    Love this venue!!

    River Garden is such a hidden gem! Fully private, plenty of parking in their dedicated lot and on the adjacent neighborhood streets, and completely gorgeous on the inside. Ceremonies and receptions can be configured in several different ways throughout the space so couples can come in and add their own style to the already beautiful grounds. The crowning jewel of River Garden is the massive waterfall. It’s such a unique, striking feature and one that I haven’t seen at many other San Diego venues! The staff was friendly and professional and there was a dedicated vendor break room, which is always appreciated. We can't wait to shoot more weddings at this lovely venue!

    We had to relocate clients last minute and glad we found River Garden! Once you enter the giant wooden gates, you find yourself in a unique lush setting. Beautiful people to work with. Patience and very helpful.
