MAGC was everything and more!
We couldn’t be happier with the venue we chose for our wedding. It was a magical and beautiful venue to get married at. Stacey and Gina were very helpful during the process and we loved everything about MAGC. Definitely recommend getting married here!Sent on 07/15/2019

Very happy with our choice - beautiful venue and great people!
We reserved the Garden Room for our 120 guest wedding. We worked with Stacey and we were really happy with her responsiveness and professionalism. She had all the answers and even provided a really helpful brochure when we sat down with her while we were touring wedding venues that was complete with recommended vendors that they've worked with in the past.
The venue was beautiful and we are very happy with how the whole day went. The whole day was perfect and we could not be happier with how everything turned out and how affordable it was.Sent on 01/24/2019

Marin Art and Garden Center (MAGC) is absolutely breathtaking and exactly what my husband and I were looking for on our special day. Stacey and Gina from MAGC were very supportive and helpful leading up to and executing my wedding day.Sent on 05/15/2018

The Marin Art & Garden is one of Marin's Premier Wedding Venues. The beautiful gardens are a perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. They offer so many options for the brides, indoor/outdoor ceremonies, cocktail hour and receptions. The Livermore room is a spacious well lite room with large windows that bring the outside indoors and the private, intimate Garden Room is unmatched in the Bay Area. We have catered 100's of wedding here over the years and we gladly recommend it to our brides. Stan & Gay Vail All Seasons Catering Mill Valley
The Marin Art and Garden Center is one of the most popular wedding sites in Marin County. It offers lovely gardens as well as an indoor area. There are 2 different areas for receptions, and both have kitchens. This should definitely be on the list of the best places for weddings and other parties in the North Bay.
We love Marin Art & Garden Center! QMEP has been performing here for over 15 years now and I think it is truly one of the best wedding venues in the San Francisco Bay Area. There are quite a few beautiful settings to choose from to host your ceremony and there are a couple of unique reception options as well. This place has indoor and outdoor options featuring a gazebo, fountain, courtyard setting, woodsy area, garden patio with a room and a nice reception hall called the Livermore Pavilion. The staff here has always been very helpful and really professional. We have always enjoyed working with them and the caterers that are recommended. It is out of the city but not too far in a small town called Ross. If you are looking around for a venue, do yourself a favor and check this place out. It is a real jewel!
