The Empress Estate – Fabulous wedding-location


The dreamlike castle „The Empress Estate” is situated a couple miles north of Portland, Oregon, and got recently re-opend as one-of-a-kind wedding location after years of restoration. Formerly an imperial palace it offers countless options for unforgettable weddings nowadays.

With a lot of love for details and her incomparable sense for aesthetics and class the fantastic photographer Nikita Lee organized this vintage styled shoot and caught every little detail on such graceful and expressive pictures.

The bride wearing a vintage-dress designed by Vera Wang fitted perfectly into the historical-dreamy estate and the spotless white vintage-limousine decorated with adorable flower arrangements was an absolute highlight, too.

The lovingly decorated table with playful china and antique silver plate picked up the colors old rose, creme, green and pink that we already found within the bridal bouquet and the wedding cake in a wonderful way.
Even the stationery including the elegant calligraphy fitted amazingly into Nikitas decoration concept.

Pompous upholstery, a costly piano and the palace´s charming facade as well as the royal chambers and the spacious neat garden offer the perfect conditions for fairy tale weddings and shootings like this.

Nikita Lee bewitched us with a masterpiece of her photography and lets us now dive into a world somewhere between majestic brilliance and modern glamour.
