Northlake Church has two beautiful venues for your wedding
Unitarian Universalist principles support many beliefs including the right for all loving committed couples to wed. We welcome all guests, including LBGT, to celebrate in their own traditions. Our minister, Rev. Marian Stewart () is available to perform your ceremony, or you may invite your own minister or officiant. Any and all faiths welcome!
Conveniently located in downtown Kirkland, Northlake Church makes its beautiful facilities available to the greater community for weddings, celebrations of life, and rites of passage. We offer both our main sanctuary and a smaller, more intimate, chapel. You may rent either, or both, depending on your needs. Having the ceremony in the chapel and the reception in the sanctuary is a convenient way to hold your entire event in one location.
Our comfortable facility can be easily rearranged, making Northlake Church ideal for blending a ceremony into a reception and allowing creative use of the space.
Our main sanctuary seats 200 guests under a high canopy. It can be used for the ceremony, or for the reception, or for both. The reception tables are along the wall in this photo, and when the ceremony seating is removed, the tables can be centered, and you can arrange a dance floor in the center if you like. The dais can be used to seat the bridal party for the reception. The photo below shows the main sanctuary arranged for a reception, seating 150 guests. The venue is very flexible.

The Northlake campus also includes a beautiful, newly-restored, chapel seating 125 that is available for smaller wedding parties. The chapel was built in 1938 and has newly-restored fir floors and beautiful millwork. There is a large window at one end and a round stained glass window at the other end, and a loft offering additional seating for 25. You can arrange to have the ceremony in the chapel and then move to the sanctuary for the reception, or the chapel can be arranged as a combination ceremony/reception hall as shown in the photo below.
