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.

My new husband and I couldn’t be any more thrilled about having just gotten married at MAGC! We knew from the moment we walked onto the property that we would get married there. We wanted a casual, intimate, romantic garden feel and MAGC far exceeded our expectations. We had our ceremony on the Garden Lawn, dinner on the Stratford gardens, and the last of our reception in the Livermore Pavilion. We originally felt that the space would be too large for what ended up being a smaller wedding of about 70 guests, but it was so perfect. Our guests had plenty of space to roam around and we received endless complements on the property’s gorgeous whimsical setting. The reception areas are full of string lighting, which pretty much sold me immediately, and we were able to hang lanterns inside the Livermore Pavilion as well. That small touch really took the whole space to an even more romantic and unique level. The events manager, Stacey Kamp, answered all of questions promptly and efficiently throughout the entire wedding planning process. We truly have no regrets and have nothing but wonderful things to say about MAGC, it is the PERFECT place to say I DO! And with never-ending picturesque backdrops, there is so much to fall in love with.

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!
