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.
I love filming at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington. They have amazing getting ready rooms, the ceremony and backup ceremony spots have tons of light, and the reception space is killer for 200+ people weddings. Did I even mention the view looking north on lake Washington with the Seattle skyline just peaking through? This venue really has it all.

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.
TreeHouse Point has to be the most unique wedding venue in all of Washington. I mean Tree houses who doesn’t love that? What a romantic way to spend your first night as a married couple together. Also the video footage and photos are particularly cool here; you are basically guaranteed to impress all of your guests just on location alone 🙂
I had the pleasure of filming Arianeh & Jacob’s wedding here which actually began at Salish Lodge & Spa for getting ready and then moved to TreeHouse Point for the ceremony and reception. Tree house point does have a getting ready spot for a small group but for big parties it is usually easier to get ready at another location and then do the final touches like getting your dress on at Tree house point . With Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge about 15 minutes down the road these two are the perfect combo. Arianeh & Jacob’s wedding was a lush, crystal and forest inspired wedding so, so many gorgeous details. Be sure to check out the video so you can see how amazing their ceremony was and all of the photo spots.
Nowhere could filming wedding videos be simpler and more joyful then at Rein Fire Ranch. Literally every direction you look, from the dense green evergreen forests to stunning mountain peaks, and did I say horses cause yea they got that. Any bride that is into horses this is your venue. As a wedding videographer I love the country charm of this place and it was perfect for Kayla and Cameron who tied the knot here in early summer.
