Dana and Chris at the San Diego Botanic Garden

We had so much fun celebrating with Dana and Chris at the San Diego Botanic Garden! They had a beautiful ceremony in the walled garden, cocktail hour in the herb garden and reception on the gazebo lawn. The dining tables were covered in white linens with slate blue napkins hanging off the tables. The couple chose colorful tile magnets as cute favors for their guests. This wedding was complete with a fun photo booth, corn hole and delicious mini desserts in the lawn house.

Here are a few photos that DJ Mike Hogan took! Photos by Meurer Image Photography to come soon!

Nate & Kim at San Diego Botanic Garden

Here’s another beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden wedding! Kim and Nate chose tons of little details that matched this venue perfectly. We love the succulent boutonnieres, bouquets and centerpieces, along with the gorgeous purple flowers on their wedding arch. They used rustic wood signage by the ceremony and welcome table, and covered the dining tables with jute runners and gold chargers.

San Diego Botanic Garden Venue Spotlight

This week we’re featuring the San Diego Botanic Garden as one of our favorite wedding venues! This  venue is so gorgeous and has so many different locations on site, which gives couples a ton of different options for their wedding. The walled garden is the perfect ceremony site. Couples can choose to have their cocktail hour in the herb garden, lawn house garden, or the gazebo lawn. Then the reception continues with dinner and dancing on the gazebo lawn!
We love the gazebo where couples can put their dessert station, guestbook table, or even a photo booth. See below for some highlights from this stunning venue!

Alex & Joel at San Diego Botanic Gardens

Alex and Joel thought of absolutely everything for their wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden! Blush, ivory and sage were perfect wedding colors for this venue and the Gazebo Lawn was complete with white chiavari chairs and pretty market lighting. They chose a baby bellini and apple ginger sparkler as their signature drinks, which were a huge hit.

Ashley and Jordan at San Diego Botanic Garden

We’re so happy we could spend the day with Ashley and Jordan at the San Diego Botanic Garden! The day started off with a beautiful ceremony in the Walled Garden, followed by cocktail hour in the Lawn House and the reception on the Gazebo Lawn. The bride and groom sat with the bridal party at a head table, which was adorned with garland and pretty signage. A chandelier hung above the bride and groom’s seats and market lighting was displayed across the lawn. They incorporated the floral theme of the venue by giving their guests flower seeds as wedding favors.

Not only was this a gorgeous wedding, but it was also full of fun and creative ideas. Instead of a traditional guestbook, guests wrote notes to the bride and groom on jenga pieces. The couple also prepared a special wedding coloring book with crayons and set them at each place setting on the kids table. Along with a two tiered wedding cake, there was a delicious assortment of gourmet desserts for the bride and groom to share with their guests!
