Inspiration & Tips

We know that country weddings are having a moment, but city venues ALWAYS have a place in our hearts! They're convenient, classic, bustling, and they allow a lot of room for creativity. We have a few favorite city venues throughout the Inland Northwest, and today we're sharing them with you!

Barrister Winery

Barrister Winery is a one-of-a-kind venue located in the heart of downtown Spokane. Barrister's historic building is particularly unique because there are picturesque backdrops at every turn.  As you enter, Barrister features an urban garden that offers seasonal buds and blossoms all the way through October.  Bistro lights overhead create a romantic and tucked away garden.  As you walk in, Barrister's stunning 14' ceilings create a grand space rich with textures of aged wood beams and exposed brick, Romantically lit with wrought iron chandeliers and lighting that showcase the artwork within the gallery.  All of these features create a one-of-a-kind space that is perfect for any event!  Last, but not least, Barrister is the only venue that features award-winning Barrister wines.

Doubletree By Hilton Spokane City Center

Hotel ballrooms are one of the quintessential wedding venues, and while lots of people opt for outdoor venues these days, we think there's something to be said for how convenient it is to have everything for your wedding in one place. Not to mention room service, and not having to worry about the weather! Doubletree by Hilton at Spokane City Center offers all these things and more. Located in the heart of downtown Spokane, your guests will enjoy being just steps away from the beautiful Spokane River and the hustle and bustle of the city.
