" her dream wedding"
Posted on 6/28/2011 by mbutler1 from Yakima, Washington
My new bride still tears up at the what she calls her dream wedding. When i called the Tracy Castle I wasn't sure what I was suppose to expect but once I spoke to Julie and toured the beautiful facility I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed. The staff went way beyond what I expected to see that we were taken care of. We showed up and before we left we had taken care of everything from ordering the flowers to having a wedding cake like no other. The staff at the Tracy Castle really seemed to have a understanding of everything that we needed even saving me from a disaster because of poor planning on our part going the extra mile when my best man almost didn't make it. The food was outstanding , excellent, the staff professional and courteous if you are looking for some where to get married I couldn't praise the Tracy Castle and their staff enough once again excellent job Tracy Castle thank you for making our dream come true. Sincerely Mr. and Mrs. Butler.

First of all I have to say, WOW. The wedding went off better than I could have ever hoped and it was more beautiful that I could have ever imagined.
What was already a spectacular venue became a truly magical place from God's dusting of snow. It really took the wedding to completely different level.
Steve and I truly enjoyed working with you on our special day. It was relaxed, enjoyable and memorable. Thank you for all your hard work and investment into making our day an absolute success. Our gratitude cannot be expressed.
Thank you to all of the hard-working staff for the incredible day that was honestly a dream come true.
Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Jones

The wedding was honestly the best day of my life so far and I am just so completely happy that everything went so well. We have shared the pictures that we have and everyone has asked who our photographer was because they are so impressed by them! I have let everyone know about the castle. Sean, you really are a talented photographer!

Dear Bart and Sean,
We can’t begin to thank you enough for the beautiful wedding! Stephanie told me, as she was getting ready to head for the airport, that it was perfect. Absolutely everything she wanted it to be!! She really wanted a fun lively wedding and that’s exactly what she got. J The slide show was a huge hit. The slides of the wedding were so beautiful. I can hardly wait to see all the pictures!!
Josh was also very nice and helpful with so many things. I really appreciated all he did.
Your entire staff was great. I’ve sent emails to Sandy and Cathi thanking them. The cake and flowers were exactly what Stephanie wanted. Again, perfect!! They really listened and put in a lot of effort to get it right.
Again, thank you from all of us.
Rick,Kathy & Family

On behalf of my wife and I, the grandparents of Suzanne, we wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciated the way you handled their wedding last Saturday, and took such a personal interest to see that every thing went along in the manner in which it was planned. You and your staff are to be commended for the way you take care of every detail.
I personally wanted to thank you for thinking enough of my wife and I to fix a place for us to sit and view the dance floor, it may seem like a little thing to most people, but it meant a lot to us to be able to see all of our children and grandchildren dancing and having a wonderful time.
Your Castle and setting is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen for holding a wedding. Again thanks for taking such good care of our granddaughters beautiful wedding.
Austin and Mary

I just wanted everyone to know what an exceptional job they did for Jaime and Bryan’s wedding. It has been an experience I will never forget, from the first time we met themn until we were driving away after the reception. You made us feel like family.
They don’t have enough adjectives to describe the staff, the castle and the whole experience! I have had so many family members and friends tell me what a wonderful time they had, what a fun party, what great staff, what a beautiful setting for a wedding, and what fantastic food! Everything was perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t know about you when our oldest daughter got married.
I asked Jaime and Bryan the day after the wedding, “ Now that everything is over, would you change anything?” They both said, “Not a single thing, except to have it last longer, since they had such a wonderful time.”
Thank you again for making this experience of a lifetime and truly a fairytale dream come true for Jaime.
"THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!"

It was an absolute fairy tale! I can’t thank you enough! All your recommendations were perfect and your surprises were amazing gifts that we will treasure forever! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Your Staff in all their separate departments were wonderful to work with and I hope you all had as much fun as we did. Following is a quote that describes my feelings perfectly: “Words can say so little when someone has done so much, but I thank you with all my heart.”
Thank you so, so Much!

Jack and I had our wedding at Tracy Castle last month. The location is very beautiful! The other locations we looked at were nice, but it didn't compare to the architectural details we fell in love with. This was the only location we found that was equally beautiful both inside and out.
Our dinner was delicious and our guests enjoyed it a great deal. We were able to treat my Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids to reflexology, which they said was heavenly. Jack and I received a couple's massage the next morning that was fabulous. The girls and I were able to have our hair and makeup professionally done at the castle in the bridal suite. It really relieved the anxiety I had of all my girls showing up on time and ready. It was a lot of fun getting ready together and just added to the happiness of my day.
The options to choose from are many. We opted for the horse-drawn carriage and a string quartet in addition to the hair, makeup, reflexology and morning massage. The breakfast was awesome also! We were able to have whatever we wanted!
We both have very busy lives at work and to be able to find such a beautiful place with such friendly and accommodating people that offered everything we needed wasn't something we thought existed. But, we found it! We literally only needed to choose what we wanted, what we didn't want and they took it from there. Our wedding day was wonderful and it has left a permanent smile on our faces.
"110% Happy with Tracy Castle wedding"
Posted on 4/2/2008 by gqwebguy from Sammamish, Washington
We were recently married in February and chose the Tracy Castle after reviewing several other locations and venues that were more 'traditional' like churches, community centers, etc. None of those measured up to the beauty and elegance of the Tracy Castle. This was evident as we watched the jaws drop and eyes pop while greeting our guests entering The Castle. It was important to us that the wedding and the reception could all be handled in one location. The Castle came through with flying colors as our 250+ guests had more than ample room to view the ceremony and then eat, dance and mingle in a beautiful setting.
We found the staff to be very helpful in making suggestions on food, music and accommodations. All of which turned out perfect as guests made comment after comment about how impressed they were with all the amenities. Food and beverage was plentiful as well as yummy and the interior and grounds were impeccably decorated.
The photographer and videographer were everywhere and worked hard to capture all the great moments. We were more than pleased with the results of their work and have already finalized our selections for our album and additional photos to share with others.
The Tracy's were extremely gracious hosts and made a point to make sure all our guests felt 'at home'. On a day when a lot of things could go wrong we could see the extra efforts by the Tracy's to ensure that things went according to plan. Having all the various entities such as photographer, caterer, flowers, pastor, etc. coordinated under one roof made things soooo much easier.
Overall the setting is stunning (as mentioned above) and the flexibility of the amenities such as menu make this one of the best experiences we've had. Our only disappointment was our honeymoon which we spent in St. Thomas where it stormed the entire time.
We recommend the Tracy Castle and encourage you to visit before making a decision. Definitely worth the trip!
