I always get a rush of excitement when a new wedding videography inquiry comes in for the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle. The Fairmont hotel is a dream venue for being a wedding videographer.

The hotel is an icon of luxury in Seattle. Built in 1924 in a Renaissance-style that has an atmosphere of timeless elegance. It has been recently restored and looks new but historic in its surroundings. With ample real-estate, comprised of three separate ballrooms, you can choose to have your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in one or all. I personally prefer the Garden Room for the ceremony but each has it’s own charms.

As a wedding videographer, I can attest that the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will provide a cinematic canvas for your wedding. The rich carpets, marble floors, and the timeless columns come together to create visual splendor. It is very rare to have so many themed rooms and backdrop options all to the same high standard all under one roof. The exterior is also a great spot for natural light wedding party photos and a city walk photo session. If you are looking to have a downtown Seattle wedding I would highly recommend checking out Fairmont Olympic Hotel and scheduling a tour.

What we love about a Fairmont Olympic Weddings.

A: How every room you can use throughout the day has it’s own unique vibe to it. I love how this makes for a diverse collage of film backdrops.

Tip: There is a parking garage with an exposed top level about a block to the Northwest. This is a great place for Sunset photos with a downtown city vibe and to catch a quick breather of alone time.

Q: How long before your wedding should you be trying to book the Fairmont Hotel for your wedding?

A: You should try to book the Fairmont hotel 1-3 years in advance of your wedding to guarantee your choice of date. If you can be flexible having your wedding on a Friday, Sunday, or mid-week will allow you to book closer to your wedding day because there is less demand for these dates.

Washington Athletic Club Wedding

Anna and Kevin’s storybook Washington Athletic Club Wedding in Seattle, WA

Washington Athletic Club Wedding reception

The Washington Athletic Club or WAC is a historical landmark in Seattle offering a premiere luxury wedding setting with the nicest staff in the city.

For me, Anna and Kevin’s wedding began with a photo & video session on their en-suite balcony of the Washington Athletic Club. It was awesome being able to step out to out the room and be up there with the tops of the Seattle skyline. Through a slice in the buildings you could even see the ferries pass by. The still from their film wedding teaser film to the right is was taken from there.

The Washington Athletic Club (WAC) is a historic venue in downtown Seattle. In my opinion it has the perfect balance of convenience, luxury, and well run management for a wedding venue. As a wedding videographer this is the perfect venue; no fuss, just a lot of wedding goodness. Every corner of the WAC is meticulously designed. Making it an ideal choice for couples seeking a high-end backdrop to their wedding. My favorite details are the ballroom with it’s canopy of chandeliers, the library which we used for family photos, and the en-suite rooftop balcony.

One of my personal highlights of working weddings at the Washington Athletic Club is the exceptional staff. From the moment I arrived, their warmth and professionalism made me feel welcome. I knew they were always available even if I just needed a hand. If a vendor is treated like such a valued guest I can expect the actual guest experience is fantastic.

Georgetown Ballroom wedding videography in Seattle

Capturing Timeless Moments: An Enchanting Wedding at Georgetown Ballroom

A Seattle venue that delivers an original ambience of soft reds, neon, and that unique charm you are looking for.

The Georgetown Ballroom is nestled in the historic but newly fashionable red-brick South Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown. Its vintage charm, contemporary elegance, and eclectic decor make it one of my favorite Seattle wedding venues. I always find weddings here seem more relaxed and fun. I think the art and the vibrate color pallet of the venue puts guests at ease from the social pressure of a super formal wedding and let’s them let loose faster. The surprisingly lush and private backyard patio also allows for a relaxing change of pace and convenient family photo location.

In terms of wedding day amenities the Georgetown Ballroom has everything you need for a self-contained wedding. There are getting ready areas for two separate groups, each up a flight of stairs. The courtyard, building exterior, or the Georgetown neighbor all offer good locations for the first look and photos. If you want to be adventurous, I also love the nearby Kubota Garden for the first look and photo session. The venue’s layout facilitates seamless transitions between the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception between the two main ballrooms. I think if you are planning a Seattle wedding and looking for a venue that is a little different then the Georgetown Ballroom is worth checking out.
