The Gardens at Heather Farm

East Bay



Every couple has a unique vision for their special day. From rustic chic to vintage country to modern garden glam, The Gardens at Heather Farm's beautiful and versatile facility blends perfectly with a variety of themes and decor, and offers plenty of room for personal touches. A selection of easy-to-work-with indoor and outdoor spaces gives the wedding day a natural flow and provides comfortable accommodations for you and your guests. The stunning Cowden Rose Garden features thousands of brightly-colored roses, continuously blooming from spring through fall and filling the air with fragrance. It's a choice spot for unforgettably romantic photos. Equally as romantic is the rose-covered Gazebo, with its unique slate-tile roof, serving as the perfect place to say "I do" before your guests. With a spectacular panoramic view of the gardens and nearby lake, our Meadow Lawn is bordered by Rugosa roses, Camellia trees, pine trees and low shrubs and makes a lovely alternative location for ceremonies. After the ceremony, let your guests mingle during cocktail hour at the Patio and Pavilion, with granite-topped outdoor bar and informal bench seating along side our sensory garden filled with hundreds of vibrantly-colored Dahlias in summer months. Elegant receptions are held in the Camellia Room, a light and airy reception hall, complete with large windows, high, beamed ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors perfect for dancing. The space also features a bridal dressing room, a caterer's warming kitchen, and a wrap-around deck so your guests can enjoy the fresh air and garden views throughout the evening. Experienced staff will work with you throughout the planning process to help ensure a successful and memorable wedding event.
