Fern Acres Wedding // Ashley + Casey


We’re very excited to share Ashley and Casey’s forested Fern Acres wedding photos with you!

Fern Acres is owned by a couple who are residents of the Pacific Northwest. Overall, they have spent over fifteen years cultivating the gardens and natural areas of Fern Acres. Furthermore, this venue is located in Forks, WA, which is on the Olympic Peninsula. In relation to Seattle, Fern Acres is about a four hour drive away from the city. This property is comprised of mossy grounds, tall trees, and hundreds of ferns. 

All things considered, a wedding in a forest is enchanting and magical. Fern Acres is perfect for both elopements and micro weddings. In addition to the beautiful grounds, they offer other amenities with their venue rental. For example, they will include tables, chairs, plus a firepit and wood. Generally speaking, if you want to book this venue, you should contact them directly. 

As can be seen in the photo gallery below, Ashley and Casey had a very cool wedding aesthetic. One example of this was the dark wooden outdoor accent wall, covered with vintage gold frames, and embellished with a neon sign that said “‘Til Death.” Another moody element was the choice of red as an accent color. Some examples of this were the red napkins that sat atop guests’ dinner plates. Also, there were dark red roses mixed into the floral arrangements. 

Firstly, Casey wore a dark suit on their wedding day. His tie, pocket square, and boutonniere were all a deep red, almost plummy, color. Ashley wore a beautifully fitted white wedding gown with a train. Correspondingly, she wore a white veil. Also of note, was their little dog’s outfit. Their dog wore a dapper white bowtie. 

Next up was the ceremony. Ashley and Casey walked down a beautiful natural stone pathway as their aisle. At this point they stood in front of a dark wooden altar. Suspended from their altar was a beautiful and silky fabric in white and pink tones. In front of a handful of very special guests, this couple shared their vows and officially became newlyweds. 

Finally, Ashley and Casey’s reception was under a large white tent. Above the wedding party were chandeliers and string lights. Next up was the happy couple’s first dance together. At the end of their dance, Casey dipped Ashley back for a kiss. 

At last, it was time to cut their special cake. Ashley and Casey’s wedding cake had a naked cake and icing design. Furthermore, the cake was topped with raspberries. The wedding party finished the night off with a champagne toast to the couple. 

Our team at Sound Originals was honored to be a part of Ashley & Casey’s wedding. Please enjoy their photos!
