Fox Farm wedding on Vashon Island: Kate + Jordan

February 26, 2010

We have another super sweet (and very budget friendly) wedding for yous this Friday. First a bit about Kate and Jordan’s story. They met when they were both members of local bands. Kate’s band was organizing music festival and she asked Jordan if his band might wanted to take part. He said yes, and the rest is pretty much summed up in the photos below. Isn’t that so cute?


Their whole day is filled with a light-hearted whimsy (and games!) that reflects their personalities perfectly. They knew they wanted their wedding to be sweet, playful, and eco-friendly. They chose a lavender farm on Vashon Island a small fleck in the ocean near Seattle and accessible only by ferry… which is where Jordan grew up. They knew when they saw the farm that it would be perfect, and help them stay within their $8,000 budget since the 700 lavender plants provided loads of charming decor on their own.


The flowers came from the farmer’s market, Kate collected vintage linens from thrift stores, and friends and family rallied in the kitchen to bake blueberry pies. Plus they bought a 100 year old pipe organ on Craigslist for their ceremony music. The couple they bought it from had been married 43 years and played the same organ at their wedding. Love.

Sno-Kone stand with organic pomegranate, grapefruit, and ginger ale flavors? We’ll take all three, please.


Then comes the games, which make every event, especially a wedding, soooo much fun! They’re pretty self explanatory but, um bouncy house? We haven’t seen that one yet. Genius.

And they rode off on Ruby Scoot, their red scooter decorated by friends. Congratulations you two! Thanks so much for sharing your super fun, personal day with us.
