Health & Safety

Your Safety is Our Priority


Not to sound too much like an insurance ad here, but it is very important to us that we have an event that is safe for all, especially our 2-month old daughter, Emmy [see note below].

Maybe it's the "new-parents" in us, but we also believe that being safe is more fun, especially in this case because if we meet the qualifications for a fully vaccinated event, we don't have to socially distance or limit our guest count, etc. (still trying to pin down whether masks are required at any points in time/any areas at our venues but fingers crossed on that!) and can actually give you all a big fat hug and dance and celebrate with you all the way we always envisioned

There is a lot of information here, we know, so please bear with us. We've tried to highlight and road map the information below to spare you from all of the fine print.

Thank you for working with us on this and being patient and flexible as these requirements continue to change. We will continue to keep you in the loop as we get updates on restrictions, but please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions in the meantime xx


But actually, Emmy's safety is our priority


While we are still figuring a lot of things out as new parents, we know one thing for sure: our #1 job is to protect our little girl. That is why we will be asking each of you to kindly wear a mask and wash your hands if you want to meet little Emmy. We will have masks available.

Thank you for helping us protect this precious baby of ours. Here is a picture of a milk-drunk baby to make this coronavirus legal stuff more palatable ;)

Current WA State & Venue Event Requirements & Restrictions:


In an effort to meet the strict requirements of a fully vaccinated event, our guests must all be A) fully vaccinated 2 weeks prior to the event or B) receive a negative COVID-19 test in accordance with acceptable guidelines detailed below.

While our venue has requested that we obtain and track proof of all vaccinations and negative tests, we are currently not requesting such information. We hope this will not be necessary as restrictions continue to evolve in the State of Washington. However, in the case that this is in fact required, we will hire a service to obtain this information from you that is HIPAA compliant and will hopefully make all of our lives easier.

We truly appreciate your patience as we navigate these changes and requirements.

"Fully Vaccinated" Event Requirements


The following is based on current guidance provided by the Governor of the State of WA and our venues as of 5/13/2021. Note that these requirements are subject to change prior to the event so please check this website as well as provide us with your e-mail so we can communicate important updates closer to the event date.

Weddings and events which meet the conditions for a “fully vaccinated event wedding or event” set out below are allowed to occur in strict compliance with the provisions of this document. For such weddings and events, the venue (whether indoor or outdoor) may operate at full fire-code capacity. Face coverings requirements and all the exceptions to those requirements remain applicable as set out in the guidance document for weddings and events. Fully vaccinated weddings and events are not subject to any of the COVID-19 requirements regarding distance between individuals or groups, standing, mingling, dancing and/or food and beverage service other than the face covering requirements.
 
Definition of fully vaccinated: Event attendees vaccinated against COVID-19 by a two-dose mRNA vaccine (such as Moderna and Pfizer), or a single dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson), are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after the final dose of vaccine (the second dose for a two-dose regimen, or the single dose for a single-dose regimen).
 
Documentation of vaccination status must be available upon request at any time.
 
Children up to age 15. Children between the ages of 2 and 15 who can provide proof of having tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of admission, are also allowed to attend such events. Children under the age of 2 do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test to attend the wedding or event when accompanied by a vaccinated adult. *K&L note- we think this is ridiculous and we will not be requiring your children to get tested at this time as we think this guidance will change. If this really is deemed necessary by our venue closer to the date, we are happy to provide a rapid test for your children and one of our "in-house MDs (aka effectively everyone in Logan's family ;)) will sign off.
 
Adults with a health condition preventing vaccination. Adults with a health condition that prevents them from being able to safely take the Covid-19 vaccine may attend a fully vaccinated wedding or event so long as they provide proof of having tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of admission.
 
In order to attend the wedding or event, all persons must provide proof of vaccination (if 16 years of age or older) or of a negative COVID-19 test (if between 2 and 15 years of age or adults with a health condition preventing vaccination) *K&L note- we are currently not requesting proof of your vaccination or test at this time. We will provide an update/reach out if our venue requests documentation closer to the date.
 
Any individual who is symptomatic, even if fully vaccinated, will not be allowed to attend the wedding or event.
 
Physical distancing is not required for fully vaccinated weddings and events.


Re: Proof of Vaccination or Negative COVID-19 Test


The following is based on current guidance provided by the Governor of the State of WA and our venues as of 5/13/2021. Note that these requirements are subject to change prior to the event so please check this website as well as provide us with your e-mail so we can communicate important updates closer to the event date.

*K&L note: We are not currently requesting this proof as we are hopeful this requirement will change prior to August. Please stay tuned for updates as we will continue to update our website as well as communicate any changes and requests in the future via e-mail.

The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination: 

-Vaccination card (which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered) OR a photo of a vaccination card as a separate document OR a photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device OR documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider electronic health record or state Immunization Information System record. Self-reported vaccination records that are not verified by a health care provider cannot be accepted.
 
The following are acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result: printed document (from the test provider or laboratory) OR an email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory. The information provided should include name of person tested, type of test performed, and date of negative test result (for PCR test, date of negative result must be within prior 72 hours; for antigen test, date of negative result must be within prior 24 hours). Self-reported negative test results that are not from a test provider, a laboratory, or a health care provider cannot be accepted.
 
For weddings and events that meet the fully vaccinated requirements of this document, the event venue whether indoor or outdoor may operate at full fire-code capacity, with no increased distance between individuals or groups. For the purposes of calculating total capacity do not include facility employees or vendors.
 
In order to qualify for a fully vaccinated event, we (the host) must maintain a spreadsheet (or other similar document) for all attendees. Host must maintain a record for each guest to include Vaccination card (which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered) OR a photo of a vaccination card as a separate document OR a photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device OR documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider electronic health record or state Immunization Information System record. If a guest is unvaccinated, a record of negative COVID-19 test to include printed document (from the test provider or laboratory) OR an email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory. The information provided should include name of person tested, type of test performed, and date of negative test result (for PCR test, date of negative result must be within prior 72 hours; for antigen test, date of negative result must be within prior 24 hours).   Self-reported vaccination records that are not verified by a health care provider and/or self-reported negative test results that are not from a test provider, a laboratory, or a health care provider cannot be accepted
*K&L note- again, not currently requesting at this time. Please stay tuned, we are hoping this will not be necessary
