Oysterville Washington Wedding Photography Historic Coastal Church – Carmmal and Daryl

I was very happy that Carmmal and Daryl chose me to capture their engagement photos and be their wedding photographer. They picked the small historic town of Oysterville Washington for the preparation and ceremony.  The vernacular architecture of the buildings were impressive and set the scene for a beautiful wedding location.

This small town was founded in 1854, and used to be a boomtown, shipping it's vast supply of oysters to California for gold prospectors. Now it is known as the Oysterville Historic District.

The old red and white church is true to form, with no electricity. Yes indeed, with heat coming from a potbelly stove and the lighting is all by oil lamp.

Bridal prep was at the Oysterville Guesthouse, which is a nice coastal house with plenty of aged wood. Lot's of great surfaces for photographing the dress, ring and accompanying bridal pieces.

Space within the church is very tight with no center aisle. The interior finishes are very nice and made for a great setting.

Lot's of beautiful color in the flowers all around, but I don't think the couple were really paying much attention.
