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!

Lauren & Eric at the Darlington House


The Darlington House was the perfect place for Lauren and Eric to say “I do!” They had their ceremony in the Egyptian Patio, followed by cocktail hour in the Andalusian Patio and their reception in the Rose Garden. There were round dining tables in the garden with a long head table, all covered in white linens. Their adorable flower arrangements in mason jars looked great on the white tables with dark fruitwood chairs. Between the flowers, bridesmaid dresses and wood signage, the color scheme of this wedding was so beautiful and matched this venue perfectly!

Ariel & James at La Jolla Woman’s Club

Ariel and James celebrated with their friends and family at the La Jolla Woman’s Club. The ceremony on the lawn was complete with garland hung across the chairs and lavender flower petals placed along the aisle and in the shape of a heart next to the bride and groom. Inside the ballroom, gorgeous flower arrangements and gold votive candles decorated the tables, along with cute cups as favors for the guests. In addition, the market lighting and draping in the ballroom looked absolutely beautiful! 2016-10-05_01362016-10-05_01292016-10-05_00992016-10-05_01472016-10-05_01152016-10-05_01652016-10-05_02012016-10-05_02362016-10-05_01692016-10-05_02022016-10-05_01952016-10-05_02082016-10-05_02172016-10-05_02252016-10-05_02292016-10-05_0220

Kristen & Erik at Darlington House

It was such a beautiful day at the Darlington House for Kristen and Erik’s wedding! Both the bride and groom looked so happy and their guests had such a great time! We loved the bride’s dress and how gorgeous it looked with her bridesmaids in different shades of purple and blue. Their bouquets were beautiful and we loved how amazing the greenery looked on the farm tables in the Rose Garden.

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!
