The beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, CA is another gorgeous outdoor venue that I recently visited. Here's a peek at their event spaces and gardens, but you'll definitely want to check it out in person!
The Walled Garden is an intimate ceremony location surrounded by tall, luscious trees. You'll enter the ceremony space from the historic Larabee House. This space can comfortably seat 180 guests and the white chairs are included in the rental of the venue. You can dress this space up with flowers or just let the natural beauty of the garden speak for itself.
During cocktail hour, your guests can wander the garden trails and admire the different plants and flowers. Your photos will look amazing against any backdrop here and you can choose from over twenty different themed gardens! There are 4,000 species and varieties of plants along their garden trails, so there are flowers blooming all year round. The Waterfall View Deck is another unique place to take photos.
Isn't this bamboo forest just begging for a photo op? The San Diego Botanic Garden offers a picturesque natural backdrop at every turn!
You can set up the reception on the Gazebo Lawn. With market lights strung above the tables and twinkle lights in the trees and gazebo, the evening will be magical. Take advantage of San Diego's beautiful year-round weather and enjoy an outdoor reception under the stars, eating, drinking, and dancing the night away.
