Meadow Lawn Wedding Site

Ceremony Location

The Meadow Lawn offers an intimate and picturesque setting encircled by 'Saffron Queen' rhododendrons that bloom from mid-April through May and other plantings in bloom through summer. The Meadow Lawn includes a manicured oval-shaped lawn, small stage, and seating wall sheltered by surrounding trees. A free-standing canopy (20’ x 20’ max) is allowed for your ceremony.

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.
