One day, about a year ago, a young lady named Rachel walked in to 24 Hour Fitness to see about signing up for a membership. When she arrived back home later in the day, she told her parents that she had met the man she was going to marry. His name was Austin, and yesterday they were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Golf Club at Newcastle. There are so many amazing places in Seattle to have a wedding, but The Golf Club at Newcastle has been considered one of THE best places for many years. The tent is beautiful, the food is great, the staff is awesome, the view and sunsets just can’t be beat and we truly enjoy filming weddings there!
To add to the serendipity, this past weekend also happened to be SeaFair….in Seattle it is a BIG weekend full of Hydroplane races and the Blue Angels flying over Lake Washington. When Austin’s mother married his step-dad, it was also SeaFair weekend with the Blue Angels flying overhead. How cool is that?
As Rachel was getting dressed yesterday, Austin had a small package delivered to her. It was a book that he had been writing in since they met. He would write down his thoughts and feelings about their relationship and had left some special place for their wedding day. As Rachel read the entry for that day, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place and the bridesmaids asked if he had a brother! It was just so sweet and set the tone for the entire day.
I hope you enjoy watching this celebratory Same Day Edit as much as I enjoyed putting it together! I can’t get the song out of my head…it just makes me smile! Congratulations Rachel and Austin, and thank you Suzi for asking us to capture the day and for welcoming us like a member of your family. You are wonderful!
P.S. for those of you who want to know the techy stuff, about 75% of this video was shot on the Canon 5D Mark II with Canon 24mm, 50mm and 70-200mm lenses.
