Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The Sunken Gardens are breathtaking—you can hold either your ceremony or reception in the vintage-style glass greenhouse, which boasts a Neoclassical water feature and ever-changing displays of seasonal flowers.
  • The Japanese Garden features a tranquil koi pond and traditional ornamental work, while tropical flora and a peaceful waterfall delight guests in the North Garden. Really, there are too many wonderful venue options to list!
  • You can have an "animal ambassador" pop in for a visit with your guests, and some truly memorable photos. Your new pal will be accompanied by an education specialist, who'll answer questions and provide fun facts.
