Description:

For your special day, plan a wedding made by nature. Set your wedding outdoors in one of the formal gardens or spaces, or indoors amid the lush tropical setting of the Conservatory. This venue offers seven distinct spaces in which to host your stunning ceremony or lovely outdoor reception. Say your vows in the summer-blooming Gateway Garden where sunflowers nod overhead and butterflies and hummingbirds dart between flowers in a flurry of activity. You will say, “I do” beneath the arch in the pavilion and guests watch while sitting amid the gorgeous landscaping. The colorful Perennial Garden provides the perfect space for a formal ceremony layout with chairs against the central aisle and the ceremony taking place in the semi circle of white perennials. The changing colors of the perennial beds will always blend and reflect any color scheme for fantastic photographs. Willow Pond Island is a truly special place for the ceremony where you will cross the water and pass between the reeds to a secret garden, creating a sense of serenity and isolation. Views across wildflowers to the tranquil water beyond you and your guests will be surrounded by rugged natural beauty.
