Now in it’s 5th year, couples will find the event dynamic and thriving, offering an array of vintage-styled wares, jewelry, services, favors, photographers and much more.
“Brides have always loved nostalgic details, but over the past decade we are seeing entire weddings designed with vintage looks. And WOW, couples are really doing some beautiful things to celebrate!” ~ R. Wagner
We are excited to introduce the following vendors for our Spring 2014 event:
Seattle Parties just announced a new partnership as preferred DJ vendors at Melrose Market Studios!
Seattle Parties offer entertainment services for events, including weddings, corporate, holiday, private soirees, benefits, birthdays, and product launches. They are proud to have been named the top DJ company in Seattle Bride Magazine’s Best of 2012
Owners Leslie and Sean Wheatley have run Seattle Parties since 1998. Starting off in the club scene, they were instrumental in bringing the swing dance craze to Seattle. Soon, couples asked for DJ Leslie to do their weddings while corporate event planners were seeking out Leslie’s entertainment expertise for their lavish parties.
Contacts with many of the local musicians allowed Seattle Parties to offer the best bands in town, including the Dusty 45?s, Monty Banks and other local and national acts. By the year 2000, both Sean and Leslie were full time wedding and event DJs and Seattle Parties was on its way as a leader in event entertainment in the Northwest.

Our goal with the Anacortes Oktoberfest was to take the best elements of each, provide patrons with a host of choices, and build the event into an enjoyable experience for brewers and attendees alike. Gauged by brewery participation, the event will be the largest Oktoberfest in Washington State, providing event-goers with an opportunity to meet-and-greet brewers from throughout the Pacific Northwest.
