FranMo: A Brief History

Frank Harlan and his wife and partner of 17 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 venue that provides the perfect setting for afternoon garden party get-togethers, small weddings, and elopements. Their beautiful venue known as FranMo Urban Farm is located a short 10 miles north of Downtown Seattle, Washington.


Supporting the "New Normal" with fresh ideas and concepts for private get-togethers and 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 they love their dogs the main part of the garden -- nearly 1/2 an acre is fully fenced.


Destined to be Seattle's Most Popular Outdoor Venue for Afternoon Garden Parties and Elopement Weddings.

For couples planning their small wedding production, Frank and Molly can work with you to organize and plan your wedding day agenda, then provide Day of Coordination services from interacting with vendors to sequencing planned activities  during your event.
