You've heard brides say it - "the day was a blur" or  "it went by too fast", or "what? I missed grandpa dabbing on the dance floor?!" - these are just a few of the reasons why having a videographer at your wedding should be on your list of required vendors. While beautiful photographs capture a certain element of your wedding day, there's nothing like being able to look back and actually see and hear your father's toast or the serenade your fiance sang for you during the reception.
We're thrilled Unified Cinematic Videography will be showcasing their incredible video talents at The Hollywood Schoolhouse this year during the tour! Check out some of their work here and meet Michael Sunday, January 29th, 2017!

   "We LOVED the video! You did an amazing job and captured so many wonderful moments of the day! It was fun to watch and relive everything because I was definitely on an emotional high! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!" -Lindsey

"Michael is truly an artist. He did such a fantastic job capturing our wedding day and I couldn't be happier with the final product! I didn't know what to expect when hiring a videographer, but Michael's professionalism and creativity blew me away." -Emily

40% of engagements happen during the holiday season and if you were one of those couples, then attending a wedding show is the perfect way to start meeting the wedding companies that can help orchestrate your special day.  From intimate to extravagant, wedding shows offer inspiration and the chance to meet with potential vendors.  Plus, shows like Weddings in Woodinville, are really, fun!

Here are 10 Reasons Why You'll Love Planning Your Wedding at the Weddings in Woodinville Showcase and Tour:
  1. The format of Weddings in Woodinville wedding showcase
    Weddings in Woodinville was created to be an intimate boutique style wedding tour. All our vendors collaborate to create one cohesive theme look, just like you would experience at a real wedding. Transportation between all 8 venues is provided by Butler Seattle - Valet, Transportation & Tours. Our tour is limited to 700 attendees to ensure you the option to meet and connect with every wedding vendor represented on the tour.   
  2. The tour is fun for everyone
    Your fiance, your Maid-of-Honor, your Bridesmaids, your Groomsmen, your Mother-in-Law, your Father-in-Law, your grandmother... everyone can partake in the food, photo booths, wine, cake, and fun (and those over the age of 21 can enjoy the beer, bubbles and wine tasting! More on this in question #8). Grab the whole squad, this event is interactive and has something for everyone!
  3. What's included in the ticket price
    The cost of the ticket does include samplings from catering & dessert companies, wine and/or beer tasting at each venue, luxury transportation, a custom swag bag & cork notepad, complimentary copies of our media Sponsors Resource Guides and Magazines from Banquetevent.com/Seattle Wedding Resource and Seattle Bride Magazine, in addition to other swag that can be collected throughout the tour from our vendors.     
  4. Tangible, tastable, and touchable experiences
    Settle in for a snuggle on one of the vintage couches. Toast to your future over wine tasting. Take a twirl on the dance floor as the live band or DJ plays "your song". All this and more. Be sure to take photos along the way!  In fact, we'd love it if you joined in on the conversation happening on Instagram, Facebook and other social media outlets by using our hashtag #WiW2017.
  5. Book your perfect vendor during the tour
    When it's right, you just "click" right?! Vendors will have their schedules ready to pencil you in during the tour itself, because when it's meant to be, you don't want to miss out having your vendor-soul mate be already booked by the time you contact them the next week.
  6. Promotional discounts 
    Historically, many of our vendors have offered special Weddings in Woodinville discounts for their services but you'll have to join us day of to find out what promotions this years vendors are offering.   
  7. Your junior bridesmaid, whose not yet 21, can attend the tour
    The show is recommended for adults only, however guests under age 21 are welcome to attend with your party. Ticket holders will be asked for ID at registration and will be issued a wristband before embarking on the tour. Underage guests will be issued a different color wristband and every venue will be checking wrist-bands. Bartenders may also ask for ID at any time so please keep your ID handy while on the tour. We do not offer discounts for underage guests.
  8. Spending the day being chauffeured around in luxury transportation
    Guest parking is very limited and even completely unavailable at some of the venues during the tour. We encourage you to take full advantage of the tour amenities and enjoy the complimentary chauffeured service. If you wish to end the tour at any time, simply let your driver know and they will return you to the registration area where your vehicle is parked.
  9. Weddings in Woodinville does not give out or sell your contact information and email address
    Weddings in Woodinville does not provide any contact information for direct mailings for tour attendees to any vendors. We encourage you to have cards or address labels to give to vendors you'd like to continue wedding planning conversations with.
