Maple Lawn Estate




Nestled amid the picturesque vegetation between Boyd Memorial Park and Marin Academy in San Rafael, Maple Lawn Estate is a stunning venue steeped in classic design. The spacious and elegant bridal suite is decorated in calming tones with antique-inspired furnishings. Magnolia Terrace, our outdoor garden, is the jewel of Maple Lawn and the perfect site for a ceremony and reception under the California sun. The garden is surrounded by blooming Magnolia trees from May through July. Lights are strung around the perimeter and above the brick aisle. An archway at the end of this path will beautifully frame the bride and groom as they say their vows. Down the center of the lawn stand two gorgeous, multi-tiered fountains cradled by plush grass and tall trees. A canopy-covered patio and outdoor bar can host a DJ or live band for dancing and recreation.
