THE SIXTEENTH OF JULY
SAVE THE DATE!
IT'S FINALLY HERE!
Below is any and all information you might need for the wedding week and weekend. Did we mention we cannot wait to see you?
Also, like life right now, everything is fluid and no one should feel pressure to do anything they don't want to. Our main mission is to have all the people we love together and for everyone to have the best time possible. Please do whatever you need to to maximize said mission.
On Thursday evening, we'll be hosting a low-key, come as you are welcome bonfire on Alki Beach from about 7:30 to 9:30 PM. Come hang with other amazing humans (and the bride & groom). There's plenty of parking along Alki Avenue SW. Also, a restroom at the south (Alki Point) end of the beach.
There will be s'mores.
The approx. address for this event is: 2665 Alki Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116
NO OFFICIAL PLAN
Tom and Kari will be at their rehearsal dinner BUT know many of you will already be in town and likely will be looking to get after it. Below are a couple of "cool" and "hip" bars that Matt and Jane told us about if you're looking for a place to hang! (Any negative feedback can be sent to them directly. Reach out for their contact info).
Here are the bars:
Otter on the Rocks (West Seattle)
The White Swan Public House
M Bar ("for the fancy crowd" - Jane)
Local Terry Ave
The big one! Guests are invited to arrive at the Admiral's House any time after 3:29 PM. The ceremony will begin at 4 PM, followed by food, drinks, more food, and so much dancing. At around 10:30, we'll have to briefly pause the dancing to move over to the Almquist Winery for an after party. A bus will be making runs to this after party from the venue, but here's the winery's address for those choosing to drive: 198 Nickerson St, Seattle, WA 98109.
On Sunday, anyone who isn't sick of the two of us yet is invited to join our families for a very casual picnic in Gas Works Park (2101 N Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103) at 12pm. We'll have lawn games, light snacks, soft drinks, and (if tradition holds) at least one black eye in the group. If you'd like something a bit more substantial food-wise, there are a few great spots around Seattle (and near where many of you are staying) to grab something to-go and bring down to hang.
We'd suggest checking out:
Varsity Inn Restaurant (near Gas Works Park)
PCC Community Market (near Gas Works Park)
