Bainbridge Island our #1 Destination Wedding Venue!

By Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer

We love Bainbridge Island for (at least) two reasons.

First, what’s not to love.  We wander through the shops in Winslow, take our dogs for hikes on all the trails, and visit my Dad who lives there.

And second, what a great place to get married.  As someone who’s recently married and in the “marriage business” I can spot a great venue when I see one and Bainbridge has several.  Think Manor House at Pleasant Beach, IslandWood, Bloedel Reserve, and Kiana Lodge (yes, I know it’s technically Poulsbo but it’s too great not to include).

As far as we can tell Pixel Dust Weddings is the only Seattle Wedding Video company who will shoot weddings on Bainbridge Island and NOT charge an overnight fee.  We only charge to ride the ferry and if things run late it’s just an excuse to visit my Dad for overnight.

So we’ve been anxious to work on Bainbridge and are delighted to announce our first contract to shoot a wedding to be held at Kiana Lodge in September.  We can’t wait!!!

If you’re planning a wedding soon consider Bainbridge as a great “destination wedding venue” and choose Pixel Dust to be your Bainbridge Island Videographer.  Check us out on Yelp, MyWedding, WeddingWire, Facebook and any other source.

An Unforgettable Event…

By Seattle Wedding Videographer

Pixel Dust donates their time to film Brad & Tommy’s wedding. Brad, who suffers from
short-term memory loss, will now be able to remember their wedding day forever.

Early October I received an email from Lisa Blair, the Director of Catering at the Sorrento Hotel in Seattle telling me about Brad and Tommy.  I got chills when I read about Brad and Tommy who were about to be wed but on a very tight budget due to all their hospital bills.  Here is an excerpt from her email:

“Brad and Tommy were supposed to marry here this past March.  Unfortunately Brad came home from work and found Tommy on the floor not breathing!  He gave him CPR and called 911.   Tommy had suffered from a brain aneurism and was in Harborview for months.   He has had an amazing recovery (and brain surgery) and we rescheduled their wedding for next month.   The only sad part is Tommy now has very little short term memory due to his illness.   I strongly suggested to Brad that they video tape the wedding day so that he can replay for Tommy.   Obviously their wedding funds are depleted greatly due to hospital bills, but I am hoping you can help me find a way to work with these guys?”

I immediately picked up the phone, called Lisa and offered my time to help out.  Lisa wrote out an email to Brad and asked if he would be interested.  Brad was thrilled and called me right away to go over the details of his big day.  When I spoke with Brad we decided to keep it a secret from Tommy and surprise him after the ceremony.  Immediately I became excited because not only was I filled with the joy of helping another human being but I also now got to keep it a surprise and stay hidden until the ceremony.  So fun!  Good thing I use DSLR cameras because they look like photographers cameras so I was able to blend in as the photographer, Dani Weiss’s assistant.

We started the day with a brief interview to tell the story and to set the stage to surprise Tommy.  The event was amazing!  The couple was glowing!  And here I am, writing this blog and starting to tear up just thinking about it.  The day was truly one to remember… and now Tommy gets to remember it too!

Love you guys!  XO

Mt Rainier Wedding & “Same-Day Edit” Packages

By Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer, Seattle Wedding Videographer

After such a wonderful experience doing a same day edit for Alexis + Brian,
Pixel Dust begins offering ‘Same-Day Edit Packages.’

On Friday, September 13th I filmed Alexis + Brian’s Wedding at Mt. Rainier National park on the Nisqually Vista trail at Paradise Point. The couple chose to keep it small since the location was difficult to access and then planned a larger reception for the following day in Seattle for their friends and family. Since their friends and most of their family couldn’t be in attendance they asked if I could create an extended highlight reel (a mini wedding video) for them to share at their reception. So I did an overnight edit (“same-day” or less than 24 hour turnaround) and they were able to show it on the big screen (as well as see it for the first time themselves) the next evening.

Here is what Alexis (the bride) emailed me the following week:

“We LOVED our video! So did everyone else, about 150 people saw it on Saturday and I got compliments all night about it. Thank you so, so much! “

Getting emails like that is why I do what I do! I’m so thrilled she loved it and had so much fun shooting it that I’m in the works of putting together an “Extended Highlight Video – Overnight Edit Package” right now. Be sure to check back on our “packages” page for info on this great new deal soon!

I’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to a dear friend and amazing Photographer Lindsey Pavlyuchek of LMPav Photography. Lindsey has been a Professional Photographer for many years. She started in Florida and now resides in the Pacific Northwest. She has recently started shooting weddings and I am absolutely blown away by her wedding photos from this event! She was gracious enough to pick up this gig last minute and the fact that she was able to work with the Bride’s budget when other photographers wouldn’t. Alexis + Brian were thrilled with her work and I’ll definitely recommend her again!

Lindsey is easy to find either on LMPav Photography’s web site or on her Facebook Page.
