Getting to Seattle


For guests traveling from out of town, we'd suggest booking a flight into either SeaTac (SEA) which is 30 minutes south of Seattle, or Paine Field (PAE) in Everett which is 30 minutes north of Seattle.

We received a group discount rate through Alaska Airlines for a 5% discount on all fares for travel dates 7/20/24 - 8/3/24. Please visit and use code ECMK502 when booking for the O'Rourke and McCool Wedding.


Ubers and Lyft are available from the airport or you can also use the Link Light Rail which has several stops into Seattle. Renting a car may be a good idea if you are looking to explore the city or surrounding areas or if you are planning to stay on the east side of Seattle.

The reception venue is located in Redmond. When booking an Airbnb or VRBO home we recommend looking at the Redmond, Kirkland or Bellevue areas for homes to be in close proximity to the reception. There are lots of beautiful homes to choose from to fit your needs.
