Centrally located in Jacksonville, The Museum and Gardens offer a unique backdrop for your wedding day. Known for seamlessly intertwining form and function, this singular venue is tastefully designed with contemporary style in mind. Envision you and your beloved exchanging your vows on a lush green lawn, the mature trees in the garden providing shade as you share your first kiss as spouses surrounded by flourishing greenery and flowers. This lovely backdrop also creates an idyllic setting for breathtaking wedding photos! The Lobby -- an intimate, monochromatic gallery space -- is also a top choice for indoor ceremonies. The Galleries is one of the most expansive spaces offered at this venue. With its beautiful white walls, unique artwork, and designer lighting, this space is ideal for cocktail-style affairs or simply having a pre-function drink. The Waterfall Room is perfect for holding a sit-down reception thanks to its generous floor plan, stately columns, and romantic lounge-like atmosphere. Searching for an even more artistic space? Look to the Black and White Room, which is defined by the stark contrast of its white walls and black ceiling. In each space, ample floor-to-ceiling windows can welcome the natural light indoors if you choose.
