Elope (Get Married!) on a Washington State Ferry!

Posted on September 24, 2015 by Annemarie

ferryOne of the most favorite “elopement” venues in the Pacific Northwest is on a Washington State Ferry! Simply, some of my most precious and intimate ceremonies have been with couples who decided on getting married on a Washington State Ferry run, most likely from Seattle to Bainbridge Island or Seattle to Bremerton.  
The best part is, this opportunity is free!  You do need to get permission from the Washington State Ferry System and once you do this, you can work out all details with your Officiant for a fabulous ferry wedding!

A Glorious Washington State Ferry Wedding for Mark and Lorena, from Seattle to Bainbridge Island!

Posted on July 17, 2015 by Annemarie

It was just the very best moment yesterday afternoon on the Washington State ferry as two lovebirds from the Mid-West eloped to Seattle to be married!  MarkLorenaMcKown

The setting was spectacular as the ferry pulled away from Coleman dock.  With hundreds of happy ferry going witnesses, Mark and Lorena exchanged beautiful words and vows on the back of the ferry, with Seattle as their back-drop.

Joined by five happy friends and a photographer, it was just one of “those moments” when you know all is right with the world.

Like Jocelyn and Rodney’s wedding (see below), I love a ferry wedding.  It’s elegant, easy and a gift from the Washington State Ferry System…i.e., it’s free!

Elope To Seattle – Get Married on a Washington State Ferry!

Posted on February 18, 2014 by Annemarie

As we get closer to Spring, it’s wedding time for many couples on a Washington State Ferry!  Just as Andrew and Jenny were married on the bow of the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island, you could be, to!

The best part is the Washington State Ferry System offers this opportunity at no charge.  You just have to work your wedding ceremony around non-peak travel times (i.e. morning or afternoon “rush hour.”

So for more information on getting hitched on the water, en route to Bainbridge Island, Bremerton or Whidbey Island, give me a call at 425.922.1325.  So very fun!

A Sweet Elopement On The Washington State Ferry And 100+ Guests!

Posted on March 15, 2012 by Annemarie

Peter and Julie.  A loving, devoted, fun, inspiring and gorgeous couple.

Julie’s Dad, who has since passed away, was a Captain on Washington State Ferries years.

Living on Bainbridge Island, Peter and Julie decided to “elope” on the 12:20 p.m. ferry to Seattle on a sunny Saturday, March 3rd.

They invited their their closest people.  They offered invitations to friends to join them – thinking few would show up.  Wrong!

100+ friends gathered to join the couple for their vows as the ferry made it’s way to Seattle.

Very fun.  Very Peter and Julie.  So happy to join in this wonderful life moment!
