We were so delighted to be asked to photograph Suzy and Scott’s Miami Beach Botanical Garden wedding. When Suzy and Scott first reached out to us about their Miami wedding, they shared that the reason they were attracted to Organic Moments Photography is how we capture candid moments that seemed important to the bride and groom. Knowing this heading into their wedding, we were so excited to be a part of their special day. We love capturing love, and were so happy to be their Miami Beach Botanical Garden wedding photographer!
Miami Beach Botanical Garden Wedding Photography
We have to say, we love weddings at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. It’s a beautiful, earthy, romantic venue with the nicest staff. Seriously, they are just the greatest. The manager literally walked around handing out hot oatmeal raisin cookies to the bridal party and vendors. It was such a wonderful backdrop for Suzy and Scott’s wedding day.
Suzy and Scott come from very diverse families. Jewish, Hispanic, British and more! Those differences made this wedding so unique to photograph! Friends and loved ones came from all over the world to share in the joy of their wedding day. Suzy’s mom’s side of the family travelled all the way from the UK and her mom came all the way from Nicaragua!

The day began as the bride and groom got ready. Then they shared a sweet first look at the Botanical Garden. We loved the sheer joy on their faces when they first saw each other. It was so sweet to see these two connect. Their love is just easy to capture, they connect so effortlessly.
A Unique and Beautiful Outdoor Ceremony
The wedding was beautiful. There was a chance of rain, so the Bride and Groom arranged for a clear tent. That way, they were still able to show off the gorgeous trees and landscape of the Botanical Gardens during their ceremony. And, aside from the gorgeous outdoor views, we were so impressed with the thoughtful and personal way Suzy and Scott approached their wedding ceremony. Not only had they written their own vows, but Scott’s uncle officiated the ceremony.
They really embraced a spiritual vibe for the ceremony from the processional all the way through to the breaking of the glass. In keeping with their diverse backgrounds, there were so many special parts of the ceremony that were so unique. From Jewish elements like the chuppah and signing of the ketubah to the special Native American smudging ceremony, every moment was steeped in emotion. It was so clear they had taken a lot of time and care to plan a very special ceremony. And really, any time a bride and groom write their own vows, you know there won’t be a dry eye in sight! It was such an honor to document these special moments.
Wedding Reception at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens
The special and unique personal touches for this wedding didn’t stop at the ceremony! We loved being able to photograph the personal details that infused all aspects of this Miami Beach Botanical Gardens wedding. There were special favors, an amazing dessert table, and beautiful florals adorning each table. It was important for us to focus on capturing moments all throughout the reception. I love being able to look back though these photographs and see the joy that was shared all throughout this Miami Beach Botanical Garden wedding. Every moment was filled with pure, genuine emotion.
Suzy and Scott, we wish you many more years of wedded bliss. Thank you for trusting Organic Moments Photography with documenting your beautiful wedding day at the Botanical Gardens. It was such a true pleasure to be a part of your day.
