  • On top of a spectacular view and backdrop for the ceremony, the building itself is beautiful. There are moments inside as well as outside that provide great pictures either in a cozy nook or against an industrial concrete wall with light casting down from the skylights above. ESB has a private room for getting ready in: equipped with table, chairs, and a large mirror. ESB provides ceremony chairs that are set up to your layout, that do not require you to put away when your are done. The restrooms in the lobby are very nice. All in all, I highly recommend this venue for the exterior and interior views as well as the amenities that are provided.

  • This was the absolute best place for our wedding. The staff was so helpful and accommodating! On a beautiful summer day, it was lovely to have tables outside and inside, for our guests to comfortably socialize and be able to enjoy the incredible view. It was the most perfect day, and this venue and staff helped to make it so!

  • I cannot stress enough how wonderful it was to rent the ESB from 9 AM to midnight on my wedding day. Being able to get there early set up decorations and actually have time to eat lunch and get ready and take pictures before the ceremony was amazing, and so easy. The staff that is there to help you through the day, by setting up chairs and making sure everything is going well. They were very professional and very sweet people. I had the most perfect wedding I could ever possibly imagine, and it was in part to being able to have the ceremony outside while having the reception inside and outside. The flow of the space is perfect. Oh by the way it is so cost efficient! Literally the best deal you will ever find with such an amazing view. I cannot stress enough how beautiful it is!

  • We chose to have our wedding here at the ESB. The view is breathtaking, which is great for pictures. The price is reasonable and the staff are helpful. We had some discrepancies with the alcohol dept but the manager showed us he cared and handled everything well. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend this venue.

  • We had our daughter's wedding reception at the Environmental Services Building (ESB) overlooking the Puget Sound. We were able to come early in the morning with a helper crew to set up and there was plenty of parking for guests. Since it was a beautiful sunny (but not too hot) day on July 31st, 2016, we had planned for dining inside as well as outside, and our DJ and the Cash Bar attendant were outside under the covered courtyard where we had dancing later. The DJ could easily move inside and out utilizing the sliding glass door which remained open to the lovely view. Guests could mingle, go into the lobby for food, restrooms, and in the dining area as well as outside. There was plenty of room for the bridal party to get dressed in "ladies" and "gentlemen" rooms off of the lobby, prior to heading to the church for the wedding and then back again for the reception. Everything went smoothly and we were so happy to have the event there. It was beautiful, the guests loved it, our da... Read more

  • The venue was incredibly beautiful. And a great price. I would recommend this place to any bride looking for an afforadable, but beautiful setting with diverse terrain for photos. And you can use your own cater which is always a plus. The employees were great to work with as well. I had a wonderful experience.

  • I loved this venue- great place for an outdoor wedding with an absolutely gorgeous surrounding. The staff was very easy to work with leading up to the wedding. They were great in implementing my plan for floor layout and availability of the building when needed. Also, were available to answer my questions in the months leading up to the wedding. The only downside to this venue was that you had to use the chamber's bay grill bartending services. The coordinator there had been great and helpful leading up to the wedding but when it finally came down to the wedding night they did not have champagne available as planned and were not eager to compensate me for their mistake in any way.

    Thank you for your great review of the facility. We are sorry to hear about the situation with Chambers. We will definitely pass the info along to them. Congratulations on your special day! We wish you both the best!

  • The building offers an amazingly unbelievable and beautiful view of the Puget Sound. We rented the whole facility on a Saturday from 9-midnight and paid just $2,300 plus the refundable $500. The staff let me and my maid of honor test out some centerpieces one day without charging us and were quick to answer any questions-- no matter how odd they were. The staff was extremely flexible. They let us hang paper lanterns from the indoor lighting and allowed us to increase the number of hours we wanted to rent the facility after already putting down our down payment. The staff was friendly and professional and was present but didn't meddle on the wedding day. We held our ceremony outside on a day that had hourly weather changes (rain, crazy wind, thunder, lightning, etc.). We really didn't want to hold the ceremony inside and the weather report predicted the rain and clouds would clear by 5, just in time for our 6 pm wedding. The staff was kind enough to allow us up to 3pm the day of the wed... Read more
