Seattleites: stop your venue search! You are not going to find a better deal than this: a wedding reception at Urban Light Studios, a wicked photography package AND a rehearsal dinner venue in a brand new Ballard Ave. space for $6K or less!
Urban Light Studios' wildly eclectic 4000 square foot venue puts on some the best events in town — so much so that we booked the space for our Offbeat Empire party coming up October 7 as part of our weekend at Geek Girl Con. Seriously, Ariel could not stop talking about the space and how much she loved the staff.
Their crack event staff are friendly, honest people who totally understand the needs (and occasional mania) of the Seattle offbeat bride. So what could make it even better? Urban Light Studios said “to hell with it, let's wrap all our best stuff into one ridiculous package and give people who book early a crazy deal.” Keep reading to peep that crazy deal for yourself.
We love the Tiki Room with the 9′ tall stuffed lion, the china room and the log cabin… it all amounts to wedding porn at its finest, as we've have said before. Speaking of wedding porn… because they're also a commercial photo studio during the week they have a kick-ass team of staff photographers available to shoot your big day using all the same professional studio lighting and equipment.
That's right, a weekend wedding and reception at Urban Light Studios, with their full photography package (including the popular live “photo booth” fashion shoot for your guests) preceded by a rehearsal dinner at The Cellar — a private speakeasy wine bar hidden beneath the newly restored Kolstrand Building on Ballard Ave.
Okay, so how much? Try around $6500 for a Saturday evening wedding at Urban Light Studios, including site rental, photo package, and The Cellar rehearsal dinner site rental. Everything. AND you get to extend both your parties — a FREE hour of overtime at both Urban Light Studios and The Cellar.
The Ridiculous Wedding Package Deal includes:
- Priority booking of available wedding/rehearsal dates
- 8 hours venue time + 1 free hour of overtime
- 5 hours Cellar venue time + 1 free hour overtime
- Free use of downstairs Urban Light Studios studio and gallery (normally $350)
- 8 consecutive hours of wedding photography coverage
- 4 hours of photo booth photography
- All images provide on disc with unlimited usage for family/friends
- Optional rehearsal dinner photographer for $700 (4 hours)
Notes: $1000 catering minimum at The Cellar (exclusive catering by Shooby Doo). Option of four preferred caterers or outside caterer with fee. Urban Light Studios and The Cellar bookings subject to availability and there's a 50% non-refundable deposit required at booking.
And, oh, the savings continue to rack up. Urban Light Studios allows you to bring in your own alcohol for both spaces (big money saver) and the package is even less for daytime weddings on Friday, Sunday or Saturday. And if you want to check out Urban Light Studios, they host a big Art Walk open house on the 2nd Friday each month, 6-10p. Or give them a call and set up your own tour. And say hi to Lamar the Lion for us.
People that book their Ridiculous Wedding Package Deal get priority selection for the most popular 2012 dates, which are already vanishing fast. So seriously, don't wait on this — snap up this amazing deal right now!
