Thanks for reading my guide about choosing the right fall and autumn wedding venue near Seattle. The big takeaway that I must emphasize for any fall wedding is to have a rainy weather plan. However, don’t let this stop you because the solution can be as simple as renting a large tent which most event rental companies rent for a reasonable price.

When the bride is a D.J you know you are in for a fun night. DeMyla and Trunel did not disappoint at their fun filled wedding at Within Sodo Seattle. Walking into the bride’s room you could feel the love and support from DeMyla’s family and friends. When DeMyla came out for her first look with her mother there was not a dry eye in the room. The love only grew as DeMyla and Trunel did their first touch and prepared to tie the knot. After that it was off to Within Sodo Seattle for the wedding ceremony. The couple was surrounded by love from family and friends as they said their vows and cemented their union.
With amazing food catered by Mama G’s Kitchen, the party was just getting started. Guests had so sing or dance for their table’s turn for the buffet leading to the best dinner I have seen yet. Everyone was singing, dancing, and celebrating. This was just the start through, with amazing speeches filled with wisdom and humor. The night wasn’t fully complete until D.J bride DeMyla went behind the booth and hosted an amazing dance party.
