A Romantic Three Day Wedding Celebration At NatureBridge Olympic On The Shore Of Lake Crescent

Lainey Dow

Cassie and Ryan's wedding weekend at NatureBridge Olympic was nothing short of breathtaking. The couple hosted 60 of their closest friends and family members for a welcome rehearsal dinner that featured delicious chacuterie boards crafted by the bride. A chic tablescape under the trees showcased pretty place settings and textured greenery, giving the design a perfectly Pacific Northwest feel.

Another 100 guests joined Cassie and Ryan for their big day the following morning. The bride stunned in a gorgeous lace gown with a deep neckline and stunning train from Olvi's Lace, while Ryan looked sharp in an all-black ensemble from Ben Sherman. Sweet Annie Floral Design crafted incredible bouquets full of blush, burgundy and cream-hued blooms that added a beautiful pop of color to the autumn day. Cassie and Ryan recited their vows during a sweet ceremony overlooking the glimmering water of Lake Crescent.

Guests made their way inside the Rosemary Inn for the wedding reception, where warm decor paired with lovely greenery set the scene for the evening. The grooms's mother baked 45 pies for the occasion, and guests were invited to drinks from local breweries.

"In lieu of a first dance, I convinced Rye we should do a duet. He picked guitar and we both sang. He’s a musician and spends most nights on Seattle’s small stages: The Tractor, The Hard Rock and The Little Red Hen. We actually found each other again (after meeting a decade earlier) at a show at the Tractor. A duet suited us," says Cassie.
