The Courtyard Wedding Ceremony & Reception Location
The possibilities are endless in our large outdoor Courtyard on the south side of the Gardens' entrance. The Courtyard at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is ideal for a tented wedding, reception, or other event, during any season. The graveled area holds a spacious, 40' x 60' tent, offering more area than some indoor venues—and also one of the most affordable spaces—on the Mendocino Coast. The site overlooks our Perennial Garden and is just steps from the Heritage Rose Garden and Display House, home to our Fuchsia and Begonia Collections. This site is adjacent to the entry Plaza, which serves as a perfect terrace for a greeting area or cocktail hour with a stunning view. The Courtyard is also ideal for a wedding or event during the rainy season—guests will be warm and dry inside the beautifully decorated tent while looking out at the surrounding lovely garden.
