About

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden offers a variety of spaces in a gorgeous and serene setting with year-round beauty in our more than 40 acres of gardens. Exquisite facilities and superb food provided by the Garden鈥檚 exclusive in-house caterer make this a unique setting for your dream wedding.

The Bloemendaal House, with views of Lakeside Lake, is an ideal facility for rehearsal dinners and a favored location for wedding receptions. The House is embellished with period antiques and furnishings reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts Era. The first-floor includes formal rooms with fireplaces and cozy side rooms. In addition, there are covered verandas, extensive brick patios and a 30x60ft party tent so your guests can enjoy a night under the stars.

The "Gateway to the Garden", the classic, neo-Georgia style Robins Visitors Center provides dramatic views of our Conservatory. The formal Robins Room, with elegant chandeliers and tall French doors, is the perfect setting for guests to dine before moving into the more casual Garden Cafe to dance the night away. Guests can enjoy access to three terraces all with seating and two of which have stunning views of the Central Garden.

Set in the Asian Valley, the Robins Tea House is an oasis of tranquility and beauty. With its panoramic views of nature鈥檚 year-round splendor, the Tea House is the perfect setting for intimate evenings in the Garden.

    Just Stunning

    Our wedding at LGBG was one for the books. Looking back at photos, everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) was beautiful. The rose garden at 6pm is so pretty it looks like a movie. Our friends and family loved the venue too. Lots of parking, great reception spaces, optional outdoor and indoor venues. One of our friends loved it so much that they asked if they could wed there as well!

    Lovely Micro Wedding on the Lake!

    We had the most perfect micro wedding at the Streb Gazebo right on the lake! The package was so reasonably priced and the setting was perfect. Jaclyn and her team were so easy to work with from our first inquiry to the wedding day. We had the opportunity after the ceremony to take pictures anywhere in the Garden. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

    Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's reply:

    Hi Hannah,

    We're so glad to hear you had a great experience at the Garden, and we're very grateful you chose us to host your special day!
