I've been so excited to do this post! Here it is: my weddinve venue, Pravda Studios on Capitol Hill here in Seattle.
I wanted a really huge, unique and dramatic space and this fit the bill perfectly. It's a 5,000 sq. ft. NYC loft-style studio with 14 foot ceilings and natural hardwood floors windows everywhere that gives it that "urban-chic" feeling (and they have air-conditioning, of course!). I really wanted the wedding here in Seattle since about 90% of the people who will be coming live here in the city and I LOVE my city, and of course wanted to be married in the heart of it.
They don't just do weddings though, they actually are a film/photography studio. Neiman Marcus and Zac Posen recently did a runway show here and Francis Ford Coppola a held a private party here too (so perfect for my Italian family!)
They have five caterers I can choose from (all look delicious) and the wedding coordinator I met with there, Callie, was fabulous. I'm excited to work with her.
And the reason I chose to do this post today - it is exactly a year from my wedding date, July 31, 2010! My friend Deanna (who was married July 30, 2005, so we'll have the same "wedding weekend") wrote me a facebook note saying happy -1 anniversary!
Feel free to post any comments or creative ideas you have for the space! It's a totally open plan so I choose exactly how I want it set up.
And on that note, have a wonderful weekend! Nick and I will be out on the water all weekend to celebrate Seafair here in Seattle and watch the Blue Angels! Love them!
