The Winsome Grace

After years of restoration, Duane and Jeannie Bartel have transformed the old church on Washington Street in Sumner into The Winsome Grace LLC wedding venue.

A Victorian manor built in 1883 was bought in 1995 and the Bartel’s have spent years restoring it. The Bartel’s hope this building can once again become the heart of the Sumner community where young couples can begin a new life together, loved ones now gone can be celebrated, families can gather and worship.

And in 2011, the Bartel’s were married in this old church.

The Winsome Grace is open to celebrate weddings, receptions, retirement parties, award ceremonies, recitals, family reunions, funerals and memorial services, ladies night out, luncheons and community events.

The venue has been open since August 2013 but the grand opening will be on February 22, 2014.

Address: 1313 Washington Street in Sumner.

Phone: 360-451-2045.



Hours: Call to set up and appointment for a tour.
