Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • One of Southern California’s most iconic and beloved landmarks, this stunning estate—home to the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens—is a true treasure, with a Beaux Arts mansion, vintage and contemporary buildings, and over 100 acres of beautifully curated gardens.
  • Venues include architecturally intriguing spaces, artfully lit terraces, and breathtaking botanical landscapes. Our favorites include the dreamy hillside Rose Garden, and Liu Fang Yuan, the Huntington’s unforgettable Chinese garden complex, which boasts a tranquil lake and traditional tea house.
  • Your event helps preserve a legacy. Proceeds from rental fees go directly back into the Huntington’s endowment, so that its mission to ensure access to its priceless collection of art, flora, and the written word endures for generations to come.
