Gardens of Paradise | Santa Clarita wedding

“There’s nothing that makes you more insane than family. Or more happy. Or more exasperated. Or more… secure.”

Jim Butcher

Bryce and Amanda are one of those super upbeat, love for life couples. Infectious smiles and energy. We had already shot their engagement session at El Matador beach in Malibu.

We knew going in, that their non-traiditional Jordanian wedding at Gardens of Paradise wedding venue was going to be a fun-filled extravaganza. It didn’t disappoint.


Cascading waterfalls, ponds, lush gardens, romantic bridges and whimsical walkways are just some of the features that make Gardens of Paradise truly a unique place for a wedding. The ceremony was held on “paradise Island” which is a modern and creative setting where the altar is set on a small island with guests surrounding on the edge of the manicured lawns across crystal blue ponds. With a capacity up to 300 this is perfect for the unconventional bride.

First was prep at the beautiful family home for the ladies. Then at the secluded private meadow house (at gardens of paradise) for the guys. An intimate first look in the courtyard rose garden. Amanda wedding dress was incredible with a train meant for a princess.

Guests begin to take their seats on the outer edge of the beautiful blue pond. With treats and a string quartet to greet them. Then the bridal party and family enter over the bridge to the paradise island for the wedding ceremony.

Gardens of paradise is not only spectacular, but also convenient, as it has on-site spaces for prep, ceremony and reception. For Amanda and Bryce it was the Grand Marquee ballroom, equipped with; 10,000 Sq. Ft. ballroom, seating for 600 guests, outside catering, bar service and valet, ballroom terrace overlooking ponds and surrounded by lush grassy fields, palm trees and gardens.

After the grand entrance, dancing , speeches and money dance, it was time for some incredible performances by traditional belly dancers followed by – you guessed it – party time!
