Ceremony details

Our ceremony is going to be officiated by Reverend James Kubal-Komoto, a Unitarian Universalist minister at Saltwater Unitarian Universalist Church in South King County.

I hadn't given any thought to ceremony music until recently. I just booked this guy to play classical guitar during the ceremony. He says he'll play whatever we want--suggestions? I found him on Yelp, but if you're ever in the position of needing musicians, might I recommend the Musicians' Association of Seattle. You submit your request on their website and then musicians flood your email and voicemail with samples of their services. Really, the response has been quite something.

Things to do! Seattle edition

A brief list of fun things to do in Seattle:

The Underground Walking Tour in Pioneer Square is a humorous primer on early Seattle History, complete with traipsing through dank underground passageways.

Every visitor to Seattle must make a stop at Pike Street Market. Check out the vendors and watch the flying fish.

For a bit of peace, head to the Olympic Sculpture Park, a free branch of the Seattle Art Museum (also a good place to go).

For views on a clear day, you could go to the top of the Space Needle, OR you could save your $$ and head up to Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill. Alternately, you can head to the top of the Columbia Tower, the tallest building in Washington State--significantly cheaper and taller than the Space Needle.

Like some other big cities, Seattle has it's own version of a duck tour. Ride the Ducks leaves from right across from Seattle Center. After you get your fill of cheesy jokes on your amphibious truck tour, you can head across and check out the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum--one ticket gets you into both venues.

For beach fun, head to Alki Point in West Seattle (take the Water Taxi there from Downtown Seattle!) or Golden Gardens Park in the Ballard neighborhood.

Registries (now with links!)

Our big event approaches! We are registered at Amazon and Macys. Our photographers also have a registry feature. (I'm not sure how it works, though. So check back for info on that later).

Gifts are great, but mostly we're excited to see you all! :D
