“Reid was incredibly quick to respond during the whole process, and the videographer at the wedding was in a great mood – super relaxed & a great communicator. I didn’t even notice them being around from the ceremony on. They fit in well in the background. Video is great quality!”
It’s always fun to discover a new wedding venue that isn’t too far from where we’re located, especially one that’s as great as Tibbetts Creek Manor. Just a few miles south of Lake Sammamish, this 7,000-square-foot venue offers both indoor and outdoor receptions (with the assistance of tents) and provides ample space, seating and tables for all of your needs!
As wonderful of a holiday as Cinco de Mayo is, we typically don’t associate with weddings. For the Hines, whether or not they truly planned it to be on the day typically associated with Mexican Independence, (the date is actually observed to commemorate the Mexican Army‘s unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862), it’s just an even easier way to remember their anniversary. A mostly quiet, nearly stress-free morning had the bride and groom getting all dolled up for their big day out at Tibbetts Creek Manor. From the little tyke (who rocked a jacket-less getup and bow tie) all the way up to the more sophisticated, all of the boys looked dashing in their suits.
Getting a little goofy with the boys before the ceremony, Bobby and his groomsmen posed around the area with a fair amount of fun. Their poses and smiles were enough to burn away any stress or unease about what was to come. When it was time for the ceremony, the dapper little ring bearer made his way down the aisle shortly before Rachel, who left the whole role—especially her groom—speechless.
Trying not to make his sheer excitement too obvious, the groom was able to turn it all into bashfulness. And with a wonderful ceremony, with a soul-touching sermon from the officiant, it was all sealed off with a kiss.
Heading outside for some group photos with the family and the bridal party, the happiness was palpable. Everyone was full of smiles and bliss, while the bridesmaids looked wonderful in their blue-green dresses. Luckily, we were able to get the newlyweds alone for a bit as they posed amongst the roses, flowers, and generally gorgeous scenery offered by Tibbetts Creek Manor.
As it was time to go inside to sign paperwork, the rest of the group meandered around sipping beer and waiting for the DJ to announce the arrival of the newlyweds. After cutting their utterly delectable cake, the newlyweds hit the dance-floor, holding each other closely. Once the bride’s father came out, the music got pumping for one of our favorite series of parent-child dances.
With enough inspiration from the newlyweds and their families, the rest of the group got right on up to join in on the fun. As they danced the hours away, the good times kept rolling and rolling, even if some of the little kids got tuckered out.
Alas, the night eventually had to come to an end, but we’d love to thank the Hines’ for choosing Best Made Videos to film their wedding! It was a true delight getting to spend your big day with you!
