Rustic Washington State Park Wedding: Kristen + Reid

Rustic Washington State Park Wedding: Kristen + Reid


With a gorgeous backdrop of the Puget Sound and dense forest views as far as the eye could see, Fort Flagler State Park (on Marrowstone Island in Washington) was the perfect spot for Oregon dwellers, Kristen + Reid, to exchange their vows. In addition to the location being amazing, there were loads of personal touches and unique ideas that made their day extra-special. Reid grew up on the grounds at Fort Flagler, where his father was a park ranger, so the location had a ton of meaning. His mother's catering company ( Rachel Jensen) prepared the delicious cuisine. And Kristen + Reid chose to stand right next to each other during the ceremony rather than across from one another. It was pretty sweet...wait 'til you see! Below, they tell us even more about how they made their day about the two of them:

As the son of a Washington State Park Ranger, Reid spent most of his childhood living right on the Puget Sound with the historic Fort Flagler State Park as his backyard. Since most of Kristen's family was traveling from the East Coast, we could not think of a better way to celebrate our wedding than by spending the weekend doing all of our favorite activities together with our loved ones in the park: hiking, sailing, crabbing, kayaking, and a morning of yoga on the bluff. We wanted to create a fun and relaxing retreat for our guests at this place we hold so dear, with an awesome party and some delicious Pacific Northwest seafood to start off our marriage.

Thanks so much to Catie Coyle Photography for the gorgeous photos + congrats to the newlyweds on a beautiful day!

Kristen wore a gorgeous Leanne Marshall wedding dress, paired with neutral heels by Dolce Vita.

We love K + R's fun ceremony exit!

The wildflower-inspired florals by Carmen Tracer were a perfect fit for the rustic surroundings.
