Queen Anne Victorian Mansion was the perfect place for our wedding – we wish we could do it all over again! The moment we saw Queen Anne, we knew it was the venue we wanted to get married at.
It was absolutely perfect with classy antique furniture inside and handsomely kept gardens. For those who haven’t visited the mansion and seen it in person, it has three stories. The first level is has a nice entrance with a small living room, a kitchen and another entrance to the gardens. The second story has three rooms that have historical artifacts dating back as far that the late 1800’s. The top story reminded me of a gentlemen’s club with a pool table (something my groomsmen and I enjoyed very much the day of the wedding) listening to Frank Sinatra and having a little Johnny Black to calm the nerves. I can’t say enough about how everyone fell in love with the vintage furniture and décor throughout the mansion.
Outside is well kept (something that was very important to us because we wanted to have an outdoor wedding). Being from Washington, we know sunny days are sometimes hard to come by in the Northwest, but the mansion has a large gazebo that gave us the feeling of an outdoor wedding without the worry of the weather.
The venue itself is reasonably priced but where they get you is in the cost of food and drinks and since you have to use their catering it gets pricy quickly. The food was amazing though and we still have people telling us how good the food was. We decided to go with Mediterranean since I am half Lebanese.
One thing we decided to do is hire a wedding coordinator. At our initial consultation we were told that the venue does provide a day of coordinator, but that it only covered standard things for the day of the wedding. A few coordinators were provided by Queen Anne, but decided to go with a family friend who came highly recommended.
There were definitely stressful times throughout this entire wedding planning process, but all in all, our wedding coordinator and the staff at Queen Anne made the day of perfect. We had our coordinator deal with Queen Anne throughout the planning and day of process and everything went smoothly. My wife and I didn’t have to worry about a thing and we can honestly say that we wish we could re-live the day again and again.
The staff was very attentive and responsive to all emails and other communications and made the whole process seem easy and enjoyable. They answered all my questions and did a great job at offering accommodations and changes to make everything perfect.
Overall I could not recommend a better place to get married at... it is truly a was the perfect place to get married and you’ll be thankful you did when you see the photos that capture settings you won ‘t find anywhere else. This venue has everything a wedding needs: elegance, indoor/outdoor space, beautiful grounds, tons of parking, and great service. I’d highly recommend them for any wedding or special event.
