This couple literally looked at every venue in the Seattle area to find just the perfect site for them. Nothing grabbed them until they wandered into Workshop 30 at the former Sandpoint Naval Base. In spite of the dirty windows, cracks in the walls, and industrial-looking ceiling (all of which enhanced the look of the space once we took control of it), they absolutely fell in love with the structural details and wouldn’t hear of going anywhere else. We now had the clean slate that they had been looking for to create their very own wedding! With the help of Rented Elegance, a lighting guru, and all the other vendors who made this wedding magical, this building was totally transformed into an elegant reception site like no other.
Megan and Bryan met in high school, dated 5.5 years, and had talked about getting married for a few years so they had a head start on what they wanted their wedding to be. Once the official planning began, everything fell easily into place. They wanted a formal church wedding and a beautiful reception where everyone had a great time.
I love reveals, and we were able to drape off the dining area so that when guests arrived, they entered into the cocktail area. When dinner was ready, the drapery was pulled back to reveal the beautifully set tables, the candle chandeliers, and the unique seating arrangement. Then we were able to showcase one more reveal as we pulled back the drapery to the dance floor. I love the anticipation of the guests when they see the beauty behind each draped area.
Dick’s burgers were the last surprise of the evening – and well received by the hungry dancers! The bride and groom exited through a sparkler send-off in a Vintage car. As I mentioned earlier, this reception was magical – and I am thrilled to have been a part of it!

THANK YOU’S:

Bride: Having mutual friends, I have known Merry Beth for quite some time and always wanted her to be my wedding planner. When the time finally came I think hiring Merry Beth was the best decision we made throughout the whole process. With our extremely unique venue we could NOT have pulled this off without the help of Merry Beth and her A+++ vendors she recommended. She helped us with every little detail and it really made us feel like we created our own wedding. Our wedding went off without a hitch and she kept us focused (and took away the stress!) throughout the entire planning process. Her ideas were fantastic, and when we walked into the reception I couldn’t believe my eyes, it was even more than I imagined. Many of our friends are still commenting on how that was the best wedding they have ever gone to – and it’s all because of Merry Beth. Merry Beth is the best wedding planner around!
