The Venue

The Huntsville Botanical Garden & Nichols Arbor Courtyard Garden:

"This beautiful courtyard, adjacent to the Nichols Arbor, is an intimate, tucked-away space. A chandelier hangs in the pergola, and lush planting beds surround this quaint garden. Together with the Arbor, it creates an indoor-outdoor venue that can accommodate up to 160 guests"

Why I love this venue:

*Stunning photo opportunities

*Guest Convenience is excellent

*Get ready space is great

*Amazing storage & rental options

*Catering kitchen is fantastic

*Very Child Friendly

& so much more!

The Ceremony

Jessica & Danny chose a beautiful outdoor ceremony, beneath a garden arbor adorned with twinkle lights and a lavish chandelier. The garden's natural splendor was so beautiful as 75 guests joined in watching these two profess their love to one another.

Along with beautifully written vows, the ceremony included a heart felt reading and a fun spin on the traditional flower girl with a flower man doing a special dance as he distributed his petals (see photos below). The sweetest detail though, had to be the couple's children being pulled down the aisle in a covered wagon! So very precious!

My Favorites

This was not only a beautiful wedding, but a really fun one! The venue was gorgeous, the decor was so perfectly themed, the taco bar was delicious, and the FLOWER MAN was amazing!

Often you will hear that it's very difficult to have a child friendly wedding while also achieving a romantic vibe, but I'm here to tell you that this couple nailed it! This particular spot was so great for families, because parents could enjoy the reception knowing that their children were just a few feet away, playing in the private garden at this amazing venue. I highly recommend this venue not only for the glamour, but for the convenience in every way.

Thank you kali melson photography for these photos!
