Tacoma Yacht Club Wedding // Kaia + Colin


Kaia and Colin’s Tacoma Yacht Club wedding was a celebration filled with timeless elegance and nautical charm. From the bride’s stunning V-neck A-line dress to the groom’s dashing dark blue suit. It was a memorable day with every detail meticulously executed to perfection. Let’s dive into the moments that made their wedding at the TYC truly special.

Makeup artist Katie Vander Woude and hairstylist Stephanie Anderson worked their magic, creating simple yet elegant looks for Kaia. Our professional photographers at Sound Originals took stunning portrait shots as the couple got ready.

The elegant nautical theme wove its way throughout the wedding, with thoughtful details that added a touch of maritime romance. Print Northwest, the talented invitation designers, crafted exquisite invitations that set the tone for the wedding, reflecting the nautical theme and inviting guests to share in the couple’s love story. “Message in a bottle” notes, navy blue and bronze table setups, driftwood candles, and anchor details on the tables created an atmosphere of seaside enchantment. Marissa Meyer, the day-of coordinator, ensured that every aspect was flawlessly executed.

Following the ceremony, heartfelt toasts were raised to celebrate their union. The party continued well into the night, with KOHOUT DJ Entertainment setting the perfect atmosphere and keeping the dance floor alive. The lively beats and energetic atmosphere made for a truly memorable celebration that had guests on their feet all night long. Tacoma Yacht Club catered for the night.

Kaia and Colin’s wedding was an extraordinary celebration. A special day that will forever hold a place in their hearts. May their journey as a married couple be as breathtaking and adventurous as their wedding day.
