Secret Garden by Wedgewood Weddings
Friday, October 8th, 2021
If you’re planning a romantic garden wedding, this blog post is for you! After two postponements due to Covid, Stephanie and Mike were finally able to make their grand entrance as Mr. and Mrs. in October 2021. Stephanie and Mike tied the knot at the Secret Garden in Phoenix, Arizona on a beautiful fall day.
Mike proposed at the Hershey Gardens, located in Pennsylvania, where his family is from. He had an entire photoshoot set up for them because he wanted to make sure every moment was captured on camera! Stephanie was so surprised and had no idea it was coming.
Mike’s reaction to Stephanie during their first look was a long time coming and one of the sweetest reactions we’ve ever seen! Stephanie also made a grand entrance walking down the beautiful staircase into the ceremony.
Being an Arizona native, Stephanie knew she wanted to bring her friends and soon to be family from Pennsylvania to come enjoy the desert for their wedding, but still kept that lush green flair they both love. This made the Secret Garden the perfect venue for them to get married at.
This couple had their ceremony, cocktail and reception outside to enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather. The reception was elegant, with themes of gold and white, but saturated with heavy elements of pink and green flowers, creating a classic garden atmosphere.
We organized a beer burro for their wedding, a donkey that carries beer throughout the party, which brought great panache and animal fun to their cocktail hour and fit perfectly into their garden wedding.
