Yesterday I took a trip down the hill and into Orting to meet Briana, the new owner of Orting Manor. If you know me at all you KNOW I’m a total lover of all things vintage, and that includes houses! I’ve always wanted a victorian manor… there is such a charm to these beautiful homes.
I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the manor was when I pulled up. Set at the end of Washington Ave South in the quaint city of Orting, Wa, this stunning victorian home is the most delightful gem to find. It was previously a much darker color that more blended into the trees and shade. Now that it is this magnificent white with black trim it really pops and commands your attention!
**Side note, if you have never been to Orting in general you MUST make a trip to this lovely little city. The views of Mt. Rainier on a clear day from parts of the city are breathtaking! The Mountain isn’t visible from the manor but you can get a great view from just a few blocks over!**
Back to this amazing wedding venue! Briana and her husband Laremy bought the manor in December and have been lovingly restoring her to her former glory. A photo of the house from back when it was first built in 1901 awaits to greet you right as you walk into the manor. The attention to detail throughout is simply amazing. You can really see the care and thought that they have put into every area of the home.
They have filled the manor with a mix of period pieces and added touches of glam. The darker, more masculine sitting parlor features two cozy chairs next to the painted white brick fireplace and is the perfect spot for relaxing after the rehearsal dinner. The Hollywood style bridal suite is one that will make you swoon. It’s the perfect setting to get ready to walk down the isle. Boasting a cozy couch and chair that are perfect for relaxing while everyone is getting their make-up and hair done. There is also a very large formal dinner room, a lounge area and a updated kitchen for use!
If you book the entire weekend at the manor you are able to stay in the house and have use of the upstairs! There are 4 bedrooms that sleep roughly 10 people. The master suite is in the back of the house and would make even Joanna Gaines jealous! It is beautifully decorated and has it’s own private bathroom. The french doors lead out to your very own private balcony that overlooks the Manor’s grounds.
Off of the kitchen you step out into a well manicured and lush landscape. The Groom’s cottage is located off to the left along with the venues additional restroom building. To the right is a beautiful water fountain and a nice shaded sitting area. A pool and hot tub are also available to you and the perfect way to wind down after a busy day of wedding prep. The wedding ceremony space is set in the perfect spot to marry your best friend. With plenty of room for seating and lots of shade from the afternoon sun it’s picture perfect!
