Port Gamble Wedding // Craig + Amanda


We’re excited to share Craig and Amanda’s enchanting Port Gamble Wedding, which was full of magical vibes!

Port Gamble Weddings and Events is a romantic and historical venue to hold a dream wedding. It is located in Sitcap County on the shores of Hood Canal, a short ride from Seattle. From stunning mountains to crystal clear water views, this venue has everything for a fairytale wedding. Sprawling green grasses, historic buildings, scenic ocean views, and unique architectural details make it a prime wedding venue in PNW. Port Gamble has two charming venues, the beautifully restored St. Paul’s Church and Hood Canal Vista Pavilion, which worked out perfectly for our gorgeous couple, Craig and Amanda. Their wedding was filled with so much love and timeless moments.

The wedding day started out with capturing beautiful details followed by lovely getting ready moments. Craig and Amanda looked so gorgeous and so in love. Once they were ready for a big day, the lovebirds shared a spectacular first look. We loved the big smiles that appeared on their faces when they looked at each other and shared a kiss.

Craig and Amanda had a magical waterfront ceremony on a manicured lawn featuring breathtaking views of Hood Canal. In addition, one of the best things about this gorgeous venue is that it offers multiple photography opportunities. Our Seattle wedding photographers expertly captured Craig and Amanda’s wedding portraits in all the excellent spots, including blooming flowers, scenic grass areas, meticulously renovated buildings, and stunning waterfront areas. You’ll definitely fall in love with this location after seeing their portraits!

Next, the reception was held on an adjacent tented terrace. Danny’s BBQ added to the magic in the reception by offering a delicious culinary experience. The catering was a perfect blend of taste with aesthetic brilliance. After the amazing dinner, everyone headed inside for the party and a lot of fun. As Puget Sound Strings played the music according to the crowd’s mood, the dance floor filled with lights and epic moves, and everyone danced the night away. It was a night to remember!

Please enjoy our favorites and stunning photos from the Port Gamble Wedding!
