About Yakima Area Arboretum
Set upon 46 acres of picturesque land, the Yakima Area Arboretum is a spectacular spot to tie the knot. Say “I do” in front of the lovely Japanese Garden Gateway or next to the Rose Garden’s charming gazebo, both of which are very romantic, or choose to have your ceremony in another area within the gorgeous arboretum. Once you’ve exchanged your first kiss as a married couple, escape for a bit to take beautiful pictures together as newlyweds—there’s no shortage of breathtaking places for you to use as a backdrop. Then celebrate your new marriage with all your loved ones, making use of the Gardenview and Solarium reception rooms, the atrium, and the expansive Founders Courtyard. The scenic courtyard can accommodate up to 250 guests, and features a magnificent pergola that you can decorate with lights, lanterns, tulle, or ribbons, though it is also gorgeous on its own. Your wedding at Yakima Area Arboretum will be a beautiful affair that you will be sure to remember for the rest of your life.

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.
