A Thornewood Castle fairytale wedding

If you want a fairytale wedding day, you absolutely have to spend it in a castle!

The Thornewood Castle garden is one of the most breathtaking places for wedding ceremonies and the luxurious halls just were created for dinner and candlelight dancing. 

Yuwei and Zhongsbo chose their wedding date very timely. Hydrangea bushes start blooming wildly in August. It creates an amazing natural scenery for the wedding.

Marble sculptures and a fountain which located in the middle of the garden became the wonderful additions to a decor and floristry from Awaiting the name Floral. 

Red color flew in a careful manner through the whole wedding palette.

 Elements of the traditional wedding Chinese red lightly met the delicate shades of cream, white and dusty pink. 


The bride went through the wedding isle hand by hand with her mom and this moment stole everyone’s heart, made all eyes wet... The couple changed their vows and gave red roses to their mothers traditionally.

Soft light gradually went down through the trees creating some kind of magical atmosphere during the ceremony. 

What a wonderful atmosphere of endless joy and love it was! The sincere laugh, tears of happiness...classic music and sparkles of candles...Magic! 

The dinner was highlighted with a stunning cake from Lady Grey Seattle, which turned out not only a piece of art, but the art of taste as well. 

And the top of the night - a fairytale first dance and sparkler exit for newlyweds!



It was an honor and a great pleasure to photograph such a culturally rich and sincere celebration.

This wedding became a truly highlight of my photography career in US during first two years.
