This Magical Forest Wedding at Gold Mountain Golf Club was Filled with Moody Elegance
Haley and Andrew’s forest wedding at Gold Mountain Golf Club was as whimsical and as naturally elegant as could be! Their moody color palette was a combination of forest-inspired hues with pops of maroon for a hint of color that added elegance without overwhelming the natural feel. For her bridal look, Haley channeled forest fairy vibes with a delicate lace gown and handmade gold leaf crown created by Crown Me and carried that same vibe into the bridesmaids’ style with crushed velvet dresses. Kylie Morgan Photography nailed it in capturing every moment of this dreamy forest wedding, including one of the best “first looks” we’ve ever seen!

Gold Mountain Golf Club, Bremerton, Washington
The most important thing to us was keeping it true to who we are! We had tacos, so much dancing, and lots of laughter. We wanted it to feel like a big dinner party with all of our closest friends, and we feel like we achieved that by planning it around our values!
The prank I planning on the day of the wedding was meant to lighten the mood and keep Andrew laughing throughout the day. I pretended I wanted to do a first look with him, and instead had his best friend dress up in a wedding gown. The photos are priceless!
Andrew and I wrote our own vows, and we had our wedding party pray over us. I had my mom walk me down the aisle as well, and that was so special to me. I loved doing things that weren’t coming to really make the wedding feel true to who we are. So many moments felt so unique and special to who we were, and I loved every minute of it!
Our first dance in the forest was the most memorable part of the day! We decided to have our first dance private, and it was the most special moment. We didn’t have to worry about anyone watching, and we got to have a beautiful moment just the two of us in the woods where our ceremony was. It felt like a dream.
We wanted the forest to be the main inspiration for the vibe, and we chose things from there that just added to it. I love dark, moody colors so we added pops of maroon and we love how it all tied together!
Just remember, at the end of the day, your wedding day truly is about doing the things that mean a lot to you. There were a lot of opinions we had to politely decline because this wedding should make you feel so special. And it’s okay to do things out of the ordinary!
