Chateau de Harpe
West Linn, Oregon



A Chateau de Harpe Wedding

Chateau de Harpe is the most gorgeous wedding venue nestled in the hills of West Linn, Oregon. It’s a custom-built chateau inspired by French architecture and is truly a one-of-a-kind venue. Haley & Justin leaned into the beauty of this venue and their love of magic & Disney and envisioned the most whimsical, fairy tale wedding. Not to mention, they themselves are the most wonderful humans. Their love is so sweet and tender, and they made sure they found time to celebrate their day together with quiet alone moments AND with the loud crazy joy that their friends and family brought to the day. And they didn’t forget the details either!! Their day was filled with pearls and gold, a princess gown, a dreamy castle backdrop for their vows, and a t-shirt party to end it all off, after which we promptly frolicked off into the sunset (literally) and I don’t know that they could have made it any more unique and true to them!!
