grounds of the Botanical Gardens at Asheville and the Visitor Center are
available for rental for special occasions.
Gardens provide a lovely setting for an outdoor wedding with an indoor
facility for receptions or the possible rainy day. The Gazebo located on the Sunshine Meadow on the
edge of Reed Creek or the meadow in front of the Hayes Cabin,
an authentic log cabin nestled in a cove, are perfect
locations for a memorable day. Outdoor weddings are affordably priced from
$300-$500 depending upon season and time of day.
