The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Celebration Garden




Your wedding at The Tiffany & Co Foundation Celebration Garden will be nothing short of spectacular. In 2008, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation awarded Parkways Foundation a $1.25 million grant for the transformation of Grant Park's south rose garden into a formal garden and event space adjacent to Buckingham Fountain. Visitors to the garden, which was designed by Douglas Hoerr, will process down a ceremonial promenade bordered by an abundance of colorful blooms, hanging vines, and shaped evergreens. Imagine saying your “I-do’s” in a wonderful fairyland of blooming trees and shrubs, cascading vines, spring bulbs, and romantic blossoms in white, soft pink, burgundy, purple, and silver. The garden highlights views of the city’s most beloved treasures, including Buckingham Fountain, Lake Michigan, and the stunning view of Museum Campus. Accommodate up to 150 of your guests for both a ceremony and reception in the elegant and airy Garden, or increase capacity by utilizing tenting space directly north of the garden. Either way, your wedding at The Tiffany & Co Foundation Celebration Garden will have the best of both worlds – natural outdoors mixed with unbeatable city views that will make you feel as if you are in an urban fairytale.
