Wow! Time sure does fly by fast when you’re having a good time! Wedding videography is a year-round job, with its spikes during the spring and summer for obvious reasons (at least here in the Pacific Northwest) and we get to see a few just about every week of the year! One of the best things about our job is being able to see so much of our state. From stunning hotels, to accommodating athletic clubs, out to the fields and meadows and a few new locations that surely surprised us, 2018 has been a wonderful year so far.
Let’s break down our five favorite weddings of 2018 thus far!
Van Cise Wedding, 3/10, Trinity Tree Farm
Who would’ve thought that getting married at a Christmas Tree farm on the verge of Spring, with just little sproutlings popping up, would be such a wonderful idea? The Van Cise wedding took us out to Trinity Tree Farm near Issaquah for a day of fresh starts, new beginnings, and the decade-in-the-making marriage between Angelina and Taylor. What stands out most from the day, however, are the tear-inducing vows they share for each other that will surely make you cry, too.
Wurtz Wedding, 05/05, Ballard Locks
A new venue for us–and also one we never would’ve thought of–was the Ballard Locks. For those of you unfamiliar with Seattle, these water gates allow transportation to and from the ocean from Lake Union. For the Wurtz it was a gorgeous day, accented with our drone footage, that saw everyone looking spiffy in grey suits and lilac dresses. With a balloon arch in a little clearing, Jazmyn and Josh tied to knot in front of their friends and family in the most adorable fashion.
McGee Wedding, 01/28, Sentinel Hotel
Taking a road trip down to our southerly neighbor, Portland, is always a grand time, this time even more so. The so-called “Most Storied Hotel” and National Historic Landmark,The Sentinel, played host to the McGee’s truly spectacular wedding; a day of celebration, dancing and near-royalty decorations. After the satisfying crush of the ceremonial glass (and most importantly the kiss), Greg and Allie were officially married. All in all, it was one of the most unforgettable weddings we’ve been to in quite some time!
Foster Wedding, 02/17, Washington Athletic Club
The Fosters really lucked out with their February wedding, held at the Washington Athletic Club, as there was sun shining bright in the sky. Opting for drone footage, the beautiful Seattle waterfront was truly a marvel. Sipping mimosas, posing in front of the utterly sophisticated hallways and bookshelves of the Club, and looking dapper while doing so, occupied us for most of the morning. Failing to hold back his tears, Cory happily watched his wife-to-be walk down the aisle for a touching ceremony. However, it was the hilarious garter dance and the s’more bar, that really make this one stand out for us.
May Wedding, 05/06, Hidden Meadows
The May’s got married in May, which is certainly the easiest way to remember your anniversary, but their wedding as a whole already proved to be unforgettable. With perfectly warm weather, the outdoor ceremony which featured the bridesmaids and groomsmen rocking beige dresses and grey suits, was a lovely spectacle. With their union sealed, they officially kissed and become husband and wife. What we loved most were the photoshoots with the guys on the train tracks as they puffed on cigars like true gents.
