waterfront

This could be your wedding. This could definitely be your Weddings on the Waterfront experience.

WHERE: It at begins at Bell Harbor International Conference Center and continues at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront hotel, the Edgewater, Argosy Cruises (docked outside of Bell Harbor), the World Trade Center Seattle, and finally, the Seattle Aquarium where doors open at 6:30 for a celebration on the outdoor deck.

WHAT: Think of it as a weddings and events show-and-tell on Seattle’s waterfront, where the Olympics, Elliott Bay, the Seattle skyline, and, if you’re luck, Mount Rainier can all be guests at your big event.

Fifty of the area’s most trusted photographers, cake designers, wedding planners, and more will be on hand to discuss their specially priced wedding packages and tasting and open-house opportunities as well as insider advice about making the most out of this saltwater-edged part of the city.

WHEN: Sunday, July 22 from 3 to 9. Seems like a long way off? Maybe so, but for wedding vendors and those planning 2013 celebrations, it’s a boon.

‘We created this event to offer [couples] the opportunity to see Seattle’s waterfront in a way never before showcased,’ said Lacey Yantis, owner of Visions of Romance wedding photography and cofounder of Weddings on the Waterfront. ‘Wedding shows usually happen in January.’

‘Weddings on the Waterfront is designed to highlight our skyline and waterfront during the most beautiful time of the year in Washington,’ said Carna Lapping of Very Important Events, also a cofounder of the wedding show.
