Local couples frequently ask me where to have a wedding on the waterfront of Gig Harbor?
Indeed we have a very low inventory of waterfront venues which is sad because I would so love to see home town couples keep their wedding in beautiful Gig Harbor and utilize our local vendors. So, if you have a waterfront venue please contact me.
Showcase Wedding in downtown Gig Harbor
I would like to share with you a wedding that was recently held in downtown Gig Harbor at the Club @ the Boatyard using LOCAL photographers Mike & Karen Willet. They own a studio right here in Gig Harbor called Unique Moments Photography, located at 7116 Stinson Ave, just 6 blocks from the Gig Harbor Marina.
The bride arrived at 3pm to the venue in her uncles custom hot rod truck. It turned out to be one of those sweet bright sunny harbor days that actually makes capturing pictures on the water difficult. Since the photographer knows our community and other waterfront location options they recommended going 4 blocks to the Austin Estuary for the photo shoot. A true bonus for going with local pros!
Mike Willet of Unique Moments quoted “The Club@ The Boatyard at the Gig Harbor Marina is an awesome location to have a wedding reception. Guests are right on the water and enjoy the downtown feel. It is great to capture a wedding in your hometown”. See below some of the 575 images that Unique Moments delivered to the bride & groom.
Also note that the Gig Harbor Marina has some very unique places to stay right next to the wedding venue for the honeymoon or a place for guests to stay on the water. Check out the Guesthouse @ the Boatyard and the most unique place to stay the Yacht the Suite Dreams .
Here are some of those great photo’s:
