The WithinSodo wedding between Nicole & Tom was nothing short of magical. They are a very kind couple, deeply in love with each other. When they contacted us to capture their celebration, we were truly overwhelmed as it is one of our favorite Seattle wedding venues.
The couple chose the WithinSodo wedding venue because of its unique charm, and it had the overall vibe they were looking for. Our day started with getting ready photos of the couple. Nicole & Tom shared a sentimental first look and looked so in touch with each other. After a while, we headed for their ceremony, which was scheduled at the Church. Nicole arrived in the car and looked so gorgeous that we couldn’t take our eyes off her. At the same time, Tom looked really handsome and dashing, all suited up for the day.
As he was waiting eagerly for his bride, Nicole walked down the aisle with her father – It was such an emotional moment for everyone present! The couple exchanged vows in the presence of their loved ones, and all cheered for them wholeheartedly. Grabbing happy smiles and a few teary-eyed photos at the Church, we rode in style to WithinSodo wedding venue in downtown Seattle for the reception.

When we arrived at WithinSodo, we were surprised at how thoughtfully everything was planned, starting with the convenience of the parking. Their parking is available from their 1st Ave doors at 2915 1st Ave S. – the good news is the street parking is free and usually empty at night and on weekends! There is also parking at their 2916 Utah Ave S. address. You will be able to enter the venue through the center doors or through large bay doors.
After seeing the gallery and reading this whole story, we bet you will love WithinSodo, so you might have more questions. Luckily the staff is remarkably helpful and diligent, so they will be super informative. However, they do have many questions on their website answered, which you will find on this faq link!
Seattle Wedding Venue
WithinSodo is a local Industrial wedding venue that features dramatic views of the Seattle skyline from the 3000 square foot rooftop deck. Additionally, it includes four configurable rooms of 900-1400 square feet each. The kitchen and bar facilities, along with the rooftop deck, bring a new level of versatility and uniqueness. The venue caters to any event that you can imagine and can easily accommodate up to 600 downstairs and upstairs guests. It provides five event spaces – the lobby, the gallery, the lounge, the ballroom & the rooftop deck. All of these combined include a partially covered rooftop deck with a spectacular view of the downtown area.
Thanks to the original brick walls, polished concrete walls, a great sound system, and virtually no noise restrictions, you can easily celebrate in style. The edgy ballroom mixes artistic chandeliers with old barn doors that give a mesmerizing look.
West Seattle Wedding
The wedding was planned nicely with careful accents to color and detail. As the guests arrived at the reception venue, we took time off with the couple to capture a few portraits during the golden hour. Like any Seattle wedding photographer would say, it was a spectacular time of the day, as we captured some of the most beautiful and timeless pictures. It was a lovely evening with toasts, speeches, and love all around.
The dinner and reception activities all took place at WithinSodo. Each room was completely different, but the venue had an elegantly industrial mood overall. One thing we will never forget about the wedding is the food – Nicole & Tom had thought of many perfect treats and snacks, satisfying everyone’s tastebuds! They opted for a beautiful cake with the couple’s miniature design at the top, which looked stunning!
After the dinner and formal dances, guests were welcomed to the dance floor as usual. It was super fun, with everyone dancing their hearts out. Not many weddings have a time when people can connect, but Nicole & Tom made sure that everyone was mingling with each other. Lastly, the event would have been impossible without the staff at the WithinSodo wedding venue because they ensured that everything ran seamlessly.
That being said, if you are planning to host your wedding in Seattle Downtown, look no further than WithinSodo Wedding venue! Plus, it is highly affordable as the rental fees start from $750 and up! This also depends on the day of the week and month – whether it is peak season etc.
It was an honor capturing this memorable day at the WithinSodo wedding venue. We enjoyed it thoroughly and left the celebration with our cheeks sore from grinning!
