Thornewood Castle Wedding // Yizhou + Xiaoyun


This Thornewood Castle wedding was truly something out of a fairytale.

There are only a few private castle estates in Washington state. Thornewood Castle is one of them. It is located 42 miles South of Seattle on American Lake in Lakewood, WA. It offers both indoor and outdoor venue options with stunning views and architecture. To note, their on-site staff helps navigate your dream wedding day with ease.

The intricate staircase, gallery hallways, and historically elegant dressing rooms were the perfect backdrop for the get-ready photos and the first look. The couple got a horse carriage ride prior to their ceremony. It was a beautiful moment to get on camera – our professional wedding photographer rarely gets to experience such a fairytale! The ceremony was outdoors in the lovely gardens. The statue parapet was the perfect spot for the couple’s vows and first kiss. Next, we took some breathtaking wedding portraits before proceeding to the reception. Can you believe these magical photos our photographer captured of Yizhou and Xianoyun’s love story?
