Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Over 155 acres of amazing flora present a bounty of options. The Fountain Garden, one of the most popular sites, features lush plantings, a vine-covered trellis, a large pavilion, and cascading water for a soothing ambiance.
  • The Garden Pavilion & Terrace is magnificently landscaped. Its classic white tent, with seating for 500 plus an adjoining terrace, makes it ideal as a stand-alone venue or when used in conjunction with Fountain Garden ceremonies.
  • Combining indoor elegance and garden party charm, a Gallery Reception provides a unique dining and dancing experience both inside the Visitor's Center and outdoors on the patio overlooking the Contemporary Wildflower Garden.
