Moorten Botanical Garden Wedding Photos

Moorten Botanical Garden Wedding

I have photographed weddings at Ace Hotel, Airbnbs, private elopements in the Palm Springs desert and even captured destination weddings at the top of the Palms Springs tram. All of the locations were freaking awesome, but the people were even better. The point I am trying to make is that Palm Springs has a ton of unique spots for any bride and groom who want a dreamy desert wedding. And what spot is one of my personal favorites? A unique botanical garden called Moorten Family Botanical Garden. In this blog post, I am going to share some of Noelle and Darryl’s Moorten Botanical Garden wedding photos so grab yourself a cold one because it is go time!

Meet Noelle from Laguna Beach and Darryl from the UK (England for you 8th-grade flunkies). Remember Braveheart’s bad guys? They’re nicer now. Darryl, studying aquatic animal psychology, observed dolphins for hours at the beach. There, he met Noelle, playing volleyball with Canadian dudes. To impress her, Darryl joined the match Top Gun-style. Aces won her heart, leaving the hockey-talking dudes in the dust. Time passed, and now they’re engaged. They married at Moorten Botanical Garden after prepping at Ace Hotel. Check their Palm Springs wedding photos below.

Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium Pricing

One of my favorite outdoor Palm Springs wedding venues is Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium. Honestly, I recommend Moorten Botanical Garden to all my couples whether it is for intimate weddings or engagement photos. The first reason why I recommend Moorten Botanical is the price. Moorten Botanical Garden prices start at $1,000 and go up to an affordable $1,800 for 3 hours and 100 guests maximum limit. Oh and if the bride and groom want to stay a little longer each additional hour is only $500! Another reason I love weddings at Moorten Botanical Garden is because of the greenhouse which is seriously one of the most iconic locations for Palm Springs photoshoots. The Moorten Botanical Garden greenhouse is a very unique place that allows any photographer to get creative, and that is something every wedding creative enjoys!

Wedding At Moorten’s Botanical Gardens: My Favorite Moment

This Palm Springs wedding at Moorten’s Botanical Gardens was very intimate and therefore I really enjoyed the entire relaxed feel of the day. We never felt rushed, had plenty of time to move from location-to-location and generally had an awesome time from start to finish. I really wish more brides and grooms would take a relaxed approach and go with a smaller wedding. The vibe is totally different and it makes for so many more authentic moments.
