Garden Intimate Wedding in Sebastian FL

at Rock City Garden


Married in the Garden

If you’re an avid plant lover, what better way to share vows amongst family and friends than at a plant nursery and garden center? Jenny + Ravi did just that! Rock City Gardens in Sebastian, Florida is not just an amazing place to curb your plant obsession – it’s also an amazingly beautiful event space!

It absolutely warms my heart to see couples following their hearts and indulging on their dream elopements even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. It makes planning a wedding so much more stressful – trust me, I am in the middle of planning my own wedding, too! Even though their wedding guest list was small, it was no less special. One of the things I love that they incorporated into their wedding was a live stream for their out of state family members who couldn’t travel down because of COVID. Even more reason why couples can still have amazing elopements and keep their closest relatives involved.

We spent TONS of time getting lots of bride and groom portraits – which you already know as a wedding photographer, I am all about! Take a look and see how absolutely adorable and in love these two are. Congratulations, guys!
