We've had many requests for details about Jeny and Jeff's chic wedding at Gasworks Park/Seattle Aquarium last year. Since we didn't have a blog then, we wanted to share details of their fabulous wedding with you!
Last September we had the fantastic opportunity of working with Jeny and Jeff to create a memorable wedding ceremony with sweeping views of Seattle from Gasworks Park. With most of the guests having flown in from out of state, Jeny and Jeff certainly gave them an elegant and dazzling night to remember. Theirs was first event at the Seattle Aquarium since the remodel, complete with a floor-to-ceiling, oversized fish tank. While guests watched ferries pass by and the sun set, they noshed on roasted tomato bisque (served in shot glasses), Northwest oysters, pepper seared sirloin with gorgonzola, salmon Croques Monsieur, and Spicy Ahi Tuna Tartar on the Aquarium's back deck. While taking advantage of the fine wine selection provided personally by Jeff, guests were able to touch starfish and watch the jellyfish flutter by in the neon tanks.
A 9-piece Balkan band played during a plated meal of New York steaks and Alaskan Troll King Salmon, followed by an assortment of Trophy Cupcakes.
Nick and I had the eagle-eye viewing point from above the reception area and watched guests dance well into the night and gawk at the amazing fish tank. It was truly a night to remember!
