Description:

Sherman Library & Gardens is a botanical wonderland. Here you are surrounded with foliage of all kinds, from the spiny cacti of desert regions to the most exotic flowers of tropical climates. The courtyards, tiled patios, greenhouse, arbor-shaded walks and fountains, and the fern-covered waterfall accented with orchids, create the most picturesque background for a gorgeous garden wedding. A wisteria-covered arbor on the Tea Garden Patio provides a sublime location for ceremonies. Baskets swelling over with fuchsias and impatiens in tones of pastel pink and white hang overhead. The adjacent Pepper Tree Patio shaded by a large and delicate-leafed pepper tree, is a lovely spot for serving beverages and hors d'oeuvres after the ceremony! For indoor receptions, Sherman Gardens offers the Central Patio Room, a vintage space reminiscent of old California architecture, with a cathedral ceiling, gray wood beams, and skylights. A large white-brick fireplace and terracotta tiled floors create a warm and cozy atmosphere. On a warm evening, French doors that line the perimeter of the room can be opened to allow the party to overflow onto the covered terrace. It's not surprising that Sherman Gardens has become a sought-after location for weddings—who wouldn't be impressed with this little piece of paradise?
