Dahlia Garden Wedding Site

Ceremony Location

Celebrating the most important day of your life in the most exquisite, romantic, and unique atmosphere. Invite your family and friends to join you in a spectacular seaside garden surrounded by brilliant flashes of color. This formal, manicured lawn has a covered stage and offers glimpses of the ocean through the pines. Surrounded by dahlias blooming from July through October this is our most popular site for wedding ceremonies and photographs. The Dahlia Garden is nestled in a pine forest adjacent to towering eucalyptus trees. 

All proceeds directly benefit our non-profit botanical garden and its mission is to engage and enrich lives by displaying and conserving plants in harmony with our Northern California coastal ecosystems and to preserve public access to the coast.
