Sarah and Jan
A Garden Party Wedding
Venue: The New York Botanical Gardens
Photographer: Gabelli Studio
When you think about gorgeous wedding venues, it’s no surprise that garden locations make the final cut. The New York Botanical Gardens is one of the most beautiful places to host a garden party wedding. Filled with countless varieties of trees and flowers, the grounds alone help you get the best wedding pictures imaginable.
Our NYC couple, Sarah and Jan, were originally looking to get married at the bride’s parents’ home. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, all would be held outdoors, ending under a beautiful white tent.
With time working against us, and a preferred wedding date during the height of the season, we decided to look into formal wedding venues. But Sarah and Jan weren’t the ballroom type, and really loved the thought of including the outdoors on their wedding day.
After plenty of venue research, it was clear that The NYBG was the perfect backdrop for their whimsical wedding theme. The wedding day began with prep at The Pierre Hotel, followed by breathtaking first look photos in Central Park.
The couple traveled with their parents and wedding party to the venue where the ceremony took place outside surrounded by lush trees. A white and green wedding color palette complimented the already beautiful venue design, and guests danced the night away inside just as thunderstorms began to roll in!
