Japanese Friendship Garden Balboa Park, Museum of Natural History Wedding
The Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park is a very special place for weddings. Where else will you be able to exchange your wedding vows while overlooking a koi pond. This couple had me do their wedding formal portraits at the Japanese Friendship Garden and around Balboa Park a couple of days prior to their wedding, this way we were able to save time on the actual wedding day and go directly form the wedding ceremony to the Museum of Natural History in Balboa Park. Once in the museum, they held the cocktail hour in the main foyer under the bones of dinosaurs, followed by the dinner and dancing on the roof. This is for sure an amazing place to hold a reception. The Museum of Natural History in Balboa Park has a full rooftop area that can fit a live band and a couple hundred of your closest friends while you eat, visit with friends, and dance under the stars. As a San Diego wedding photographer I always look forward to weddings at the Japanese Friendship Garden and the Museum of Natural History. The other thing about shooting wedding photos at night is that I get to be creative and make light effects in camera which the couple really liked once they saw the photos.
