Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden is a beautiful public Garden in the heart of Kernersville's Historic Downtown. Our Carriage House was designed to accomodate a full range of events including business and nonprofit events, weddings, receptions, rehersal dinners and parties. Our surrounding gardens provide the perfect backdrop for any occasion.
The Carriage House offers a Conference Room and an elegant 2,400 square-foot Ballroom opening onto the Patio Terrace.
The Gregory M. Ciener Ballroom features a dramatic, vaulted ceiling over half the space and on the other side of the Ballroom, a dropped ceiling for more intimate dining. The Ballroom accommodates 150 guests for dinner (seated) and dancing, up to 225 for Meetings, Lectures and Classes (theatre style), and up to 275 for Cocktail or Other Events (standing room only). French doors from the Ballroom open on the Patio Terrace with a view of the gardens.
Patio Terrace and Courtyard Garden is constructed with blue stone, surrounded by a stacked stone wall, anchored by two stone planters, the Patio Terrace is the outflow for the Ballroom. The Courtyard Garden resembles gardens found in Charleston. Seasonal containers and vines can be found here.
A receiving kitchen adjoins the Ballroom and is equipped to accommodate the service of food prepared by caterers.
Our goal for special events at the Garden is to provide a magnificent garden surrounding a lovely facility that can accommodate a full range of events; such as corporate luncheons, cocktail socials, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions.
With stunning gardens, a spacious Ballroom located in our Carriage House, adjoining the Patio Terrace, and Conference Room, you can host an indoor event that brings in the outdoors.

We looked at many venues in the Piedmont-Triad area, and for the value, this far exceeded all of the others. Highly recommend!
I have so many good things to say but I think the best way to convey how wonderful this venue is, is to share my experience with you. When I first visited, I was in AWE of how gorgeous this place is. Then after speaking with Lynn who couldn't be sweeter and more caring about our wedding and also realizing how reasonable the price is compared to other venues in the area even though this place was so beautiful and perfect, we pretty much immediately knew this was it. There is so much charm to this venue. It's hard to take it all in unless you're there and given a chance to walk around, so go visit! Once you book, the communication line is open and they are there to answer any questions in a timely manner.
Our wedding was a fairytale – and that’s the word most of our guests chose when they raved about the wedding. It was just the most beautiful day! I’m not sure if people say this to all brides, but I cannot even tell you how many people have told me that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to. Thank you to everybody at Paul J Ciener Botanical Gardens!
