Because high school prom wasn't awkward enough the first time, Seattle yelpers did it again! This time though, the punch was spiked! Over 330 of Seattle's finest yelpers came dressed to the nines to celebrate prom, Yelp style at Spitfire in Belltown.
Some lucky guests were greeted at the doors with complimentary corsages and boutonnieres courtesy of Seattle's new Marigold & Mint! Prior to the event there was an election held and the top ten prom king and queen nominees were announced upon their arrival. Other guests were given the opportunity to get their hair and make up done by our friends from the Gilt Edge Society and the Sweet Spot.
Lookin' as fab as ever, yelpers got the chance to get a prom photo taken by local photographer, Trishann Couvillion from Fire Eyes Photography. Snapping shots of the event, Yelp also got some great help from Brian and Jennifer from Photo Elan.
Guests were also treated with Yelp lunchboxes, hoodies, and schwag galore! With goodies in hand, guests rocked it out to the tunes of Seattle's own DJ Drew Hobson, aka DJ Doughboy. Mixin' music from all generations, yelpers danced their hearts out while snacking on sliders, popcorn shrimp, quesadillas and and chocolate pouring from fondue fountains!
Half way through the night the king and queens were announced. That's right – there was a tie! Each winner was awarded with a complimentary bottle of wine from the 509 Winery and Tasting Room. What a night to remember!
