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.
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!
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.
