Katherine and Graeme’s herb and nature-inspired wedding at Kingston House, WA

On a beautiful and sunny September day, Katherine and Graeme celebrated their wedding at Kingston House, just a short ferry ride from Edmonds, WA (or Bainbridge Island)

Katherine studies naturopathy and Graeme environmental science so their green theme was a reflection of their professions and what they care about. The sweet hues of purple and green to the choice of herbs for their dinner decor as well as the custom-made gown by Katherine’s mom’s friend made for a truly unique wedding.

About the venue

Kingston House is a 15-acre, park-like north Kitsap County wedding venue, vacation rental and lavender farm. Located just 5 minutes from the Edmonds-Kingston ferry and 13 miles from Bainbridge Island, Kingston House is a destination venue that’s conveniently close to Seattle and Tacoma. It’s also family-run by the Sohn family, who purchased the Knapp Estate in 2003. Initially marketed as the Retreat at Sycamore Hill, the 15-acre property was recast as “Kingston House” in 2013. You can read more of the history of Kingston House here.

Thanks to our wonderful vendor friends for making Katherine and Graeme’s wedding a beautiful success!
