    Beautiful Location

    Fairchild is a wonderful place for an outdoor wedding. Our wedding planner worked with Fairchild鈥檚 event coordinator and everything ran smoothly. This is the best place for a garden wedding in South Florida because it has various scenic locations for gorgeous photos.

    Fairchild Garden is the Dream Backdrop for Your Special Day

    The photos, video, and memories shared were made all the more magical by being at the beautiful tropical botanic garden! We had an outdoor wedding ceremony in the Bailey Palm Glade, and then an indoor reception at their McQuillan Arts Center. Our guests were treated to a tram ride through the garden as we took our photos after the ceremony. The cocktail hour was in a gorgeous outdoor courtyard in front of the Arts Center. Everything was spot on spectacular and it wouldn't have been possible without the amazing team at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Book this location - you'll be hard pressed to find a more beautiful venue with a top-notch professional team in South Florida!
