Although nature provides the most striking decor at the Garden, we also have items for rent to make your ceremony even more special. Archways and flower urns are available. Prices include setup and takedown by staff. Since items are stored on-site, there are no pick-up or delivery charges. Arch rental: $150, Flower Urns: $50/pair.
You may also choose to bring decorative items of your own. All decor items must be approved in advance by the Wedding Coordinator.
The beauty of the concert harp goes hand in hand with the remarkable setting of the Garden. We can arrange for live music at your wedding, provided by renowned musician Terry McDade. You can customize your musical offerings by adding extra musicians or vocalists. Or, you may prefer to bring your own musicians. Because of the special outdoor nature of our facility, be sure to consult with a Wedding Coordinator prior to making arrangements.
