Shinzen Friendship Garden

Central Valley



The beautiful Shinzen Japanese Friendship Garden was designed to present an atmosphere of elegant simplicity and quiet beauty. Featuring man-made mountains, waterfalls, streams, and a lake, a wedding in the Garden will capture the peaceful yet lush beauty of the surroundings. Choose to hold your ceremony in spring, summer, fall, or winter—the regional quadrants of the garden. Whatever your pick, the Garden is designed as a “stroll” garden, allowing your guests to roam, and become enamored by its scenic features. With a variety of blooming plant life—including Japanese cherry blossoms—the venue itself finishes the decorating for you! The arched Double-Moon stone bridge resting over the koi pond is just one of the many perfect picture-perfect sites you will find. An oasis of distinctive beauty, a wedding at Shinzen Japanese Garden is bound to be truly unique.
