Sitting in my car on a drizzly June morning, waiting and pleading with the sun to come out I wondered what my first social distancing wedding would feel like. A few minutes later the sun broke and a while after that I saw a well dressed man with a huge smile on his face strolling down the hill. From that moment on I forgot about worries and remembered why I do this, love. On that beach, there wasn’t a covid backup plan of a wedding, there was the real thing to its fullest extent. I couldn’t have been more honored to be a little part of James and Ron’s big day and I am looking forward to the rest of this season whatever it may be with confidence, optimism, and a lot of love. I also would like to do a shout out to David Cooper from Forever, Together – Western Washington Wedding Officiants for performing the lovely ceremony.
Do you want to have a wedding that is away from all of the traffic, buildings, and noise of the big city but you also don’t want to make all your guests drive for multiple hours to get there? Well the Robinswood House-City of Bellevue is the venue for you. This idylic venue is right next to downtown Bellevue but you would never know it. The Robinswood House is hidden away in a small park and surrounded by massive hedges. I love the gardens around this property and the tree where you setup the ceremony is perfect. If you every thought about getting married under a beautiful tree look no further 🙂 There is plenty of space for getting ready here and ample photo/video spots. It is an intimate space but that didn’t stop Leslie and James from packing in a ton of people and a the full Michael Benson Band to rock the night away.
An unbeatable view, breath taking flowers, and a gorgeous couple was the recipe for a perfect day at The Golf Club at Newcastle. It’s no wonder this wedding was picked up by Modern Weddings for publication. You can check out the full story of this here: https://modernweddings.com/2019/10/aya-maxs-romantic-outdoor-wedding/.
The Golf Club at Newcastle is always one of my favorite places as a wedding videographer to film a wedding video because it has all the convenience of a hotel for a large gala wedding but unlike many hotels it has a ton of natural light and views which make taking videos/photo a breeze. Also it is super easy to get to which is a big plus for Sunday weddings. Be sure to check out the flowers in this video by Courtney Kroymann because they are amazing!
Ever wonder where is the best waterfront wedding location is near Seattle? If this is you then you have to check out the Woodmark hotel in Kirkland WA. This is one of my all time favorite locations for wedding videography.
Here is a beautiful example of a spring wedding filmed in 2019 from the Woodmark Hotel. Congrats to Katie and Tim!
