Love is not a fairytale in the conventional sense: it’s imperfect and frightfully real but, contrary to what many believe, its humanness is exactly where its majesty lies. The storied nature of love doesn’t come from dashing princes or daring sword fights, it’s magic is borne of fierce togetherness. We write our own fairytales — and they’re imperfect, but beautifully so.
In today’s feature, Jake & Lauren took the meaning of “storybook” to a new level with their gorgeous wedding day! Nestled in the stunning Oregonian landscape, the Ashland Springs Estate‘s whimsical architecture and teeming grounds played venue to this elegant affair! The golden sunlight kissed its every surface and provided a tender glow matched only by that which radiated from our happy pair!
A word from photographer, Betsy Tomasello, of Betsy Blue Photography:
“Coming from New York to the Pacific Northwest just recently, Jake & Lauren wanted to merge their classy, elegant, timeless black/white/gold style with a picture-perfect view of their beautiful new PNW home. Their ceremony was held at the incredibly unique, extraordinarily beautiful private chateau, Ashland Springs Estate. With stunning mountain views, a storybook feel, ponds and lovingly manicured grounds, the chateau was a perfect merging of their unique style, and each impeccably dressed guest was thrilled to celebrate amidst the breathtaking scenery. Jake & Lauren’s friends and family came from near and far to witness the couple’s union…and what a gorgeous celebration it was!”
