For the first time, Seattle Parks & Recreation is excited to offer three opportunities to host wedding ceremonies in the Japanese Garden during the 2013 season. Ceremonies will be held between July and September on Saturday evenings. As one of Seattle's most beautiful locations, the Japanese Garden can provide an intimate wedding ceremony in a serene setting.

The Japanese Garden is a delicate environment, but we may be able to accommodate specific requests to host a small reception as well. Please fill out the details below.
