Walnut Creek Wedding Venue

Natural. Beautiful. Versatile. The Gardens at Heather Farm spreads out over six landscaped acres full of colorful flowerbeds, herb and rock gardens and water features, and offers a variety of distinctive indoor and outdoor event spaces. Not surprisingly, it's one of the East Bay's most sought-after venues for weddings, parties, meetings, seminars, and other special occasions.
For a truly romantic ceremony, exchange vows at the Gazebo, designed with a unique, slate-tile roof and enhanced by climbing roses. The setting here is absolutely picture-perfect: The adjacent garden blooms continuously from spring through fall with thousands of vibrant roses that perfume the air, and the neighboring lake and fountains sparkle in the background.
Another option for saying "I do"—as well as hosting an al fresco reception, cocktail hour or luncheon—is the Meadow Lawn. This open, grass area is surrounded by Rugosa roses, pine trees and low shrubs and affords a lovely panoramic vista of the entire garden.
Cocktail hours and small receptions also take place at the Patio & Pavilion, a large terraced area bordered by a raised garden brimming with flowers and herbaceous plants. Custom-made for enjoying the outdoors, it comes with a caterer-friendly bar and granite-topped counter for serving appetizers and drinks, and a patio that accommodates table seating or dancing.
Indoor receptions are held in the bright and airy Camellia Room, featuring a beamed ceiling, hardwood floors (ideal for dancing) and large windows that bathe the room in natural light. You can personalize the space with decorative lights, draperies, lanterns or flowers … or simply appreciate the gorgeous garden views. There's an adjacent bridal dressing room, plus a spacious wraparound deck that lets guests soak up the scenery and can also be used for food & beverage service.
These lush gardens will stimulate all your senses, and when you have your event here you get the added bonus of supporting a nonprofit public garden and nature education center.
