One of the best things about selling engagement rings is meeting the happy bride-to-be with her new ring. The couple usually returns for engagement sizing and to buy wedding bands. It’s an exciting time, and small talk regularly turns to wedding planning, particularly venues.
There are so many beautiful places in the Northwest to get married, and new places keep opening. Here are two new urban Seattle venues opening this summer:
The AXIS Pioneer Square is a totally refurbished 6,000 square foot space in one of Seattle’s most historic buildings. The former The Elliott Bay Bookstore space on 1st avenue has an event capacity of 400 (250 seated). The tall ceilings and brick arches bring a classic, nostalgic feeling to the Pioneer Square venue. If you have many out of town guests, the Axis is perfect for showing off historic Seattle.
Moving south on First avenue, we find The Foundry, another historic Seattle space reconditioned for weddings, meeting and other special events. The Foundry, originally a cooper and steal fabrication facility, is in the SODO neighborhood and seats 200, accommodating up to 500 cocktail style. The Foundry is the latest project by caterers Herban Feast, owners of the SODO Park event space.
When we hear about new Northwest weddings venues, we will be sure to post details and photos.
