Minimal Botanic Garden Wedding

July 20, 2020

If you need inspiration for a minimal botanic garden wedding you are in the right spot.  A garden is a perfect place to get married and most are beautiful as they are. Our bride, Ashley, chose to keep things simple and only accent the natural beauty of the garden’s surroundings. Together they chose fresh floral arrangements, a white blooming bouquet with eucalyptus accents, and eucalyptus at the center of each table. It’s ethereal, dreamy and so so simple. Ashley was a bride who just wanted to bring their loved ones together for a day. They danced, laughed, ate street tacos and just enjoyed each others company. As a couple they decided they didn’t want to take time away from the fun, so we had a very organic, no fuss couple session and candids only for family formals, they just wanted to jump right back into the fun and get dancing.  Did I mention the epic karaoke after-party? Trust me…scroll to the end!

The San Diego Botanic Garden is 37 beautiful acres in the midst of Encinitas.  It is home to plants from all over the world.  Nearly 5,000 different species reside there! Giving the sensation of strolling through a tropical rainforest, to then hiking in the desert. Four miles of trails wind through 29 uniquely themed gardens.  You have multiple options when it comes to choosing the reception, ceremony, and cocktail space. Not to mention the entire grounds can be used for the most incredible bride/groom portraits. The Victorian Gazebo Lawn, The Walled Garden, The Lawn House Garden and The Waterfall View Deck, all ranging in size for different party sizes. Perfect for a medium to a small wedding, or an intimate elopement.
