Unique moments photography from Gig Harbor Washington traveled to the McCormick woods Golf Club in port orchard to capture Kim and Aaron’s awesome summer wedding. There is so much we want to share about this wedding. McCormick woods is a beautiful venue to have your wedding at. The weddings will take place on the lake in front of the club house and the view of the lake and the set up for the actual wedding itself is really beautiful. You cant miss with this venue. Your guests will love the views.
The staff at McCormick woods is top notch and very accommodating for families and vendors involved with weddings. This wedding day started out with a trip for the girls to Studio Six salon and spa in Gig Harbor for Hair and make up. Studio six is one of the Salons we recommend. All the staff are certified with the state of Washington, The make up artists know what they are doing and they are always on Time. We cant tell you how many wedding timelines have been ruined by inexperienced make up artists. All of the girls at Studio six are great and the salon owner is dedicated to keeping bridal parties on the Timeline.
After Hair and make up was completed, it was a short trip to the Golf club where Kim and Aaron got ready. The make up/getting ready rooms at McCormick woods are very nice with plenty of space and the staff brings in lunch and snacks for the bridal party members. This is a super nice gesture especially when dinner is not till 5:30PM. Its great to keep everyone hydrated and comfortable.
Kim and Aaron had a wonderful first look and then the bridal party and parents went to the lake to capture formals before the ceremony
There is not a lot of shade available for midday photography needs so shooting on the water mid day means your going to need Off camera flash set ups to compete with the sun. It is extremely bright on the lake but a good off camera flash set up will get photographers great results. Ceremony time was 4:00PM and bright light was the call for the day for this ceremony.
The couple had 2 officiants for the ceremony and this couple followed scripture and washed each others feet as the example set by Jesus Christ in the bible. It was a wonderful highlight of the ceremony. Personal vows were exchanged, rings were exchanged, and after a kiss for luck, this couple rushed off to the clubhouse to P_A_R_T_Y the night away.
Reception highlights included a cake cutting, speeches, first dances for bride and groom, father daughter dance and a mom son dance. We ran out to capture some sun set photos before the dancing started as the sun was set and down by 7:40PM. The food that was served was excellent so the McCormick Woods kitchen staff is really top notch. Everyone loved the meal that was provided for the guests.
This wedding was a home run in so many ways. You had an awesome venue, a beautiful couple, awesome supporting loving families, great friends and grandparents. The dance floor was crowded all night, the food and deserts were excellent, and the staff at McCormick woods was on top of everything. We had a total blast with Kim and Aaron and their families and cant wait to see picture selections for the album. McCormick Woods and their sister club, The Gold Mountain golf club are the two top golf club venues for the Gig Harbor, Port Orchard and Bremerton areas. You cant go wrong with either one. We cant wait to go back.
