Description:

The secret is out! You have found the perfect garden venue! The Gardens at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek combines the rustic beauty of nature with the comfort and flexibility of a modern event center. Host your ceremony in the garden at the vine-covered Gazebo, enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the outdoor garden patio, and then head inside for dining and dancing in a bright, spacious reception room.

 

The centerpiece of a six-acre property, the stunning Cowden Rose Garden features thousands of brightly-colored flowers continuously blooming from spring through fall and filling the air with fragrance. It's a choice spot for unforgettably romantic photos. The perfect backdrop for wedding ceremonies is the Gazebo, with climbing vines and unique slate-tile roof -- no additional decor needed!

 

With a spectacular panoramic view of the gardens and nearby lake, the Meadow Lawn is bordered by flowering trees and shrubs and makes a lovely location for group photos and small 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-style 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.

 

Venue rentals include tables and chairs (some restrictions apply), a complimentary hour in the garden for an engagement photo shoot, free guest parking, and more.

 

In addition to being an award-winning Bay Area wedding venue, The Gardens at Heather Farm is also a nonprofit public garden and education center helping to spread community-wide appreciation for our natural world, and your wedding fees help support this mission.
