Meadowlark Botanical Garden Weddings in Summer’s Glory

Meadowlark Botanical Garden Weddings

Kim and Austin’s June wedding was magnificent with all the natural beauty available from NOVA Parks and Meadowlark Botanical Garden. The trees, plants, flowers and gardens were a constant and colorful reminder of summer’s glory. It was the perfect location for wedding photography with an unlimited supply of radiant greenery and the enjoyment on the faces of Kim and Austin. Even the wedding reception at The Atrium offered panoramic views of the landscaped grounds with its three walls of glass and high cathedral ceilings complete with an immense skylight. Kim, Austin and their guests enjoyed the splendor of the outdoors while having fun celebrating, dining and dancing indoors.

Kim and Austin’s response to questions about their wedding day:

  • Wedding theme? “Modern botanical”
  • Most memorable part of your wedding day? “The first look pictures”
  • Favorite wedding detail? “Our favorite part of the wedding was our first dance.”
  • First dance song? “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates
  • Special décor details? “Decor was either supporting the botanical theme or tied into our San Francisco background or showcased our love for our pug, Thor.”
  • Wedding flowers? “White hydrangeas with light pink roses”
  • Wedding cocktail? “Bay Breeze which we named Bay Area Breeze and a Margarita which we named Thor’s Hammer after our dog”
  • Four words that describe your wedding? “Fun, Joyous, Happy and Modern”
  • Honeymoon spot? Maui”
