Intimate Bliss: A Corson Building Wedding

May 29, 2024

Choosing the perfect venue is one of the most important decisions when planning your wedding. For A and M, the Corson Building in Seattle was the ideal spot for their intimate celebration. Their micro-wedding is bursting with love, laughter, and cherished moments. It was all set against the stunning backdrop of this historic location and my favorite venue!

A Venue That Feels Like Home

The Corson Building, with its beautiful garden and vintage charm, provided the perfect setting for this couple’s special day. They wanted a venue that reflected their love for nature, wildlife, and history, and the Corson Building offered just that. The proximity to their home in Renton also meant they could easily return for anniversaries to enjoy their incredible menu!

“We chose the Corson Building because it felt very ‘us’ to get married at a smaller, historic building in Seattle that has a pretty garden and a comfortable and low-key vibe,” they shared. “The venue, food, and staff are all incredible, and it’s a place we can come back to on future anniversaries.”

A Low-Key Celebration

Their wedding was a relaxed and intimate affair, focusing on spending the day with the people they love most. With no wedding party, flower girl, or toasts, the day was completely about enjoying each other’s company. Their guests included parents, siblings, a couple of friends, a dog, and an infant, creating a truly family-oriented atmosphere. The simplicity of the event allowed everyone to feel comfortable and connected, highlighting the couple’s desire for a low-key celebration.

The wedding took place in the restaurant’s garden, adding to the natural and serene feeling of the day. The greenery and vintage aesthetics of the Corson Building complemented the simple yet elegant style of the couple.

The Beauty of the Moment

One of the most anticipated moments for A was having everyone together in the same place. “The event is meant to feel relatively casual, but having everyone in the same place will feel special and surreal. It’s been a long-awaited moment for us!”

For M, the first dance held significant emotional weight. “The first dance is to a very special song and it will be very emotional for both of us. We’re making this ceremony feel very personal and in tune with our personalities.”
