If you are interested in booking a wedding or an event at the Gardens, we highly recommend taking a complimentary private tour first. Simply choose a day and time that works best for you here.

From there, let our experienced staff assist in planning your event -- from tents, tables, and chairs -- to lighting. If our rental partner does not offer what you are looking for, we can recommend many local companies to complete your planning needs.
