If you are planning a wedding in the Tacoma area, you will be happily surprised at the number of high-quality wedding vendors available to you. We have worked with many of them, and find that many of them also offer very reasonable prices.


There are several lodging options in Tacoma near the Thornewood wedding venue for out-of-town guests. We can provide you with a list of options that we have found to be well-liked by our wedding parties.


Thornewood also provides an indoor/outdoor wedding venue solution to the Tacoma weather that has sometimes plagued local brides. Since there is never any guarantee that Tacoma skies will be clear at any time of year, we can move an outdoor wedding from our garden into our Great Hall inside the castle in less than fifteen minutes if there is unexpected rain or other inclement weather. We also have large grounds that can accommodate nearly any size tent, if you wish to use that as a bad-weather alternative.

Rain? No problem! Thornewood has you covered, literally. Our Tacoma wedding venue offers both indoor and outdoor wedding options, so our couples never have to worry about bad weather.
