About Us

The Ruins is a mansion wedding venue located in Seattle, Washington. Enter into this venue’s magically splendid world of refinement and charming character as you are treated to interior designs inspired by home and abroad. Combining a number of elegant event spaces with fantastic service, hosting your wedding here will mean that you are treated to a true fairytale experience.

Facilities and Capacity

With four different event spaces available, there is somewhere to suit all manner of plans - each one brimming with sophistication.

For your ceremony, the Dining Room could easily serve as an indoor location. Complete with candelabra chandeliers, wall sconces, and ample natural light coming in through the windows, it is a bright and relaxed space. When arranged with cushioned seating, it provides room for the wedding party to mark the moment when you say ‘I do’ by taking photos. In front of the fireplace, you can hold hands, exchange rings, and say your vows as floral decorations add color and fragrance to the room. Indeed, this room can also accommodate 72 for a seated dinner.

The Ballroom is dominated by eye-catching murals, while crystal chandeliers cast light around the room. The dark decor fuses harmoniously with the artificial light to create a beautiful atmosphere that is embellished by the flicker of candles. With a dance floor, 90 people can sit and dine here before grooving to some music. Alternatively, without a dance floor, 120 can be seated for the reception meal, while 150 can stand, mingle, and converse.

The Gold Room offers space for lounging, chatting, and enjoying the nearby patio. Depending on the room’s layout, between 25 and 36 people can be accommodated here.

The vibrant Maisonette offers striking colors, vivid ornaments, and a warm appeal. Smaller than many of the other rooms, it suits intimate celebrations. Between 18 and 25 people can be accommodated here.

Overall, the maximum capacity of The Ruins is approximately 250 people.

  • This is truly a magical little spot in the heart of Seattle. My husband and I knew right when we walked in the door we wanted to have our wedding party there. If you're looking for something that your guests will keep gawking at, look no further. There are a million things to say about the visuals of this place, but you can just look at the photos and understand what I'm getting at. The other reason this place is special is the people behind the scenes. I was nervous planning a wedding would mean stress city, but Madeline and her crew of enthusiastic workers made everything easy. They were always on top of replaying to me, willing to work with my budget, and excited to make my day special. They will even go as far as to make sure I ate at my event. I don't regret one thing about my wedding.
