Did you miss the 2017 Weddings in Woodinville wedding show? Not to worry, I’ve got you covered! The beginning of the year is always fun in Seattle, because this is the time when all the local wedding vendors get together and start their “Pick me, Pick me” campaign.

On Sunday, January 29, I was eager and excited to attend the 2017 Weddings In Woodinville Wedding Show, a super fun and definitely a must-go event if you’re planning your wedding, or you just want to connect with other professionals of the industry and network (like me). 8 top wedding venues of Woodinville opened their doors for all the brides and grooms to be, and offered them a one-of-a-kind experience while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and sipping on fantastic wine in style. Each venue was fully decorated by an assigned wedding planner at that specific location, to help each couple visualize their special day. Their attention to detail and creativity left me with my jaw dropped, and a sweet long lasting impression. In addition to that, almost 100 vendors made this event come alive, and at every venue you could only find one professional from each category on site that could answer questions – so 1 planner, 1 videographer, 1 photographer, and so on…

The tour started at 12PM with registration at 11:30AM and lasted for 4 hours. Woodhouse Wine Estates was where everyone departed from, followed by Novelty Hill – Jannuik Winery, JM Cellars, Willows Lodge, Redhook Brewery, Columbia Winery, Hollywood Schoolhouse and finally DeLille Cellars (maybe almost in that order). The event was setup as a tour, and there was a shuttle service as your chauffeured transportation by Butler Seattle – Valet, Transportation & Tour Specialist.

So let’s dive into it! Below I have listed all the venues participating, and they all link to their websites for more information. I put as many photos as I took, with hopes that it will help you get a better understanding how these gorgeous venues look all beautifully setup on a real wedding day. I ran out of time to photograph the Redhook Brewery, but I included some information about it all the way at the bottom.


Sunday’s Planner for WOODHOUSE WINE ESTATES: Julia Pavlovski //

FROM WOODHOUSE WINE ESTATES: “The Woodhouse Wine Estates is a boutique Woodinville winery passionate about crafting high quality, complex and age-worthy wines. We craft wines that are terroir-driven with luscious, complex fruit. We focus on balance and restraint, so our wines age very well. Varietally correct with old world sensibility, our wines are released a bit later than most so that they have an opportunity to rest, integrate and show their fullest flavor complexities.”

MY THOUGHTS:The bright, bold and dramatic theme was stunning! Red tones are my favorite in combination with gold or cream. Everything looked very romantic and elegant. They called it “Jeweled Romance”.

Taylor’d Events Group // Jennifer Taylor //

FROM NOVELTY HILL _JANNUIK WINERY: “Novelty Hill • Januik Winery is an ideal location for a contemporary, intimate wedding celebration. From casual to elegant, our staff specializes in creating rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions that reflect the unique personality of each couple. Whether you’re looking for an elegant seated dinner, casual hors d’oeuvre reception, or traditional wedding buffet our in-house culinary team will work with you to prepare a sumptuous feast. Accommodates 120 seated or 175 for receptions.”

MY THOUGHTS: I was really impressed by this venue as soon as I walked in. I did not expect it to look like that inside. The place opens up as soon as you set foot inside, and you are welcomed by a fantastic open lobby/bar where you can see all the wine selections, grab a glass and enjoy it to by the fireplace. The main event room was decorated with bold colors and metallics. Taylor’s vision was to bring both Italian and French influences together in a romantic fashion. She definitely succeeded! And before I forget to mention this – the Cellar Dining room downstairs was pure heaven for me, and you know why? Because it changed colors!!! You’ll see below what I’m talking about. Who said you can’t mix candles with pretty LED lights if they make the ambiance just right?!

Sunday’s Planner for JM CELLARS: MG Davis Events // Melody Davis //

FROM JM CELLARS:  “Treat your guests to a beautiful wooded setting in the heart of Woodinville Wine Country. Nestled on a secluded hillside called Bramble Bump, JM Cellars provides an inviting atmosphere, warm hospitality and award winning wines. Exchange your vows in the wine cellar, under the rustic arbor or in the midst of the gardens. Our 7 acres provide ample opportunities for stunning wedding photos. Our indoor capacity is 100 seated with 120 reception style. Outdoors under canopies, we can accommodate 80 seated and up to 100 guests reception style. Come celebrate your special occasion at JM Cellars!”

MY THOUGHTS: Gosh, JM Cellars rocked a Haute Boheme Theme put together in a very eccentric and adventurous way by Melody Davis. Pinks and greens stood out to me, and the addition of the Chinese Lanterns hanging outside in the dining area made me feel like I was in a vintage European movie.

