Description:

Sanborn Park’s 3,500 acres of Redwood Forests, meandering streams and chaparrals serve as the backdrop to the 35-acre campus of the Walden West Science Center. This enchanting, woodsy environment provides the perfect setting for your Saratoga wedding. Have your guests witness you exchange vows amongst the redwoods at Walden West’s rustic ceremony site. After the ceremony guests can enjoy a cocktail in one of several choice locations. The culmination of your wedding celebration is a reception in the center’s cozy reception hall. Two large display screens feature a photo slideshow detailing your history as a couple. The reception hall also features large windows, exposed ducts and an indoor amphitheater. You and your guests will enjoy a delightful menu, prepared by either of their two preferred vendors, that will tailor your menu to your specifications. The on-site wedding coordinator will work closely with you to ensure that every detail of your special day is in order from start to finish.
