You couldn’t ask for a lovelier setting than the Gardens for an outdoor wedding.  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, towards the back of the Gardens. 

We are scheduling small, simple wedding ceremonies with the following limitations:

  • 30 person maximum for all weddings, this includes the wedding party, officiant, photographer, etc.
  • Ceremony only weddings, no receptions.
  • No use of indoor spaces for weddings.
  • No tent or chair rentals.
  • Restroom access for weddings is only available during Visitor Center Hours which vary by season.

Outdoor wedding costs range from $150-$250 depending upon the number of people. 

If you have questions, would like more information, or to make a wedding reservation, please contact Kaita Collier at (828) 252-5190 or
