Olympia, WA, USA < change city >



July, 2010 in Olympia

"Destination Wedding from Hell!
1. No photos allowed at ceremony.
2. No staff to set up reception hall.
3. Venue fees did not include any amenities.

Long story short..do not have a destination wedding in Olympia without a team of professionals."


Ceremony: ceremony
Reception: Abigail Stuart House-Woman's





904 Washington St SE
Olympia, WA 98501, US

"Our wedding was a nightmare and we wish we never got married in Olympia, or anywhere near the Olympia First Baptist Church. As a destination wedding, all plans were in place. Then, we were ambushed with the list of rules. This church does not allow photography, the staff behaved beyond rude to everyone, and the that's just the tip of the iceberg!"


Abigail Stuart House-Woman's

1002 Washington Street Southeast
Olympia, WA, United States

"Loved the Abigail Stuart House and charming atmosphere for photos. One tip is to hire a caterer with that provides tableclothes, hire a team to set up tables, hire a janitor, and....well the place is charming but no amenities are included! If you plan on using this place, hire a team otherwise the bride (like I was stuck doing), will be left to fend for herself."

"The hotel is disgusting and very old. We were very disappointed to have to stay here on our wedding night. The staff is nice, but the rest should be demolished."

"This is where the rehearsal dinner is going to be on Friday evening. Great Italian food! MM-MM--Good!"


Fish Tale Brew Pub

515 Jefferson Street Southeast
Olympia, WA, United States

"This is Josh's favorite brew house in Oly. I suspect Friday night might be the time to try a brew or two with Josh, but don't keep him out too late! He's got a big day on Saturday."



"Lake Fair is a carnival celabration that will be happening at the time of the wedding. It is just a couple of blocks from church and downtown activities to Lakefair, so put on your shorts and flip flops and enjoy some Olympia style fun in the sun!"
