Cheers David and Sarah! They tied the knot at their 25K Outdoor Wedding in Kirkland, Washington. Their reception was truly the gold standard for any backyard wedding. It was complete with amazing decor, and beautiful scenery. See their unique procession ceremony, and some epic reception moments including a guest striking a jaw-dropping pose in their video below!
This awesome wedding video was shot by the bride and groom’s guests. They had a fabulous time capturing the ceremony, and amazing reception moments with their own cameras along with the WeddingMix app.
It was appealing because we did not want the huge cost of a videographer, but we did want a video capturing the most important parts of the day. WeddingMix provided a happy medium. It was so special to be able to get videos and photos from the guests’ perspectives.”- Sarah

Advice from the bride!
1. What part of your wedding planning are you most proud of?
2. Where did you get married?
The ceremony was at our church, St. Katherine Orthodox Church, in Kirkland, WA. We loved being joined in marriage at a place that has such meaning and significance for us.
The reception was then held in the backyard of my parents’ house, where I grew up, in Redmond, WA. I had always dreamed of getting married in that backyard, so it was incredible to be able to make that happen. That venue was perfect for our day. We strung up lights to border the edge of the yard and make a dance floor in the grass. With all of the flowers we used, it really felt like a fairy tale.
3. Why was using WeddingMix appealing for your big day?
It was appealing because we did not want the huge cost of a videographer, but we did want a video capturing the most important parts of the day. WeddingMix provided a happy medium. It was so special to be able to get videos and photos from the guests’ perspectives.
4. What were the most important moments that WeddingMix was able to capture on your special day?
I am especially thankful that our guests were able to get videos of the toasts. The words of my maid of honor and my husband’s eldest brother meant so much to both of us.
It is also amazing that we have a video of The Dance of Isaiah (the procession in the Orthodox Wedding Ceremony where the husband and wife symbolically take their first steps as a married couple).
