Seattle Wedding Venues?!!!

My fiancee and I (very recently engaged!) are trying to plan a wedding in Seattle for this September (2015) - it's starting to feel a bit short notice, and while we've gotten some great tips and are exploring some fun looking venues, we don't live near Seattle. At the moment, we're really focused on finding a venue. I'd greatly appreciate any tips or thoughts people have! A few more details regarding what we're looking for are inside. [more inside]

Seattle visit in January - How to get around, where to stay, what to see

My wife and I are visiting Portland, OR for a conference in January, and decided to tack on a quick visit to Seattle afterwards. We know Portland pretty well, but neither of have been to Seattle. We were hoping to use public transit there, but my wife has trouble walking long distances or standing for long periods of time, so we'd need lines that have very frequent and predictable arrivals.

Where should I live for an easy (transit) commute to downtown Seattle?

I'm hoping for a commute that's as painless and short as possible (<30min door to door). Office is near the public library (around 5th Ave and Columbia). I'll be looking for a house with a backyard and a good school district. I know traffic is a bear, and I don't love driving, so if there's any way to do this by public transit or (I wish!) walking, that would be ideal. But if I have to park, I will.

Memorable Sunday lunch in seattle

I'm in Seattle with my girlfriend for a wedding. It's her hometown, but she hasn't lived here in about eight years. We unexpectedly have some free time for lunch tomorrow (Sunday) in or near downtown Seattle. I'd love to take her somewhere fun, with great, interesting and/or memorable food - surprise her with something. Any recommendations for a last minute Sunday lunch? We eat everything and any price is fine. Thanks!

A stargazing destination for little kids around Seattle?

My kids (3 & 5) both love to hear about space and space travel. But living in Seattle means they rarely see any stars. In the spring and summer it's light past their bedtime. In the fall and winter it's often cloudy, and when it isn't, there's tons of light pollution. I want to take them on a trip where they can see the night sky in all its glory. [more inside]
