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.

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

This venue is a hidden gem!
I dont even know where to start with how grateful I am for this venue. Growing up I was never the kind of girl who planned out her dream wedding, so just trying to find a venue seemed like a daunting task. I knew that I wanted a nice outdoor venue for a medieval themed wedding but after 2 weeks of searching I was starting to think that the only outdoor venues were barns, vineyards or country clubs. Then once I found Harmony Gardens I thought “this is perfect!” I loved that the venue was a one-stop-shop. They have an amazing Day-of coordinator included in the rental fee and a list of their preferred/recommended vendors for everything else. All the vendors we picked from the list were amazing and we regularly referred to them as “the dream team”.
The on-site staff are all amazing. Janice and Morgan were fantastic and very helpful in the months leading up to the wedding with helping answer any questions and provide suggestions etc. Everything during the wedding went off without a hitch! I barely had to worry about anything the day of. They were on top of making sure everything was in place and that everyone knew where they were going. I'm forever grateful for the two of them making our wedding as perfect as it was.Sent on 03/06/2019

Magical Venue, Amazing Support
It was back in 2014 when we stumbled upon Harmony Gardens, during the first year of our engagement. We took a trip to visit the venue and instantly knew it was the place we wanted to get married. However, after much consideration, we decided to put our marriage off until we were in a better situation to spend and plan. Despite this, we were set on Harmony Gardens.
It turns out 2019 was our year! We contacted Harmony Gardens again, and they readily set us with an appointment to come visit the gardens. We were smitten the first time we had seen HG four years prior, but revisiting made us realize what a gem these gardens really are. The owners made incredible upgrades to the amenities that makes the space seem like out of a fairytale! The owners are constantly adding to the outdoor-wedding experience. We can only imagine what they have in mind next, and are excited for what it will be like for future brides and grooms!
This venue can only be described as stunningly gorgeous and the true essence of what nature Florida provides. The land is well taken care of and hard work is put in to maintain its beauty. The scenery is just what we were looking for as the backdrop for our special day.
In addition to the natural backdrop, there are great facilities to use for the wedding. The venue has everything a wedding needs to keep guests comfortable. We cannot get over how wonderful it was to use the mosaic heart dancefloor...truly one of the highlights. The bridal suite was spacious; the makeup artist and hair stylist had no problems setting up. The dining pavilion is goooooorgeous!
There is value in this venue beyond just the space. Harmony Gardens has brilliant day-of coordinators. Everyone involved with this venue worked so incredibly hard. They really did care to make everything perfect and special. We originally communicated with Morgan, who is communicative, organized, and just as excited for your day as you are! Our day-of coordinator was Janice, who is an absolute ROCKSTAR. She communicated with all the vendors and completely took that stress off us and our family. She met with us prior to the wedding and also for the rehearsal at the venue. She provided so much assistance the day of, we were all blown away! Thank you for making our day so magical, Janice!
If you’re looking for an outdoor Florida-vibes or magical-gardens wedding venue, you should absolutely look no further than Harmony Gardens. Every person we have spoken to regarding our wedding has praised the venue. Many have said it was the “best wedding they’ve ever been to”. It feels wonderful to hear that as the bride and groom and we have Harmony Gardens to thank for that.

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.
