About Grit City Weddings & Events

GRITTY + GRACEFUL. CALM + COOL. UNABASHEDLY UNIQUE.

Just like our great City of Tacoma - aka Grit City.

Your wedding colors are hot pink and tattoos. You are entering the venue on a horse. Your theme is Game of Thrones. Instead of dancing, you are playing board games all night. Yeah, we get you.

Weddings don’t have to be lilies and roses. There is nothing wrong with lilies and roses, we quite like them, but you don’t have to have those. You can have paper flowers or no flowers at all. Your options don’t have to be chicken or beef. Eat lamb ragu or vegan chili. Let’s plan a wedding that looks like the two of you.

You know what makes a wedding awesome? Spending time with the people you love. A wedding doesn’t have to cost $40,000 if you don’t want it to. Spend money on the things that really matter to you. Let’s uproot the idea of what a wedding should look like. Let’s celebrate this commitment you have made to each other. Let’s throw a huge party where everyone has a great time!

One of the best vendors to invest in is a wedding coordinator. This person ensures you are hosting your party not working your party. Let your friends and family actually enjoy the event: don’t expect them to set-up and tear-down. Leave the work to us. Let us manage the timing, organization, and details. Let's plan this event so well that it doesn't look planned at all.

SERVICES OFFERED

Grit City Weddings + Events offers several packages for weddings of all shapes and sizes. From elopement or elopement-like to massive 500-guest blow-outs, we have the connections, skill, and passion for weddings to make these awesome celebrations happen. We even have special all-inclusive, concierge packages for micro-weddings – weddings for a guest list of less than 50 people. We work with Tacoma-based small businesses to make these intimate weddings happen on a small budget but with huge style.

New to Tacoma but not new to weddings and events, Michele + Ashley seek to work with local businesses who care about the community in which we live and work and are seeking to leave it better than we found it.

We want to work with couples who are on the same page as us, too. That means we agree on some basic tenets: black lives matter, feminism is for everyone, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, and religious freedom makes each of our lives rich with compassion.

    Look no further! The ABSOLUTE best!

    If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Choosing Ashley as our wedding coordinator was the best decision we ever made. Out of all the vendors we hired, she really shined! She gave us direction and tied all the details together, which made our big day fun and stress-free. She also gave us ideas and asked questions we would have otherwise never thought of. She really went above and beyond - she met us at our venue (which wasn't super close), helped direct a zoom call with my loud crazy family, she continued to update a detailed timeline that she sent to myself and our vendors, and she was there from start to finish the day of the wedding - that list doesn't come close to describing everything she did! She also gave me an emergency kit to use on my wedding day, how thoughtful is that?! At one point she was even helping the servers at the venue make sure that the guests had drinks and water. She has so much energy and creativity and she was fun to work with. I felt like we were friends that had known each other for a long time. I will recommend her to ANYONE getting married. A+!

    Top notch and thorough service

    Ashley is top notch in every area of wedding preparation, and the wedding day experience. She is easy to work with in every way and her attention to detail is outstanding. She is pleasant, fun and professional. We could not have had such a smooth and uneventful experience without her help. I highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding.
