Offbeat Empire reception post-mortem…

By

Offbeat Empire Reception from Seattle videographer Tim O'Hara.

A month ago, I wasn't sure this party was going to happen. Suddenly I was a month away from hosting a huge party for a big bunch of people (more than my wedding!) and I realized I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I am a publisher, not an event planner! This is not my gig! I had visions of the gorgeous space I'd booked completely empty, the only attendees being a half-smattering of my bored friends standing around out of pity, and my Empire staffers shuffling around uneasily. "Is there anything to eat?" someone would say, and I'd be all "OH SHIT. I forgot to finalize the catering with Shooby DooThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them." This was my special nightmare.

I called the folks at Urban Light StudiosThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them, and told them I might have to cancel the event… but they wouldn't let me back out. "We know someone who can help," they told me. "You're going to love her." And thus, thanks to Kelli from Shindig EventsThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them, the Offbeat Empire party was not only saved — it was ROCKED THE FUCK OUT. Please oh please, come with me as I relive the evening via the amazing photos captured by Jonas SeamanThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ themCLICK HERE!
