Why We Like This Place

• If you’ve always longed for an extravagant garden wedding, then this venue is a floral fantasy come to life.  Say “I do” among 83 beautiful acres of lush foliage, punctuated by gorgeous water features, a coral rock grotto and staircases surrounding a lovely lily ponds.

• They allow you to bring in your own chosen team of vendors, including caterers, florists and decorators.

• When you have your wedding here, you also give something back to nature: You can feel good knowing that your rental fee helps support this nonprofit’s mission of promoting the conservation, use, study, understanding, and enjoyment of tropical plants.
