Were your spring nuptials a ’rona casualty? Has life in lockdown with your S.O. strangely warmed you up to the idea of forever together? There’s still hope for your dream wedding this season.
Fairchild Botanic Tropical Garden, one of Miami’s most popular attractions and event venues, just launched a virtual wedding package they’re calling Garden of Love. Unlike the Zoom ceremonies we’ve grown used to seeing these days, this is a full-blown affair with a backdrop you won’t have to download off of Google images.
For $1,400, couples get their choice of location within the gardens, including the vibrant Chihuly sculpture area surrounded by a pond of Koi fish and the signature Sunken Garden complete with a waterfall to really turn up the romance. Plus, a videographer (wearing a mask and gloves, of course) to document the nuptials and livestream them to friends and family watching at home. Each will also receive a flute of prosecco to toast to their new life together. Hopefully, one not spent in lockdown.
A-la-carte upgrades are also available like a boutonniere for the groom for $12, a wedding cake for $125 or the option to be serenaded—from a distance—by a single musician for $250. Weddings can be scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7am to 9am or Monday through Sunday from 4:30pm to 7pm.
While this kind of ceremony may not satisfy your wish for something more traditional, you can always walk down the aisle a second time.
