If you are looking for a Tacoma wedding venue that is easy to get to and incredibly beautiful, Events on 6th is the perfect place! This gorgeous wedding venue has a gothic church and mid-century modern reception hall. You can have both your wedding ceremony and reception here, and there is a natural flow to the space that works really well.
I love photographing weddings in Tacoma, so I am especially excited to feature this wedding venue on the blog.
Events on 6th has two dressing rooms – perfect for the bride and groom to get ready separately with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. The décor is elegant and simple. This space makes for some beautiful getting ready photos before you walk down the aisle. I love capturing the bride getting her makeup done and putting on her dress. It makes it all so real!
There is also a quiet sitting room that is perfect for parents or grandparents to use while everyone is getting ready.
Going to The Chapel
The gothic church at this Tacoma wedding venue has huge wood doors so you can make a grand entrance. Inside are high vaulted ceilings and angled wood pews. There are traditional stained-glass windows that let in natural light. The result is a breathtaking space where your guests can watch you exchange your vows. The aisle is easy to decorate with flower petals, vintage lanterns, and floral arrangements.
The chapel was built in 1924, with additions made in the 1960s. Since the building was renovated in 2010, it has a mix of traditional architecture with modern details. It is truly a one of a kind wedding venue! The stonework outside and architectural details throughout are made for bride and groom portraits.
Cocktails, Dinner, and Dancing
There are a couple of places in the venue to host a cocktail hour for your guests. The venue has a lounge and courtyard that are ideal for setting up a bar and letting your guests mingle. Cozy seating next to a fireplace is perfect for guests who are not ready to hit the dance floor. And the courtyard has such cute greenery and string lights. I love capturing candid moments of you and your new spouse greeting guests and sharing a drink with them after your ceremony.
There is also a kitchen for your caterers and a buffet room for them to set everything up. The mid-century modern reception hall is a versatile space that you can use for dinner and dancing. It can seat up to 160 guests comfortably, with room for a dance floor. There are string lights that set the tone for a party!
Events on 6th is conveniently located in Tacoma. It is easy for your guests to find, even if they are from out of town. The venue is available to book on Fridays and Saturday throughout the year, with special discounts during the off-season.
There are a few beautiful places just a short drive away if you want outdoor bride and groom portraits. Wright Park and Point Defiance Park are nearby, or we can go to the Ruston Way Waterfront for some portraits by the water. That way you have the best of both worlds – an indoor venue in case of rain, and great opportunities for outdoor photos if the sun is shining.
