Host Your Wedding in the Gardens

The Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden (HSBG) provides a lovely setting for a wedding ceremony. Because it is a living museum, restrictions have been placed on its use.

Please carefully review our guidelines and regulations to help you make your decision. If you use HSBG for your special event, we hope the setting will become a part of your very special memories.

Note: The HSBG is in close proximity to SeaTac International Airport. Landings and take-offs occur frequently and unpredictably. The sound of the planes can be disruptive. Please visit and spend some time in the Garden to be sure you are comfortable with the overhead flight noise.

The fee for a wedding in the Celebration Rose Garden is $150 per hour, with a 3-hour minimum. Half of the total cost is due at the time the reservation is made. This locks-in the date and time of your event. Full payment must be received 30 days prior to the event. Please make all checks payable to the Highline Botanical Garden Foundation.

Send your initial check and later balance to: 
Highline Botanical Garden Foundation
P.O. Box 69384
SeaTac, WA 98168

You may also make the deposit and the final payment by PayPal following the instructions in the Weddings section of the Garden Website.

For additional information, call Wedding Coordinator, Susan Gallotte at 206-683-1209 or email her at She will be glad to arrange a planning tour and answer any questions you might have about weddings at the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden and use of the SeaTac Community Center for receptions.

The costs include use of the electricity, if required, and one Wedding Coordinator or Garden Representative will be available on-site at least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony, throughout the ceremony to ensure that all promised services are provided and to oversee use of the Garden. The wedding party is free to use areas within the Garden for photo opportunities. The Wedding Coordinator will be available for ½ hour after the ceremony to confirm that the Garden has been restored to its pre-event condition.

These photos were taken at an actual wedding in the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden by photographer Kevin Zansler.   The wedding of Samantha and Rodrigo took place in June on a Sunny Sunday in the Celebration Rose Garden.   Both before and after the wedding there were photo opportunities in other sections of the Garden to highlight the occasion.   This lovely setting offers a wonderful back-drop for weddings.   Based on these pictures, we hope you will consider the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden for your wedding. Note that although these lovely photos were taken by Kevin Zansler, parties are free to hire their photographer of choice for their special day.
