  • Lake Union Cafe and their staff were my knights in shinning armor! My husband (omg!) and I were one of the many couples affected by the Monte Cristo Ballroom closure- luckily we had a few months to recoup and replan. Luckily Lake Union was free on our date and once we signed we were able to hit the ground running and plan an AMAZING event. They answered all my questions quickly and were very accommodating when I asked for things like "can we play the superbowl after the ceremony"? Day of: the venue was gorgeous and the food was delicious. Once the day began I was able to just let go and see all my plans unfold and it was magical. I have nothing but positive things to say about my wedding day and I attribute that to all my vendors but I definitely couldn't have done it without LUC.
