C&C Wedding Factory

Hi there! Congratulations! You’ve received an invitation to the wedding of Charlie and Cory! Please RSVP by Wednesday, May 22nd ** If you missed the deadline but still really wanna come, please reach out!**

The Main Details:
We will be meeting in Ravenna Park, 5520 Ravenna Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105, around 3:30PM on on Sunday, July 14th. We’ve reserved the picnic shelters towards the back of the park. Just look for the party! We’ll have music and some snacks. 

Then… at exactly 4:00PM we’ll walk down Ravenna Trail together to where the ceremony will take place. Be sure to be there by 4 or you’ll miss us! The walk should take no more than 15 minutes. This is a low-impact walking/hiking trail, we don’t recommend you wear fancy shoes or anything like that and you should expect some slight inclines/declines ;) If you need assistance, please let us know! The ceremony will be standing only, but if you would like a chair, let us know in advance and we’ll be happy to provide one for you! 

After the ceremony, we’ll have a quick hangout/toast at the park shelters and then there will be a couple hours for you to regroup and bask in the glow of our love before the reception. 

The reception will begin at 7PM at Machine House Brewery in the Georgetown neighborhood, 5840 Airport Way S #121, Seattle, WA 98108. There will be pizza (some vegan for the vegans, some gluten-free for the GFs, etc), salad, more snacks, beer, cider, and sodas. And cake, of course. In addition to dinner, there will be live music and some very danceable tunes. We can’t wait to party with all of you! 

Parking
Unfortunately, there is only street parking near Ravenna Park so you may have to walk a short distance to get to the ceremony. There is a very large pay parking lot next to Machine House Brewery. 

Attire:
Please wear literally whatever you want. Your ideal wedding outfit. The ceremony  portion will take place outside, basically in the woods, so feel free to take that into consideration. If you want to dress up or down for the reception, please do! If you need a little more guidance, Cory will be wearing a wedding dress and Charlie will be wearing a suit. Email us if you want ideas on your outfit. ;) 

Accessibility
The trail to our ceremony will not be flat but it is very low-impact. If you would like any assistance at all, please reach out. Access into Machine House is flat with no stairs. There is only one bathroom so we will also have a “portable toilet” on the premises. Hardy, able-bodied folk are kindly encouraged to give the portable toilet a try ;)

Other stuff:
Machine House only serves beer, cider, and soda - no hard alcohol or wine. There will be gluten and dairy-free options available at the ceremony. There will be live bands that aren’t super loud, however, we’ll have some earplugs on hand just in case. Safety first! 

Gifts:
Gifts are 100% not necessary! Sharing this day with you is all we need, but if you would like to make a gift, we have a PayPal Money Pool you can send money to. 25% of the money will be donated to Social Justice Fund Northwest

**VERY IMPORTANT** Our wedding ceremony and reception will be a safer space for all of our guests and we ask that you respect everyone attending. We deeply love every person attending this event and want everyone to feel that love at all times. Many of our friends identify along a beautiful gender spectrum. Please do not assume anyone’s gender at this event! If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to email us and we’ll be happy to discuss it.** 

P.S. if you're looking for things to do in Seattle and want some suggestions/ comments/ideas, feel free to contact us! 

LOL (Lots of Love),
Cory + Charlie
