    SDBG Employee Lesley Randall looks over the damaged caused by two rare and historic Torrey Pines downed by high winds at San Diego Botanic Garden.

    A popular wedding spot in San Diego was destroyed when two historic trees fell in a powerful El Nino-fueled storm Sunday.

    High winds toppled two trees in the San Diego Botanic Garden. One crashed into the Waterfall Deck, a popular place for couples to marry at the garden. A second tree fell in the rainforest area of the garden.

    The trees were Torrey Pines planted by the original owners, the Larabees.

    A spokesperson for the garden said that any weddings scheduled for the Waterfall Deck will take place in another venue on the property.

    Hamilton Children’s Garden was not damaged. All other areas of the garden remain open.
