Wedding at a wastewater treatment plant? Hyped headline, but points for creativity.

Oh for goodness sake.

A beautiful education center near a wastewater treatment plant mentions the phrase “wedding reception” and suddenly the media thinks they’re inviting couples to say their nuptials waist-deep in poo.

See for yourself.

King County in Washington operates the Brightwater Center, an education complex and community gem available for outreach, training, and public events. When its Wastewater Treatment Division mentioned the center welcomes “your wedding reception or special event” in a Facebook post last week, local news took it and ran.

The headline and KIRO’s story made news on Huffington Post, the AP, and many more.

Here is the actual post that got it all started.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = “//”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Well played, King County, the attention is well-earned, and we hope you get a few new visitors out of it.

Similarly, we welcome guests to tour our facilities, and if we ever welcome a wedding or reception, we have the vows all ready to go.
