The Chapel at Bastyr University is the most beautiful and unique venue for a wedding the greater Seattle area. Just visit the Bastyr University Website to see the pictures of the chapel to see why I would say this. As a wedding consultant I have worked many weddings in this chapel and I have not had a disappointed bride yet!
The staff are always helpful when I or the bride have questions that always pop up when you are planning a wedding. The staff respond quickly to phone calls and emails so that you can move forward with your plans. It is the best costumer service that I get at any wedding venue that I have worked at.
I never have had any problems with the venue itself including the sound system. If I do have questions during the rehearsal or on the wedding day a staff member is there to assist me.
The grounds at Bastyr are absolutely beautiful and great for those wedding photos. I also love that they have plenty of free parking for everyone!
I highly recommend this chapel to any couple looking for the church wedding of their dreams.

The chapel at Bastyr is gorgeous, it is a very elegant and formal setting. The acoustics are also amazing.
We chose to rent the chapel for our wedding ceremony. Although the chapel looked beautiful, we experienced some severe interference (screeching) during our ceremony. I have no idea why...maybe from the multiple microphones that were needed (at the podium, piano, and handheld mic with the officiant)? The interference occurred sporadically throughout the ceremony, producing some very awkward moments. A groomsman switched off the mic at the podium at one point, but this did not resolve the problem. The officiant did a good job of covering up his handheld mic, but the screeching continued. Towards the end of the ceremony, the screeching became so severe that the officiant had to switch off the handheld mic. This resulted in the latter part of our ceremony not being heard by our guests...including my parents who were sitting in the front row.
Please, if you are considering renting this chapel, assure that this problem has been resolved. I listened to a CD on the sound system 4 times before the wedding, and the music sounded amazing, so it must have been a problem with the microphones.
