I love garden weddings – and often this means beautiful summer celebrations, weddings in pergolas or walled gardens filled with flowers and petal confetti. But perhaps even more special are autumn garden weddings. Emily & Adrian had an outdoor wedding at the New York Botanical Garden – and decided to fully embrace autumn. For their stunning botanical garden wedding they chose a chuppah made from autumn leaves, placed under huge trees and with a woodland backdrop full of autumn colour. Emily’s bouquet picked up on these colours with gorgeous orange tones and autumn leaves alongside cream roses and blue thistles. Their simple Jewish wedding ceremony ended with the groom smashing the glass and guests throwing confetti as the couple walked down the aisle. 

The New York Botanical Garden was established in 1981 and is a National Historic Landmark site with both indoor and outdoor options for botanical garden weddings. The garden includes a historic Victorian glasshouse, a waterfall, wetland area and over 50 acres of forest so there is plenty to choose from! This gorgeous woodland backdrop is next to the Garden Terrace Room which Emily & Adrian used for their evening reception.
