Venue Spotlight: San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers
We couldn’t think of a more iconic venue to host a wedding in San Francisco than the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park! The Conservatory of Flowers is a national, state and local landmark, officially “Landmark Number 841” in the State of California. Built in 1879, the Conservatory of Flowers was the first formal structure erected in Golden Gate Park and remains an icon at the entrance of world renowned Golden Gate Park (info taken via the Conservatory’s website). Let us do the math for you- this building is 140 years old! The conservatory hosts five distinct galleries, each focusing on highlighting a different ecosystem, ranging from a tropical rainforest to the cloud forests perched on top of mountains. Our personal favorites are the carnivorous plants as well as the Corpse Flower. It truly is a magical place to exchange vows among the symphony of exotic plants and historical scenery!
Check out these breathtaking photos from Julie Pepin Photography of Katie and Kyle’s flawless wedding there last year. You can also view the full gallery here. We’re so honored to have been a part of this!
Currently, we do not have the name of the florist or event designer for this event (which is a shame, because these florals are INSANE!!). If this information becomes available we will edit this post immediately! Also, Julie Pepin is a fantastic photographer and captured this day perfectly!
