You couldn’t ask for a lovelier setting than the Gardens for an outdoor wedding. We also rent our our Butler Room inside the Visitor Center for receptions or the possible rainy day. The most popular wedding sites at the Gardens include our gazebo (located in the Sunshine Meadow on the edge of Glenn Creek) and in the meadow in front of the Hayes Cabin, in the back of the Gardens.
Outdoor wedding costs range from $400-$600 depending upon season and time of day.
