A Wedding in Guemes Island from the Summer of 2002

Looking back through brides and grooms from past years and locating video of their Weddings brings back memories.    I seem to remember events that stand out from others and this one was on a small beautiful island in the San Juans minutes from Anacortes.    Here is the video, courtesy of Kelley Moore Events,  Lifestyle Expert seen on her show Moore to Life.

Halpin/Grove Wedding:
Guemes Island offers breathtaking views, and provided the perfect backdrop for Christie and Jason Grove’s wedding. Having spent a significant part of their relationship together on the Island, it was a natural choice for their wedding. It was also an opportunity for Christie and Jason to share something that was important to them, and to their families, with their guests. With the sun setting on the water, they were married and afterwards guests walked down a candlelit path to the tent where they celebrated until the Garlic French fries and Calamari came out at midnight.

Shane & Chantels Wedding at the Sanders Mansion

Shane and Chantel were married outdoors at the Sanders Mansion on Spring Hill.  Robert Miller has done a great job in developing this farm for ceremonies and receptions.   With upper and lower tent areas that can accomodate 200 guests at each location, you can choose what background you want for your Wedding.   The weather was great for the ceremony but by the time the reception started it was raining and thundering.   During the dinner, a loud crack of thunder just a few hundred yards away had guests awake in their seats.   Following that awakening, the thunder died down as the party picked up under the lower tent.   Christie’s Catering served up a wonderful meal and the drinks for the evening.    Shane and Chantel departed on their way to Las Vegas for the week!!!

I celebrated Independence Day with Julie and Jed on their Wedding Day while enjoying the sights and sounds of the fireworks around the Seattle.   We were able to see fireworks in Renton, Bellevue and Seattle from the top of Newcastle.   The Golf Club at Newcastle always provides one the most enjoyable views of the area.   Michelle Moore, the photographer will have great photos for the evening.

Jeff & Kim’s Wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club

Kim and Jeff have great personalities!    This was a traditional, classy and relaxed Wedding.    The Seattle Tennis Club was a perfect setting on a beautiful January day for a couple deserving of it on their Wedding Day.        The Wedding was just right for a short and but fitting Ceremony.   Following in the foyer was a cocktail party with Kim and Jeff coming down the staircase with their grand entrance.   The STC staff turned the ceremony room into a formal dining area for their guests in less than 30 minutes (Wow, great job).   Their photographer Carol Harrold was there until the very end of the party, which is always great.   Please take a moment to check out her wonderful photos of Jeff and Kim.
