Kelsey and Mitchell’s San Francisco Botanical Garden Elopement Photos

Here is a photographer curated collection of photos from Kelsey and Mitchell’s San Francisco Botanical Garden elopement.  This beautiful setting was perfect for Kelsey Mitchell’s and their handful of guests. Contrary to popular beliefs, elopements do NOT have to be in secret. Kelsey and Mitchell shared their ceremony with those closest to them. The ceremony was intimate and meaningful, full of bright sunshine and the lush greenery of the San Francisco Botanical Garden.

Kelsey and Mitchell’s Botanical Garden Elopement

The best thing about an elopement is the couples’ chance to have their wedding day be all about them. We were able to get lots of amazing shots of the couple before and after their botanical garden elopement ceremony. The day had that perfect relaxed, low key feel that makes small weddings and elopements so special!

Kelsey and Mitchell’s Elopement Ceremony

Kelsey and Mitchell’s San Francisco Botanical Garden elopement ceremony was absolutely enchanting. The sun was shining, the garden was verdant, and the vows were touching. We’ve seen a lot of small, intimate wedding this past year due to the pandemic, but we’ve also seen more relaxed couples, meaningful vows, and aura’s of love at these small but poignant gatherings.

“Listen closely,
even the trees exhale
their own sweet love songs
that roll off their boughs
and echo out into all of creation.
Love is always in the air.”

-Cristen Rodgers

A Love Poem For The Happy Couple:

“I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be.
I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals, I pray for your desires that they may be great, rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little.
A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall. The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desire are working for a larger and finer growth. Not always shall you be what you are now. You are going forward toward something great. I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.”
