The venue offers space for 260 people with rentable patios and lawn areas for outdoor events. A rental can include use of a kitchen, tables, chairs and audio visual equipment. There's also 70 acres of open space with three miles of walking trails.
Fees for an indoor wedding event are $2,000 for eight hours, which includes setup and cleanup. Outdoor weddings can be hosted at the site for $400.
KIRO Radio's John Curley thinks any groom who can talk his bride into this wedding venue option, as opposed to a more pricey one, will have a good future.

"I have to say that if you can get the wife, or then the fiance, to agree to this, you have got 50 years of a happy marriage ahead of you," says John. "That is a couple in for the long haul."
Guest host Feliks Banel says he thinks the people running Brightwater should get props for trying to bring in some revenue through the site.
"Government gets criticized for being wasteful with resources," he says. "Here, a government agency that runs this Brightwater Plant, they're trying to make some revenue and so they're getting criticized for it. I have to speak up for that, having worked in government before and tried to raise revenue through non-traditional means, I think we should note they're trying. I think it's good they're trying."
