Kristine and Steve were married on August 20, 2011 at The Gig Harbor Golf Club on an amazingly beautiful summer day. They are golfers so getting married at a golf course was key for them. It was great because the golf club put the ceremony right out on the golf course with the most amazing view of Mount Rainier as the backdrop to the ceremony.
Before the ceremony, while Kristine was getting hair and make-up done, the guys decided they needed some stress release so they went out and did some target practice with their guns. In fact, they felled a tree by shooting it. It is always amazing how much more relaxed the groom is when he does some cool activity in the morning before getting dressed.
Once everyone was ready, we had a sweet first look with Kristine and Steve underneath one of the trees on the golf course, then we had a great time with the wedding party all around the property. We even played on the putting green and had a really good time. Their wedding party was a little different because they mixed it up with guys and girls. Kristine had a bridesman and Steve had two groomswomen in the wedding. This seems to be a new trend and we think it is really cool to have the people that are closest to you stand up for you no matter if they are guys or gals. After our fun time with the wedding party, we then climbed into golf carts with Kristine and Steve for a romantic pictorial with them around the golf course.
Taking advantage of being on a golf course, a golf cart was also used during the ceremony as Kristine’s dad drove Kristine to the ceremony before walking her down the aisle where they got married with the backdrop of Mount Rainier. Their reception was really fun with Kristine and her maid of honor singing some of their favorite songs while dancing. We ended the night with Kristine and Steve driving off in Steve’s dad’s car, once they got all of the saran wrap off of it, to head to the hotel for going across the threshold shots at the hotel.
We had a great time being a part of their day and hope you enjoy seeing some of our favorite moments from their wedding day!
