A Lively & Vibrant Seattle Wedding Inspired By The 1962 World's Fair Celebrated At The Museum of History & Industry
Katie Powers, who works in marketing, and home inspector/chef Sully McGinnis ran in similar social circles for years before finally connecting online. Though they joked that their first date “was not stellar,” once they started to click they were inseparable, with Sully proposing at a Christmas tree lighting in Leavenworth after six years of dating.
Professed lovers of the 1962 World’s Fair, mid-century mod architecture and decor and all things old Seattle, the vivacious pair set out to plan a warm, welcoming three-day wedding weekend that kicked off with a barbecue bash, complete with line dancing and a mechanical bull, in lieu of a traditional rehearsal dinner and continued the next day with a sunny rooftop ceremony at the Thompson Seattle hotel and a reception at the Museum of History & Industry. Centered on the couple’s theme of “serious fun,” the party included tables themed according to the World’s Fair attractions and a Space Age back lounge, where guests got competitive over a custom Pac-Man game and threw back Jell-O mold shots from City Catering Company.
