Beatiful Outdoor Venue, An Eventective User from Yakima, WA

The Yakima Area Arboretum is a beautiful out door venue. It is located conveniently close to the freeway yet far enough away that you don't even see the cars. There is also a building in which you can have the food set up and then we had a buffet style tables lined up. There are at least a dozen different areas of the Arboretum in which you can choose to have your reception. There are over 30 acres of lawn, trees and display gardens to choose from. Our wedding took place in front of a small fountain made of natural stone and all of this area was surrounded by various trees. It was very private and very, very beautiful. What is even more amazing is that most of these fabulous trees are labeled so you can know what kind of tree you are getting your picture under. As stated by the Arboretum staff themselves, "Every attempt is made to keep the trees, plants, and display gardens labeled, but theft of markers does occur. Trees will either be marked with an in ground plaque, or with hanging labels. The labels are small silver tags found on the south side lower branches of the tree, about chest high." You can really tell from the look and beauty of the Arboretum that it is will maintained and very much loved. This is the venue that great memories are made by loved ones, and remembered for the rest of their lives. I highly recommend it.

Separate your events from others by surrounding yourself with art in historic downtown Ellensburg. When entering Gallery One, the first thing you notice is how light fills the whole space thanks to our floor to ceiling windows across the entire front of the building. Our open and inviting first floor leads up to our mezzanine where you can continue to peruse the exhibition currently on display or enjoy overlooking the art and handcrafted goods on the floor below. When you ascend our stairs and reach the top floor, it opens up to a spectacular skylight right above the center of the gallery that illuminates the entire space. The old hand-painted lettering on the doors of the studios and classrooms that border the gallery evokes a time when the businesses occupied the space over 50 years ago. Gallery One also boasts a lovely, fully enclosed courtyard just off of our large kitchen which will help you meet the culinary needs of your event. Our 5,000 sq ft facility is beautiful and unique and will make any occasion extra special.
