Hey there

When elegance intertwines with personality and youthfulness, the result is a wedding that resonates with timeless charm and modern vivacity. This classic Oakshire Estate wedding in Washington embodied just that, merging black-tie sophistication with playful elements. Picture this: a vintage convertible and bridesmaids in mismatched pink dresses set against the backdrop of a classic brick estate. An overall vibe that effortlessly blended tradition with contemporary flair.

A Proposal to Remember

For Autumn and Nate, their love story has been a journey since adolescence. Inseparable since Junior High, Nate proposed at the Bloedel Reserve and chose the magnificently elegant Oakshire Estate in Washington State as the venue for their nuptials. 

Getting Ready 

The festivities began in the early morning at Oakshire Estate, as the bride and her bridesmaids got ready together. Autumn gifted each of her bridesmaid’s fun pink pajamas and slippers, perfect for the getting-ready photos in the gorgeous bathroom. Barbie pink was a theme of the day, making for a bright and cheery atmosphere and a morning filled with laughter and toasts.

The Bridal Ensemble

Autumn graced her wedding day in a gown that epitomized simplicity and elegance, featuring a playful side slit and complemented by a floor-length veil. Her look was the perfect blend of timeless and contemporary. She surrounded herself with a touch of whimsy, dressing her bridesmaids in a pink color palette but allowing their individual flair to make an appearance through florals and textures. The result was a perfectly mismatched yet coordinated ensemble that added a delightful charm to the wedding party.

Culinary Delights

Food and drink were highlights of the celebration. Guests were greeted by a stunning glass shelf of champagne flutes for a pre-ceremony welcome, a refreshing surprise on a particularly warm day. They then enjoyed an open bar with a quirky sign proclaiming, “Drinks on Hank” — a nod to the couple’s beloved dog. Cocktail hour featured delectable bites like brie and blackberry and bacon-wrapped dates, which were an instant hit. Autumn’s eye for detail was evident in the elegant florals paired with specialty glassware, including crystal candleholders. The white-on-white table numbers, echoing the arched shape of the invitations, added a modern touch to the classic decor, seamlessly blending traditional and contemporary elements. One of the most heartwarming touches of the day, however, was the wedding cake, lovingly made by Autumn’s grandmother. This adorable cutting cake was not just a treat but a cherished family memory in the making.

A Stylish Getaway

Last but very much not the least, Nate and his dad, both vintage car enthusiasts, brought their convertible to the wedding, providing a stylish end to the night. The couple’s grand exit through the Oakshire Estate’s long, tree-lined road was a scene straight out of a classic romance, and the sunset portraits as they drove into the distance captured the magic of the day.

This Oakshire Estate wedding was not just a celebration of love but a beautiful blend of elegance, personal touches, and joyful memories that will be cherished forever.
