Being surrounded by nature is on the of the best backdrops for any wedding, especially in the Pacific Northwest. From a well manicured lawn with a log stage and pavilion for your ceremony, to a greenhouse surrounded by lush greens for your reception and topping it off with a dock and pond for epic bridal portraits, it was a no brainer for Niza and Arvin to have their wedding at Black Diamond Gardens Wedding & Events.​ And I was so excited to be their Seattle Wedding Photographer.

Just 45 minutes outside of Seattle and 30 minutes from Tacoma, getting married in the middle of nature is so easy to get to. Located in Black Diamond, the lush gardens and beautiful surroundings will create the perfect environment for your big day. On top of such a beautiful location, Black Diamond Gardens comes with so many amenities, a few are listed below:

  • Friday – Sunday events are 12 hours (Fri/Sat 11am-11pm / Sun 10am – 10pm)
  • One hour scheduled rehearsal on a Thursday.
  • The use of the venue for a two-hour engagement session.
  • 160 space self-parking vehicle capacity.
  • Indoor reception greenhouse which seats 260 guests.
  • Outdoor main lawn and flower gardens with an amphitheater stage
  • Full services men and women’s restrooms
  • Two hours with their on-site wedding planner to outline your floor plan, timeline, and to cover venue details.
  • The option to choose your own vendors: caterer, bartender, etc.

Black Diamond Gardens is the perfect Seattle Wedding Venue

The details of Niza and Arvin’s wedding were so romantic in every way. Arvin’s dapper maroon tux paired great with Niza’s gorgeous, lace BHLDN gown. The groomsmen wore a neutral tan suit, while the beautiful bridesmaids were maroon colored gowns. The florals that were from Wild Posies (@emily.wildposies) completed the look.

Their ceremony took place at the venue’s log stage and pavilion which was so beautiful and filled with so much cultural traditions! After the ceremony the wedding party and their guests made their way to the greenhouse, which was decorated with long tables wooden tables and gorgeous greenery. In the end, they danced the night away with their closes family and friends and I was so honored to be there to capture it all!

I stumbled upon Vikki on Instagram and her portfolio was what drew me in. From the beginning, communication was breeze. The many emails that we exchanged felt like she was a friend I’d already known. When the day came for our wedding shoot, there was no awkwardness, she was helpful in directing us how to stand and pose, and as an added bonus, she was the best hype woman ever!

I was referred to Vikki by a friend and I am SO glad I was!! We booked her for our wedding and after looking at her portfolio and chatting with her, I knew we made the right choice! Vikki is so friendly and fun to work with and she made our awkward nerves instantly go away. I can't wait for our wedding photos and would 1000% refer her to anyone looking to have a great photos taken and have a blast while taking them! Book her now!

Vikki captured moments at our wedding reception. I don't even know where to start with my experience with her! I absolutely loved every moment working with her. My husband and I can't thank her enough for working with us. She made the moments enjoyable and truly captured real moments. She is amazing, fun, and patient! Her work is amazing. I would highly recommend her!

Vikki worked her magic and our photos turned out AMAZING. They are better than we could have ever imagined. She is so fun and comfortable to work with, which is something extremely important to getting natural, beautiful photos!! All in all, such a fun person to work with, a memorable experience, and truly beautiful photos. Cannot recommend her enough.

After going through the process of researching, I quickly realized that it's so so important to choose someone you connect with. From the get go, we were both so glad that we found Vikki. When we received our gallery we were speechless. We also sent our gallery to family/friends and told us that they were speechless & cried while doing so. How do you rate perfection? 5 stars isn't enough. Bride (and Grooms), if you are looking for a photographer, you WILL NOT regret hiring Vikki.

We've never had a photoshoot before and we are so awkward. But somehow Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable with each other in front of the camera. She really tries to get to know you as a couple and reflect it through her photos. The pictures turned out amazing, and we knew we had to book her for our big day! We got so many compliments from our friends and family on our engagement photos. Can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!
