On November 10th, 2016, brides, grooms, and the city’s best wedding professionals came from near and far to celebrate in Havana Nights fashion at the 9th annual Get Hitched Give Hope bridal auction and gala, an upscale, glamorous, and fanciful evening of wedding finery. You ate, drank, danced, and shopped — at our best and biggest Silent Auction ever– and won our most luxurious raffle prizes to date! It’s no surprise that together, we raised a record-breaking $140,000 to grant final wishes through Dream Foundation! Our generous guests, you have helped so many! Since its inception, Get Hitched Give Hope has raised more than $700,000 for charity. Thank you, Seattle. Thank you.

If you missed the gala and want a taste of what it was like, have a look at the incredible highlights slideshow below, captured by the fabulous team at La Vie Photography and a beautifully filmed video from First & Foremost Productions! See even more highlights images on our Facebook page. See all the shenanigans from the photo booth from The Lightning Booth on their Facebook page.

What Get Hitched Give Hope is all about…
One couple, 
Victor and Nicole, were able to plan the majority of their wedding in a couple of hours for 50% of the cost! This lovely couple bought VIP tickets and received a gift bag full of amazing goodies plus had a GHGH volunteer take them around to meet vendors and help them seek out what they needed for their wedding. They ended up winning:

            Carol Harrold Photography Package

            Custom Wedding Cake from Stone Layne Baked Specialties

            Magnolia Rhapsody DJ/MC Package

            Day of Coordination from New Creations Wedding Design & Coordination

            Wedding Invitation Suite from Songbird Paperie

It total, this couple spent $5,250 on these five packages; but in total, these packages are worth over $12,000!! One of our Get Hitched Give Hope founders talked to them during the gala and they told her that even if they didn’t win (since they had so many bids out there at once) that they would have hired those vendors anyway simply because they are good people for being involved in GHGH. I mean how cool is that!?!? They planned their wedding in under two hours basically. So awesome!! Thank you Victor and Nicole! Your giving embodies what Get Hitched Give Hope is really all about.

2016 // Custom Personalized Wedding Package from Timeless Weddings

Timeless Weddings Veils

Debbie has sewn for nearly 50 years and has been a giver with Get Hitched Give Hope for 6 straight years! She invites you to create the veil you envision together. Debbie and Al  can’t begin to tell you how exciting it is for them to create gifts, favors, items for the reception, wedding canopies (chuppahs), and the home. The possibilities and ideas are endless! That is the beauty of custom.

Moms, newborns and brides, it doesn’t get much better than that for Debbie and Al! It is an honor and privilege for them to be a part of such a special time in someone’s life. Debbie loves getting to know her wonderful brides and understanding what they want! Communication, caring, and being involved in the wedding. Taking care to make sure that everything is exactly right! Whether they communicate by email, by phone, or locally in person, Debbie and Al always strive to create exactly what their bride envisions. Their focus is bride centered; they will work one-on-one to get every detail right. Their belief is that no job is complete until their bride is completely happy with the end result and this philosophy in turn makes Debbie and Al very happy! This philosophy is certainly not unique to their business but it is the only way they would choose to do business.
