Being a Seattle Wedding Photographer who also travels around Washington, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph some beautiful weddings in the area. Recently I captured Jackie and Rolando’s intimate wedding and of course it was nothing short of being beautiful!

I was so excited to be their Rock Creek Gardens Wedding Photographer!

With the current conditions of 2020 causing many couples to reschedule or postpone their wedding celebrations, Jackie and Rolando decided to push back their formal celebration to 2021 but their original date was so special to them that they wanted to still celebrate becoming Mr. and Mrs. on that day. They decided to invite their closest family and friends to attend their intimate ceremony to celebrate their love with them.

Awarded one of the top garden wedding venues in Washington, Rock Creek Gardens is the perfect outdoor wedding venue, especially if you are considering having an intimate ceremony or elopement. Sat on 20 acres, the private estate is surrounded by cedar trees, waterfalls, and peaks of Mt. Rainier, offering a romantic and elegant setting . 

I love knowing the history behind the venues my couples have chosen, and Rock Creek was no exception. The Wedding Party House on the property was originally built in 1958 (upgraded during a recent renovation) and home to the Morell family for over 20 years. In 2005 after their four kids had flown the nest, the decision to sell the property came into the picture. The eldest daughter decided to instead turn the property into a place where couples could create a lasting memory together, just as her family had done growing up. They hosted their first wedding in 2008 and have been creating one-of-a-kind experiences ever since!

Their ceremony space can accommodate up to 300 guests (pre Covid of course!) and has pathways throughout the property making it easily accessible for guests that may have trouble traveling on uneven terrain. They do have onsite parking as well making it easy for guests who are just traveling a short distance. 

Rock Creek Gardens is only 30 minutes or less away from Tacoma and 40 minutes away from Seattle. For guests traveling from out-of-town, there are hotel accommodations nearby that also offer transportation services.

Looking into venues that offer packages for your wedding day will give you peace of mind while planning your wedding and can save you some money in the process! If you have postponed your 2020 wedding and are on the hunt for a venue, or are currently planning your wedding for 2021 and beyond, Rock Creek offers great wedding packages including a set number of hours on-site with exclusive use of the venue, use of their Garden ceremony location, ceremony chairs, and a sparkler exit (one of my favorite exits to photograph!)

From a huge wedding celebration to an intimate wedding ceremony, I highly recommend having a Rock Creek Garden Wedding!

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!

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 is so friendly and fun to work with...

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!

My husband and I can't thank her enough...

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.

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!

Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable...

Alexis & Jeffrey



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.
