On Saturday July 3rd I had the opportunity to officiate at Jeff and Dawn Brundage’s wedding celebration held at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place (Tacoma, Wa.).

The course offers a spacious tent for either the wedding (if incliment weather) or reception, featuring an excellent view of the fairways below and the spectacular Puget Sound.  The Brundage’s wedding was timed to be held near sunset, and as you may imagine the sun rays reflecting off of the water was brilliant.

Jeff and Dawn elected to have the ceremony outside on the patio so that the guests could observe the setting sun and the photos would feature the stunning view.  The groom and his groomsmen were all attired with matching Hawaiian shirts, complete with dark sunglasses!

One of the great features of this celebration was that the evening began about 6pm with the bride and groom receiving their guests in the tent with background music playing and a dinner buffet line.  Guests were able to say hello to the Brundages, get a plate of food, and sit down to mingle with others until the ceremony held later.  Then toward sunset, we stepped out onto the patio for the ceremony (around 8pm), then headed back to the tent for the cutting of the cake.  There were even guest gifts at each table place made of sparklers bundled together – the kids (both young and old) enjoyed lighting these as you might well imagine! 

Congratulations Jeff and Dawn!
