The seaport city of Seattle is renowned for its cool summers and temperate winters, fragrant evergreens, and its dedication to sustainability and environmental protection. Why not tie the knot with your dearly beloved amidst the picturesque Cascade Mountains flowing across the horizon?
Bordering Oregon state, Canada, and the eastern Pacific Ocean, the state of Washington became part of the Union in 1889. Also known as the Evergreen State, its diverse scenery makes lakeside, garden, and farm-themed outdoor weddings a favourite among locals and visiting brides and grooms-to-be. Non-residents can easily get a Washington marriage license at any County Auditor’s office as long as they have their ceremony within 60 days and spend a three-day waiting period in the scenic state.
With cool summers and temperate winters, Seattle promises to make your wedding day a memorable one.
