Ethereal Gardens is nestled in the back of Escondido in San Diego County. When you think stunning garden wedding venues in San Diego, Ethereal Gardens venue is the place to have your wedding. Ethereal gardens offers a variety of ceremony locations such as a garden, lawn or even a rustic barn. I hadn’t shot an Ethereal Gardens wedding since 2019 so I was so excited to be back this year for Marissa and Zach’s early fall wedding at Ethereal Gardens.
I shot Marissa and Zach’s City chic engagement session in SF last summer when they still lived up there. They met in the city so it only made sense for their engagement session to be there. They had their wedding at Ethereal Gardens down in San Diego. Their wedding day started out with getting ready photos at Ethereal gardens. If you know the Trademark venues you know they go all out with their getting ready spaces. It’s a photographers DREAM to shoot getting ready photos in their bridal salons and groom suite.
We then went straight into their sweet first look together and Zach had one of the best reactions I’ve ever seen. I mean Marissa was a stunner so I think we were all just standing there with our jaws on the floor. Check out their cuteness below.
They had their beautiful ceremony under the stunning greenery of the garden ceremony site with all their close family and friends. They ended their Ethereal Gardens wedding with some golden hour portraits, touching speeches and fun party under the big reception tent.
Marissa and Zach’s Ethereal gardens venue wedding will always be a highlight of 2022!
