The Olmstead Suite at Oheka Castle (also sometimes called by Oheka the Bride's Suite, though many a groom has gotten ready there as well!) is one of my favorite rooms in this stately estate. I have photographed many wedding clients getting ready there over the years, and it remains one of the best places I've seen to get ready for a wedding celebration.
It's really hard to my finger on what makes this suite so exceptional. Perhaps is the incredible light that flows through the double doors in the main room from sun up to sundown. Perhaps it's the abundance of space for you to get ready surrounded by your nearest and dearest family and friends. Perhaps it's the amazing attendant that Oheka provides to help make your time in their venue all the more exceptional.
I think it's mostly the entire atmosphere of the suite that I am so drawn to. The light and the space and the decor all come together to create a cozy (yet extremely elegant) environment to get ready on your wedding day.
Here are some of my favorite images from the Oheka Castle Olmstead Suite that I have taken over the past ten years of photographing weddings at this spectacular venue!
