Few places in Southern California offer the beauty of Hartley Botanica for weddings. This charming and perfectly appointed garden setting boasts endless greenery, lush trees, running water, a perfect ceremony area and a lovely reception area for guests to dine under the stars. This wedding venue needs only minimal decor to shine, as its stunning greenery is decor all its own. We adore photographing weddings at the tranquil, beautiful and special Hartley Botanica location. Fun bonus: There is an orange grove just across the street, and I'm told that as long as you don't pick any fruit, photographers can take their couples there for a few bridal portraits.Garden Wedding (3), Hartley Botanica (3), Wedding Photographer (6).
