Thornewood Castle ♥


Thornewood Castle is a 500-year-old Tudor Gothic historic site known as
“The house that love built.”

Thornewood Castle was shipped over from England and re-assembled on the shore of American Lake by one of Tacoma’s lumber barons as a gift for his cherished wife.  Warm, elegant, timeless – certainly a one-of-a kind space for your wedding reception or special event.

There is truly nothing like Thornewood for a wedding reception in the whole northwest!

Features:  a walled, formal garden for your ceremony, antique furnishings, tables & chiavari dining chairs, fireplaces, exceptional woodwork, as well as service  kitchen, free parking, and white wood chairs for a garden ceremony.  Thornewood also offers bed and breakfast rooms for you and your guests.

“Annie Butcher was in charge of my daughter’s wedding at Thornewood Castle on July 14. I felt it was important to let you know how pleased my husband and I were with her and her work. Our event was a seamless and lovely success, largely due to her sense of organization and professionalism. This was my last daughter to be married, but look forward to working with Annie sometime in the future.”
