Review from The Knot
Lydia and Utkarsh married October 15, 2021
“Frank was phenomenal! At first, we were just looking for an officiant to get us married in a park, but when we learned of his Urban Farm we quickly changed our plans to have the whole elopement ceremony at his venue. He helped talk us through everything and spent the time to really get to know us. He was as excited for the whole thing as we were. He did not make us feel rushed through the whole process and made everything very smooth. Because of the pandemic most of our guests were attending via Zoom. Frank knew and already had the equipment to set everything up for the call and engaged with the guests as if they were there in person. As an officiant Frank went above and beyond to tell our whole love story since the beginning and made us comfortable to say our vows. Frank doesn’t just go through the motions; he puts on a show and is very funny.”

Elopements and Small Weddings with Officiant Frank Harlan
The Gardens at FranMo Urban Farm is Officiant Frank Harlan's outdoor wedding venue in Seattle -- created by Frank and his wife Molly to host Smaller Wedding Productions, Afternoon Receptions and Garden Party get-togethers (birthdays and anniversaries). Located 10 miles north of downtown Seattle, The Gardens at FranMo is simply beautiful and offers several DIY options, plus all the amenities you may need to host a small event.
"Having your wedding in The Gardens is like getting married in a national park -- surrounded by 100' tall evergreens, dozens of seasonal flowering plants and a P-Patch. The privacy of an estate property and the casualness of an urban farm."
For a small wedding or elopement, this unique venue is more than half an acre of private photo-fabulous backdrops, practical-use spaces, and multiple staging areas at a single location. "Ceremony Only" rentals are available Sun-Fri.
For couples looking for that perfect outdoor setting for an afternoon wedding and garden party-style reception, consider The Gardens at FranMo located on a small urban farm at the edge of Seattle city limits.
