WHERE: The downtown Renaissance Hotel

WHAT: Well it may be a little early as far as R74 and the vote is concerned, but we love the confidence of New Chapter's Jenny Harding and her crew (which includes the Greater Seattle Business Association). They've gathered more than 60 vendors in more than 25 categories (planning a wedding, hosting a wedding, buying real estate, legal and financial support) to help same-sex couples navigate the world of "I do" and everything that comes after. 

Says Harding, "It is important for couples to feel equally celebrated and respected while they make their plans to spend their lives together. The vendors in this showcase will be hand-selected based on involvement in the community, price range, and unique style."

What's not to love?

WHEN: Saturday, October 27 from noon to 5. There is no cost to attend. That's right: free!
