Most Seattle wedding venues that I have photographed over the years make me feel like I’m right in the thick of it. Right in the core of the urban vibe of city-livin’. Now, quite a few of the couples that book me aren’t wanting that vibe, and so maybe you’re here because you’re not wanting that SUPER urban vibe either. Enter – the Sodo Park wedding venue just south of downtown Seattle.
Although you are minutes from downtown with easy parking (WHAT??), the venue itself feels miles away. Perfect, right??
Now, a Sodo Park wedding isn’t cheap by any means. But if it has the right vibe for your wedding day, if it’s the perfect sort of location you’ve been dreaming about, how can you get better than that. Am I right, or am I right?
That said! The venue has a few locations for portrait sessions, but not many (in all honesty). If you are planning on getting ready in downtown Seattle, I recommend you stop by a location or two prior to hopping over to Sodo Park. And if you are planning on getting ready right at the venue, let’s hop in a car and pop over to somewhere like Occidental Square for your portraits. It’ll be gorgeous, I promise 🙂
The wedding below from Jenivee & Edward doesn’t have those Occidental Square portraits. Nope. But they instead to keep their wedding day super simple and just stay on site. We simply headed into the alley right beside the venue and walked around a bit behind the venue itself and back into that hallway that connects to a business beside it. It really gave a cool industrial vibe, wouldn’t you say??
Whether you are considering having everything done on-site or if you are wanting to head off for a little bit, I can certainly help point you in the right direction. And that direction all starts with how many hours you’ve booked your Seattle wedding photographer for.
Have a look from these wedding photos at Sodo Park, though. This will give you a great start as you figure all of that out. I’ve talked your ear off by now. Let’s get straight to the good stuff, shall we??
