Red Butte Garden is Utah’s Botanical Garden that is both a showcase and a museum, displaying rich botanical diversity. With over 100 acres including display and natural gardens, walking paths and natural areas with hiking trails, Red Butte Garden is the largest botanical garden in the Intermountain West.

Fragrance Garden: Experience mountain and valley vistas in this aromatic setting under a wisteria arbor. With meandering sandstone pathways, the Fragrance Garden features plants chosen specifically to entice your senses and enhance your event, from lilacs and lavender to seasonal mock and crocus.

Orangerie: With its Garden ambiance, our spacious indoor conservatory can host events year-round. Exotic flowering plants and citrus trees are framed by mountain and valley views, making the indoor Orangerie a scenic location for receptions, formal dinners, and ceremonies.

Rose Garden: A grand and welcoming entrance, rose arbors, an expansive lawn, plus a waterfall make this a charming and memorable location for weddings.

Rose House: The Rose House is adjacent to our two rose gardens and opens up to a lovely shaded patio space with views of the foothills; it is an ideal setting for a small ceremony, reception or rehearsal dinner.

We let you choose the special details. We provide a list of exclusive caterers who know the venue and provide excellent quality, pricing, and service. They offer a wide variety of menus, so you can select a menu ideal for your special event. For all of the other meaningful details; such as the flowers, decorations, music, photography and cake; you may choose any vendor that works best for you.

And as a gift for your guests, the rental fee includes admission for them to enjoy the Garden during your event. What a wonderful way to spend a day or evening!

    Absolute dream venue with an amazing team!

    We booked this venue in 2020 after falling in love with the gorgeous rose garden and of course we couldn’t have the original wedding but the wedding team at the garden were so incredibly kind and helpful during that awful situation. We were able to rebook for this June and the wedding was everything we dreamed of, absolutely stunning and Amy and Liz were so incredibly helpful the whole time. The red butte was the absolute perfect place for our wedding and I am so glad we got to have our prefect day here.

    Perfect in every way possible

    We chose the Rose Garden and Rose House for our wedding ceremony and reception at Red Butte and it was unbelievably perfect. The gardens are absolutely stunning, and the Rose House has such a unique and modern vibe that fit so well with our aesthetic. The venue was perfect for our small, intimate wedding. Robin and the event staff were wonderful to work with. Everything ran smoothly and all of our guests loved it!

    Beautiful Place - Amazing People

    Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!! What a venue. What incredible Great people! I can not say enough about how perfect Red Butte Gardens and their staff were for our wedding. Robin and her crew were so good to us and our guest during the whole process. We had many out of town guest that wanted to see the venue before the big day, and she accommodated all our needs. These was my first time to plan a wedding, as a Mom, and she and Annie were so kind to help with all my questions and give advice to all my needs. They have list of vendors that help your day go smoothly, some I used, some I found on my own, either way they treated them all so well. The night of the wedding, they had people lined up to help with ever detail, and boy did they. Many guest said it was the Best wedding event they had ever went to. I truly can not say enough about how great the evening was. Thanks so much to all the wonderful people that make it happen.

Red Butte Gardens is a unique location located above the University of Utah, on the north east side of the Salt Lake Valley. It in no way can be compared to anywhere else. The views are incredible, but you are really missing out if you don't explore the grounds. When you combine the staff and venue, you get a perfect score. If you are getting married, or want to see beautiful gardens on the side of a mountain, make sure you check out the Red Butte Gardens.
