The festivities begin at 6PM. The party never stops.
We're excited to have you join us in Seattle and hope you can make the most of your weekend in the Emerald City. Learn more about the festivities and people, our favorite activities in city, and the easiest ways to get around town.
Children are more than welcome to join us for the wedding ceremony, but the dinner party is just for the big kids!
We have a room within the hotel just for the kiddos (of all ages) for out of town family and friends. If you are interested in bringing your child to Seattle and don’t have a babysitter, please email us by September 4th so we can add them to the kids only hotel room party following the ceremony!
Following the ceremony your child can be brought upstairs for a kids friendly dinner, games and activities with Jeramie Miller, a well known and respected nanny. Following dinner feel free to pick up your little one for dancing, or have some extra time with the big kids on us. Babysitting services will continue through 10pm.

Like so many love stories, ours begins with a craigslist ad…Anton, a dashing young man from the mid-west ventured across the country to work for a little Seattle company… Amazon. He moved into a town home with another charming computer programmer, Andy, and the two set out to find a third roomie crafting an ambiguous post sure to capture any girls heart. Enter one of Jody’s closest friends Anna, who won the hearts of Andy and Anton and moved into the Capitol Hill town home, becoming the central hangout for all of her friends.
After a year of friendship, excessive texting, and nights out at Havana, Anton and Jody finally realized there might be something more to their friendship. On Christmas day 2007 the two had their first real date and two weeks later Jody finally convinced Anton they should give it a try! Fast forward four amazing years of fun dates, amazing travels and endless laughter, and Anton finally decided to take the plunge and proposed to Jody on the first morning of their Hawaiian vacation in August 2012. In 2013 Jody will finish up her Master’s in Speech and Anton looks forward to livin’ the dream with his start-up, and if that isn’t enough excitement, the two look forward to beginning their “happily ever after” with their closest friends and family on September 7th!
Wedding Party Ladies
Michelle Zapalski: from the days of note passing at Forest Ridge middle school to the texts of today Michelle is one of Jody’s best friends and she is beyond thrilled to have her by her side as her Matron of Honor.
Anna Gorohoff: photo evidence proves this duo met back on a mission trek in middle school, but truly became connected at the hip during their days of playing in the woods at summer camp.
Philly Hoshko: Jody won the lottery when it came to her assigned college freshman roommate, who within days became one of her best friends…Phody! The two have gone from running havoc in the halls of Pralle to traveling the world together on Semester at Sea .
Vanessa Carkonen: Assigned to the same floor freshman year at Chapman, Vanessa, Jody and Philly soon became a troublesome trio, living together throughout college and even moving to the Pacific Northwest to continue the fun adventures.
Carla McMinn: from the first side pony-tail scrunchie introduction at Chapman Carla soon became an honorary roommate spending many a day (and night) in Jody, Philly and Vanessa’s house. From dance parties to first outdoor adventures, Carla makes every outing entertaining!
