Seattle Sewage Treatment Facility Wants You To Marry At Their 'Poop Plant'

This Seattle-area wedding venue is the sh*t -- and we mean that in the most literal sense of the word.

According to local news station KIRO-TV, the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Center in Woodinville, Wash. just recently began advertising itself as a legitimate wedding venue for brides- and grooms-to-be. The weddings will be held at the Brightwater Center, which is just a stone's throw away from the area where raw sewage is processed. Delightful!

The plant, fortunately, is "zero-odor" facility because all of the processing is contained. KIRO reporter David Ham confirmed that he was unable to detect any foul smells.

The director of Brightwater Environmental Education & Community Center, Susan Tallarico, said that so far, the location hasn't been a problem for prospective clients.

"We've never really had people who were super turned off, they kind of come in and fall in love with the space," she said.

It costs $2,000 to rent the indoor space for a wedding, considerably less than the more popular venues in the area. The Brightwater Center Site Manager told HuffPost Weddings in an email that they already have a wedding booked for this fall. But not everyone is so keen on the idea.

As one Facebook user commented on the post advertising Brightwater as a wedding venue: "[It's] every girl's dream to get married at a poop plant."
