A Message from Jason & Sarah Hope, Wedding Officiants 1/22/2017
We are launching Weekday Weddings at Desert Botanical Gardens starting 2017. We have been creating memories at our Cave Creek Chapel since 2015.
What to know about getting married at the Desert Botanical Gardens:
We are a husband & wife team. Either one of us may perform the wedding. We are also able to perform the ceremony in Spanish upon request. We offer trailside weddings, at certain locations within the gardens that are available for Elopement Style Weddings. Due to the nature of elopement style weddings and restrictions at DBG, we are not able to tell you exactly where you will be married, except that it is in the Gardens. The nature of the elopements is that we do not require reservations, and therefore, will perform the ceremony at one of our preferred locations within the gardens.
Please note that the gardens during this time is open to visitor's, and that this is not a private ceremony setting. You may have curious observers and some may take pictures. If you want to book a closed off area for a ceremony at the DBG, it starts at $1000.00 and goes up from there.
We can not meet you prior to the ceremony to tour the Gardens, this requires an entrance fee, and due to the nature of the elopement at the Gardens, if we pick a spot, it may not be available once we arrive. We are happy to discuss details about the ceremony anytime, just call us.
The ceremony (the vow exchange) takes anywhere between 5-10 minutes. The validating of the marriage certificate, along with your witnesses, an additional 5 minutes. The balance of the time is spent taking pictures with your photographer.
