Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden Overview

Your guests will feel as if they have discovered a secret garden oasis while watching you say your vows in Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden. This unique 2-acre property features the lavish details of a traditional Japanese garden. Winding paths lead to an authentic Japanese teahouse, overlooking a serene pond canopied by sycamore and oak trees. Originally built in 1937 as part of private estate, this historical jewel of Pasadena has retained the ambiance of secluded serenity needed for an intimate wedding. The property offers a beautiful house where the bride can prepare for her big day in Zen-like tranquility. Multiple staging areas are located throughout the property to facilitate creative uses and allow for breathtaking photos against the lush backgrounds. This serene spot can easily transition into a dynamic event space where guests celebrate into the night on the dance floor beneath the oak trees. As you walk down the aisle made from a Japanese bridge surrounded by granite statuary, you will see how nature and tradition have been brought together to create a truly memorable experience for your wedding day.
