We found our Venue!!
After looking at about 4 venues (that were all jokes!), we finally found the one we've been waiting for! On Saturday Debbie (Michael's mom), Michael and I all went down to Seattle to look at the The Harbor Club. When we walked in, it took our breath away. We both knew the minute we walked in that this was the place! We were grinning from ear to ear and taken away by the gorgeous view of both downtown and of the water. We hadn't picked a date until we found the place we wanted. We had initally spoke about a Saturday wedding, but after some discussions we settled on a Sunday date. We didn't have a preference until the wedding coordinator at the venue stated that the 22nd of July was open and the weekend before Seafair, so there'd be less traffic. Instantly we said yes because that date is very special as it was Michael's grandma's birthday. Since she recently passed he has missed her so much. We felt that doing it on the 22nd was the perfect way to celebrate that date and to have his family and my family all together. We are SO excited to share that special day with everyone.
