We’re so excited to have you share in our special day! Please join us at the Golden Gardens Bathhouse, a quaint brick 1929 building on the beach overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
Our ceremony will begin at 4:30pm outside on the Meadows Lawn just north of the Bathhouse. Drinks, dinner and dancing will follow in the Bathhouse. Please allow time for parking as it is limited (extremely limited if the weather is sunny) and we are unable to reserve spots. We are encouraging guests to take Uber or a cab if you’re staying in a hotel or home nearby.
Fancy Casual Attire, please wear appropriate lawn shoes
Parking will be extremely limited, especially if the weather is nice. We recommend taking a cab or uber if you’re staying nearby. For those who do drive, please note that the park has upper lots with walkways to the Bathhouse. Please keep in mind it is a lengthy walk from the upper lots so feel free to drop off part of your party before you park. It is also important to note that the park has about 6-8 handicap spots in the lower lot along the waterfront.
