A Stunning wedding on Vashon Island at Froggsong Gardens


Oh my goodness – what beautiful people and what a beautiful venue!  Every little corner of Froggsong gardens on Vashon Island is meticulously landscaped and is bursting with beautiful flowers and greenery!  It was an absolute pleasure to shoot here.  Erika and Tom are honestly some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of working with. They have such an amazing amazing ability to make everybody around them feel so loved and important!  Their happiness is absolutely infectious.

Tom and Erika met at Teach for America and there were a few nods to this throughout the day including having their guests make their own ‘snack packs’ as favors and at the end of the evening a school bus arrived to transport all the guests to the hotel and ferry dock. The dance party was a blast with really great music and incredible energy!

Here are some of my personal highlights from the day:

  • Tom and Erika’s happiness was absolutely infectious and made the day really special.  What wonderful people they are and I am SO happy for them!
  • The appetizer bar was incredible!  BJ at ‘Herban Feast’ produced a great spread with salads, grilled figs, and tons of different toppings to go onto his toasted to order rustic bread.
  • I love it when people make wedding traditions their own. Tom and Erika’s twists on the bouquet and garter toss where great. The bouquet toss was not restricted to the single ladies. All genders were included and encouraged. The garter toss transformed into a t-shirt sling shot, again for all genders. That was a first for me and was a huge crowd pleaser. It reminded me of when I first came to the USA and went to my first Sonics game. So fun!!
