Wedding in Snohomish at Swans Trail Farms Venue

Just a short drive from Seattle lies the lovely city of Snohomish. The city offers a delightful blend of history, culture, and scenic beauty. In its historic downtown area, you’ll find yourself surrounded by beautifully preserved Victorian-style buildings, charming antique shops, boutiques, and cozy cafes and restaurants. It’s the perfect place to wander, shop, and indulge in some delicious food.

Snohomish also boasts a vibrant arts and culture scene, with local art galleries, theaters, and live music venues adding to its cultural allure. The Historic Downtown Snohomish Arts District is a must-visit, showcasing the talents of local artists and hosting events like art walks.

For Kate and me, Snohomish has become a favorite destination, especially during the summertime. Instead of heading into Seattle, we love bringing our out-of-town guests to Snohomish for a truly authentic Pacific Northwest experience. With its picturesque countryside scenery, delicious dining options, and welcoming atmosphere, it’s a perfect alternative to Seattle to really get immersed in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

4 helpful tips when considering Swans Trail Farms for your wedding venue

  • Photography: Wide open space is sometimes too much of a good thing. Bright sunny days offer little available shade at a Swans Trail Farms. This poses challenges for flattering portraits, especially during the ceremony, bride & groom, wedding party, and family portraits. Hiring an experienced wedding photographer who can handle these lighting conditions is crucial.
  • Noise Ordinance: The venue is subject to noise ordinance so the party may need to end before you’re ready for it to end.
  • Alcohol Policy: The venue has a very restrictive policy about bringing outside alcohol that is not served by a licensed bartender.
  • Extra Vendor Charges: Some vendors may consider Swans Trail Farms a destination location and charge a fee.
