Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens




Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is an expansive 47-acre property offering the ideal setting for the perfect wedding. Whether your desire is exchanging your vows under a beautiful wooden gazebo, at an elegant affair in the Dahlia Garden, dancing under the stars on the Event Lawn, or saying “I do” on a Bluff overlooking the blue Pacific, our Gardens can be where all your wedding dreams come true. We encourage you to tour the Gardens and discover the 8 venues available for a wedding ceremony and reception. Please coordinate your tour with one of our recommended wedding planners. July, August, and September are the Gardens busiest months due to our mild coastal weather and the gorgeous blooms in the Gardens. However, the Mendocino Coast can have beautiful weather year-round and there is always something in bloom somewhere in this beautiful setting. In fact, Martha Stewart Weddings recently featured Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in a gallery of their favorite botanical garden wedding venues! Please make sure you check out our unique Festival of Lights Winter Wonderland Wedding Package as well as our standard wedding packages. To ensure that you and your guests have the best possible experience, we have found it useful to have you work with an event coordinator. This is a requirement for having a wedding ceremony or reception at the Gardens.
