Gardens are the prettiest wedding inspo

Sarika and Josh's wedding day started off with a Jewish ceremony in the morning, officiated by the groom's brother and sister. A floral-adorned arbor from Amy Burke Designs was the perfect backdrop for this ceremony in the gardens! After the ceremony, guests moved to the luncheon reception that took place under a pergola covered in greenery. The tables were decorated with sprawling florals, taking inspiration from the garden setting of Bernardus Lodge.
