here was the best choice I could have made (besides my choice of groom, of course). It was a dream come true!

I couldn't have asked for, found or picked a better venue for our wedding day! Thornewood is the complete package like no other. The venue itself will put your guests in a constant state of awe. The sunken English garden is spectacular in the summer/fall for an outdoor wedding. Also, jaw-dropping. Having our ceremony and reception in the same place was so convenient for us and for our guests, which allowed the day to not drag (like some can...) and it kept our guests entertained. Thornewood's staff was incredible. With the rental of the venue comes use of their tables, linens, chairs, staff, parking lots and parking attendants. They worked directly with our other vendors and even the tent people, becuase there was a chance of rain. I wanted a garden wedding SO badly, and the owner, Deanna-worked with her staff up until the last minute to accommodate this. (not only for the ceremony, but where our dinner tables went, inside or out-catering, inside or out, etc etc) Yes, The prices at Thornewood can be off-putting for some, but honestly-if you have it or can manage it-its worth every single penny and even more. Considering that so many of the included amenities (listed above) would cost you extra anyway-its almost a wash. I visited almost every venue imaginable in the greater Seattle Tacoma area. Thornewood may not be for everyone, but it was most definitely the perfect venue for us, and I have absolutely no regrets after getting married there. Also, being a B&B, the wedding party stayed the night before, and the bride/groom and so many of the family stayed the night after, which was so nice to relax and enjoy the castle alone after the party was cleared out with your dearest and closest that decided to stay. We were brought breakfast in bed the morning after, which we enjoyed with a view of the garden where we shared our vows of love with the people that mattered most the day before. I could think of no better place to have spent the best day of my life.

We were able to set up a time to come look at the castle, and that same day we booked our wedding date. They answered all my questions i had through email or over the phone. They provide staff to help with set up and take down. They make sure that everything goes smoothly on your special day! They have people to be parking attendants for your guests. Everything there is soooooooo gorgeous, you really didn't need to have very many decorations. The guests loved to come just for the fact that it was a castle. I have NOTHING to complain about! They had my room all ready for me to get ready in and everything went PERFECT

Thank you for your kind words, we are so pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful experience!

I love Thornewood castle and I was so pleased to have it as my venue for my wedding reception. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and they were flexible in taking down different things so I could put up decorations for my wedding. In planning for my wedding it was very helpful to meet with Deanna and get everything planned out for the day. Although some of the staff was a little difficult the day of, and there isn't a ton of parking. I thought it all went smoothly. Knowing the limitations ahead of time allowed for me to plan ahead and let people know to carpool and such. The castle is beautiful and it was perfect for my wedding. It was also nice to stay in the castle that night, because then we didn't have to travel far after to our hotel and the room we stayed in was beautiful.

Thornewood Castle, in my opinion, is and was the venue of perfection. It is stunningly beautiful, the staff are friendly and professional, and the site is epic! My guests were utterly transported, and everyone was saying that it was the most beautiful location for a wedding that they had ever been to. If you want fairy tale, Thornewood is the way to go.

I got married here september 3rd 2010. We couldn't have chosen a more ideal date for our wedding. Due to the 80+ degree weather we were able to hold the ceremony and most of the reception outdoors in the GORGEOUS garden. Seeing as our wedding was a little unique (we chose a circus theme) the elegance of Thornewood really brought out the class and timeless feel we wanted to incorporate. None of our guests had to lift a finger. they had our tables, chairs, linens, and music set up before we even arrived! I honestly couldn't have asked for a more unique, elegant and careless wedding. Deanna, Miranda and staff helped walk us through all the necessary details and even suggested various ways of arranging to utilize our space and creativity. So, I'm giving thornewood two thumbs up for all their hard work and customer oriented service.
