Wedding Rental

Whether an intimate rehearsal dinner, an elegant ceremony or a ceremony followed by a catered reception, the Garden stands alone in being a breathtakingly one-of-a-kind wedding site. A bridged lake, waterfall, winding pathways, exquisite pavilions and lush flora provide a stunning stage for sharing your romantic moment-in-time with friends and family.

Your guests will savor the view across Lake Zither as you exchange your wedding vows in the Garden’s Moon Locking Pavilion--a gazebo located in the heart of the Garden.

A site perfect for both a ceremony and reception, your caterer can begin the evening with tray passed appetizers as your guests stroll the pathways with a glass of wine.  Later, your event moves to a buffet dinner staged in the Scholar’s Courtyard and ends with dancing the night away, on the main terrace. The Garden offers an enchanting and elegant evening that will create a lifetime memories.

Caring and knowledgeable Garden event staff are experienced in supporting brides, grooms and their families in producing a memorable celebration of any size or scope. Garden staff will help you envision your event, guide you through the details and be on-site during your event.