Sunday’s Planner for WILLOW’S LODGE: Jacky Grotle //

FROM WILLOWS LODGE: “Located in the heart of Woodinville Wine Country, Willows Lodge offers you an intimate and unique special occasion site featuring award-winning herb gardens and a quintessential Northwest ambiance. Simple elegance, natural beauty and inspired cuisine provided by the Barking Frog restaurant along with the expert knowledge of our seasoned catering/event professionals are just a few of the elements that make Willows Lodge one of the most sought-after venues in Western Washington. Let us help you create memorable experiences for all of your guests and offer you a seamlessly perfect day!  Accommodates 10-200 guests.”

MY THOUGHTS: Theme: Golden Delicious. Not only because there were green apples featured as part of every detail, but the green in combination with the whites and golds, made this venue original and fun looking! As I always say: Live Life! The Ceremony site looked just dreamy, and I absolutely LOVED the flower wreath hanging, most certainly placed in that spot to nicely frame the bride and groom standing together.

Sunday’s Planner for COLUMBIA WINERY: Jen Leslie Events // Jen Leslie //

FROM COLUMBIA WINERY: “What’s new at Columbia Winery…..EVERYTHING!
Come see our newly renovated event space and be amazed!

The winery is nestled in the heart of Woodinville Wine Country and offers multiple unique settings perfect for any style of wedding, including indoor and outdoor locations as well as our beautiful Barrel Room. Your wedding is one of the most important events of your lifetime, and there’s no better place to celebrate than Columbia Winery. Accommodates 225 guests.”

MY THOUGHTS: Yes, Yes, Yes to the Pacific Coast Refinement Theme!!! As Jen put it “Close your eyes and hear the waves crashing, smell the salty sea air.” I fell in love with every little intricate detail and the color palette as soon as I set my eyes on the room. Dusty blue, sage green and cream with wood adorned the place, along with beautiful floral arrangements and a dead gorgeous ceremony site outdoors. One word to describe it: Timeless!

Sunday’s Planner for DELILLE CELLARS: Every Last Detail // Stephanie Wilson //

FROM DeLILLE CELLARS: “Located on a private ten-acre estate, overlooking the Sammamish Valley in Woodinville’s wine country, The Chateau offers an atmosphere of rural European elegance for a variety of events, accommodating 2 to 200 guests. One of the Unique features of DeLILLE CELLARS Is that we only host one event per day, giving you all of the leisure and privacy you deserve on your special day. The quality of our venue is matched only by the elegance of our wines. DeLILLE CELLARS is the only winery in the world to be listed on the “Top 100” Listsin the Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast Magazine two years in a row.”

MY THOUGHTS: IF I were to get married again, I would be torn between the DeLille Cellars, Columbia Winery and JM Cellars – these 3 fit my personality and style perfectly. The Chateau was decorated by Stephanie with the European Charm theme in mind. Her inspiration came from the beautiful countrysides of France and Italy, featuring tones of olive green, sage and melon bathed in gold and silver accents. My favorite corner of the venue was yet again the ceremony site. Guess what – it was by the fireplace!! A piano to its left and a live band towards the back, made this room surreal. They hit the nail on the ambiance, with their lush and elegant setting that made it hard to leave behind.

Sunday’s Planner for HOLLYWOOD SCHOOLHOUSE: Taylor’s Events // Alex Chalk //


“Located in the heart of the Woodinville Wine Valley, the Hollywood Schoolhouse, Est. 1912 has been lovingly restored to its turn of the century style and charm. The original Schoolhousewill create the perfect setting for your wedding. The Grand Ballroom is an elegant sweeping room with hardwood floors.  Accented by the original Schoolhouse brick walls, the Grand Ballroom shows off its charm with chandeliers, an antique bar, fireplace and plenty of natural light. The Upper Floor includes a bridal suite shrouded in natural light with a full view of the surrounding valley and Mount Rainer.”

MY THOUGHTS: Theme: Minimal, Yet Dramatic. A historic site, right in the heart of Woodinville, Hollywood Schoolhouse is the perfect wedding location for those who love brick walls and a warm atmosphere. The color palette that Alex put together matched perfectly the personality that this place has. Beautiful venue with lots of options to offer!

FROM THE REDHOOK BREWERY: “The Redhook Woodinville Brewery is also home to our Forecasters Public House. The brew pub features 24 taps of the freshest Redhook beers around, including brewery-only, exclusive small batch beers. Grab a pint and something to eat inside, or check out our huge outside patio for fun under the sun. In the summer, enjoy our Moonlight Cinema series in the grassy bowl outside the pub. Nothing beats sitting outside with friends and sharing some Redhook’s. To see more info on these events, check out the events tab.”
