Katherine & Nathanial - Bainbridge Island Wedding Videography
Wedding Videography taken on Bainbridge Island.
To shoot on Bainbridge Island is a dream come true for a videographer. Even though the island is only an hour ferry ride from Seattle, when you land on Bainbridge Island you feel like you've stepped into a different world. The land is hilly and heavily forested, the roads are winding with only two lanes. No highways, no endless sea of strangers. All of a sudden your in the beautiful countryside.
Another great thing about Bainbridge Island is that you still have amazing views of Seattle and of Mount Rainier. I was not prepared for that and was pleasantly surprised. The island is really romantic making it a perfect spot to get married. There are great restaurants, really interesting Air BNB options, and of course being an island, you are surrounded by the beautiful bay which is teaming with boats of all sizes. It’s really refreshing.
The local population on Bainbridge is an interesting mix. It seems that half the population are very wealthy people who likely made some money working for Microsoft or Boeing and the other half are hippies that started moving out to the island in the 1960s. It gives it an interesting mix. The wealthy and the counterculture, living in a sort of harmony.
Katherine and Nate made a wedding on Bainbridge even more interesting by having it take place at an environmental learning center called IslandWood. IslandWood is on a 250 acre property that includes forested trails, a pond, meadow, garden, two treehouses, a suspension bridge and a canopy tower!Katherine had been a teacher at IslandWood before she met Nate so the location was extra special for them.
Katherine and Nate had their first look on the suspension bridge. This bridge was easily 30 feet in the air in the middle. It almost seemed that Nate was floating while he was waiting to see the bride for the first time. It was a really magical location and a really romantic moment.
The ceremony look place under an alter that Nate had built. How cool is that! It was clear that the love was all around them that day. The wedding was great, the speeches brought tears, and people had a really great time.
