Harmony Gardens Tropical Wedding Garden is an outdoor wedding venue located in De Leon Springs, Florida. This venue originally served as a retreat for Joe King and his wife. He founded Aragon Ranch almost 50 years ago and it remained in the family for many years after. It was his wife that originally started the renowned gardens that are a highlight of the venue. First their son and now their granddaughter Leah and her husband Joe took over and began tending to the property. Today, they offer up their gardens for couples to exchange their vows in and experience an unforgettable oasis as their wedding backdrop.

The entire Harmony Gardens Tropical Wedding Garden rests on the 35-acre ranch. Due to its setting in the sub-tropics, you will be surrounded by plenty of charming oaks and tropical plants such as exotic gingers, heliconias, elephant ears, and more.

Perfect venue for a perfect day
We were actually the first couple at Harmony Garden to be impacted by COVID. Our wedding date was March 21, 2020 and less then a week before the wedding, we made the tough call to reschedule it. Morgan at HG was a gem to work with and so utterly supportive. The one good thing is that we more or less got to plan 2 weddings with her! :) The venue itself is unique, not only for the beautiful surroundings but "sectioned" layouts. Guests could enjoy a quiet dinner without having to shout over the dance floor music. With COVID still in full swing with our rescheduled date, we were grateful to have an outdoor wedding that offered plenty of opportunities for guests to wander and social distance. We really couldn't say more positive things about the location and staff. You'll have endless beautiful memories and pictures if you choose Harmony Gardens for your big daySent on 03/06/2021

The BEST outdoor venue!
This outdoor venue is GORGEOUS - you can save money on decorations because this venue is already stunning!! No matter the time of year these gardens are lush and vibrant. Something about this place just brings you to life! The market lighting throughout the garden sets the atmosphere we were looking for, sooo dreamy. They offer a rainy day back up plan for the ceremony and A/C cottages for preparations the day-of. There are so many places throughout the garden which allows for the guests to mingle while enjoying all of the natural beauty. Our day-of coordinator Morgan and her helper were both amazing! Quick to get us anything we requested, drinks when we were taking photos and kept all of us right on schedule. Anything I needed, at any time, was fulfilled by Morgan and the Harmony Gardens team, 5 stars!!Sent on 01/14/2021

Best day of my life!
Choosing Harmony Gardens was the easily the best decision for my wedding planning. From the moment we entered the venue, I knew that nothing else would compare to it. Morgan, our day of coordinator, was so easy to talk to and work with. Her demeanor and expertise was exactly what we needed. And she was so much more than a day of coordinator. She helped me whenever I needed her for the whole process!
The gardens are breathtaking and so beautiful. I had no stresses on my wedding day because everything was taken care of in advance. There was even a back up plan for rain, and thankfully we didn’t need it. The whole day was so amazing.
I would highly recommend Harmony Gardens. Not only because the venue itself is perfection, but because of the people that work there to make your day magical. I can’t express enough how happy I was to be able to have my special day at such a romantic venue.Sent on 03/28/2020
What an absolutely beautiful location for any event, but especially for that special day of a wedding. Spring brings out all of the blossoms on the variety of plants throughout the venue, especially the azaleas. And when the jasmine is in bloom - the fragrance is electrifying. This outdoor venue has all you could need - Bride's room, groom's room, chandeliers and torches throughout, great bar area, rose garden wedding area, and so much more.
As beautiful as Harmony Gardens were when we shot a wedding there , the owners are refusing to rest on what they have, funding even more improvements to this pristine property which is quickly becoming the jewel of Central Florida. Yes it's a drive --- but what you get at the end of that drive is paradise.

I've worked quite a few weddings at Harmony Gardens. They provided an excellent background and venue for both the ceremony and reception. They made all necessary provisions for bad weather. I recommend them highly.
