Why We Like This Place

  • The Japanese Tea House next to a tranquil pond is a picturesque spot for a shady summertime wedding, while the Fragrance Garden, dotted with scented flowers, is idyllic for a garden ceremony.
  • The glass-topped Conservatory is a wonderful place to enjoy the gardens—without being exposed to the elements! And even the Auditorium has breathtaking views of the azalea gardens, pond and Overlook.
  • For a unique outdoor option, consider reserving the Overlook, a 40-foot-long tentable balcony that extends out over the Aquatic Garden and can be used for a formal al fresco reception or food trucks!
