Cory & Rachel’s Wedding at Camp Korey

Cory & Rachel enjoy the country, so it was a natural to plan their Wedding at Camp Korey.   Her colors were orange with orange ribbons on chairs, orange uplighting on pillars, orange mason jars with gold fish, orange vases with tulips in them (they to were orange).   With help from their families they pulled off a great wedding day and still stayed within budget.   Enjoy their Photos.


Camp Korey is such a great location for a large Wedding Party.   It has so much to offer a couple with 200+ on their guest list.   With a beautiful manicured garden for your ceremony, golf course sized lawns for your cocktail hour and open or covered venues for your reception, it’s all there.    Gina and her staff are easy to with and take care of the details.

Here are the comments from the Mother of the Groom who is the Chef at Camp Korey.  (They were going to do the music themselves but she convinced the brides family to hire a DJ.   In addition, she had to leave 3 hours early do a health condition.)  ” Gary,   A special Thank You for your services, they were SPOT ON.  I will recommend you to anyone I know needing a DJ.  Thank you for taking over,  please send me some business cards to my address. I think they got it how hard it would have been to do ourselves. I wish I could of boogied with the rest but I was so sick that day it was a miracle everything on the food end went well, thank goodness for family and friends.” fondly,  Mim

I would add that lighting has really matured this year and that Weddings require some type of accent lighting to reflect on the No. 1 trend of adding Elegance.


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.
