Sunken Gardens Elopement for Ana + Natan | Intimate Weddings St. Pete

June 5, 2023

Ana and Natan’s breathtaking elopement took place at Sunken Gardens in St. Pete⁠ in early March, when the weather is a dream! The North Lawn was the perfect setting for them and 35 of their closest family and friends. Their intimate celebration was filled with pure joy and many cherished moments.⁠

One of our favorite moments of the day? Their “first touch”, when they took a few moments before their intimate ceremony to share their vows with one another (while back-to-back)… it was a beautiful moment of connection before Ana walked down the aisle (and we just adore Natan’s reaction!).

The gardens are truly magical for portraits- we’re often surprised and delighted by the vibrant floral hues and gorgeous textures. Foliage in every shade of green makes for a unique backdrop around every corner! And Ana’s tropical-inspired bouquet was a stunner too!

We also love how they incorporated personal details (yes, this is 100% possible even with an elopement!). The monogrammed cake topped and delicate wine glasses etched with “I do” and “I do too” are the sweetest! They added an extra touch of fun and romance, don’t you think?! ⁠
