Gold Mountain Golf Club | Intimate Bremerton Wedding Photographer

If I could only tell you all of the factors that came into play in order for me to capture Adara + Tyler’s wedding at Gold Mountain Golf Club…you probably wouldn’t believe me! Ever since I met Adara at her best friend’s wedding last year, I was drawn to her energy and wanted to be her friend! She is hands down the sweetest person, always smiling and laughing!

I am SO happy the stars aligned to be able to capture their beautiful day. Tyler had me cracking up all day long…his personality equally as amazing as Adaras’ – it’s no wonder they’re the perfect pair. 

Adara and Tyler’s closest friends and family gathered in the middle of the woods for the most intimate and beautiful ceremony. When I asked Adara what inspired their wedding day, this is what she said…

“We knew that we wanted our ceremony in the woods, so we hunted out venues until we found Gold Mountain Golf Club. We love the moodiness of the Washington forests, so we chose light grey as our accent color with greenery to keep to the theme of the woods.”

It truly was the most perfect day. We had sunshine, clouds, beautiful forests and donuts! The donuts were a big hit with the guests and you could say I was one happy photographer too!

Adara + Tyler – there are so many adventures coming your way this year and I have no doubt that each of you have found the perfect person to walk through each of them together! Thank you for having me there!

“Tyler and I both agree that our favorite part of the day was our first look, getting to see and spend that time with each other. It was the calm before the excitement of the rest day.”

“I don’t know if I would say our wedding “stands out”, but I think being surrounded by the trees at the ceremony site made an impression on our guests. I also had a lot of guests say they enjoyed how intimate the wedding was, that everyone felt that they were able to have a moment with Tyler and I. Several guests also remarked on the minimal decor, saying that it definitely lived up to the less is more idea. People also loved the donuts instead of cake.”

“We caught the ferry to Seattle after the wedding to stay at a hotel in the city that night. On the ferry ride is when we read each other our personal vows we had written. Something about the ferry and finally getting to just be the two of us after a long day was just really romantic. Tyler and I tend to be more private, so sharing our written words with just the two of us was just a meaningful moment.”

“First piece of advice: HIRE MEGAN! You won’t regret it Second piece of advice: We were lucky enough to find a venue that was all inclusive (tables, chairs, linens, food, alcohol, clean up except for items you bring). It truly made wedding planning so much easier and less stressful knowing that one vendor was taking care of so much. Third piece of advice: wedding planning can be fun, but it can also be stressful because of all of the expectations. When planning, remember the real reason of the wedding,  to marry the love of your life.”

“Oh my gosh, all of my vendors completely knocked it out of the park. My hair and make up artists both helped me to feel my best for the day. My venue provided a day of coordinator who took care of everything! I literally had nothing to worry about, which made the day so much less stressful. They also made the delicious food! My florist captured my vision perfectly, which I thought was impressive because we only communicated via email! And I can’t praise all of my vendors without praising you Megan! Our families were asking when and where they needed to be places and I gave them the schedule that you made up for that day! Your calm but strong demeanor let me know that my wedding was in good hands and that I had nothing to worry about once you were there and I cannot thank you enough for that!”
