“Reid was recommended to us through a good friend, and he did not disappoint! Not only was he awesome to work with, he made our wedding highlight video within DAYS… it perfectly captured the moments we loved most about our special day. Our guests of the wedding and even friends who did not attend the wedding all said the video made them feel like they were there and made them both cry (happy tears) and laugh at the same time. We are so happy we had a videographer, but even more happy we had someone so easy to work with. I called him the day of to tell him that hair and makeup was running earlier than scheduled and he showed up early enough to catch the end of me getting ready with the makeup artist, he was so flexible!”
For as many weddings as we’ve done, the altitude reached at The Golf Club at Newcastle is certainly up there with the “highest” weddings we’ve shot. There really is no beating the extraordinarily exceptional views provided up there in the hills. With panoramas of the Sound, Seattle, and outlying towns, the Golf Club has become one of our most frequent stomping grounds—proposals, weddings, you name it––and we’re always excited to get another glimpse of that awe-inspiring view.
Heading up the winding road to Newcastle for Christina and Tanuj’s big day, the morning was greeted by some clouds. Soon, however, they rolled away to reveal the glistening blue skies behind them. As early morning whiskey shots got the boys feeling extra toasty on the last day of August, there was a very laid back feeling to the day. After shooting some pool and lounging around while the ladies got decked out in their lovely pink dresses, the boys rode up outside sporting their best shades.
Setting up for the first look, which was situated on the viewing area that features the property’s most iconic views of the region, the bride and groom met against the massive backdrop of King County and beyond. The look of absolute jubilation that appears on Tanuj’s face as he turns around to greet his bride is one for the scrapbook. Sharing a hug and a kiss, the two posed for some shots overlooking the region before heading off around the state for more breathtaking photos and video. Luckily there were no stray balls that got in the way from the golf course, not a “fore” was to be heard!
Reuniting with the bridal party, the gang messed around on the overlook as they lifted each other up and rocked out some of the silliest poses you could think of. The wedding itself saw both sides of the family sitting together, this wedding also featured one of the more promising new traditions in weddings: a sign that read “Choose a seat, not a side.” After a beautiful ceremony that had heartfelt, soul-touching words of love and devotion, Christina and Tanuj sealed the deal with a kiss and a long set of promises that reveal the depth of their love.
Splitting their reception between St. Andrew’s ballroom for dinner and the tented ceremony space outside, there was certainly enough room for everyone to fit on the dance floor! DJ Chris Graves transformed the traditionally white interior of the tent outside to a glowing ember red. As the reception got underway, the shortening summer day dwindled away as Fall slowly approached. Before it got too dark, we headed outside once again with Christina and Tanuj as they danced and dipped on a little hill with the setting sun, Seattle, and the mountains reaching out miles behind them just like their future. With the Newcastle bagpiper and all, the newlyweds were ready to embark on their future.
Thank you again to Tanuj and Christina! We hope you are enjoying the married life and have had an excellent first six months! Have any questions or concerns? Let us know in the comments below! We are always looking to improve!
