Brownstone Gardens

East Bay




Located just outside downtown Oakley in Contra Costa County, Brownstone Gardens is an elegant venue with a unique outdoor garden setting that exudes a rarefied ambiance. With hundreds of new plants being added each year, the colors surrounding you will take your breath away. Welcome breezes rustle the foliage overhead as your guests stroll down a shaded path towards the Koi Garden, where they can mingle before and after the ceremony. There, guests can enjoy a gazebo, Koi pond with a waterfall, beautiful shade trees, and even an old-fashioned wood swing in the corner. A 12-foot waterfall with Angel's Trumpet Vines spreading their wings across is truly romantic and will be the perfect spot for those amazing magazine pictures. The dance floor is sunken below the guests’ tables so no one will miss a thing. The twinkling lights above you and your guests add that extra hint of romance. Brownstone Gardens completely shields you and your guests from the outside world by a profusion of mulberry and sycamore trees, variegated shrubbery, lilies and a fragrant, multicolored rose garden. This is the perfect venue for any dreamy occasion.
