Does the garden have an indoor facility? No. All events are in the Main Garden. We do now have a smaller Friends Garden which is tented that smaller events can be held in.

How long do we get for a wedding ceremony? Two Hours: 1/2hr for guest to arrive, 1/2hr for ceremony one hour for photos.

Can we buy an extra hour for a ceremony only? The only time this could happen is if you were the first wedding of the day. If you are using the garden for formal photos then the charge would be $200.00, and we are still setting up until it is time to open the gates for your guests. If you are going to invite you guests in early then the cost would be $850.00 for the hour due having the garden ready by the time your guest would be arriving.

Does the garden furnish music for weddings? (Ceremony only) Yes, we do have traditional wedding music you can choose from during your consultation appointment.You may also burn your own cd, which we will need at the rehearsal to make sure to plays on our equipment. You must have a DJ or live music for your reception.
