We've Set a Date!

Duncan and I have set a date for our wedding! We'll be married next year in November- 11/5/11 to be exact, which I happen to think it a pretty awesome date. I was doing some research on wedding locations and instantly fell in love when I discovered the Georgetown Ballroom. I knew from the website photos alone that it was the perfect place for us and seeing it in person only confirmed it more. There are two huge rooms with exposed brick and tons of charm. There's also a beautiful courtyard area that we'll use if the usual rainy November weather decides to be nice for us. There are colorful lanterns hanging from the room where we'll be married and later dance the night away. There are unique old signs throughout the venue including a 'Jolly Roger' lit up sign above the stage, a 'Chop Suey' sign and other amazing surprises around each corner. We have lots of ideas about how to decorate the tables, but the rest of the venue is set as is which is huge!Georgetown BallroomGeorgetown BallroomWe've known for years that our colors would definitely have to be purple and green. We'll be using various shades of each, but since we'll be wed in the fall we're focusing on deeper, richer shades like olive green and plum. Duncan and Molly Vivi Dot was recently featured in University Link Magazine (the one with Joel McHale on the cover). Duncan mentioned that he wanted to wear a slim fit, style suit like the on on this cover in our wedding. I'd be the last person to complain about going for a McHale look so I was so excited to see that Gilt Group had amazing deals on slim fit Italian suits today in their first ever wedding sale. Now we're just crossing our fingers that it works out! Duncan's SuiteOh my goodness he's going to be sooo handsome!!
Now that we have over a year we're having a lot of fun during this stage where we are thinking of lots of fun ideas, but aren't having to actually act on much quite yet. I'll be sharing more as our ideas are executed. Thanks for coming along with me on this once in a lifetime journey!Pin It

Oh, Seattle! Our first place was down on the water in Wallingford in the lower level of a big house. Our landlord lived above us. Our space used to be an old gas station so it has a covered drive through right on a corner. Between UW and Gas Works park! LOVED the view. HATED how cold it got without insulation.

Our second place was the old Queen Vista Apt. complex that has since been remodeled and maybe renamed? It was right by the Trader Joe's in Queen Anne on Queen Anne Ave. I loved living so close to all the action!

Brett still dreams of moving back but with kids we'd probably choose Ballard or the Green Lake area. What part of Seattle did you guys land in?

Both places sound so awesome, Rachel! Duncan is literally at Gas Works park with the pup this second. I wish I could have joined him for his first trip there, but I'm stuck working for another couple of hours.
I grew up in Lake Forest Park (near the north end of Lake Washington) and later went to UW - so I lived in the U District for those 4 years. After 8 years in San Francisco I'm back and living in Ballard for the first time which is pretty amazing so far! We are renting the cutest brick house on a street with all brick houses and grassy front yards. It's pretty dreamy! I highly recommend that you move back here pronto!
