FranMo: A Brief History

Frank Harlan and his wife and partner of 16 years, Molly Cartwright have combined their unique pasts and ever-changing skill sets in special events and the hospitality industry to create a contemporary 25,000 sq ft outdoor rental venue that provides the perfect setting for smaller wedding gatherings and afternoon garden party receptions.

FranMo Urban Farm is located 10 miles north of Downtown Seattle, Washington.


Supporting the "New Normal" with fresh ideas
and concepts for wedding day celebrations.

Prior to 2009, Frank Harlan performed, and produced 100's of special events -- private and public for more than 25 years. Since '09, as a Certified Humanist Celebrant, Harlan has produced and performed hundreds of secular weddings. As well as organized and hosted dozens of wedding receptions for the couples he has married.

From his experiences at many event venues, large and small all over Washington, the one thing Harlan noticed was that for smaller gatherings -- 2-3 dozen guests --- the choices were few. And often K-9 participation was limited to Ceremony and family photos. Because we love our dogs the main part of the garden -- nearly 1/2 an acre is fully fenced.
