Mi Familia – A Golden Anniversary Celebration

Well, just a personal note.

Last week was my parents 50th anniversary. 50 years of wedded bliss. Can you believe it?? A rare event these days to say the least. Anyway, last night we celebrated with a little dinner party with immediate family. What a great night! We don’t get together often enough, so this was a wonderful time to come together and celebrate the reason that every single one of the people in these pictures is here.

So thanks, Mom & Dad, for deciding to spend the rest of your lives together and for being great role models of marriage to us all.

Love you guys!

Blessings,

Chris.

Getting Married in Pierce County, WA?

So 2010 is the year that you are planning to get married? Maybe 2011 or 2012? Or maybe you’re already married. Great! Congratulations.

Well, we are in the process of collecting nominations for 10 best places to get married in Pierce County, WA (we’re actually planning to produce a video that features these places). So if you have your venue or church picked out, let us know what it is and where it is so we can add it to our list. (of course, it helps in the venue is beautiful and not your backyard). At the top of our list so far is Laurel Creek Manor and Rock Creek Gardens.

So let us know your thoughts. Drop us an email at info@chrismckennaphotography or info@mckennavideo.com or look us up on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/mckennavideophoto ) and leave a note there.

We look forward to hearing from you. And we promise not to try and sell you something–unless you want us to. 🙂

Blessings,

Chris.

Laurel Creek Manor – Another Great Place to Get Married

A few weeks back, we had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at one of the nicest places that we’ve ever had the privilege to shoot at: Laurel Creek Manor.

As I previously posted, Dee and Zac’s wedding was great. They were a great couple and with this awesome wedding venue (and also for other events) it was truly one of the highlights of our wedding photography career.

Laurel Creek Manor, located in Sumner, WA, has everything that a bride and groom could want in a venue. It has a large, beautiful suite that the bride can use to get ready, a separate groom’s area, lots of windows with great light, manicured gardens, and large, outdoor ceremony and reception area, and plenty of room to move indoors should the weather take a turn for the worse. If you saw our previous entry, you’ll notice that there are a lot of areas to get some unique and wonderful photographs. Laurel and Kirsten were great to work with as well as the rest of the staff.

I would recommend Laurel Creek Manor to any couple who are looking for a great venue. Visit them online at http://www.laurelcreekmanor.com/ .

Enjoy the video!

Blessings,

Chris.

So we are asking you to help us acheive the #1 spot in voting. Click on the banner above and you will be taken to our profile in the BOWW website, where you can vote for us.

One of the Best New Places to get Married in Puyallup, WA

We are happy to help promote Rock Creek Gardens as one of the best places in Puyallup, WA to get married.

We met Gracie at a Chamber of Commerce function a few weeks back and she invited us out to come tour their new facility. And what can we say-we were blown away by how incredibly beautiful this facility is. Rock Creek Gardens provides 5 acres of secluded gardens featuring Koi-filled ponds, beautiful waterfalls, and luscious green lawns nestled among some soaring evergreens.

They offer:

  • a newly renovated bridal suite;
  • ceremony and reception seating for up to 300 guests;
  • rental of white reception tents, banquet and buffet tables, ceremony and reception chairs;
  • a catering room;
  • onsite parking attendants and parking for up to 150 cars;
  • complete privacy;
  • and absolutely endless opportunities for pictures.

If you are in the need of a venue for any occasion, we would highly recommend you consider looking at Rock Creek Gardens. www.rockcreekgardensvenue.com 253-389-2304.

God’s blessings.
