-Outdoors for both ceremony + reception, ideally in the same place. Indoor back-ups are great but not a deal breaker. We're leaning towards tenting if it rains.
-In or near a wooded area. We love the trees! It doesn't necessarily matter what kind of tree they are- gardens are nice, too but hoping to have trees in or very near our scenery
-Where we can get boozy (allows liquor!) and dance under the stars
-Can stay past 11pm! We really don't want to end the party that early- we're looking for a late night shindig.
-And can hold 130-200 people
It's proving to be a tall order to get all of those in one location. I am wondering if there are any private properties that we can possibly rent out or somewhere not on the regular lists? Or maybe somewhere I just need to see in person. I'm open to any ideas!
These are a few places I've checked out in person that came close:
-Jardin del Sol: Beautiful, a few eyesores with the neighboring houses, but the real deal breaker was that they have a hard out at 10pm.
-Bella Luna Farms: Beautiful location but it was also THE most expensive location I've come across…anywhere. For reals.
-Wayfarer Farm: Looks gorgeous but they hold a strict capacity of 104 so it won't work for us.
-DeLille: Lovely grounds but they only allow music & dancing inside. And in a tiny room..
*And if anyone is interested in any of the above places and wants to hear more, just let me know- happy to share any info I have!
I'm also looking for an awesome wedding planner in the Seattle are who can help make our wedding ...happen!
I'd love any of your thoughts, recommends, suggestions!!
