Sunken Gardens Wedding {Hilary and Brighton Married}

I'm so excited to blog this wedding sneak peek of Hilary and Brighton's Sunken Gardens Wedding!  The flowers...the colors... its all right up my alley! If you haven't heard of Sunken Gardens, its a botanical paradise in St. Petersburg, Florida. What a lovely place for a wedding! I'll stop talking and let the photos speak for themselves!

I mean can the backdrop be more beautiful? That morning it was threatening rain, but held off till we were headed into the reception for perfect timing! We enjoyed the storm from inside the comfort of the reception.

Didn't I tell you the surroundings were gorgeous? I can't think of a more perfect venue for a garden wedding in the Central Florida area.

The rain started coming down just as the party got started.

Hilary and Brighton love to travel, so they incorporated the travel theme into their photo booth!

Because their last name is Gardiner, the entire reception was full of "garden" puns! So clever!
