Love bursts into bloom in Planterra Conservatory’s 11,000-square-foot botanical garden, a fairytale setting for couples to tie the knot or renew their vows. Up to 50 guests file into rows of white chairs, awaiting the moment when the bride sashays or army crawls from a green room across the threshold. Tropical trees cast shade across the venue’s twin koi ponds and trusses, intercepting the sunbeams that spill from the paneled glass ceiling. As the venue-provided officiant proctors declarations of devotion, both bride and groom don flowers arranged by a renowned floral-design team. The climate-controlled space stays cozy year-round, and photographers capture every whispered endearment and tear-glazed smile while guests clink sparkling wine in celebration or check on their fantasy croquet teams on free WiFi.
In addition to arrangements, Planterra supplies an array of prepotted botanicals such as orchids and blooming plants, which staff can ensconce in decorative packaging for guests to take home. Patrons can also fill bags and tuxedo pockets with air plants and decorative moss. Organic fertilizer and self-watering containers facilitate care for floral companions.
