Wanted: True Romantics to wed in fragrant garden paradise. Must love the sounds of flowing water and birdsong. Desire for unique celebration with family and friends a definite plus!
Equal parts enchanted forest and tropical oasis with a large helping of event-friendly amenities, Eden Gardens is two acres of “wow” from your first step inside the private gates. An arched entryway beckons you deep into fairyland. Lush, meandering paths canopied in greenery yield surprises at every turn: a waterfall that feeds a running brook…vintage birdcages aglow with luminarias…urns brimming with blooms…a covey of wedding-white peacocks. Down one walkway, you’ll find yourself among a series of fantastical aviaries alive with sound and color. Vivid parrots engage in friendly chatter (Arturo se habla espanol!), while lovebirds and rosy-cheeked cockatiels trill a sweet serenade. A clearing serves as a pre-event welcome station, where guests quaff lemonade amid the fluttering of doves’ wings. And you haven’t even arrived at the Ceremonial Garden yet!
A series of twinkle-lit archways entwined with blush-pink Eden roses leads to a breathtaking vision: a picturesque pond dotted with blooming lily pads and fountain sprays. Spread along the bank, a pair of manicured lawns flanks a spacious stage which is elevated to allow views of the bridal couple from every angle. Behind them, an uplit waterfall cascades around a classical statue; in front of them, the sunset’s reflection turns the pond into a scintillating waterscape. “Dreamy” doesn’t begin to describe this storybook setting.
The myriad of photogenic backdrops lures the wedding party away during the social hour, but guests won’t mind—they’re busy exploring the several pondside terraces set with cocktail tables. As evening descends, your gathering moves on to the open-air Amphitheater, a swathe of grass with a low, colorfully lit waterfall along the perimeter. Overhead, market lights merge with the starscape for maximum magic. A raised demilune stage that looks as if it was made of alabaster is perfect for showcasing the sweetheart table and wedding cake or your entertainment.
Down a nearby path, the lofty whitewashed Pavilion, adorned with flower baskets, has the feel of an open-sided barn. A dollhouse porch off to one side is a fun spot to serve late-night snacks or the wedding cake.
With so many delights competing for your attention, it’s easy to overlook Eden Gardens’ practical enhancements. For example, an abundance of specialty lighting accentuates the nighttime glamour of each fountain and event area, and many of the tree trunks are wrapped with twinkle lights. Your choice of music fills the air, thanks to a sound system discreetly wired throughout the grounds.
