Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park

South Bay



If you’ve been dreaming of a beautiful garden wedding, away from the busy city and away from the secluded desert, then Gilroy Gardens is for you. Immerse yourself in a serene setting, complete with gorgeous, seasonal flora and tranquil creeks and waterfalls. Choose from one of three enchanting locations within the park. In Claudia’s Garden, your guests will be seated on a wooden deck as you exchange vows on a bridal platform across the water. Above the platform is a pristine flowing waterfall. After the ceremony host your reception in the unique setting of the Events Plaza. The Events Plaza is located in the middle of the park and allows you to revel as royalty for the day. The Creekside Terrace is a lush green area with the tranquil sound of a flowing creek meandering through the site. This site can easily be transformed from ceremony site to reception area. For the ceremony, guests will be seated on the shaded patio as you say your I Dos overlooking a grand floral display. You and your guests will enjoy the fine architecture and the majestic gardens. Gilroy Gardens is your venue for a California garden wedding.
