This Marshall House wedding, on Officer’s Row by Fort Vancouver, was a great way to kick off my Summer wedding season! The couple and their families started the day by getting ready at the Marshall House. Afterward, we headed to the Proto-Cathedral of St. James the Greater in downtown Vancouver for the wedding ceremony. Then, it was back to Marshall House for the reception and festivities!
Marshall House Wedding
Marshall House is located on Officer’s Row by Fort Vancouver. The Historic Trust owns the property. They have quite a few historic properties in the area that can be rented for private events, like a wedding or reception. This was my first time photographing an event here, and it was perfect for this micro-wedding. The couple had about 20 people in attendance. The house is a Queen Anne mansion and is named in honor of General George C Marshall, who lived there from 1936 to 1938. He served as Commander of the Barracks and the regional Civilian Conservation Corps.
This cute couple used the house as their getting-ready location. It is just a short drive from the house to the cathedral. They tied the knot at the Proto-Cathedral of St. James the Greater, which is also a gorgeous venue. Everyone drove back to the Marshall House after the ceremony, for the reception.
All The Details
The couple chose green and white as their color palette. They love nature, and Washington (the evergreen state), and white is the bride’s favorite color. Clark County Floral did a beautiful job with the white and green centerpieces and bridal bouquet. Lots of green hydrangeas and white roses. The bride wore a green ribbon around her dress. And, they had a green and white custom-made quilt. It was signed by friends and family that were not able to attend, as well as by the guests.
