Vangard takes over Fremont Studios for the 8th annual event honoring Seattle's event professionals. The Vangard team handles design, decor and floral; Fremont also provided lighting.

The earthy fabric palate is an effective backdrop for greenery and pops of red.
Vendor partners include ABC Special Event Rentals by CORT for rentals, CORT Event Furnishings for furniture and Creative Coverings for linens.
