We’ve shot at the Marin Art and Garden Center in North Bay many, many years ago at the beginning of our career and were super excited to come back there again. There are eleven exquisitely landscaped acres to photograph at and the grounds are full of gorgeous courtyards, lawns, cute benches, fountains, roses, and gazebos – the photo opportunities are truly countless!
One of the most surprising parts of their landscaping is the rose garden which is actually surrounded by a tall fence. As it turns out, the fence is there to keep all the neighborhood deer from eating the rose plants they so love.
This wide, landscape portrait is probably my favorite from the day – love the reflection in the fountain and all the fall colors!
Love seeing creative bouquets! Crispy at Natalini Flowers added branches of tangerines and red peppers to these fall-themed bouquets for an extra spicy look:
One of the quite and serene nooks of the Marin Art and Garden Center:
And yet another gorgeous corner of the property :) I’ve heard that they sometimes have ceremonies right there by the fountain area. We’ve never seen one, but I can only imagine how pretty it would look:
How do you like this fall-themed chuppah? And those marigolds on the grass? We were swooning over all the textures and colors and shoot them from every possible angle :)
Walking down the aisle with dad:
This one is my favorite candid of the day: love both the emotions and the berries on the chuppah!
Their ceremony was on the Gazebo Lawn:
And the cocktail hour was at the Garden Room Patio – an expansive garden patio enclosed in ivy covered walls. It has a lava rock fountain in the corner and numerous flowers all around.

We also loved this gorgeous Yael Designs sapphire engagement ring!
