About Christianson's Nursery & Greenhouse

Welcome to Christianson’s Schoolhouse and Gardens
Conveniently located minutes off the I-5 corridor, Christianson's Nursery & Greenhouse sits among the Skagit Valley farmlands. Our Meadow Schoolhouse and English Rose Gardens offer an intimate and romantic setting for weddings and special occasions. Guests enjoy views of Mount Baker to the east and sunsets over the quaint town of La Conner and the San Juan Islands to the west. Our beautiful gardens, historic architectural buildings, and authentically restored glass greenhouses are considered a favorite among Pacific Northwest garden enthusiasts.


The Meadow Schoolhouse and Gardens
Built-in the year 1888, the 600 square foot Meadow Schoolhouse has been lovingly restored and positioned within a picture-perfect English Rose Garden. The Schoolhouse’s approximate capacity allows for 60 seated, 10 standing guests, and the Rose Garden’s (located outside behind the Schoolhouse) approximate capacity allows for 150 guests. Experience the beauty of notable modern and old-fashioned roses. You and your guests will be surrounded by colorful and fragrant blooms, boxwood hedges, enclosed by sentinel deciduous and evergreen trees.


The Teacher's Cottage
Nestled into the southwest corner of the gardens, The Teacher's Cottage stands as another cherished nod to Skagit Valley’s rich history. The rustic cottage is adorned with antique furnishings and vintage accents. A quaint little cottage decorated in romantic tones and feminine finds, it beckons bridal parties to gather in preparation for the very special day. Private washrooms are made available for our guests in this private event space.


The Oak Room
A leisurely stroll down Oak Drive, guests will enjoy a visit with Rosie the llama and her diminutive goats and red hen friends on our mini-farm. The Oak Room is styled with vintage leather chairs, antique decor, and a working retro icebox ready to store snacks and refreshing beverages. The groom and his party will enjoy the casual out-of-doors setting and the views from the Old Granary loading dock in the shade of the old fir trees.


The Front House and Adjoining Propagation House
Additional venue space is made available during evenings (6 to 10 p.m.) inside our beautifully restored glass greenhouses which feature the seasonal year-round blooming foliage of annuals, nursery plants, and hanging baskets. The subtle cooing of the paired doves in the fully restored 1946 Propagation House is a perfect backdrop for photoshoots, cocktail receptions, and intimate sit down dinners. (Indoors approximate capacity: 60 seated, 75 standing.)


Christianson's invites you to come out for a tour and explore our unique offerings to host weddings, bridal showers, and special private or public events.

    June Wedding

    Having our wedding at Christianson’s nursery was an absolute dream! We opted to have an intimate ceremony after our original plans fell through due to the pandemic and we both agree it was better than what would’ve been. Christianson’s rates are very reasonable compared to most venues, which allowed us to spend money on other things to make the day special. Every inch of the nursery has flowers in bloom and is very well cared for. Emma was the most professional/sweet person I’ve worked with throughout the planning process, which made a very stressful situation not feel that way. I highly recommend having your wedding here.

    Simply Beautiful

    COVID-19 forced my husband and I to postpone our “big” wedding out a year. We didn’t want to wait another year to get married so Emma came to the rescue. We explained to her that we wanted a small quick ceremony and she was amazing to work with. She offered the school house and gardens completely free of charge. Everything is SO beautiful there. We didn’t even need to decorate. The school house has its own charm and the gardens and nursery areas speak for themselves. It was truly a perfect day and we are so thankful to Christiansons for their hospitality!
