Winding Path Gardens is a stunning outdoor wedding venue located in the Pacific Northwest in Arlington, Washington (Snohomish County). We are located almost perfectly between Seattle and Bellingham, approximately 40 miles north of Seattle and 50 miles south of Bellingham, WA.

Environmentally Sustainable Events

In 2020, while looking back, we realized we produced about 3 yards of garbage a weekend – most of it was plastic. Our newest mission is to drastically cut our impact on the environment. We are transitioning away from using plastic dinnerware at all. Now every event will have an 8-piece set of real dinnerware… say goodbye to plastic and hello to a more sophisticated dining experience!
