Roger’s Gardens in Orange County has been a fixture in making local family memories for generations. This seven-acre Corona Del Mar nursery (which is the single busiest nursery in the Western United States) has become a coveted destination for holiday decorating inspiration during the Christmas, Halloween or Easter seasons, showcasing live indoor arrangements in its Garden rooms, or touring the 5, 000-square-foot gallery for must-have collectibles, patio furniture and pottery. LOCALE offered the talented team at Roger’s Gardens a challenge: use the unique products that are only available at Roger’s Gardens to design a fantasy rehearsal dinner setting. Anything is possible when you team up with professionals with decades of experience in designing enchanting landscapes.
