I love fun, beautiful weddings with nice, easy going couples and this wedding video is no exception. A charming bride, a very personable groom, and a support staff of warm and friendly family members made this wedding video a delight to shoot and edit.
Both the”getting ready” part of the day as well as the reception took place at the Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle. This great location provided stunning views and gorgeous windows with great, natural light for the getting ready shots, and an exquisite dance hall for the large reception. My favorite moment of the day had to be the moment when the bride’s father saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. The joy in his eyes and tears streaming down his face told every emotion he was feeling, and I felt honored to be able to capture it on video.
The ceremony was held at Saint Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church in Lynnwood, Washington a few minutes north of downtown Seattle.
The couple also wanted drone videography incorporated into their wedding video, specifically a nice shot of them exiting the church as well as an overhead shot of the church during the reception which I was happy to coordinate and provide. The shorter winter day didn’t provide us much time for bridal party photos after the reception, but we were able to pop over to the Seattle arboretum for an hour or so to get some nice quiet moments with the bride and groom as well as some fun shots with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
The night concluded with singing and dancing from all in attendance as the bride and groom partied with their wedding guests into the wee hours of the night, before retiring to their hotel room upstairs.
