Petaluma Wedding Venue
498 Pepper Road
Petaluma, California 94952
If you’re a rose lover, or a gardening or horticulture buff, this eight-acre ranch, located three miles north of Petaluma, is the perfect location for an outdoor celebration. It’s one of the few wedding sites where you can hold both your ceremony and reception amongst thousands of rose bushes—some 8,000 to be exact. The roses are cultivated for the sale of their blooms, and there’s also a one-acre garden where fragrant plants are grown for potpourri blends.
Several Victorian-style structures, a large lawn and adjacent gardens are available for large functions. Tents, canopies and tables with umbrellas can be set up on lush lawns, creating a comfortable environment for the ultimate garden wedding. Garden Valley Ranch is available for tours Wednesday through Sunday from 10am-4pm and you don’t need an appointment to view the grounds.
CEREMONY CAPACITY: The Victorian Belvedere area holds 150 seated or standing.
EVENT/RECEPTION CAPACITY: The facility accommodates up to 150 guests for outdoor functions.
50% of the event total is required to reserve your date. The balance is due 30 days prior to the event. Rental fees range $2,000–5,500 depending on day, time and size of the event.
