Cathedral – Ballard Wedding // Peter + Jaime


We’re very excited to share Peter and Jaime’s special Cathedral – Ballard Wedding!

First off, Cathedral is a very unique venue located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Interestingly, this venue donates 100% of its profits to local charities. Presently, Cathedral has donated over $80,000 to nonprofits and charities. 

Additionally, this two-floor venue is spacious enough to hold up to 170 guests. Initially, Peter and Jaime sent out their wedding invitations from Minted. Moreover, as guests arrived they were invited to take a polaroid picture for the couple’s guestbook. While guests settled in they could choose between having a beer, glass of wine, or a signature cocktail. 

Peter wore a black suit with a sage green tie. Additionally, Jaime chose her dream wedding gown from I Do Bridal. Her champagne-colored dress had an ivory lace overlay. Next, on the day of their wedding she had her hair done by Vann Studio Salon. In detail, her hair was pulled back with a pearl and rhinestone clip. 

As the ceremony began, Jaime made her way up the staircase to the ceremony upstairs. Already, Peter was waiting at their beautifully decorated altar. Their hexagonal wooden altar was decorated with greenery and draped with white satin fabric. Of note, Jaime carried a botanical bouquet that featured eucalyptus, other greenery, and baby’s breath. Correspondingly, Peter had a matching boutonniere that featured a single white rose among foliage.

After sharing their vows with each other, the two exchanged rings. Finally, they shared their first kiss as newlyweds. Lastly, the bride and groom signed their marriage certificate together. They were all smiles as they signed their certificate with some of their loved ones as witnesses. 

During the reception, guests enjoyed farm-to-fork food from Madres Kitchen. And for dessert, there was a marzipan princess cake from Nielsen’s Pastries. Together, the bride and groom cut their marzipan cake and sampled a bite. As the night moved on to more dancing, Limitless Events DJ kept the part going. 

Our team at Sound Originals loved being there to capture Peter & Jaime’s wedding day. Please enjoy their photos!

Cathedral Candles Seattle

Secondly, Cathedral is more than a wedding venue. Alongside the rentable space, the owners run Spir Candle Co. Moreover, the staff of Spir Candle Co. are exclusively underrepresented youth in the community. Specifically, Spir Candle Co. strives to employ young men in the justice system. Together, they provide them with jobs, mentorship, and a space to breathe. In fact, their purpose is to provide a safe space where a sense of belonging and acceptance can be cultivated. 

Of note, when you rent Cathedral in Ballard, you and your guests receive candles from Spir. On their Facebook page, you can learn even more information about their mission. Even if you do not rent this venue for your wedding, you can still place a bulk order for these specially crafted candles by contacting them directly. It is worth mentioning, that each of their candles is signed by the young man that makes it. 

Ballard Wedding Venues

Undeniably, choosing a wedding venue can be a lot of work. Firstly, couples decide on a location and then search for wedding venues in that area. Accordingly, there is a Yelp list of the top 10 wedding venues in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Markedly, these venues range from ping pong bars, dance venues, to bed & breakfasts. Another important factor is whether you want an indoor or outdoor wedding. In detail, Venue Report has a full review of this rooftop pavilion. Considering that a rooftop gives you outdoor access with indoor amenities, this could be the perfect blend of both!

Additionally, Wedding Spot reviewed the Ballard Homestead venue. This vintage event center has a raised stage and a side yard, which allows for endless options. Similarly, Eventective reviewed the Ballard Elks Lodge. While this location is an indoor venue, there is a panoramic wall of windows overlooking both Shilshole and Salmon Bay.
