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 7 venues available for a wedding ceremony and reception. Please coordinate your tour with one of our recommended wedding planners. All of our wedding packages include exclusive use of your wedding and reception site from 5:00pm–10:00pm the Saturday of your wedding as well as the exclusive use of your reserved site the Friday evening before your wedding for your rehearsal from 5:00pm–8:00pm. In addition to private use of your reserved site, there will be a Garden Representative on hand during your wedding. You will also receive a Household Membership for one year to the Botanical Gardens. We do require that you engage one of our three approved Wedding Planners in order to book your wedding and reception at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Information is available at
